More and more elderly Americans are choosing to age in place. With aging comes unexpected challenges. One of those challenges is maintaining an independent lifestyle. To stay independent, one-third of elderly seniors 65 and over-rely on mobility aids.
As we age, things we use to do like walking around the house, going to the grocery store, or taking a walk through the park may no longer be possible without the assistance of a walking aid. Over the last ten years, 50 percent of aging Americans used one or more medical devices to get around. These elderly seniors are concerned about balance issues, accidental falls, and other physical limitations. For example, individuals recovering from a stroke or individuals living with osteoarthritis may need the help of mobility aids for sitting, standing, or walking.
The most widely used mobility aids for seniors are walkers and rollators. Walkers and rollators come in a variety of styles:
- standard walkers with no wheels
- two-wheeled walkers
- rollator walkers with three wheels
- rollator walkers with four wheels
Although traditional walkers meet the required safety standards and sell for a lower price, they are often bulky, heavy, and difficult to navigate. When searching for a walker or rollator mobility device, overlooking safety for a low price should never be an option! Using a walker or rollator walking aid reduces a user’s likelihood of experiencing an accidental fall significantly. A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that one in every four elderly seniors 65 years and over will experience an accidental fall. Their chances of falling again double after the first fall.
A report from the CDC indicates that hospital stays from accidental falls cost at least $50 billion in 2015. Add the cost of having a caregiver or physical therapy after the hospital stay, and the price increases. Therefore, paying a higher price for a top-quality, one-of-a-kind crafted, and sleek, stylish-looking walking aid pales in comparison.
