Walking Aids

Folding or rigid, wheeled or unwheeled, fixed height or adjustable, walkers promote not just independence but also exercise. Canes, crutches, and other aids also help seniors stay active while minimizing the risk of injury.

Even canes come in a wide variety of models:

  • Folding and rigid
  • Tripod models for added stability
  • Models that fold into portable seats
  • Tips for different surfaces
  • Special handles for different gripping abilities and preferences
