MOBILITY AIDS AND DEVICES
MEDICAL AND REHAB EQUIPMENT
A mobility aid is a device designed to assist with walking or otherwise improve the mobility of people that are mobility impaired.
Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are used to substitute walking. Wheelchairs may be either manually propelled or electrically powered. Wheelchairs and Scooters are normally recommended for any individuals who are significantly mobility/balance impaired.
What are the benefits of having mobility aids and rehab equipment?
- Improve Stability
By providing additional points of contact the walking aid provides both additional support and a wider range of stable centre of gravity positioning.
- Reduce Lower-Limb Loading
By directing load through the arms and the walking aid, lower impact and static forces are transmitted through the affected limbs.
- Generate Movement
The walking aid and arms can substitute for the muscles and joints of the spine, pelvis and/or legs in the generation of dynamic forces during walking.
