Mobility Aids

Devices designed to assist walking or otherwise improved mobility.

 

Canes
The cane or walking stick is the simplest form of walking aid. It is held in the hand and transmits loads to the floor through a shaft. The load which can be applied through a cane is transmitted through the user’s hands and wrists and limited by these. We offer a variety of different colors, designs, and styles of canes.

Walkers & Rollators
The most stable walking aid and consist of a freestanding metal framework with three or more points of contact which the user places in front of them and then grips during movement. The points of contact may be either fixed rubber ferrules as with crutches and canes, or wheels, or a combination of both. Wheeled walkers are also known as rollators. There are also many different accessories that can be added to a walker or a rollator just ask a representative about them.

Rollators & Accessories

U-STEP
The U-STEP is a special designed rollator that has more stability then a standard rollator. The U shaped design not only gives the item its name but it is also the key to the added stability. The U-STEP also uses a different braking system than a standard rollator that makes this unit stand out and into a new level all its own. The U-STEP was designed for people with neurological disorders.

Wheelchairs
Wheelchairs: Substitute for walking by providing a wheeled device on which the user sits. Wheelchairs may be either manually propelled (by the user or by an aide) or electrically powered. Mobility scooters are electrically powered

Standard Wheelchair(K0001): The standard wheelchair is characterized by a cross-brace frame (allows folding ), built-in or removable arm rests, swing-away footrests, a mid- to high-level back, two large wheels (usually 20-26″) with push rims, two small wheels in the front (castors) and push handles to allow non-occupants to propel the chair. Most standard wheelchairs require a significant amount of energy to propel, thus making them impractical for active users.

Lightweight Wheelchair(K0003): Lightweight frame weighing less than 36 pounds.  A K003 wheelchair has the same set up as a standard. The frame also allows for many different options with seating and leg rest just like the standard  wheelchair.

Bariatric Wheelchair/ Heavy Duty Wheelchair(K0007): The Bariatric Wheelchair has the same design as a standard wheelchair but is designed for a person weighing over 300lbs. The Bariatric wheelchair also comes in wider dimensions, up to 26 inches wide, and has more options in the depth of the chair as well.

Transfer Chair(K0004): A transfer chair is designed for a user to be pushed from behind by another person. The transfer chair has the same construction as the standard wheelchair but the     biggest difference is that a transfer chair uses four caster style wheels instead of two caster wheels and to large wheels like a standard wheelchair does.
