If you’ve ever tried to use a walker in snowy conditions, you know that the walker legs, with their rubber tips, tend to get stuck in the snow, making forward mobility a major winter challenge. Some people have discovered a solution that works both indoors and in the snow – Ski Walker Glides. These rubber glides pop easily on to your walker, replacing the rubber tips and improving navigation over all irregular surfaces. You can find them at SupportPlus online for about $12 per pair.
