Mobility and HPP
The reality of living with HPP is you will have to accept using special equipment and devices to aid you in your daily life. It is important to take your time in choosing which devices are comfortable and will give you the most mobility. When working with professionals that will aid you with these devices, don't be afraid to ask questions and don't be rushed into making a decision. The equipment you are choosing can be expensive so make sure it works for you. Each person is unique, and one size does not fit all, your doctor can help you with the types of devices that would be right for you. Remember to check with your health insurance as many of these devices may be covered.
Equipment And Devices You May Need
Canes ~ Crutches ~ Walkers ~ Wheelchairs
These are essential to your being independent and your well-being.
Wraps ~ Casts ~ Splints
With HPP and broken bones, these unfortunately will be needed from time to time.
Bracing (orthotics) ~ Special Shoes or Inserts
This will give you support and help avoid and heal foot fractures (however fractures can happen even with the best orthotics).
