My mother in law was so pleased with the walker. She was using a wheel chair and using her feet to move herself along while waiting for her knee surgery. She will need the walker for her rehab and can still use it as she did the wheel chair until she is more mobile. I was so impressed with the quality of the walker for the price I thought of getting one for my mother as well, but she is short like I am and it was too tall for my feet to reach the floor. My husband saw the same item at our local drug store for 3 times the price.
