::Wheelchairs – Manual & Powered

Wheelchairs come in a variety of manual and powered styles, depending on your requirements. Powered wheelchairs offer more support and positioning options (sort of like the seat of your car) than manual wheelchairs but are generally heavier and less portable than the other options.

There are many types of manual wheelchairs to choose from including steel frame and aluminium frame. Our manual wheelchair range consists of either “Self Propelled” or “Transit” versions.

:Walking Sticks and Crutches

A walking stick can help support your weaker side, so the best strategy is to use it on your stronger side. Although the style is pretty much up to you, it is recommended to have the walking stick at the correct height for you in order to give you adequate support.

People generally want a cane that looks as little like a cane as possible. At Go Mobility we have a wide variety of walking sticks varying in design and colour. Just remember that a cane help unless it does what you need it to do.

Forearm crutches are good if you need that little bit more support than a cane can offer. They have a cuff that goes around your lower arm and a handle that helps support your weight. Forearm crutches don’t require as much upper arm strength as regular crutches or canes, so they help conserve your valuable energy.

A rollator, that moves in front of you can provide more stability and requires less energy than crutches or walking sticks. Depending on your requirements, you have the option of many brightly coloured styles, complete with four wheels, handbrakes, and a convenient seat for resting when you get tired.

::Mobility Scooters

Mobility Scooters are designed to help gain independence and help you to conserve your energy over long distances – including trips to the zoo or museum, sightseeing and going shopping.

After you get to where you want to go you can park your scooter and walk with or without a cane for support. A mobility scooter is like a golf cart for everyday use!

Mobility Scooters come in three-wheeled and four-wheeled styles, with a wide variety of options in terms of size, weight, battery life and colour. There is a type of mobility scooter for everyone but it is important to think carefully about how you’re going to use the scooter.

For example, a lightweight scooter that can be split apart to go in and out of the boot of the car will have less battery power than a large mobility scooter with bigger batteries. And a three-wheeled scooter may look more attractive to you, but they offer less stability on turns and bumps than those with four wheels.
