These attach to your walker or rollator and light up your path. We recommend the See 4 Safety Mobility Light as it automatically turns on and off when needed, so you don’t have to worry about buttons. 2. Beware of Ice. Ice and snow can cause walking aids to slide forward farther and faster than they should, potentially resulting in falls.

Avoid walking on snow or ice whenever. Use car for support. Keep your hands out of your pockets. Walk on designated walkways as much as possible.

Don’t take shortcuts over snow piles or areas where snow and ice removal is not feasible. Look ahead when you walk. A sidewalk completely covered with ice may require travel along its grassy edge for traction. Don’t text or read while walking. Walk safely on snow or ice.

These provide much better traction over snow and ice than regular soles. They are easy to slip on and off shoes and can be toted around when not in use. Shorten your stride and shuffle your feet when walking on icy surfaces. Bend your knees gently and keep your feet parted slightly.

Wear sunglasses so that you can see in the reflective light of the snow. Also, wear a bright coat or scarf so that drivers can easily see you. TIP #3: Plan ahead. While walking on snow or ice on sidewalks or in parking lots, walk consciously. Instead of looking down, look up and see where your feet will move next to anticipate ice or an uneven surface.

Get on and off the ice faster with ice walkers.We offer durable sets that come in sizes for little kids all the way up through adults. If you want to enjoy more time on the ice actually fishing, be sure to think of your feet when you are gathering your ice fishing equipment. (Lightweight walkers are under 15 lbs). A 3-wheeled walker is not recommended as it can tip. Advantage: these walkers are lighter and easier to fit into the back of a car.

Disadvantage: Because the walker is light, if a lot of force is needed to sit down on it, the walker may slip backwards. Also keep in mind that the urea will eventually run off the driveway and can harm waterways. 5. Invest in a Mat. If it’s time to replace your driveway and you live in a cold climate, you might consider installing a snow melt mat. 6. Alternative Ice-Melts.

Previous Next 1 of 8 Types of walkers. If you break a bone in your leg or foot or you’re at risk of falling, a walker can make it easier for you to get around. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist about the options, including: Standard walker. This walker has four nonskid, rubber-tipped legs to provide stability.

You must pick it up to move. Walking in snow isn’t easy for anyone, and it is especially difficult for people with limited mobility. When the snow has fallen recently, it is crunchy and doesn’t pose too many problems, but when it melts partially, it can get highly slippery.

This gives rise to walking problems for everyone, particularly for the disabled. Here are some tips for disabled people to walk on the snowy ground. Previous Next 3 of 8 Fitting your walker.

Adjust your walker so that it fits your arms comfortably. This will reduce stress on your shoulders and back as you use the walker. To tell if your walker is the correct height, step inside your walker and: Check your elbow bend.

Keeping your shoulders relaxed, place your hands on the grips.
