Mobility Aids for Travel
Seniors are encouraged to stay home as much as possible in times like these. That being said, doctor’s appointments or grocery runs remain essential. The following products allow them to get to and from places with greater ease and comfort, promoting independent mobility and active ageing.
Do note that the products are listed in ascending order, according to the degree of independence required on the part of users.
