Canes & Helpers...
Until such time that we find our "magic pill" to cure us, we need to try and get on the best we can... Getting out and about holds a fear factor for all of us... What if we fall?? Have weakness in one or both legs?? Walking aids, in every variety... from walking sticks to frames... are there to enhance our lifestyles and to provide stability and support...
Personaly speaking... I myself have the aid of a stick... Most days I can't get out as my legs will not take my weight.. I'm feeling dizzy and existing in a world of unreality... Where as it's dangerous for me to be out on my own as I have no concept of traffic, surroundings, etc... on some occasions, I have managed to reach my destination... only to find that it was impossible to get back home...
I also have a Bedside Support Rail, which enables me to pull myself out of bed... It also provides support when trying to stand up in the morning... I also have a perching stool for the kitchen... This proves to be supportive in the event that when I'm making a cup of tea, it allows myself, once seated to be at working space height as it has an adjustable legs... These have become a godsend...
