Neck surgery and LifeWalker

In the photos my wife Jean is being fitted for a neck brace after front and back surgery right up next to her brain, and there appears an X-Ray of her fusion

. This was one of her hardest, and most painful surgeries, and the fusion and actual replacement of two vertebrae with a titanium cage and rods with screws limits movement of her head to 10 degrees.

So, she found that her long recovery entailed problems; she encountered difficulties eating, driving, and walking. In a regular rollator walker she had to bend forward and could only see the ground in front of her; dangerous, and a very high fall risk for her. If she had her LifeWalker upright at that time, [ I designed it later ] she would have been much safer looking ahead and not down.

She did fall many times using her rollator walker.
