Independence is one of the primary goals of medical equipment. And the ability to get around and travel—weather to the store, doctors’ appointments or family gatherings—remains a key factor in personal independence. And when you’re in Tampa? Well there’s just too much to do around here to be limited by mobility.
So what do you do when a medical condition challenges your mobility, your independence, and your whole lifestyle?
Well, if you’re in the greater Tampa Bay area, you call or stop by Helios Medical Equipment on North Dale Mabry.
Here are some of the ways Helios provides impeccable mobility service to Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Tampa-area Mobility Equipment Variables
Medical mobility equipment, mobility aids and related medical supplies span a big range. This selection means that your choices can be overwhelming. But the good news is, a wide range of products means that the medical industry already makes something that is just right for you and your needs—especially when you have a trained medical supply professional to guide you through selection, fitting, adjustments and accessories.
Mobility issues take many forms, and can be short-term, long-term or permanent. Mobility can be impeded by disease, injury to, or recent medical procedure performed on, any part of your lower body, from your pelvis and hips, knees and leg muscles, down to your ankles, feet and toes. These conditions might be related to bone, ligaments and tendons, joints, cartilage, even blood vessels or skin. The issue might be pain, weakness, instability or range of motion, and it might be cause by local, spinal or neurological conditions.
We also need to take into account your lifestyle: Your home and living situation, vehicle or other transport, even hobbies and favorite activities.
All of these variables relate to the type of mobility aid best for you.
