The Impact of Old Age on Mobility

going up ramp

There are many health and well-being complications that can come with old age, but mobility is one of the most burdening when it comes to everyday life. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, mobility has been determined as the most common disability among older Americans. In that census, approximately 10.4 million Americans have reported having difficulty walking or climbing.

Limited mobility can bring along issues with one’s physical and mental health. Mobility is essential for independent living because of all the daily activities that require standing and walking for extended periods. Whether it be shopping, cooking, traveling, or just moving about the home, limited mobility can make these simple tasks become giant obstacles. Limited mobility also increases the risk of falling and suffering an injury.

Seniors can cope with limited mobility by purchasing mobility scooters. However, many of these devices can be bulky, require a lot of effort, or be difficult to maneuver. Accessibility or storage for these devices when traveling or performing day-to-day activities can be hard to come by as well.
