Too many issues and too wide for doorways
 from Houston, Texas,  Jan 8, 2013

I am not sure if I just overlooked it or wasn't paying attention, but clearly the walker was way too wide to get through doorways. I had to return it because my elderly aunt could not go into the bathroom area of the house. As a home builder myself I know that most houses are built with 2' wide openings leading to bathrooms, whether it be new houses or older houses. Especially older homes. Not everyone lives in a new house and a lot of high end new homes may have homes built with 2'6" wide door openings. However, my house does not have doorways that would allow for this walker to get through so she would have to go through sideways to accommodate this walker and she would never be able to do that especially with the larger wheels on this item either. Also, the wheels on this product were very sticky on our tile. We have marble throughout the house and the wheels may have worked better on tile that was more rough but on a smooth tile they did not want to swivel as easily which caused the wheels to get stopped up side ways instead of going forward. I finally just locked them in place like a normal walker would to make it go straight all the time so she wouldn't trip, but it didn't matter, due to the door way issue it was not going to work and had to be returned. It is really too bad because the whole reason this walker was so great was that if she got weak while walking she could sit down and rest for a minute and then continue on. We were so excited about it and were willing to pay the high price for that one great feature (the seat).
