A walker is a tool for disabled or elderly people who need additional support to maintain balance or stability while walking .

This bend is needed to allow for proper blood circulation through the arms as the walker is used.
An assistive cane is a walking stick used as a crutch or mobility aid. Canes can help redistribute weight from a lower leg that is weak or painful, improve stability by increasing the base of support and provide tactile information about the ground to improve balance.
