In-Step The U-Step 2 WalkerThe U-Step 2 Walker - Scooters and Mobility
We created the U-Step 2 to increase your independence. The secret is in our patented U-shaped base. Its ultra-stable foundation braces you in every direction.
It is not like pushing a typical walker. Instead, the U-Step 2 surrounds you and moves with you. You will feel as stable as you would feel holding onto another person’s arm.
The innovative braking system is easy to use and puts you in complete control. The U-Step 2 will not roll unless you are ready to walk. When you lightly squeeze either brake release lever, the unit will roll with you. Once you release the lever, the unit will stop immediately. This feature is particularly helpful when standing up from a chair because the unit will not roll away from you.

Why is it easier to maneuver with the U-Step?
Seven wheels allow you to swivel and manage uneven surfaces with more stability than standard walkers can offer. The U-shaped base promotes better posture by reducing the tendency to lean forward when walking.
If the U-Step rolls so easily, might it roll away from me?
Two features prevent that from happening. The hand brakes are configured as “pull-to-go”, in contrast to typical hand brakes. Also, a set of variable-resistance pads regulate the two large wheels on the base, according to the needs of the particular patient.
Is the U-Step only intended for Parkinson’s patients?
The U-Step offers more stability for anyone who requires a walker. Those with conditions such as Parkinson’s, MS, stroke, Ataxia or PSP often find that the U-Step is the only walker that provides maximum mobility for them.
How is the U-Step 2 different from the original U-Step?
The U-Step 2 uses larger front casters to better manage uneven surfaces. It also folds and unfolds with a single latch instead of two levers, and it weighs three pounds less. We modified several other features, but the essential U-shaped base design and dimensions remain the same.
Do I need the LaserLight option? How does it help?
The LaserLight addresses a particular symptom: freezing gait, a condition often associated with Parkinson’s patients that inhibits leg movement due to neurological rather than muscular factors. The laser projects a bright line on the floor; this visual cue provides a stimulus that overcomes neurological-based freezing in most cases.
Is the U-Step 2 suitable for someone 4’9” tall?
For those who require it, we offer the original U-Step built with a special frame that provides a lower seat and handlebar height range. While the standard 22-inch seat height helps the user stand up more easily, people with shorter legs may not be able to place their feet on the floor when seated at that height. The lower seat height of 19.5 inches accommodates someone whose lower leg length (from the heel to the back of the knee) is less than 18 inches.
Is the U-Step 2 suitable for someone 6’5” tall?
We offer a customized handlebar that extends the maximum grip-to-floor height from 38 inches to 41 inches. We also offer a customized seat with larger dimensions than the standard seat.
