The U-Step Neuro Press Down Model, has the same leading-edge features of the standard U-Step Neuro, which accounts for the superior stability, maneuverability and control, while having press down brakes in place of the standard hand brakes.
To go, either press down on the left or right release lever or flip the back rest over and press down. Ideal for those without the hand strength to squeeze a standard hand brake.
Press Down Brake Handles – Ideal for people who cannot squeeze a hand brake. By lightly pressing down the soft rubberized brake handle it releases the brakes so you can go. Simply release the brake handle to stop.
The Press Down version of the U-Step Neuro is for those who find it difficult or who are unable to squeeze a standard hand brake with either hand. Choose Left or Right handle brake. One hand brake operates both sides of the walker.

Easily carry things in the large wire basket and safely carry food, beverages and more on the multi-purpose tray. This accessory is mounted on a slide system so that you can pull it close to you for easy access and you can push it out of the way for sitting on the seat. Mounted high for reduced bending.
This item fits U-Step Neuro walkers with serial number beginning “U3—-” (produced since 2016). The serial number may be found on the top or front side of the black box under the seat where all four braking cables enter.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I mentioned the U-Step to my physician, but s/he is not familiar with the model.
Medicare reviews each patient’s medical condition to determine whether the U-Step and U-Step 2, classified as advanced walkers, will provide mobility that a standard walker cannot provide. The criteria include “severe neurological disorder or other condition restricting the use of one hand”.
Other insurance plans may use the same criteria, or they may offer greater coverage, depending upon the particular plan.
That is by design. When walking on ramps or uneven surfaces, the rear wheels stabilize you without hindering your progress. Their spring-loaded mounting can be locked, according to the user's need.
The battery compartment inside the basket unscrews to open. Use two AA alkaline batteries oriented in the proper direction.
Over time, accumulated carpet fibers or pet hair may inhibit one or more caster wheels. In-Step provides replacement wheels for a modest charge. To remove a wheel, use a hammer as you would to remove a nail. To insert a wheel, apply force with a tool such as a rubber mallet.
