What are the Best Mobility Aids for Arthritis?

What are the Best Mobility Aids for Arthritis?
February 20, 2024

Explore our comprehensive guide to discover aids that enhance mobility and comfort, making life with arthritis more manageable and enjoyable.

Arthritis impacts millions, demanding tailored solutions for enhanced mobility. When it comes to selecting the right aid for you, prioritise features such as ergonomic design for comfort and support, and adjustable components to cater to individual needs. You may also want to consider aids with joint-specific support, like braces or adaptive tools, tailored to alleviate pain and enhance overall mobility.


 Here's our guide to the best aids to tackle discomfort and boost your daily life:


1. Canes/Walking Sticks:

Practical and dependable, canes and walking sticks offer on-the-go support, distributing weight evenly to provide stability during daily strolls. Say goodbye to joint strain and hello to confident movement.


2. Rollators:

Need support while walking and a comfy spot to rest? Rollators are your go-to solution. These nifty devices not only provide stability but also feature a built-in seat, perfect for those who appreciate a stroll with intermittent breaks. The addition of hand brakes, storage options, and a foldable design makes them a versatile option for those who want more support than a cane but more mobility than a wheelchair.  


3. Orthopaedic Braces for Affected Joints:

For targeted joint support, look no further. Knee braces, wrist splints, and elbow support work in tandem to enhance joint function and alleviate pain giving you a greater range of movement.


4. Mobility Scooters:

Navigating larger spaces or covering extended distances can be made effortless with mobility scooters, offering independence and ease of movement for those managing arthritis. From portable to road-legal and versatile mid-range options, finding the right scooter tailored to your needs is straightforward, ensuring a comfortable and accommodating solution.


5. Adaptive Tools and Gadgets:

From conquering tight jar lids to navigating the kitchen with ease, adaptive tools and gadgets are unsung heroes. These clever contraptions significantly reduce strain on arthritic joints, making daily tasks not just manageable but enjoyable.


Arthritis mobility aids aren't one-size-fits-all; they cater to specific needs, addressing concerns related to hip arthritis, knee arthritis, and overall joint discomfort. Choosing the right aid isn't just a decision; it's a lifestyle upgrade.
