Optional Accessories:  When someone is buying a New LiftWalker we 
include one set of each of the things that the buyer needs to have success 
positioning  the particular disabled person or persons.  These 
would be included in the price of the New LiftWalker, except for a second 
set of thigh prompts. The prices listed here are for replacement or 
additional accessories.  


1.  MEDIUM THIGH PROMPTS.
These are used to support the weight of the patient without putting any
pressure on the groin.  Mostly used for those whose upper body strength
does not allow good posture, or cannot hold posture for long enough.
Basically unweights the patient, removing up to 100% of body weight off of
feet and legs.  Mediums fit around age 7 through 250 pound adult.  $287.00

2.  SMALL THIGH PROMPTS
Same description as above but for very small children, around 2 years up
to maybe 9 years old.  $225.00

3.  ADDUCTOR STRAP (D-Ring strap)
If thigh prompts are used and the patient hasn't enough adductor muscle
strength to keep legs together then the D ring strap is used.  Attaches by
velcro to the thigh prompts and is adjustable.  $18.00WP_20150525_010

4.  BUTTOCKS PROMPT (newer style)
This is a simple belt that keeps the thigh prompts from rotating on the
legs while the patient is being lifted to standing.  Usually not needed if
the patient has enough upper body strength to keep from sagging downward
for 10 or 20 seconds while standing up.  Very helpful when needed.  Easy
to put on and saves the work of thigh prompt readjustment after standing
up.  Some videos show the old style buttocks prompt which is a longer used. 
The old version is a long strap, both ends connecting to make a circle.   
I find the new style easier to use. $22.00

5.  SEATED LIFT/TRANSFER STRAP
This is a set of straps that allow the patient to be lifted and transferred
entirely in a seated position.  Useful if you need to put someone on the 
toilet or another chair. It's useful especially to day programs, board and
care homes, and rest homes who have extremely fragile patients.  $27.00

6.  PELVIC POSITIONER
This is usually helpful for spinal patients.  It serves to counteract the
weakness or unresponsiveness of the glute, lower back, hamstrings, and or
abdominal muscles that allow the buttocks to extend backward and make an
ineffective standing/walking posture.
$49.60

7.  BACK PAD
This is a simple pad that attaches over the back belt if you have a
patient with skin integrity issues.  It's a bit of an annoyance to deal
with if you don't need it.  But if you have anyone who needs it then it is
helpful.   $32.00

8.  WRIST WRAPS (one for each wrist)
This is a restraint to help the wrists and hands stay down on the forearm
tube.
 Usually for spastic patients or those unable to grip.  Not usually
necessary but some people think it's very useful.  $20.00 for a set.

9.  WEIGHTED ANKLE PROMPTS (one for each leg, each 4.5 lbs)
Initially the ankle prompts were to keep the knees of severely contracted
legs apart so that reciprocal steps could be taken.  But then weight was
added because some patients also could not extend their legs to the ground
without a downward tension force.  Also found that they are useful to
quiet or dampen patients with a wild step.  Also serve as weight training.
$176.00 for a set

10.  ANTI HYPER-EXTENSION PROMPT
Sometimes a patient, usually with high spasticity, will lean WAY back.  I
like to stand behind such a patient and lean into them to help get an
upright posture.  But you can also use this prompt to help move the
patient forward to an upright posture.  Especially if you're short handed
and need one aid to be up front pulling and operating the lift switch.  In
my experience these patients usually have cerebral palsy.  $58.00
