A very pleasant review left for us on reviews.co.uk:
“This item was my saviour having broken my fibula. I had lost my upper body strength through polymyalgia and age and using crutches and a Zimmer frame was very uncomfortable. I had resorted to using a chair when I came across the iWalk2.0 and having purchased it, followed the clear instructions I have my means of getting around in great style.”
Alan emailed me this afternoon, having received his iWALK 2.0 this morning, as follows:
Subject: I’M SENDING IT BACK
It’s no good, I will have to send it back. My wife has got me walking round the kitchen cooking lunch and washing up!
Brilliant bit of kit.
It was an honour to fit Northampton Saints’ David Ribbans with an iWALK 2.0 yesterday. The combination of an ankle and a wrist injury made using conventional crutches tricky for him but the iWALK solves that problem.
He has it set slightly low for learning but there is still some height adjustment left for when he becomes more expert on it. He’s working with club physio, Joe Booth to make sure he gets the best from his new mobility option while being able to carry on training
John Jackson is a Royal Marines Commando and a member of the Great Britain bobsleigh team. Read about how he used an iWALK 2.0 to help his recovery from a ruptured Achilles tendon here.
This just in from a new user. She found it easy to assemble and use after watching the
iWALK 2.0 manufacturer’s videos
which showed her how to assemble the iWALK 2.0 and start iWALKing successfully.
“Hi Jerry, the iWALK 2.0 arrived a couple hours ago, easily assembled, watched the videos etc and have been walking without crutches! Just amazing! Really happy with my discovery and purchase of this product. Many thanks also for speedy delivery. Kind regards, Maryam”
According to this article in The Telegraph, a foot in a medical boot fascinates men. I bet an iWALK 2.0 would have intrigued them more. Or at least made it easier to get stuff done despite her injury.
Telegraph -Air boot attracts men
I had a fascinating visit yesterday to Farleigh House, Bath Rugby’s training ground. It’s a stunning place for them to work and the physios and medics I met really seemed to like the iWALK 2.0. Even a 6ft 7in, 124kg second row forward can use the device as its strength and range of adjustment means it will do the job. More stories later once we get reports from the player who will actually be using it for real. Thanks to (uninjured) Will Spencer for acting as the guinea pig while the medical team saw what the iWALK 2.0 can do to help a player who is temporarily non weight-bearing.
The Daily Mail is getting maximum value out of its photos of Mr F on his iWALK 2.0. This was in a recent issue:
He said we’d get great photos when he called us to get one, and he wasn’t wrong! Thanks, Harrison.
Nice article in WDIV’s Click on Detroit reviewing the iWALK 2.0
Sam Moore is a photographer who recently said “Quite possibly the best invention ever for someone that has had foot surgery… nearly 5 weeks in and this iwalker has kept me sane!!!”. He uploaded a nice picture of himself using it a circuit with an air boot on his foot.
