People, irrespective of age, can experience mobility difficulties; this can be either without warning or a gradual onset. If you have a mobility problem there are various equipment types that can help one get mobile and lead an independent life again. Mobility assistance comes in many forms such as invalid motability cars disabled wheelchair vans manual wheelchairs motorised power wheel chairs stair & wheel chair lifts electric motorized wheelchairs mobility scooters invalid walkers walking sticks walking frames stairlifts invalid beds disabled showers & baths access ramps as well as a wide variety of other handy products, most notably security products for around the house.
Assistive devices for invalids also come in various forms; these include grab rails riser-recliner chairs bath seats stair lifts walking frames bed tables walking sticks helping hands adapted shoe-horns walk-in baths hoists raised lavatory seats adjustable invalid beds access ramps handicapped scooters specially adapted vehicles pedestrian-controlled or self-controlled invalid motorised wheelchairs manual or electric disabled wheelchairs.
In most cases, an occupational therapy assessment will be necessary to determine the exact needs of the disabled individual. This can be arranged with a qualified occupational therapist, privately or as part of the hospital invalid discharge procedure, or via the associated community medical support departments. The assessment by the occupational therapist will help establish which equipment and adaptations are required to meet the person's specific disability needs. Installation of equipment, including training in its use, should be supervised by an experienced occupational therapist.
There are many manufacturers and distributors of mobility equipment. When purchasing or renting an invalid assistive device you should always use an established manufacturer and distributor. Ensure the disablility product you have selected to buy or hire is demonstrated beforehand, and that its delivery as well installation on your premises are included in the price. Make sure that you check the guarantees and after-sales service before finalising the purchase.
Almost all disability equipment can be hired and purchased second-hand. Always check second-hand invalid products you are buying. Be aware about second-hand disability products - due to previous use and abuse tend to have a shorter usability life. Also, guarantees for a product may have expired or is not transferable to the new purchaser. Make sure that you request for original instructions and check the equipment is working and who could service / repair it in the local area of residence.
