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.
