Caring For WalkAide

Warranty: Upon obtaining your WalkAide, please be sure to mail in your complete WalkAide Warranty card or Click Here to submit your WalkAide Warranty online.

Daily Wear: WalkAide can be worn all day, but it must be removed and turned off before going to bed at night. At first, your clinician may ask that you start wearing the WalkAide for a short period of time per day and increase the daily use gradually.

 

Battery: Depending on how much you use the WalkAide, the standard AA battery should last anywhere from one to four weeks. A red light on the stimulator indicates when the battery needs to be replaced. You can purchase AA batteries from retail stores.

Electrodes: WalkAide electrodes should be replaced every week or two for maximum effectiveness. In most cases the electrodes will last about two weeks. To order new electrodes contact the clinic where you obtained the WalkAide.

Cuff: The WalkAide Bi-Flex Cuff provides a secure fit and optimal electrode positioning. Available in 3 sizes, the WalkAide Bi-Flex Cuff is designed to work with your existing WalkAide unit. Please note that, when acquiring a new cuff, your clinician will need to retune your WalkAide system.

Caution 1: If you experience skin irritation, please stop wearing your WalkAide and contact the clinic where you obtained the WalkAide. The skin irritation may be resolved by using different electrode types or reprogramming.

Caution 2: While every effort has been made to weatherproof WalkAide, it is not designed for use in water. WalkAide should be removed before you shower, bathe or swim.
