Walking frame. District nurse helps an elderly female patient use a walking or Zimmer frame. This frame is used to give support in walking to people who are affected by weakness, pain or stiffness. It also helps people with balance problems. The frame is made of a light, strong alloy with rubber-tipped legs to prevent slipping. However, walking frames tend to get in the way of the feet, so progress is slow.
