Canes

A cane is a popular option and it’s also the most basic and least bulky walking aid. This is an ideal investment for those with mild to moderate balance and stability issues. There are many benefits associated with canes, including portability, affordability, ease of use, and more. They’re extremely lightweight, too, which means you won’t have trouble transporting your cane with you from one place to the next. You’ll be able to choose a straight cane with the rounded crook handle, an offset-handle cane with a swan neck curve that offers additional stability, or a quad cane with a broad base for those who need maximum weight bearing and support.

Walkers

A walker is a device with four legs, all of which remain in contact with the ground as you move. However, you will need to lift the device in order to move forward. This device is great for users who struggle with balance, weakness while standing, or simply need support while walking. Typically, the legs on a walker do not come with wheels but there are accessories available that will enable your device to slide forward so you won’t need to lift it. The main purpose of this type of walking aid is to help the user maintain their balance as they walk.



Rollators

A rollator is designed for users who experience weakness when standing or those who require additional support while walking. This device is sometimes referred to as a wheeled walker or rolling walker. All four legs on a rollator have wheels that slide forward so you don’t have to lift it. Keep in mind you should not use a rollator to support your body weight as it can result in falls. Many models come with removable backs for superior balance when sitting.
