Walk N Roll™ is recommended for injuries
or ailments below the knee: for example, ankle, foot or heel fracture;
sprain; amputation of the foot or leg; ruptured Achilles tendon;
diabetic ulcer; rheumatoid arthritis of the foot; skin cancer of
the foot; bunions; gout. The Walk N Roll™
allows a patient to stand and get around easily, while his/her affected
leg rests in a horizontal position, with the knee resting gently
on the cushion. Also, the thigh muscles continue being active.
In the event of a fracture, attending physicians have found that
using the Walk N Roll™ reduces the duration
of cast immobilization and allows for a quicker rehabilitation.
In the event of an amputation of a lower limb, the Walk
N Roll™ can be used while waiting for the prosthesis
or even in addition to the prosthesis, for example, when going to
the bathroom at night.
