Summer is well and truly here! It is that time of the year when, no matter who you are or where you are in the UK, you want to get outside and enjoy the sun and weather. There comes a time when many of us will become unsteady on our feet. As we age, that can be wear and tear on our bodies leading to joint issues or back problems, but there may also be circumstances like an accident or trapped nerve which can leave you immobile. Walking day to day becomes a struggle and we need a little bit of help. In every instance it is important not to go out and buy just anything. Support from well made products is the most important factor in choosing a walking aid, including anything from wheelchairs to rollators, triwalkers to mobility scooters, lightweight wheelchairs through to powerchairs. It is really important not to buy off a second hand site or auction site where you can’t try it first or get the correct measurement just because it’s cheap. Instead go to a reputable company, such as Simplelife Mobility. that can give you the best help and advice with high quality products and ensure you are matched to the correct mobility product and walking aid to your individual needs.
Before buying any type of walking aid, if you are unsure about the right sort of wheelchair or walking support for you, it is a good idea to seek the advice of a trained professional like a physiotherapist or your GP. They will be able to advise on the most suitable type and size of walking aid for you. Believe it or not over 60% of those currently in use may be unsuitable. This could be that they are too high or low putting increased support on the back or other muscles and affecting balance or that it is the wrong type of aid for that individual. It may be that the user requires a walking stick just to help and support them or the aid needed may be greater and a walking frame may be advisable. Whatever the circumstance seek advice and buy from a company who specialise in this area.
