Personal Aids to Help You Keep Your Independence
Independence is important. If getting around the home is sometimes a struggle for you, or if you work in a care home, you’ll know this more than anyone. Independently making food, moving around under your own power, or just taking a long, relaxing shower are things a lot of us take for granted, and it can be hard to adjust when your body doesn’t allow you to do them freely anymore. Luckily there is a massive variety of mobility aids available to help you carry on living an independent life. If you value your independence or the independence of others, browse the categories above. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for keep reading for a more in-depth guide to our mobility aids for home and business use.
The bathroom is supposed to be a place for you to relax with your thoughts and wash away the stresses of the day. If you find it hard to sit down or get up, though, using the bathroom can be a painful experience. Luckily, with a few simple additions, it’s easy to make your bathroom more accessible!
Grab rails can make a world of difference to your day-to-day life. When fixed to the wall, they give you something to grab onto when standing up or sitting down. They also offer a little extra security if you’re worried about slipping on a wet floor. You can put them next to your toilet, bath, or shower, and there is a variety of different models available depending on what you need.
Our range includes long, foldaway grab rails which are ideal for bathrooms of all sizes. They give you a much larger area to grab onto and can be folded away to save space when not in use. We also stock regular grab bars in many different shapes and sizes, and a range of finishes.
Perching Stools and Shower Chairs
If you enjoy relaxing in the shower, you’ll want a perching stool! They allow you to sit comfortably in the shower, protecting your legs if you struggle to stand for long periods. They can also be situated outside of the shower so you can sit down while drying off and getting dressed.
Commodes are designed to help those with more severe mobility issues, who find it difficult to get on and off the toilet even with a grab rail. There are two main types; one style fits over a toilet, while another has an attached bedpan. Browse our range and choose the one that fits your needs best.
Food and Drinks Trolleys
If you enjoy preparing your own food and drinks, or if you run a care home and need to serve several meals at once, a wheeled trolley is a great help. We only stock high-quality models that are suitable for use in either the home or a care home setting, so you can buy with confidence.
Suffering from swollen, tender legs is an incredibly common problem as we get older. Sometimes, the heart can struggle to pump blood all the way around your body effectively. It can push it all the way down to your feet but it doesn’t always pump hard enough to push it back up into your body again. All this excess fluid in your legs is what causes the swelling – it’s usually not serious, and is common in older people, people with leg injuries, or pregnant women. By using a leg raiser, you can elevate your leg, making it easier for blood to flow properly around your whole body.
Handy reachers can be used for almost anything – they’re a household essential! If you use a wheelchair or if you find stretching difficult, you can use a handy reacher to pick things up from the floor or a high shelf, drawing and opening curtains, and anything else you can think of.
Wheelchairs and Accessibility
Our range of mobility aids includes an amazing range of products you can use at home or at work, to make your business more accessible. We stock wheelchairs, tri-walkers, and other mobility aids, as well as a range of access ramps to make any room disabled-friendly.
Wheelchairs are an essential part of everyday life for millions of people. It’s important to find a model you can rely on, whether it’s for yourself, someone you care for, or for your workplace. Care homes and hospitals need a large supply of wheelchairs, but they’re not the only workplaces that need to provide wheelchairs. Museums, exhibition centres, and other public-facing businesses should offer wheelchairs to make it easier for any disabled customers that may want to visit.
While they’re mainly intended for business use, our range of access ramps can be used to make your home more accessible, too. We stock a range of different sizes that can be used both indoors and outdoors to provide wheelchair access in almost any environment. In our access ramp category, you can also find telescopic access ramps that can be carried around in vans and minicabs.
Tri-Walkers and Walking Frames
Tri-walkers and walking frames are a great way to support someone when they walk if they don’t want to use a wheelchair, which can be tricky to wheel around in a tight space. They’re ideal for shopping trips and moving around the house – our tri-walkers even come with a handy bag for carrying shopping.
