A special electromechanically adapted folding walker allows the user to stand and to ambulate for short distances. It is connected to the stimulator/control unit via a flat cable that is part of the walker and is plugged into the jack in the stimulator/control unit labeled “TO WALKER SWITCH”.
Hand-controlled switch modules are located immediately in front of the handlebar grips on the left and right sides of the walker. The buttons on these switch modules operate in a similar manner as the keypad of the stimulator/control unit, to activate “SIT/STAND”,
“STAND/SIT”, “RIGHT STEP”, “LEFT STEP” functions. Stimulus intensity "INCREASE", or "DECREASE" is also controlled through the buttons on these remote hand switch modules (see photos).
