Your house is meant to be a place where you can feel relaxed and comfortable, but as you grow older, this can unfortunately stop being the case. When mobility becomes more of a challenge, that tiled floor can start to feel a little more slippery, and those wooden steps a little more treacherous. In addition to being difficult to traverse the risk of falling becomes a greater danger.
No matter what your age, there’s almost nothing that feels better than spending a day relaxing, reading a book, watching TV, or taking a nap, and there’s no better place to do this than in the comfort of your own bedroom. It’s a place of comfort, safety, and rest, somewhere you can feel truly at home.
Do you sometimes find maintaining your mobility and balance a struggle? Are those knees just not what they used to be? Do you feel confined indoors by your limited mobility? If this is the case you may want to consider getting a mobility aid, such as a cane, to maintain your freedom and make your everyday life easier.
Transport wheelchairs are smaller and lighter than standard wheelchairs, making them a perfect mobility aid for travel and daytrips. Due to their small wheels, transport chairs can’t be self-propelled and instead need to be pushed from behind. When choosing a transport chair, there are several things you should keep in mind.
So you're looking for a cane - one that's stylish and provides a little extra support while you walk. But if this is your first cane purchase, you may not be sure exactly what you need. We're here to help.
Bad news, everyone. In your late 30s you begin to shrink. Or maybe you’re super tall and you think that’s good news. If so, congrats!

Not everyone can use a traditional 3 or 4 Wheel Rollator. Some require a more specialized device to get around. That’s why we offer a selection of specialty rollators and accessories, including the Drive Posterior Safety Roller and numerous accessories for the Drive Trekker Gait Trainer.
Knee walkers, sometimes called knee scooters, provide a convenient alternative to crutches. If only one leg is injured and the injury is below the knee, the knee walker will help you get around quickly both indoors and outdoors so you don’t have to limit your activity. So what are the best knee walkers?
Bariatric rollators, sometimes called heavy duty rollators, are designed to accommodate larger users. They’re wider than a traditional rollator and many can support up to 500 pounds. Here are the most popular models.
Love it or hate it, winter is upon us. And while it comes with many fun treats—holidays, sales, hot chocolate—it also makes getting around trickier, especially if you use a mobility aid. Here our top tips for safely getting around during the winter.
I never know what to get my grandma. She likes ice cream and game shows, but that doesn’t leave me with a whole lot of options. It’s weird to wrap a carton of ice cream and by the time it’s sat under the tree for a week, it probably won’t be in top condition.
But if you’re like me, fear not! JustWalkers.com now has a Gift Ideas section just in time for the holidays.
