I purchased the Aspire walker on recommendation of the physio at Caulfield Rehab Melbourne Victoria December 2018. Initially I thought that $Au600 was too expensive in respect of a walker when you could obtain an inferior aluminium basket Walker for under $Au200. I have used both vehicles in hospital and at home and the Aspire Walker is superior in the following aspects. 1. Lighter weight and carbon fibre construction in comparison to aluminium. 2. It folds up like a deck chair in seconds by pulling on the handle on the seat without having to remove the metal basket and then clips together with a red button. 3. Once it it is folded it is possible to place the Walker on the back seat or in the space in the back seat of the taxi or motor vehicle without having to use the motor vehicle boot. 4. The wheels and the construction of The Walker allow it to turn 360 degrees in its own length without running over your feet. 4. It is much lighter unit and is able to be picked up by one hand assuming the carry bag is empty. 5. When it is folded it effectively seals up the carry bag so your precious possessions such as phone, keys do not fall out. 6. I have received a number of favourable comments about the appearance of the Walker saying that it looks very smart and modern. 7. I am 6ft / 187cm and the handle height is easily adjustable to suit me by two tap handles in seconds. 8. The braking system is very efficient and brakes and also locks the back wheels with a very efficient sleeve system in direct contact with the back wheels. 9. All the fittings on the Walker appear to be of High Quality construction and the seat is rated to 130 kg. 10. Surprisingly the wheels appear to be constructed of a lightweight plastic aluminium look-a-like to reduce weight and the solid rubber slick tyres for maximum grip. 11. At the date of this review I have used the Walker for approximately 1 month including journeys to the shops of up to 1 km. For bulk grocery shopping I use Woolworths online and home delivery. 12. If you can afford the additional expenditure I would recommend this particular Walker.
