My aid to walking fatigue

Sorry should’ve thought someone would want to check it out

This particular stool was as high as we could get because I’m tall others may be a different height.

Going to have to get a small folding ‘Poncho’ to keep in the net bag behind my wheelchair. Met some friends at a beachside cafe for coffee this afternoon, but the weather took a turn for the worst while we were in there. Wind really got up and that fine, penetrating rain. A good 10 minute trundle from the car-park, so by the time we got back and the 'chair was stowed, it looked like we’d been in for a dip fully clothed.
Luckily there’s a branch of Careco just around the corner, so that’s due a visit today. My wife looked so miserable whilst pushing me. But she’s a wonderful little woman, and getting smaller all the time.

Well it supported me on a known flat surface wouldn’t recommend any stool on an uneven surface without a family member or caregiver in attendance. The stool was great as a short term support to enable me to recover from fatigue plus it was tall enough for me to get up from with my stick as a support

You can get one legged stools to perch on for that sort of terrain but I don’t know how you’d get on with one of those…probably more likely to topple over on it I suppose :thinking:
My sister uses one of these when golfing.


I was thinking of getting one of these for a few years now, but I usually don’t think about it until I’m out walking :confounded: :crazy_face:

The trouble with this type - if you’re a little dodgy on your pins - is that the moment you stand (unless you’re very quick, they fall over. also, a good sense of balance is needed. That can be an invitation to an accident. Absolutely fine if you’re hale & hearty.

Yes, that’s exactly what I was thinking. It would be ok for me now; I just don’t like having to carry too much when out walking, I like to keep my hands free for falls so I like to travel light :smile:

Hey @mrfrederickson this would be a good research for you to get involved in :smile:

@mrfrederickson This is a great tool for respite from walking etc. It is also used by many artists for outdoor plein air painting.

And now for your next challenge…

At strength & balance we have a chair under us for the squat; but last Monday a couple of us managed to do it without the chair and ohh but our legs burned :sweat_smile: but well worth the push to strengthen the legs.

No they aren’t, I managed to fall off one backwards before the stroke. Much to the amusement of my so called mates. I’d be super careful if you are thinking of getting one.

Hi clobbers as stated before you should only use with a carer or family member in attendance and ensure that the surface is even , all such devices have an inherent safety risk , I’m well practiced at getting up from a low point safely so do not consider if you cannot master this feature.

I Like it - but it is a little lower than I expected but still good…
