Benefits of Lift Chairs

The ability to stay mobile and independent is crucial for every persons physical and emotional wellbeing. TruMotion Medical offers a broad array of mobility aids and devices that can help those who are injured or ill get around on their own, making them feel safer and more secure as they move. At TruMotion Medical, we offer a variety of at home mobility equipment products. We provide manual wheelchairs, rollators, walkers, knee walkers, canes, quad canes, ramps, and mobility equipment accessories in Little Rock and Central Arkansas.

wheelchair manualWheelchairs are used by people who should not put weight on their lower limbs or who are unable to walk. They can be more suitable than walkers for people with severe disabilities or when travel over greater distances is required.

Examples of specialized types of wheelchairs include standing wheelchairs, where users are supported in an almost upright position, and sports wheelchairs, which have been developed for use during specific sports.

Walker RollaterThis common style of walker consists of a frame with four wheels, handlebars, and seat so the user can rest as needed. Rollators also include hand breaks as a safety feature.

walkerWalkers are made up of a metal framework with four legs that provide stability and support to the user. These very stable walking aids are used by 4.6 percent of adults in the U.S. over 65.

Basic walkers have a 3-sided frame that surrounds the user. Users lift the frame and place it further in front of them, they then step forward to meet it, before repeating the process.

knee walkerSimilar to a rollator, this device allows the user to rest their knee on a padded cushion while propelling themselves forward with their stronger leg.

CanesCanes are similar to crutches in that they support the body’s weight and help transmit the load from the legs to the upper body. They take less weight off the lower body than crutches and place greater pressure on the hands and wrists. Assistive canes are useful for people who have problems balancing and who are at risk of falling.

Quad caneSimilar to regular walking canes, quad canes offer better stability to the user.  They come equipped with  a four-pronged base that permits the user to walk on unstable ground with no worry of losing their balance.

CrutchesCrutches help to transfer weight from the legs to the upper body. They can be used singly or in pairs. Crutches help keep a person upright and may be used by those with short-term injuries or permanent disabilities. There are many different types of crutches, including:

Axillary (underarm) crutches. One part of an axillary crutch is placed against the ribcage under the armpits, while users hold onto the hand grip. These crutches are typically used by those with short-term injuries.

Lofstrand (forearm) crutches. This type of crutch involves placing the arm into a metal or plastic cuff and holding a hand grip. Forearm crutches are more commonly used by people with long-term disabilities.

Platform crutches. With platform crutches, the hand holds a grip while the forearm rests on a horizontal platform. Platform crutches are not commonly used, except by people with a weak hand grip due to conditions such as arthritis or cerebral palsy.
