Did you know? The 2018 Malaysian National Health and Morbidity Survey (NHMS) reported that 15% of individuals aged above 60 had fallen at least once over 12 months. One in two suffer injuries, while one in five were hospitalised. How then do we prevent injuries or falls from happening? Ever considered getting mobility aids for your senior loved one?
Join us for this three-part series where we talk about the different wheelchairs and mobility aids that can be helpful and suitable for individuals especially seniors who are within the active, semi-active, or dependent range.
In Part One, we covered the topic of mobility aids and wheelchairs as alternatives for individuals in the active group. For the second part, we explain mobility aids who are those in the semi-dependent group and the benefits of the wheelchair we would like to highlight suitable for individuals in this group. In the final part of this three-part series, we will talk about the individuals in the non-active group and the most suitable wheelchair for those who are bedridden or who are immobile.
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure; and we decided to team up with Home Care Shop (under Pinang Medical Centre) to talk about some mobility equipment that can help individuals choose the best equipment for themselves.
Pinang Medical Supplies (PMS), is the largest supplier of a wide range of branded medical and healthcare products to the medical profession and the public throughout Malaysia. They are also the biggest home care chain stores in Malaysia.
