Mobility Devices


Assistive devices are anything that helps you cope with illness, disability, or injury. It can include the simplest devices, like rubber grips for pens, to the most exotic items, like elevators for the home. Mobility devices include anything that help us move around, such as canes, walkers, scooters and wheelchairs.
