Disability Equipment Today – by Allen Maccey

No Comments 31 January 2010

Disability equipment can be very beneficial in helping the disabled individual
to be confident despite their disability. This is significant because, unfortunately,
many disabled individuals may suffer from low self esteem as a result of impaired
mobility or other disabilities. Although these individuals may be highly intelligent,
attractive and friendly their disability may still cause self consciousness. Equipment
which minimizes the impact of the disability can help the individual to gain confidence
by giving them a sense of independence.
Those with limited mobility may be at an especially high risk for issues related
to a lack of confidence. The ability to get around is important because mobility
enables an individual to attend to simple tasks such as grocery shopping, banking,
visiting friends and even just getting out of bed and going to the bathroom
without the assistance of others. Individuals who have impaired mobility may
not be able to accomplish these tasks without the assistance of others. As a
result they may feel as though they are in some way inadequate.
Equipment such as wheelchairs, scooters and adjustable beds are just a few
of the items which can help those with limited mobility to feel more self confident
and independent. A wheelchair can be a very important piece of equipment for
an individual with impaired mobility. Some wheelchairs are designed specifically
for indoor use, others are designed specifically for outdoor use and still others
can be used both inside and outside. In selecting a wheelchair the individual
should carefully consider the purposes for which they will be using the wheelchair.
If the wheelchair will be used either exclusively indoors or outdoors it might
be worthwhile to invest in a wheelchair specifically for indoor or outdoor use.
However, if the individual anticipates using the wheelchair both indoors and
outdoors it might be worthwhile to either invest in two wheelchairs or to invest
in a versatile wheelchair which can be used in either location.
scooters can also be useful for those with limited mobility. These devices
allow the individual to enjoy activities such as wandering through the neighborhood,
shopping or visiting nearby friends. The ability to accomplish these simple
activities can have a profound effect on the self esteem of the individual.
beds can also be useful for those who are mobility impaired. Some individuals
may have some mobility but may be have difficulty with tasks such as getting
out of bed. An adjustable bed can be useful in this situation because it incline
and decline and also raise and lower depending on the needs of the individual.
Adjustable beds are beneficial for those who are permanently disabled but may
also be useful for those who are recovering from an injury or a surgery.
Those with hearing impairments may also benefit from the use of equipment designed
specifically for their disability. Hearing aids are beneficial because they
allow the individual to be included in conversations without the use of an interpreter.
This is important because many would likely feel as though they are a burden
if they required assistance to participate in a conversation.

Comfort And Dressing Mobility Aids – by Handy Healthcare

No Comments 29 January 2010

If getting yourself dressed is getting harder and harder, and doing up buttons and zips is becoming more difficult, then a selection of dressing mobility aids can make things easier.

Here is a list of 5 types of mobility dressing aids which are designed to aid those with limited dexterity and mobility.

1. Dressing aids such as dressing sticks, button hooks, zip pullers and zip grips can make the daily task of getting dressed much easier. There are various types of dressing stick available, but they are usually quite similar. They have a hook, or an S shaped hook at one end, and possibly another dressing aid such as a shoehorn, at the other end. They work by hooking to the clothing that you are trying to put on. This can make putting on clothing such as shirts, blouses, jackets and cardigans much easier and without the need to stretch as far. Button hooks can greatly assist when dressing one handed. The button hook passes through the button hole, and over the button to grip the thread, and is pulled through in a twisting motion. Zip pullers have a long, sometimes thick handle, which allow those with limited mobility, or a weak grip, to easily raise or lower zips. Zip grips attach to the zip, and are similar to a zip puller, and provide additional grip and leverage.

2. Sock and stocking aids allow those who have difficulties bending over, or reaching, to put on socks and stockings more easily. The sock or stocking is fed on to the aid, and the foot is inserted into the sock or stocking, which is held secure by long tapes. The sock or stocking is then pulled up the leg using the long tapes. Tights aids, using the same methods, are also available. There are other slightly different sock and stocking aids, which may be more appropriate depending on the dexterity and mobility of the user.

3. Traditional grooming products such as hair brushes and nail clippers can be difficult to use for those with a weak grip or limited mobility. Ergonomically designed long handled hair brushes and combs are available for those who have difficulty using traditional brushes and combs. Depending on the model, the brush or comb may fold into its handle, similar to a Swiss Army Knife, to make the brush or comb pocket sized. Table top nail clippers are useful for those with mobility or dexterity problems. These nail clippers may have a light, or a magnifying glass, or an emery board fitted, depending on the model, and can be operated one handed even by those with a weak grip or limited mobility.

4. There are various mobility products available to ensure foot comfort, such as specialist socks, toe separators and insoles. Socks for diabetics, are totally ridgeless and have flat seams and have an elastic free top. They are both smart and traditional looking, and so are suitable for everyday use. Toe separators are available to reduce pressure and friction between toes and can protect corns, calluses and other foot ailments. Some types of toe pads are available with mineral oil in them to soften and lubricate the skin. Shock absorbing insoles can help to prevent aches and pains in the feet, legs and back. They work by evenly distributing energy, and rebounding to their original thickness.

5. Once dressed, staying warm can be a problem for some people. There are hot water bottles and wheat packs that can be warmed in a microwave oven and some have the additional therapeutic benefits of lavender. Warm packs and collars can help to ease back and neck pain without additional medication. Heated seating pads, similar to electric blankets, are also available and can provide warmth to any area of the body.

These are just a few examples of the range and variety of mobility dressing aids that are available. Why not see if there’s something that could make your daily living easier?

Buy Electric wheelchairs online

Electric wheelchairs mobility for virtually any type of disability.

Innovations have made control of electric wheelchairs manageable for everyone. Today, manual and electric wheelchairs have become a physical extension of the rider. But it wasn’t until 1979, when an anti-trust suit was settled, that an era of competition and design innovation began resulting in better pricing and greater mobility in both manual and electric wheelchairs.
Today we can find lightweight, transport, ultra light wheelchairs along with ramps and lifts. Now sleek sports models are used in competition as formal leagues for basketball, tennis, racing and many other sports are developed for users of manual and electric wheelchairs.

An estimated 2 million Americans use mobility products and/or motorized scooters. For some, obstacles such as stairs, elevated curbs and rocky terrain may no longer pose such a steep challenge.

The Food and Drug Administration has approved what is being called the SUV of electric wheelchairs. The iBOT, priced at $29,000, can climb stairs, bound up curbs, and glide through gravel, sand and grass. It can even elevate a seated passenger to reach the top shelf at a grocery store.
You’ll be able to easily find manual and electric wheelchairs as well as sports model wheelchairs that support a variety of activities and lifestyles. Comfort, quality and affordability are attributes that we know are important to users and that is what you’ll find as you shop for electric wheelchairs and wheelchair accessories in the online store.
