To properly use a walker, some recall the mnemonic Wandering Wilma Always Late (Walker with Affected Leg). The patient holds the hand grips on the upper bars, takes a step, moves the walker forward, and takes another step.
The patient's elbows should be at a 15-30 degree angle while the hands are gripping the walker.
Walkers should have rubber tips on the feet of the device, except for those that have wheels.
