Life itself can be a balancing act between everyday chores to keeping up with the grandkids. With age, falls become more of an issue and risk. Although no one wants to admit it, sometimes the best thing to do for yourself is to invest in a walking aid to help with balancing your life.
September 15-21st is balance awareness week, so the Medical Department Store found it to be the perfect time to talk about different walking aid options. By investing in a walking aid or mobility scooter, you will have peace of mind knowing you have something to lean on just in case.
Walkers, canes, and mobility scooters from the Medical Department Store:
Walkers: A walker is convenient for travel and running errands. You can choose walkers with baskets and wheels or keep it simple with a walker that is modest. Walkers are reliable, sturdy and heavy duty for all purposes. They are a step up from a cane because they are a guiding aid. Depending on your preferences, you can take a look around our online store to see what will work for you.
Canes: From quad canes to printed fashionable canes, we have a wide variety of options for you to choose from. A cane is a great option if you are looking for a little support when getting out of chairs, moving around, or on the go. A cane is cost efficient and great to have with you for preventing falls. Canes can be easily stored and kept out of the way when not in use.
Mobility scooters: The Medical Department Store has over 60 choices when it comes to mobility scooters so you can be picky. We want you to choose the best option for your needs and desires, so we offer scooters that range from colorful to offering fast models. A mobility scooter will get you to where you need to be, but don’t forget an EZ-ACCESS ramp for your home.
We have even more options when it comes to mobility and walking aids in our online catalog.
