A Guide to Innovative Home Mobility Aids
People who live with disabilities on a daily basis can lose their sense of independence by having to constantly rely on friends and family for support. In the past, this loss of independence was felt more acutely, however, in the modern age, there have been a number of technological developments that make life much easier. These inventions mean that elderly people, or people suffering from disabilities, can get around their home and outside with little help. Here are just a few of the mobility aid innovations that helped over the years.
When thinking of mobility aids, the first thing that’s likely to come to mind is wheelchairs. Although these inventions have been around for some time now, electric wheelchairs are in constant development and have adapted to a wide range of needs. Some electric wheelchairs allow the user transition from a seated to a standing position and the different drive types and tyre tractions allow for movement on any terrain and through tight spaces.
Through Floor Lifts
If an elderly or disabled person lives in a multi-storey home that they don’t want to leave, it can be very difficult to get up and down the stairs. However, through floor lifts provide the user with the ability to get from the ground floor to the top floor with no effort or time at all. As the name suggests, these lifts go straight through the ceilings and floor to carry the user to the desired level.
Installing an accessible bathroom is one of the very best ways for an elderly or disabled person to regain their independence. Using the bathroom facilities can be a very difficult task for people with mobility issues, however, products like shower cubicles, seats, rail and folding doors allow the resident to use the bathroom without any help and in a safe and secure way.
