A mobility scooter is an aid that has been specifically designed to help people with restricted mobility regain access to their independence. Mobility scooters are typically used by individuals with an injury, physical disability or medical condition. They have become increasingly popular with people who are morbidly obese.
Electric wheelchairs provide a lot of movement for people with limited movement, or injuries. They are extremely convenient but, like anything, they can become slightly uncomfortable when sat in for long periods of time. Adjusting seating position (if possible) will definitely help with fixing developing tingles and pain, but there are other ways to ensure a comfy ride, every time.
Ankles don’t always get the recognition they deserve – they are used for almost every motion while upright, from walking to running to dancing. It’s important to look after these because an injured ankle can create unbearable pain and lack of proper movement.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be very uncomfortable, and often very painful. It is caused by pressure on your median nerve which is a very large nerve found in between the bones in your arm. Pressure on this can cause pain, tingling and numbness in your fingers and wrist.
The knee is the largest joint in the body, and it’s constantly in use. Knee injuries are very common, and many elderly people have to pay for knee replacements over time. Common knee injuries include sprains, strains, dislocations, fractures and damage from overuse.
