Our team of physiotherapists are able to assess your walking/gait pattern to determine if it is safe or if you require a specialised walking aid. If we determine that you need a walking aid, we are able to assist you in purchasing and choosing the correct item that matches your needs. This can include walking stick, quad stick, Canadian crutches, walking frame for indoors, 4 wheel walkers for indoors/outdoors, forearm support frames.
We are also able to trial equipment with you, in your own home and then discuss which options seems to provide the most stability and safety, whilst also allowing freedom of movement.
At times certain walking aids require some training to teach you how to navigate your environment safely. Our physio are able to provide this to ensure your ongoing safety.
