People Also Ask
With so many different types of walking aids available, you want to make sure that you make a well-informed purchase. Here are some questions people have asked before buying a walking aid.
Does the NHS supply walking aids?
While you can get a free walking aid from the NHS, there may be a long waiting period for assessments and referrals. This delay can significantly impact individuals in need of timely mobility solutions, potentially causing discomfort or hindering daily activities. This is why it's best to shop for one online, for quick delivery and a wide range of options that are best suited to your needs.
How do I know which walking stick to choose?
If you are going to buy a mobility aid you are going to want a walking stick that improves your daily life and that will be long lasting.
For example, you may want to know if there are weight-bearing walking sticks or how to change the rubber ferrule (we have a guide on how to change a rubber ferrule here). Or you may want to compare a wheelchair or scooters mobility with another in the same product range.
So, we have put together a handy guide on how to choose the right walking stick that you can read here.
Take a look and then if you still have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone to talk to us.

Consider consulting with our experts to find the perfect fit.
