Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an umbrella term for a range of respiratory conditions including emphysema, chronic asthma and bronchitis.

Symptoms include coughing, wheezing, breathlessness and fatigue while carrying out normal, everyday activities. These symptoms can fluctuate in severity depending on the weather or time of day.

Mobility support and assistive equipment that make everyday tasks easier can be invaluable for people with COPD, enabling them to conserve energy for the things they enjoy. Read more at Mobility Centre Store.
