We all value our independence, without it we can feel defeated, depressed and at a loss.
It is therefore imperative that people living with disabilities have as much encouragement and aid to help maintain a healthy independent lifestyle whether that is something as simple as opening packaging, putting socks on or travelling and engaging in social activities whilst creating a sense of independence.We offer gadgets that allow an individual living with a disability to keep their independence doing day-to-day tasks inside and outside their home.
A real sense of achievement can be created with a hobby such as maintaining beautiful and accessible gardens, not only will this improve self-esteem but it will also provide a sense of fulfilment. The Rolling Garden Work Seat allows you to sit down comfortably whilst weeding and planting without having to bend or kneel recommended for anyone who has reduced mobility, joint pain or back problems.
It can be frustrating for individuals with mobility issues to have to ask for help or assistance, not only is it embarrassing for them but it can also begin to put doubt on their own ability to care for themselves. Something as regular as putting your socks on and taking them off can be proven very frustrating & time consuming. The Sock Aid offers a solution for those who suffer from arthritis or mobility problems, this allows the user to independently slide their foot into a sock securely without having to bend, stretch or twist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBFovRkKWds
