The aim of this project is 1) to do a survey of the prescription process for wheeled walkers for elderly people in the Uppsala-Örebro region. Questionnaires will be sent to prescribers as well as to staff at Centres for Assistive Technology in Uppsala and Örebro respectively, 2) to study, through a randomized controlled trial, if training followed by a structured follow-up will permit a safer use of the walker, increase the usefulness for the patient and satisfaction with the assistive device than the ordinary/conventional prescription process.
