Walking aid for lumbago.

What is lumbago?

Lumbago is a term used to describe pain in the lower back. This term is more commonly used to refer to back pain. These pains can be acute or chronic.

Many causes can lead to back pain, including :

  • physical or psychological trauma,
  • false movement,
  • degenerative lesions of vertebral discs or vertebrae (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, etc.)
  • excessive effort (poor positioning or intensity) or repetitive strain

These pains can be exacerbated by stress and anxiety.

A vicious circle can set in. Lack of movement and fear of movement can worsen a person’s health situation. “I hurt so I don’t move. I don’t move so I hurt, and so on…”

Faced with such pain, the body naturally seeks a position that doesn’t hurt (too much). This is the analgesic position. When on the move, he adopts a pain-relieving gait. Any false move can significantly increase discomfort. The contractions required to keep the body in balance can lead to these painful discharges.

Why Wheeleo®️ can help you

When the trunk is bent forward, the pressure exerted on the vertebrae is very high.

Constant support on an object (furniture, cane, rollator, etc.) reduces these pressures and the contractions needed to keep the body stable. When it comes to getting around, the use of a conventional cane is not an ideal solution. A cane has to be lifted with every step. While one moment it’s resting correctly on the ground, the next second it’s unable to do so, resulting in pain.

Each time the cane is lifted, this can generate a slight imbalance that accentuates the downforce as soon as it’s back in contact with the ground. It alternates between charging and discharging.

The Wheeleo®️ walker provides a solution for people with lumbago. Its user can lean on it 100% of the time. He’ll be relieved most of the time, whether he’s leaning on his left or right leg. Support is continuous but weaker.

What’s more, compared with a conventional walker, Le Wheeleo®️ is much easier to handle, freeing up one hand for activities of daily living.
