I just came back from my doctor and he gave me a prescription for a wheel walker and a shower chair because of the week ness in my legs and falls I do use a cane but he told me to start using the walker all the time for my gait instability. do you think this can help with my ssdi ?

Honestly -- and this is just speculation -- it will probably help, but only a tiny bit.

Although it supports claim of weakness in your legs, an ALJ and Vocational Expert *might* find that you can seek out a different type of labor/assembly job that allows you to work sitting down all of the time.

Maybe someone else will correct me if that would not happen at your age.

I believe Bobby111 is still waiting for an initial decision.  So, he needs to provide DDS with a copy of the prescription.

Bobby111  - I know you had previously said you were losing insurance as of January 1.  Make sure you look into whether there is a medical equipment loan closet near you.  It is often run by the Lions Club or Rotary Club (& they might be able to tell you who does it in your area if they do not).  There is a good chance you can borrow the rolling walker & shower chair from a medical equipment loan closet for no cost.  Most allow you to keep the equipment  for as long as you need it.  Many people donate equipment yo the loan closet that they no longer need due to having it for a short term need or progressing yo different equipment (or an elderly relative passing away).

Actually, he seems to meet the requirements of Listing 11.14 A and have the evidence required under 11.00 B and satisfy 11.00 D.  (The OP should read 11.00 and 11.14 if he hasn't already.)  https://www.ssa.gov/disability/professionals/bluebook/11.00-Neurological-Adult.htm

When a claimant meets a Listing the 5 Step Sequential Evaluation Process stops at Step 3.  Age is not a factor until step 5. 

This doesn't mean every applicant with a script for a walker will meet a Listing...

And, if you are a vet, the VA usually has a room full of medical appliances you can use until you no longer need it. Our local VA has one. We donated to it and used it.
