Choosing the right mobility equipment is important for your health and safety. Read the product descriptions carefully so that you understand the capacities, dimensions and benefits of each product. Your physical capabilities must also be considered when choosing the right mobility equipment. Your doctor, caregiver or health care professional can help recommend the best type of equipment for your current and future mobility needs. When it comes to getting around, Allegro is sure to have exactly what you need.
Canes can be used for balance (single tip) or to bear your full weight (quad). The top of the cane should be at the same level as the crease on the back side of your wrist with your arms at your side. Measure the distance from your wrist to the floor, with shoes on.

For balance, or if you are at risk for falling, a walker may be the perfect choice. Rule of thumb: A standard walker without wheels is most stable. Walkers with wheels may get you around faster, though, because you can put your weight on the walker as you move. Rollators, or 4-wheeled walkers really keep you moving.
