With the tilt sensor already built in, and the ramping built into the device, my foot and knee is in better shape than before.
I was worried about walking like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. My right knee was KILLING me before the Walkaide.
I got the Walkaide and that fixed the gait issue and hiking my leg and swinging it around. That in turn helped my back and my hip pain. It didn't help my knee though, because the fine muscle in the right leg that keeps me standing, but doesn't lock out my knee, well they don't work. It's either bent or locked out.
Marletta gave me a lift to use in my shoe and now my knee doesn't hurt anymore. So from the standpoint of getting my life back this device has been wonderful.
I assure you, having this all in one unit makes this livable. I'm telling you all this, we got MS and some of us can't remember stuff like we used too. I've lost my lift for my shoe, cell phone, keys, wallet, garage door opener and anything else minimal you can think of.
I've never misplaced this all in one unit. I'm not saying the other device isn't good but it's more expensive and more pieces. Maybe if you had a stroke and didn't need to keep track of anything it would be fine. I just can't guarantee I could keep it all together. I know me too well.
