Mobility Safety Solutions

Common Situations

Did you know that a natural part of aging is a loss of muscle mass, resulting in loss of strength, stability and independence? That is why it is so important to stay active.

Several studies suggest that walking, even as little as 45 minutes a week, helps ward off serious illnesses for the elderly (including Alzheimer’s disease). Regular strolls and activity keep the mind sharp and help maintain the positive mental attitude that come from independence and stimulation. Consider our mobility solutions to facilitate an active lifestyle for those who need assistance remaining active, safe and independent.

Mobility Safety Solutions

Mobility safety solutions provide stability and safety to help achieve independence. These solutions aid in daily activities among healthy people as well as people recovering from a medical procedure or living with a chronic condition.

  • If using a walker or rollator, try a cup holder, carry pouch or basket to keep your things with you as you move from place to place.
  • Even canes can be equipped with carry pouches and come with different tips for different levels of stability.
  • Try folding, lightweight transport wheelchairs to make it easier for caregivers to assist loved ones who cannot propel themselves. Include accessories such as a carrying pouch or cup holder to keep hands free, making movement easy. Add a cushion for comfort and to protect the skin.
  • If fatigue is a concern, cover more ground by selecting a power scooter. To decide which power scooter is the right product for you or your loved one, consider lifestyle; will the scooter be used exclusively in and around the house or will the scooter be used outside the house and transported from place to place?
