Hey! I’ve had RA upwards of 20 years now, and I have not known much else in my life- I have recently starting having a harder time out and about. What mobility aids do you use, if any? And how did you come to your decision. I am considering a chair for ambulatory use as my hands are not always reliable for holding a cane.

      I decided on a rollator because it gives me a place to sit down whenever I need it, and it doesn’t require the strength to push myself around like a manual wheelchair

      For me I know I can't hold a cane because of my hand pain but compression gloves help me A LOT! Just makes things less painful but I'm currently also looking at mobility aids :/

      I’ve heard really good things about compression gloves- where did you get yours? How does that work with holding the cane?
