I have severe MS disease. What type of bedroom carpet should I get?
The type of carpet you need depends on whether you are still walking; If you are still walking you probably want a hardwood floor or very low carpet (1/4 inch pile) without a pad that you will not catch your foot on when you walk. If you are wheelchair bound you can probably use a 1/4 or 1/2 inch pile carpet with or without a pad.
