This section is where you can find mobility aids to assist with impaired mobility, from walking sticks and crutches to wheelchairs, walkers and mobility scooters.
A walker (sometimes called a Zimmer frame or rollator) comes in many different styles now, with a range of accessories including shopping bags, seats, even a caddy, so that you can carry items safely around the house.
 
Our wheelchair section has a useful guide to selection, with an overview of the different types of wheelchair, rigid frame or folding, self propelling or carer assisted. There are power chairs and power packs which convert a manual chair into a powered one when required. We also have a section dedicated to the more unusual, special function wheelchairs.
