A man with his father in a wheelchair in a fieldIf you are in the Alpharetta, Roswell, Canton, or Woodstock area in Georgia and you are experiencing some concerns with mobility, our conveniently located medical supply store is fully stocked with top brands you can trust. We carry canes and rollators as well as a full range of wheelchairs and scooters. Shopping for something this personal is easier at our store with an experienced staff ready to assist you with finding the best options to suit your needs and budget. Read on to learn more about our wide selection.

Canes  
When a fear of falling is the primary concern, your doctor may suggest a walking cane for added stability, especially on uneven or slippery ground. That said, you probably want a cane that is a certain weight, style, and feel. You may even want a tripod or quad cane for more support or a foldable one for easy travel and storing for occasional use. Aluminum, vinyl, or wooden, whatever you are looking for, you will find it at Northside Medical Supply. 

Walkers, Gait Trainers, and Knee Walkers
Should you require a more sturdy aid in walking short distances, our gait trainers, walkers, and knee walkers are durable and lightweight making them a cinch to use. Four wheels, two wheels, or no wheels, these mobility devices will help you stand and steady yourself as you move around safely. Speak with our knowledgable staff about which one will work best for your mobility goals. 

Rollators
For those who need a walker for longer periods of time, you may enjoy using our large selection of rollators. A rollator is essentially a walker with three to four wheels, a seat, and handbrakes for an extra level of comfort and stability. Come into our store to check out the many style choices available.

Manual Wheelchairs
There are two types of wheelchairs, manual and power (or electric). Patients recommended for this mobility device would typically like a manual model if they are using them for shorter distances, temporary use, or upper body strength building opportunities. Manual wheelchairs are also able to maneuver through crowded spaces with more precision and they are lighter weight for transportability and lifting them upstairs when necessary. Best of all, there is no battery needed! We carry durable and dependable wheelchairs for people of all ages, weight, height, and mobility needs. 

Power Wheelchairs
Electric or power wheelchairs are often selected by those experiencing difficulty with the motion and balance required to move a manual wheelchair, those wishing to use the device more frequently, those planning to ride over different types of terrain or inclines, and those intending to use the chair for longer distances. With power wheelchairs, there are some advanced features that may enable you or your loved one to feel more comfortable, allow your chair to make tighter turns, carry more passengers, go longer distances without charging the battery, or you may prefer a lighter weight model that folds quickly for faster travel. We carry all the top name brands hospitals and patients alike recommend so you can focus on finding the one that meets your needs and wish list. Since there is no one chair that fits all and the number of choices can be overwhelming, stop into our store to see our inventory up close and learn more about the available features to determine the right chair for you.

Scooters 
Patients who are interested in the power wheelchairs yet have the balance and upper body ability to hold onto a tiller with handlebars for steering purposes may enjoy the idea of owning a scooter. Our scooters come with either three or four wheels and are usually lighter weight than power wheelchairs. The advantages of owning a scooter are the device is often designed for uneven terrain, the smaller width makes it more appealing for being in a crowd, and there are travel scooters that may be disassembled allowing the device to take up less storage space in your vehicle or home. That said, a power wheelchair provides more stability and support while giving you a better turning radius. Ultimately, the choice between a scooter and a power wheelchair may come down to your insurance coverage and intended use.

In conclusion, if you or a loved one suffers from diminished mobility, your life does not have to be put on hold. There are many mobility devices in our store and on our website that can help you regain your independence once again. We believe in offering our shoppers the products that have a reputation for being the very highest in quality and performance so that the only thing you need to do when you come to our store is decide which one is your favorite. Speak to your doctor about which device is the most helpful for your health needs.
