It’s a fact that the US population is living longer and therefore may be in need of Aids to Daily Living. A large portion of these aids are related to mobility and therefore may be helpful due to arthritis, accident or illness. Total Joint Replacement (TJR) is becoming one of the most commonly performed elective surgeries. This includes total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement (TKR). One such mobility aid is the portable EZ-Step Stair Climbing Cane, made by EZ-Step Mobility. For close to 20 years, the EZ-Step has been assisting those individuals with ambulatory or mobility issues, climb stairs, curbs and sidewalks. It’s also great for getting in and out of automobiles, travel trailers and motorhomes with large steps.
A University Study concluded that using the EZ-Step Stair Climbing Cane reduces both the Range of Motion (ROM) and Joint Force Impact required when ascending and descending stairs. Since falling is the number one injury to seniors, the lightweight (2 lbs.) design of the EZ-Step Stair Climbing Cane may help prevent such an accident.
