Mobility difficulty is a very common issue for people of all ages. Health In Aging defines mobility problems as unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of a chair, or frequent falls. They also mention other common contributors to mobility problems, including muscle weakness, joint problems, pain, disease, and neurological difficulties. Sometimes several mild problems combine and occur simultaneously, affecting one’s mobility.
Although these conditions often affect elderly persons, people of any age can suffer from limited mobility. For those that have a difficult time walking, it can have a significant impact on their mental and emotional health. Being able to stay active in your own home and community is essential to daily life and having that independence taken from you can lead to isolation or depression. For this reason, it is crucial to address mobility issues and seek help from a primary care physician, loved ones, or mobility devices. When it comes to getting around and maintaining your independence, SmartScoot is there to lend a helping hand.
