I have severe arthritis in my spine. The arthritis is causing my discs to deteriorate which in turn causes pain, numbness in my legs and the occasional fall. On a good day I use a cane to walk, on a bad day I use a walker, on my worst days I need help getting from my bed to the bathroom.
Let me tell you about my Aunt Bonnie. Bonnie had polio when she was in her late teens. The polio caused paralysis and she was a paraplegic for the rest of her life. Think about this, Bonnie was a young woman in a wheelchair with very few mobility options. She ended up working her entire life for the rights of the disabled and because of her hard work Philadelphia was one of the first cities in the United States to recognize the rights of the disabled.
The NMEDA (National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association) would like you to know that mobility is not the issue that it once was. In fact, there are many options to help you and/or your loved ones get around!
