Going to the hospital with the walking aid
Walking with the walking aid instead of crutches
Because the balance bike is so small and light, it can easily be transported with the car. If you have a slightly smaller car you can fold the walking aid. I don't do this myself because the walking aid is already small and compact and takes up little space, so it fits in the trunk. For example, if I go to the hospital in Nijmegen for my treatment and have to walk long distances in the hospital, the balance bike always goes in the car. Arrived at the hospital I continue my way "walking / footbiking" on the balance bike and always meet a lot of people who don't know this handy walking aid. I am therefore always surprised how many people do not know that such a walking bike exists. Where I previously walked on crutches through the hospital, I now move forward with the City walking aid. Walking on crutches is quite heavy and tiring and with the walking support it costs me much less energy to move forward. With little effort you can therefore cover large distances.
Balance bike for adults reimbursed via health insurance
Various medical aids are reimbursed from the basic insurance policy of the health insurer in the Netherlands, including often a walking aid. My health insurer Menzis had several contracted suppliers, including Medipoint, who could deliver the walking aid. I contacted Medipoint and indicated that I would like to try a walking aid. A Medipoint advisor visited my home with the City walking aid so that I could test it. Then it was ordered from Van Raam and a little later the walking support was delivered to my home.
