Is any special equipment required for me to consider for my at-home recovery?

Special equipment may help the patient with an easier recovery such as the following:

Shower Seat, elevated toilet seat, handrails or grab bars for getting in and out of the tub, grasping device designed to help pull on socks and shoes, a walker can be used for several weeks, an extra cushion can be used on your sofa or chair to assist you in getting up from a sitting position.
