According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, around 20 percent of the adult population in the United States lives with a disability. That amounts to about 46 million Americans who find themselves needing one form or another of home health mobility products. While some individuals may require braces or walking aids, some will also need to purchase electric mobility scooters or opt for electric scooter rentals.
The devices available are able to alleviate many health conditions and limitations that require them. Many individuals, who begin to use electric mobility scooters, find themselves being able to go shopping, enjoy lunch with friends or visit a museum in absolute comfort. For example, people suffering from conditions that limit their ability to breathe well, like emphysema or congestive heart failure, will find that their world opens up to a new degree of independence.
The prospect of achieving mobility for a person living with conditions like Cerebral Palsy, arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis (MS), can be both daunting and exciting. Mediplus Mobility wants to facilitate the mobility and daily living aids that its clients need to live life to the fullest and enjoy the greatest possible level of independence. Patients who suffer from debilitating health conditions can see a significant improvement in their quality of life with the use of walking aids, patient hoyer lifts, wheelchairs, walking aids and bathroom safety products.
Electric mobility scooters or wheelchairs are products that despite having similar uses, have different functionalities. If a user desires to constantly use a mobility device, either an electric wheelchair or manual wheelchair will be the right choice for them. The wheelchair is designed for individuals who need to be sitting most of the day. The electric scooter, on the other hand, is designed for people who have some degree of mobility—even if limited. If a person in experiencing a type of condition that has symptomatic flare-ups, they might very well benefit from a scooter rental. When a person’s condition doesn’t warrant more than an occasional rental and the purchase of the device may not be affordable, Mediplus Mobility’s rental program can be a handy solution. Users looking to go on a trip that may entail sightseeing and a great deal of movement, could be very well served by being relieved of the strain of trying to keep up to a group when their condition impairs them from doing so.
Generally, mobility aids can help you or a loved one move if you’re experiencing disability, injury or fall-risk due to age. These aids can include crutches, walkers, rolling walkers, rollators, canes and crutches. We also offer other home healthcare aids like electric beds.
