  • The NF-Walker is a gait trainer enabling children, even with very low motor function, to stand and walk independently, while keeping hands free. This initiates better social interaction and participation in everyday activities. In addition, through more mobility the level of physical activity is increased and time spent being sedentary reduced, which has shown to have positive health effects.
