The Buddy Roamer is a posterior walking aid that provides partial weight bearing postural support with mobility. It has been developed to meet the needs of mild, moderate and complex users. The adjustable pelvic supports and hip guides, alongside the chest lateral supports and central bar ensures the body weight is supported while allowing the child to walk around freely and unaided.
The frame has been designed to allow easy access through doorways and down hallways, while still providing excellent stability for exploration both indoors and out. The modular system allows the walker to grow as the child does, from 12 month old babies, to toddlers and on to teenagers.
The dynamic frame naturally follows the gait pattern when walking. The swivelling front castors are easy to manoeuvre, and the posterior supports allow the Buddy Roamer to be completely open to the front, ensuring full interaction with surroundings to learn, explore and discover.

Adjustable dynamic spring
The Buddy Roamer naturally follows the gait pattern and provides spring assisted lift during the stride phase. The spring is easily adjustable to suit individual needs.
Completely open to the front
