Certainly you have noticed people with walkers who use tennis balls for braking and stability. Turns out there’s a better way.
NOVA, a supplier of independent living products has created a web site to educate people on the dangers of using tennis balls on the bottom of walkers. And they have ted it to a contest. NOVA will reward one person that kicks the tennis ball habit with $1000 and a mobility makeover.
The contest runs through July 31. Participants submit photos or video getting the tennis balls off of their walkers and are entered to win $1,000 and a mobility makeover.æ
I have to admit to being mystified about tennis balls on walkers. This new product seems cumbersome but who knows. If anyone has used these new walker gadgets please comment on this blog.
