Acute Spinal Cord Injury & Mobility
Acute spinal cord injury references a condition where the spinal cord has been bruised or torn, potentially resulting from a traumatic injury such as a fall. Results may vary based upon the extent of this damage and a lack of communication from nerve cells may disrupt the body’s daily functions from the brain to the body’s muscle groups. These injuries, while discomforting, may span from a mild setback that may be remedied from a combination of prescriptions and physical therapy to potentially long-term impairment that challenges mobility.
What are common symptoms of acute spinal cord injury?
Common symptoms of acute spinal cord injury include, but may not be limited to:
- Temporary loss in movement
- Tingling and burning sensations in the arms and legs while walking, sitting, or standing
- Breathing problems
- Loss of other bodily functions
These symptoms may be temporary or have permanence depending upon the extent of the injury. Common injury stems from falls, automobile accidents, sports, or trampolines, just to name a few.
What impact on mobility may stem from acute spinal cord injuries?
This traumatic injury can impact a person’s overall mobility through reduction in movement, numbness, difficulty walking, or a need for mobility support. At TOPRO, our line of mobility products was created to support those who may have lost confidence in their ability to move about resulting from mild or severe acute spinal cord injuries. Unlike traditional walkers and rollators, the modern, European design combined with environmental sustainability and the desire for users to confidently live an active lifestyle were at the heart of our engineers as they designed TOPRO’s product line. Whether mobility assistance is short term or for many years, confidence in mobility aligns with confidence in product functionality, which is why TOPRO offers an industry-leading 7-year warranty.
How TOPRO may assist while recovering from or living with an acute spinal cord injury?
Based upon the needed therapy to rebuild your strength and mobility confidence, TOPRO Taurus may be beneficial while working with a therapist. This upright walker offers forearm rests and adjustable heights that may accommodate your strength building and mobility retraining exercises. The easy-to-use height adjustments, wide base, and ergonomic handles promote proper posture while engaging in movements.
Additionally, when confidence is reestablished, yet mobility may still be challenging, a TOPRO rollator may provide that added assistance so that active daily lifestyles that were once commonplace may occur again. TOPRO mobility products may help with walking, maintaining good posture, and improving balance and control.
