Also known as ambulatory devices, mobility aids refers to any device that assists a person with walking or improves mobility. These devices help prevent falls, take the weight off of a leg injury, or provide a mechanized system of mobility for those who cannot walk.
Mobility aids include:

A physical therapist works with an individual to make sure each mobility aid is properly fitted to the right height and position. Physical therapy exercises may also be used to increase muscle strength in the arms and legs.
