The ease of mobility often becomes an issue as people age or become injured and they need the assistance of aids in order to remain mobile and maintain their independence.
Many community pharmacies have specialist areas devoted to mobility aids for the ageing population as well as for people who need aids as a result of accidents, or for other medical reasons.
The majority of mobility aids such as crutches, knee walkers and canes are designed to assist in the recovery from injury or surgery. For people with moderate support and/or balance issues, rollators and walkers may help to maintain mobility.
Speak to your local community Pharmacist about what mobility aids may be right for your needs or your condition.
