Joint pain & the products that help

About Joint Pain Cause & Its Symptoms

People with joint pain (e.g. pain in hip and/or knee) will often have trouble walking longer distances, suffer falls, find movement difficult and have balance issues.

Mobility & Accessibility Devices

There are a number of common devices that can help someone remain independent while performing their daily activities. Your healthcare team can help you determine the devices that are best for you.

Canes, available in many sizes and styles, provide support to those experiencing joint pain.

Walkers/Rollators - Walkers, also known as rollators, provide added support for people with joint pain. Most walkers have four wheels (although non-wheeled and two wheeled walkers are available), a seat and a basket. Indoor walkers are generally lighter and smaller, while outdoor walkers usually have larger wheels, hand brakes, a seat and a basket.

Mobility Scooters can be helpful to those who have lost the ability to walk longer distances. Mobility scooters are most often used outdoors because of their length and resultant large turning radius. Also available are smaller scooters better suited to indoor use and easier to transport.

Manual Wheelchairs are available in a wide range of styles and can be customized to optimize functionality. Basic chairs are suited for occasional use due to their weight, but are often adjustable to better match a user's physical requirements. Lightweight adjustable wheelchairs can be customized to an individual user and dramatically reduce the effort required to wheel the chair as they tend to be lighter in weight, thereby increasing manoeuverability and functionality and lessoning the risk of repetitive use injuries of the shoulders, arms and hands.

Transport Chairs are smaller, lighter versions of manual wheelchairs that are easier to fold and easier to load into a vehicle. Transport chairs cannot be propelled by the user because of their small rear wheel size.

Bathroom Aids are essential for people with mobility impairments. Bath seats, transfer benches and bath boards, in combination with hand held showers, allow people to sit down while bathing to increase comfort and safety. Raised toilet seats make a toilet higher, making it easier for a person to stand up. Grab bars and toilet safety frames will also help to make bathrooms safer.
