Concern of Tripping

Good morning everyone. My name is John & my wife Claire has
Secondary Progressive MS. I am very worried that her tripping & falling around the home as its a challenge to get her back up. Are there any techniques ?

These exercises demonstrate what’s needed to get up, but it looks like some muscle strength is going to be needed.
Do you know what is causing her to trip, because prevention will be safer.

Hi John. I tend to agree with @whammel that prevention is best. If your wife is anything like me then the suggestion of using a Rollator won’t go down well but it could be useful.

Thanks to @whammel for the link to the MS Trust - very useful and might spur me into being more active!
