The ability to get from here . . . to there . . . is practically the definition of independence.  And Allegro offers hundreds of ways to get there, regardless of your ability.  Just take a look at our large selection of canes, walkers, rollators, wheelchairs and mobility scooters!

Choosing the right mobility equipment is important for your health and safety.  Read the product descriptions carefully so that you understand the capacities, dimensions and benefits of each product. Your physical capabilities must also be considered when choosing the right mobility equipment.  Your doctor, caregiver or  health care professional can help recommend the best type of equipment for your current and future mobility needs.  When it comes to getting around, Allegro is sure to have exactly what you need.

TYPES of MOBILITY AIDS

Canes

Canes can be used for balance (single tip) or to bear your full weight (quad).  The top of the cane should be at the same level as the crease on the back side of your wrist with your arms at your side.  Measure the distance from your wrist to the floor, with shoes on.  Review this MayClinic.com Slideshow: How to choose and use a cane for more information.

 Crutches 

Crutches are fitted according to your height.  When you stand, your elbows should bend slightly at about 20 degrees, with your hand grips even with your hip joint.  You should be able to fully extend your elbow with each step forward.

Walkers

For balance, or if you are at risk for falling, a walker may be the perfect choice.  Rule of thumb: A standard walker without wheels is most stable.  Walkers with wheels may get you around faster, though, because you can put your weight on the walker as you move.  Rollators, or 4-wheeled walkers really keep you moving.   Review this MayoClinic.Com Slide Show: How to choose and use a walker for more info.

Wheelchairs

Choosing a wheelchair, except the most basic models or transport chairs, requires help from a nurse, doctor or therapist.  Once you’ve determined your requirements as to special features, type of wheelchair, back height, width, weight and support you need, it’s a matter of choosing the style that suits you.
