To make life easier with FA, I have learned how and when to use different assistive devices. Right now, I use a rollator to help walk, when I am out in public. Inside my apartment, I use a cane. When I am out in public going long distances, attending an event or visiting somewhere, I use a wheelchair to lessen fatigue and walking. How many different types of devices do you use?
