What Types of Mobility Aid do we Stock?

Here at Stratus Healthcare, we stock a variety of different types of mobility aid for the benefit of all of our customers.

Walkers

A walker also known as a zimmer frame is one of the most popular types of mobility aid. Its popularity perhaps stems from the fact that they have four legs to provide support and stability to the user. This is a real benefit, particularly to older users, who find it difficult to maintain stability whilst walking. Some walkers also have wheels on the front of them but not on the back so that users can slide them rather than needing to lift it, which can be difficult for those who lack the upper body strength to do so. Some walkers also come with a seat attached, which is ideal for any users that might tire quickly and need a place to rest as needed.

Mobility Scooters

This particular type of mobility aid is excellent for those without the flexibility or upper body strength to use a manual wheelchair. The mobility scooter works in a similar way to a wheelchair, with a seat set attop either three, four or five wheels. Typically this type of mobility scooter is battery powered, which makes travel medium distances easy for its users. They can have a really positive impact on their users’ standard of living and are particularly ideal for trips to the shop or to meet friends and family.
