Walking aids are beneficial to patients with hip and knee arthritis, as well as those with acute injuries such as ankle sprains and leg fractures. Choosing the right walking aid will help you along the road. The requirement for a walking aid depends on several factors, wherein a doctor or a physical therapist can determine and recommend a walking aid that suits your needs.
 

Clinically significant comorbidities, as well as the individual's daily mobility needs, such as home thresholds, community ambulation, managing steps, or public transportation, should all be considered. 

Walking aids are assistive devices that allow seniors and individuals who have been injured and have limited mobility to complete their daily routines without the assistance of caregivers. Consider whether the walking aid, such as a walking frame for an elderly person who has lost mobility due to a stroke, is intended to be used temporarily or permanently.

In circumstances when decreased weight bearing through the lower limb is desirable, walking aids can also be used to shift weight from the upper limb to the ground. If you've experienced an injury, walking assistance that matches your weight-bearing status may be required.

When to use Walking aids?

People with temporary or permanent limitations to their movement, balance, or weight-bearing may benefit from using a walking aid. People with sufficient upper body balance and endurance can utilize various walking aids, such as canes and crutches, whereas those who require assistance maneuvering or who can propel themself are better suited to alternative mobility aids, such as wheelchairs.

A few examples of situations where Walking aids are useful are:

  • Loss of use of limb due to injury or permanent condition
  • Weakened lower body
  • Knee/Ankle/Foot/Back Surgery
  • Fractures in the lower limbs
  • ACL tear or injury
  • Impaired balance
  • Arthritis
  • Walking impairment due to brain injury or stroke

Before you decide on the right walking aid for your situation, it is advisable to get help from medical professionals who can assess your medical requirements and make an informed recommendation based on your medical history, health requirements, weight, height, and mobility goals.

Benefits of using walking aids

  • Can prevent falls and related injuries
  • Increase in confidence and independence level
  • Enhance user safety
  • Can aid in quicker recovery in case of injuries or post-surgery
  • Stability in movement and balance
  • Suitable for short-term injuries as well as permanent disabilities

Walking aids such as wheelchairs, walkers & rollators, walking sticks(canes), and crutches can help people with limited mobility, move around freely and independently.
