Provide support that affords the mobility-impaired increased freedom of movement with a wide choice of mobility aids , including canes, walking sticks and walkers. Foldable canes are easy to store and handy for traveling, while sturdy aluminum canes that grip the floor securely give the elderly a sense of confidence when moving about. For those who need a little extra support, consider choosing from a wide array of walkers that suit various needs, whether you prefer foldable models that are easy to store or place in the back of a car, or models with seats to allow unsteady users to sit and rest from time to time. You can complete your supply by stocking up on replaceable cane and walker tips, storage units to keep canes accessible, and wheels and glides for a bit of extra speed and ability to manage the device.
Consider helping the elderly and infirm in your care stay steady on their feet with this wide selection of canes. Handsome wooden canes with elegantly shaped handles combine support and style, while a sturdy aluminum cane with an offset handle provides a secure hold. Consider choosing a cane that allows push button height adjustment to customize the fit to each patient, or look for one with a wrist strap that allows the user to remove their hand without dropping the cane. Foldable aluminum canes are easy to take on the go, while quad canes with four feet support more weight and provide superb stability for those moving at a slower pace. For more able-bodied folks feeling particularly adventurous, tall walking sticks can add safety and style to mountain hikes.
Consider keeping unsteady patients mobile with walkers that move easily while remaining lightweight enough even for those with diminished physical strength. Adjustable walkers accommodate users of various height, and rubber tips on the feet can add stability during forward motion. Consider looking for a walker with front wheels to allow motion over most surfaces, and you can choose a foldable design when ease of storage or transport is a key consideration. Ultra-light rolling models allow freedom when traveling, with built-in seats to provide a level of comfort when it's time to stop and take a rest.
You can keep walkers and canes well-maintained and safe with a fresh supply of non-skid rubber tips that provide traction on smooth surfaces and absorb shock during motion. Tennis ball-style glides can facilitate maneuverability while protecting floors from scuffs and scratches, with precut slots that let them slide easily on walker feet. Consider swapping walker feet for casters to provide greater mobility and encourage a natural stride, or add swivel wheels to making it easy to turn corners. A basket on the front of any walker makes it easy to carry everyday necessities hands-free, with a cup holder to let you enjoy a beverage safely. Platform attachments are helpful to the mobility-impaired patient who can't lean to hold a walker comfortably. If you take a cane to work, snap a cane holder to your desk to keep your trusty support within arm's reach and to prevent it falling to the floor, or choose a handsome walking stick stand to hold multiple canes.
