Folding walkers, or walking frames are medical aids that are often used in rehabilitation settings to facilitate safe walking. They are used by people of all ages be it for folk who are recovering from a surgery, leg or back injury, the elderly, and for those who must get by with mobility handicaps. They are considered a safer alternative to crutches and canes as both hands are needed.
Whether a walker is used long-term or short-term, it is important to consider the individual needs of the user, and what other aids for daily living they may need in order to have as much autonomy as possible. As the use of walkers engages both hands, accessories such as baskets, bags, cup holders and trays become key in managing personal belongings and maintaining independence.
Gaining a sense of confidence is very important when adapting to a new level of mobility, both physically and psychologically. As standard folding walkers are not exactly the sexiest aids out there, we have designed a fashionable basket and bag that will help people carry their necessary belongings around safely and with dignity. So without further ado, here are some details about these two must have mobility accessories:

- A stylish option compared to standard baskets, with beautifully curved sides and an angled top.
