Using a cane or crutches can help people with limited mobility live life to the fullest and move independently at home and on the go. With cane and crutches accessories, it can be even easier to use a mobility aid on a daily basis. Plus, the right cane and crutch accessories make it possible to continue to use mobility aids safely over time. CVS has a wide range of cane and crutches accessories available for you to buy online and have shipped to your home.
Both canes and crutches have rubberized cane tips that keep the mobility aids from slipping out of place during use. Over time, the rubber material will begin to show wear and tear, particularly if you frequently use your canes and crutches on rough surfaces like roads, sidewalks, parking lots and driveways. Fortunately, you do not have to replace your cane or crutches just because the tips have become worn. Replacement tips allow you to easily maintain your existing cane or crutches. When shopping for replacement tips, it's a good idea to measure the diameter of the base of your crutches or cane to ensure that you select a product that will fit properly.
Like tips, the padding on crutches can break down over time or become soiled due to heavy use. When this occurs, you can purchase replacement padding. Typically, replacement padding for crutches is sold in a set with two pads for the tops and two pads for the hand grips. If you experience discomfort in your hand while using your mobility aid, you may wish to purchase padding accessories. You can find cushioned grips for canes and extra cushions for crutches among cane and crutches accessories. Most replacement and supplemental padding products for canes and crutches are designed to fit most mobility aids; however, you should still carefully read the description to ensure that the product you're considering will work with your cane or crutches.
Some cane and crutch accessories are designed specifically to make it easier to use, carry or store mobility aids. Cane tip extensions can be added to canes to provide extra stability and support. Straps can be attached to canes to make them simpler to tote and to prevent them from slipping out of a user's hand during use. There are also travel bags and pouches that can be attached to canes and crutches to carry personal belongings when you're traveling or around the house.
