When you need a little extra support, for example to help with balance when raising from a chair, then why not try a walking cane? They're small, lightweight, easy to store and easy on your purse (or wallet) too!
If you find that you have pain in your hands, then we have a range of Fischer handle style canes which may help as they help to spread the pressure across the width of the palm.
You can also choose from a range of folding and non folding canes and extra stability sticks.
Not sure which one is right for you? Then why not have a read of our walking cane guide Walking stick guide.
One of our most popular products is the humble walking frame.
Our services will soon include the ability to hire a limited number of walking frames, which is ideal if you have someone at home who is recuperating from an illness operation but needs a little help in doing so.
The menu of hire options will be published on the website so keep an eye out for this!
Walking frames are one of the oldest, most versatile types of mobility aid.
