Walking Aid Assessment

Walking Aid is equipment that assists an individual to walk. There are a variety of mobility aids available in the market, but consult a physiotherapist before buying new equipment. At K7 physiotherapy as part of our assessment, we recommend an appropriate mobility aid that suits the individual’s needs.

The widely used mobility aids in elderly rehabilitation in the United Kingdom are walking sticks, elbow crutches and walking frames.

Walking Stick

At K7 physiotherapy we find height-adjustable walking sticks especially helpful. It is also advisable to acquire a walking stick with a rubber ferrule at the bottom. This helps mitigate the risk of slips and trips and wet surfaces.

Walking Frames

Walking frames are lightweight frames that help individuals with their mobility. Walking frames can be used both indoors and outdoors.

It is a walker with three wheels and rubber tyres. Therefore, it is smooth to manoeuvre. It can also be used outdoors. An added advantage to these types of walkers is that they have brakes.
