Struggling with Walking? Take a look at our Walking Aids!

Monday, February 15th, 2016 by morethan

If you or a loved one are having difficulty getting about and it’s stopping you from doing things you want to do, then do consider getting some equipment to help.

We at More Than Mobility have a range of lightweight walking aids available. Weather you have an illness or muscle problems we have the walking aid to suit you. Repeated use of a walking aid can lead to changes in your abilities. The significance of these changes will depend on whether you are likely to use the walking aid for the long term or are recovering from an injury / condition and wish to discontinue or change your walking aid in future.

Walking aids can vary from a walking stick, crutches, cane seats, walking frames (tri-walkers or 4 wheel rollator with seat), travel walkers or zimmer frames.  We offer lightweight aluminium mobility walking aids in a wide range of models and sizes, so you are sure to find the right walking aid for your needs and your budget.

If you do decide to get a walking aid then aim for something that makes you feel safe and that helps you get around as naturally as you can.  You might also choose different equipment for different purposes i.e. you might find a walking stick is fine for indoors but you need a tri-walker or rollator to go to the shops.

Walking aids may help with one or more functions including:

  • Provision of greater stability and balance
  • Facilitate your walking pattern in terms of speed and evenness of stride
  • Help maintain an upright body posture
  • Increase your confidence in your walking ability
  • Weight redistribution – some of the weight carried through the legs when walking is transferred through the arms of the frame or stick as it is leant on for support.  This may help reduce pain in the joints, muscles and ligaments in the lower limbs.
