If you're over 60, pay careful attention - iWALK2.0 might not be for you. It's difficult to put an age limit on the iWALK2.0 because physical condition and abilities vary considerably from individual to individual, especially in the elderly. iWALK2.0 has been used successfully by people in their 70's and beyond, but we've also seen people in their early 60's who could not adapt. You do not need to be an elite athlet to use the iWALK2.0 but you do need average strength and balance. Personal assessment and sound judgement are your best tools to determine if an elderly person will succeed on the iWALK2.0.
Rule of Thumb - If you can briskly walk up and down stair without using a hand rail, then you possess the physical abilities to use the iWALK2.0.
Leg length is the most important factor in determining if the iWALK2.0 will fit, however, since most people don't know their leg length, we use height as a starting point. In general, the iWALK2.0 will fit you if you are between 4'10" to 6'6" tall, however, there are exceptions. If you are between 4'10" and 5'1", there is a 95% chance that the it will fit. Similarly, if you are between 6'2" and 6'6" there is also a 95% chance it will fit. For more detailed sizing requirements, visit our website at www.iwalk-free.com.
