About Wheelchairs and Walkers

People who are older, have a disability or are injured, may require assistance to get around.

This can mean using a walker to take a load off your legs to make it easier to get around, having a wheelchair to push around a patient, or even a powered wheelchair so the user can get around without a carer.

These devices increase the confidence of the person using it and helps boost their self-esteem, despite their conditions, due to the independence and freedom it provides. 

Wheelchairs also come with accessories such as wheelchair cushions, wheelchair pressure cushions, other products that can improve quality of life.

Who Are Wheelchairs & Walkers For?

Walking frames are most commonly used by the elderly in order to give them the freedom to move about their homes or living spaces more easily and safely than they could before. This is due to the increased stability and traction provided by the device. As a carer, this gives you the confidence that your patient will be able to get around safely, even when you’re not there.

But walking frames are not reserved for the elderly. They are for anyone who has difficulties moving.

Wheelchairs Vs Walkers

wheelchair_urban

Wheelchairs are used as an alternative method to move, without using the legs. By using your arms to rotate the wheels, you are able to move forward with zero leg usage. There are also motorised options that don’t require any physical exertion as well.

Walker

Walkers are used to assist with regular walking. By taking the weight off the legs, you reduce the pressure on the lower limbs. Some options include wheels on the bottom, making it easier on the arms as well. However, some require the user to lift the walker forward as they move.

Types of Walkers & Wheelchairs

Mobility Walkers

These are a type of wheelie walker that allows you to roll the walker across the floor as you let it support some of your weight.

Scooters

​A mobility scooter comes in both motorised and manual variants.

Seat Walkers

These are similar to regular mobility walkers, except you can take a seat on them to rest.

Lightweight Wheelchairs

Lightweight wheelchairs are perfect for temporary usage. This could be for moving patients between rooms.

Folding Wheelchairs

Want a portable wheelchair for times you’re on the go? Foldable wheelchairs are easy to fit into cars, buses, and vans.
