Finding ways to overcome some of the practical problems of independent living using specialised equipment will make life easier. Yet dealing with limited mobility often means that not only can the most simple tasks become difficult, but maintaining comfort isn’t always easy either. So we’ve put together a list of items which can help ease some of those problems and make you more comfortable at home.
Inflatable Bath Cushion
If you have problems getting in and out of the bath, a bath cushion is a far more cost effective solution to a walk in bath. The cushion provides soft support and both lowers you into the bath and up again, at the touch of a button. Battery powered, it requires no fixtures, and can also easily be taken away on holiday or visits.
Relaxing in a comfortable position is easy with a recliner chair. Being able to raise the chair to get out without effort means you’re able to relax without worrying about how to get up again.
Lowering yourself onto and away from the lavatory can be a considerable challenge when you have limited mobility. An adjustable toilet surround helps solve this problem.
Pillows and Cushions
If you need to spend a lot of time in bed or sitting, then it’s important to support your posture and help prevent backache with the correct cushioning. High grade foam supports mould themselves to shape and provide firm but comfortable support for your back.
