What Type of Crutch Is Appropriate for You?

Walking aids are supposed to support people with injuries or mobility problems. With crutches, you have to pick the right one for you considering your condition. You can choose among these types:

• Underarm crutches or Axillary crutches: This type of crutch is usually used by people with short-term injuries.

• Forearm crutches or Lofstrand crutches: This type of crutch is usually to support those with long-term injuries.

• Platform crutches: This is usually for people who can’t grip properly like those with arthritis.

Factors to Consider When Buying a Wheelchair

Are you planning to buy a wheelchair for a loved one? Take note of these:

• Is the patient capable of maneuvering a wheelchair? There is actually a type of wheelchair designed for self-maneuvering. If the patient needs assistance, there’s an attendant-propel one.

• The size of the recipient. You can choose a wheelchair comfortable for a specific height, width, and weight.

• The wheelchair’s portability. Would there be times you carry it in the car? Do you have enough area at home to put it on?

Top 3 Reasons Why You Can Take Vaccines

Vaccines can strengthen your and your family’s immunity. Here are the reasons why vaccines are beneficial for your family:

1. Tested for safety
These tests are conducted in medical laboratories, which can take years to finish. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) implements a strict evaluation of safety and effectiveness.

2. Tested for Quality
The FDA inspects laboratories where vaccines are created to ensure these are potent, pure, and sterile.

3. Monitored before recommended
Once a vaccine gets approved by the FDA, it’s recommended for public use but still with strict monitoring for safety.

Do you have immunization inquiries? Contact us.
