There are many aides to help, and the staff at Metro Medical Homecare in Burnsville, MN, want to share some with you. As a premier provider of medical supplies and mobility equipment, they offer their advice below. 

Mobility Equipment to Use Around the Home

1. Chairlifts

Stairs can be limiting if you have mobility issues. Even if you are able to move with assistance, they’re a major hazard, which is why you should consider installing a chairlift. Not only are these safe, but they also allow you to move up and down stairs without putting any strain on your body. They’re a long-term solution and can be installed to almost any staircase.

2. Walkers

So long as you can support yourself, they offer many advantages and are easy to maneuver around furniture and other obstructions. They come in many styles and include features for sitting and standing.

3. Electric Scooters

If you have a larger home or enjoy spending time in your yard, it’s helpful to have a seamless powered solution to help with mobility. Traveling long distances or moving regularly can be a burden with walkers, canes, or wheelchairs, so considered an electric scooter. So long as you have the space, this mobility equipment provides plenty of power to move easily and regularly without causing undue strain.
