For many wheelchair users, they find that they are wheelchair-bound for long periods throughout the day. This can often cause a range of problems, including pain and discomfort. Factors such as excessive pressure and a poor seated posture can increase the risk of pressure-related injuries, which can lead to painful pressure sores.
Solving this problem will come from acquiring a wheelchair cushion. They can not only increase the wheelchair user’s comfort as well as improving their posture, but importantly, it can provide pressure relief, which can help to reduce the risk of skin breakdown.
For bedridden patients, trying to remain comfortable while lying in bed for prolonged periods, can be a real struggle. Whether the patient is infirm, recovering from surgery, or they are suffering with a mobility impairment, being confined to a bed can not only be a frustrating experience, but it can also be detrimental to their wellbeing.
The solution to this problem is a Geri chair. These reclining chairs are fitted with wheels, allowing the caregiver to wheel the patient out of the confines of their bedroom. They provide a comfortable and supportive seat where the individual can sit for extended periods, while they recover.
A mobility scooter or electric wheelchair can provide patients with reduced mobility the independence and freedom to explore the outside world.
The problem arises when they need to travel longer distances, and need to transport their mobility devices with them in their vehicles. Trying to load and unload a bulky scooter or powerchair into a vehicle can prove particularly challenging, especially if the individual suffers from impaired upper mobility, or they are unsteady on their feet.
To be able to do this with ease and no strain, the answer is a scooter/wheelchair lift.
The bedroom, and the most important item the bed, is supposed to be your haven. This is where you are comfortable and relaxed, and getting the restful sleep, that everyone needs to become reenergized for the coming day.
But for the infirm, and those with impaired mobility, the bed may become a problem. Shifting positions in bed, and getting in and out of bed, if you haven’t the strength, is challenging. You may need to rely on a caregiver to help with these activities, which is not what you want if you want to remain independent.
Nothing beats a long hot soak in a tub especially if you are full of aches and pains. But if you suffer from mobility problems, and can’t manage to get in or out of a tub, the only other solution is the shower.
A walk-in bathtub can make bathing easier and safer for individuals who are unable to use a traditional bathtub. No more struggling to get in or out or worrying about slips and falls, just step into the tub, and close the door behind you, and sit down and relax and enjoy the experience, in a safe and secure environment.
Nothing is better than getting a healthy, delicious meal, to boost your energy levels. For many people with mobility impairments however, this can sometimes be only a dream, especially as cooking and going grocery shopping can prove immensely challenging. They want to be independent, but not have the stress of trying to put together meals, to set them up for the day.
This is why meal delivery services are the way to compromise and have stress free healthy and delicious food delivered directly to your door, without the need to leave home.
