INTRODUCTION

Old age can result in decreasing mobility and moving around can become somewhat difficult. In addition to old age, there are so many other factors that can lead to a reduction in mobility, such as injuries or health problems. There are many products that help people with limited mobility, move around freely and independently.

Mobility aids are assistive devices suitable for senior adults, injured people or people with decreased mobility due to other health issues, that help them carry on their daily routine without being dependent on caretakers. One of them is a wheelchair. Seniority has curated a wide range of wheelchairs that are specially designed to suit your requirements.

WHEN TO USE MOBILITY AIDS?

A mobility aid is suitable for people with temporary or permanent conditions that affect their mobility, balance and weight bearing. Some mobility aids can be used by people with sufficient upper body strength and coordination such as walkers and crutches, while other mobility aids like wheelchairs are more suited for people who need assistance in manoeuvring them or those who can self-propel.

A few examples of situations where mobility aids are useful are:

    • Loss of use of limb due to injury or permanent condition

    • Weakened lower body

    • Knee/Ankle/Foot/Back Surgery

    • Fractures in the lower limbs

    • ACL tear or injury

    • Impaired balance

    • Arthritis

    • Walking impairment due to brain injury or stroke

BENEFITS OF USING MOBILITY AIDS

• Can prevent falls and related injuries

• Increase in confidence and independence level

• Enhance user safety

• Can aid in quicker recovery in case of injuries or post-surgery

• Stability in movement and balance

• Suitable for short-term injuries and those that take time to recover

WALKERS

A walker is a mobility aid with a metal framework and four legs that offers stability and support to the user. It is suitable for people who have sufficient arm strength and can lift it while walking. Medical walkers for the elderly are specially designed to make them feel more independent as they eliminate reliance on caregivers.

Walkers can be used by:

    • The elderly

    • People who have trouble balancing themselves

    • People who are recovering from surgeries or an injury

    • People who are experiencing weakness

    • People with health problems that limit mobility

BENEFITS OF WALKERS

• Using a walker makes walking safe, whether you are walking through the house, out for a stroll in the park or at a store. If you have a walker, you will have more stability and the risk of falling will be reduced drastically.

• Walkers reduce weight-bearing, allowing you to walk long distances as they take off most of your body's weight. This helps you stay active and mobile.

• If you are using a walker, you can rest whenever required without overextending yourself. Walkers give you the ability to stop and take a break.

• A lot of people use a walker as a precaution as it provides a little more support than a cane. It is a great mobility support for situations where you know you’ll need extra support.

• A walker ensures less stress on the body and will bear some of your weight. This allows you to have more stamina, keep your energy levels high and go about your daily routine without muscle fatigue.

TYPES OF WALKERS

Each walker has its own uses and features. The type of walker you will need mostly depends on the severity of the problem you are facing, and your doctor will assign you a walker keeping that in mind.

The different types of walkers are:

    1. STANDARD WALKER:

    This type of walker is simple, lightweight and has no wheels. A standard walker offers stability to people who have sufficient strength to lift it while walking. Its four legs can be adjusted according to the height of the user and its stationary base makes movement more convenient and secure. A standard walker comes with a three-sided frame that surrounds the user.

    • Example: Medipedic Walker Castor - Vissco

    2. FOLDABLE WALKER:

    This type of walker works on the same mechanism as a basic walker and can be folded for easy transportation. It can be folded usually using a two-button system and it collapses flat. This walker is commonly used in the initial stages after a leg, hip or foot surgery or a fracture as it keeps the weight off the area.

    • Example: Reciprocal Walker With Double H Frame (Sc4025) - Entros

    3. SEATED WALKER:

    This type of walker is designed for maximum comfort and provides sturdy support. It comes with a wide seat and back support in case the user wants to rest. A walker with a seat can be adjusted as per height of the user and the seat can be raised to step inside the walker frame.

    • Example: Rollator With Seat Basket - Avanti

    4. WALKER WITH FRONT WHEELS:

    This type of walker is suitable for people with low or no upper body strength and endurance. It offers enhanced balance and makes movement easier, helping the user move faster while still being grounded by the two rear legs. Due to front wheels, the user does not have to lift the walker while walking.

    • Example: Deluxe Reciprocal Folding Walker WK 51 - Karma

    5. FOUR-WHEEL WALKER:

    This type of walker provides enhanced mobility and stability and offers comfort. It helps the user maintain balance without too much effort and allows them to move quickly and smoothly.

    • Example: Rollator Migo 2G (190/50) - Drive DevilBiss

    6. FOLDING AND ADJUSTABLE WALKERS

    Foldable and adjustable walkers are suitable for people in initial stages after getting a hip, foot or leg surgery or a fracture. They can be folded flat to make transportation more convenient and ensure minimal space requirement. Foldable and adjustable walkers can be regular walkers with four legs or can have two front wheels or wheels on all legs. Examples:

    • Deluxe Reciprocal Folding Walker WK 51 – Karma

    • Dura Step Walker (PC-2939) – Vissco

    • Dura Max Walker with Wheel – Vissco
