Essential Medical Junior Trigger Walker Review

9.4 Total Score
Essential Medical Junior Trigger Walker

This walker has a unique trigger folding mechanism that reduces pinching and is easier for small hands too. But, on top of that, it is a narrow walker for smaller seniors that is strong and also very lightweight. But, wheels will need to be ordered separately.

PROS
  • Unique folding mechanism is ouch-less and easier for smaller hands to operate
  • Aluminum construction is strong and lightweight - weighs about 4.5 lbs
  • Soft foam hand grips are more comfortable than vinyl or plastic
  • Narrow - only 22.5" wide to fit well in most homes
  • Fits users 4'6" to 5'4"
CONS
  • Does not include wheels but they can be ordered separately
User Rating: Be the first one!

The Essential Medical Supply Junior Trigger two-button folding walker adjusts to fit shorter users from 4’6″ to 5’4″ tall. As you can see, it is one of the smallest walkers you will find.

It has many other great features that make it a good walker.

Lightweight

It is made of aluminum and is very lightweight (weighs about 4.5 lbs). Because of this, it is easy to load in the car and take with you no matter where you go. Most any senior or caregiver can handle that low weight.

Comfortable Handles

Foam hand grips are soft and comfortable. Many other walkers come with vinyl or plastic hand grips which are harder and hotter on the hands. This is a nice upgrade for seniors with arthritic hands.

Narrow

This walker is about 22.5″ wide at its widest point so it should fit well in most homes. This is on the smaller end of walker widths.

Height Adjustable

It adjusts from 25″ to 32″ tall by extending or retracting the legs. No tools required! This means is will fit seniors as short as 4 feet 6 inches tall. It is one of the shortest walkers on the market.

Accessories

Comes with glide tips on the front and carpet skis on the back. This makes the walker slide across the floor easier. But wheels are a better choice!

Caution: this walker does not come with wheels! Most people use wheels with their walkers so that they do not have to pick it up each step. Click here for a set of wheels that fit this walker. Or, take a look at the Medline model below that comes with them.

Unique Trigger Folding Mechanism

But, this is more than just a short walker. A cool feature is the unique trigger button folding mechanism. See those latches underneath the handles in the photo? That’s what I’m talking about.

This feature is important because those large trigger handles are easier for small hands to use. I know that sounds backwards but it is true.

Small hands sometimes have trouble using the buttons that unlock the walker for folding. This is because the hand has to be wrapped around the tubing and the thumb has to slide the button.

But with trigger buttons, you simply use your entire hand to push up the latch. Then the walker is freed to fold up. This method is easier for hands of all sizes actually!
