The Buddy Roamer is a posterior walking aid that provides partial weight bearing postural support during mobility. The two rear wheels are fixed and two front castors swivel. It operates with an adjustable dynamic spring which provides a spring assisted lift during stride phase. The Roamer can be adjusted to accommodate for growth and comes in 4 different sizes.
