Results of Mobility Loss

Aging, accidents, neurological damage, and other disabilities can result in the loss of mobility or create physical struggles. Losing our ability to be independently mobile can have many affects on us beyond the obvious. Mobility struggles can cause further emotional, mental and physical struggles. That is why it is important to have the mobility tools we specialize in at Suncoast Mobility. Mobility equipment can help you regain your freedom, health and happiness.

The loss of mobility can affect your social life which can have detrimental effects on your health and happiness. Human beings are innately social and being taken out of our community can negatively effect our mental and emotional health. It is important to find ways to connect with others even when movement isn’t as easy as it once was. Relying on a mobility device can be very helpful to getting you back out and about.

It is easy to fall into unhealthy patterns when your mobility becomes limited. The lack of movement and exercise can cause weight gain, illness, and increased struggles with mobility. For some the struggle and stress may cause appetite and weight loss, which can be just as detrimental. Even when struggles begin with mobility and you become reliant on a scooter or wheelchair it is important to move your body if and whenever possible. Speak to your doctor about when it is time to intervene and get your first mobility device and how you can work to keep as healthy as possible when doing so.

The loss of mobility does not need to be the end of your health, happiness and social life. Mobility scooters, power wheelchairs, and lift recliners are aids that can help you maintain an active life and continue doing the things you enjoy. Be sure to first discuss with your doctor if one of these options is right for you and your lifestyle. Contact Suncoast Mobility and one of our experts will help match you with the perfect selection to regain your independence!
