Walking sticks are an excellent resource if you’re feeling a little unsteady on your feet.
Your walking stick can help keep you upright, and will be lightweight, discreet, and easy-to-store. They come in a range of different finishes, and can be modified to suit your height, either via an in-built height-adjuster, or by being cut to size.
There are also a variety of different handle shapes to choose from, including padded options. Crook Handles can be hooked onto your arm or fixture when not in use, and Fischer Handles distribute pressure evenly across your hand.
Crutches are very lightweight, and provide an extra arm support. Their handles are also typically shaped for extra grip or ergonomically designed to spread pressure across the hand (providing a greater level of comfort).
Like walkers, walking frames offer greater stability than sticks, and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
‘This is just to say a big thank you for getting the chair to my father so quickly. It has made such a difference to him… He has a big smile on his face when he is in it. I never thought we would get such an improvement at this stage of his Alzheimer’s, but it means the world to see a bit more of Dad still there.’Mrs Tinkley
