Today marks Over World Osteoporosis Day (20th October). Over at The International Osteoporosis Foundation they see the value in empowering people to take action to prevent, diagnose and treat bone, muscle and joint disorders. Their main goals are:
- Campaigning for policy change to make bone, muscle and joint disorders a healthcare priority.
- Assisting healthcare professionals to provide the best possible care to people with bone, muscle and joint disorders.
- Supporting national osteoporosis societies to maximize their effectiveness in promoting bone, muscle and joint health.
Osteoporosis can lead to painful fractures, disability and early death. World Osteoporosis Day takes place every year on October 20, launching a year-long campaign. There are many campaigns happening to celebrate World Osteoporosis Day; so we encourage you to please get involved if you can. More information on activities can be found here.
Here at More Than Mobility we do not want any disability to stop you from living independently or to disrupt your lifestyle. We therefore provide a wide range of disability and mobility products to suit your specific needs from mobility scooters, rise and recline chairs to a range of daily living aids all suitable for people with Osteoporosis.
