The Midland Parallel Bar Glider, available through Warrenville, Ill-based company Patterson Medical, is built to be ideal for patients who require more assistance and support when practicing functional ambulation skills. The product is positioned on parallel bars, according to the company’s website, and is designed to provide assistance to patients with hemiplegia, extremity or trunk weakness, balance issues, or those who cannot bear weight on the wrists or hands.

The site notes that patients are supported and bear weight on padded forearm platforms that adjust laterally from 9 inches to 22 inches. The glider is engineered to adjust easily without tools and fits fixed- and adjustable-width parallel bars with widths from 15 inches to 28 inches.

Its maximum user weight capacity is 300 pounds.
