It may look easy, but standing and sitting with a walker can cause a fall or injury if you don’t do it correctly. This video will show you how to safely sit to stand and then stand to sit with a walker.

The goal with the sit to stand with a walker is to not grab the walker and pull it towards you when trying to stand up. Scoot to the edge of your chair. Slide your strong leg slightly back. Put one hand on the seat of the chair or an armrest, and the other on the walker. Lean forward to shift your weight standing up. Then repeat this in reverse to sit down with the walker.
