Affordable Mobility Equipment for Carers

Affordable Mobility Equipment for Carers

As a carer, you have immense responsibility over the life of someone with mobility issues and many challenges as a result. However, there are a wide variety of living aids that could help make the home environment safer, giving you peace of mind and the person you care for more autonomy. You can take advantage of the convenience of disability living aids for the home and on the go. At the Mobility Aids Centre, we’ve been providing carers with the right equipment to enhance their patients’ lives for over 40 years, and in this article, we detail the different pieces of equipment that can help in different situations.

Transfer Aids

Whether you’re inside or out, transferring from different places is a constant need. Getting in and out of bed, a car, a bath, from a wheelchair to a sofa and more is a regular set of obstacles for those with mobility issues. At The Mobility Aids Centre, we have a range of specialist and lightweight transfer aids that bring portable solutions to make the transfer process easier. This includes swivel seats that allow the person you care for to smoothly come in and out of a car seat, as well as adjustable bath steps to give them a boost to climb into the bath, and a bed rope ladder that they can use to pull themselves up out of bed. Piece by piece, these small transfer aids add up to a much more mobile life for the person you care for.

Walking Aids

When going out for walks, giving your patient independent support with a walking aid will free your arms and help them build upper body strength. It can be as simple as a walking stick, and ours can come with an ergonomic grip, quadruple base for extra stability or even the ability to fold up into, say, a trolley. Despite their simple purpose, walking sticks are one of the most important living aids, enabling your patient to get around and experience the world on their own two feet.

Wheelchair and Scooter Accessories

Many disabled people who have mobility issues use a wheelchair or scooter, and this can be a great opportunity to attach additional equipment to benefit their lives and your care.

Wheelchair accessories such as cushions for comfort, storage bags, and a waterproof seat cover can enhance how long they can sit down, how much you can take with you and how long you can last in the rain, making daily life more convenient all around. Plus, if there are steps leading to the home, installing a ramp will allow the person you care for to easily navigate to their house in their wheelchair and also at those times when you can’t be there to care for them.

Adaptive Clothing & Bedding

Come bedtime, it’s more likely that you as a carer will not be around to assist. But that doesn’t mean the challenges stop, and it’s important that the person you’re caring for has the equipment and protection to ensure a comfortable and secure night’s sleep.

Items such as bed wedge cushions are designed to offer both upright and reclining support, whether in bed or on any flat surface. For those concerned about nighttime hygiene, we present our range of absorbent pads and underwear. In addition, our washable chair and bed pads not only provide hygienic protection but also serve as an eco-friendly solution. Every product is thoughtfully designed, ensuring that the person being cared for can find solace during the night and have a peaceful sleep.

The Mobility Aids Centre is here to empower those with mobility issues to lead fulfilling independent lives, and we supply the equipment to make that possible. Browse our online store today, and if you have any further questions, contact us or visit our showroom and our team would be happy to answer your queries.

  • Ordered a folding shower seat with 2 grab bars in the morning and these were delivered to me in the afternoon of the same day - that is what I call service. However the following day a further 2 Grab Bars were delivered and the co said that they would collect these the same day - still waiting after 1 week and another call - not so good and still waiting. A point that the co should consider is that we are finding it difficult to get someone to fit the shower seat and they are unable to provide any guidance or help. would suggest that they collect names and telephone numbers of local tradesmen who are trusted to fit their mobility equipment and provide guidance on fitting

  • Called into the shop for a shower chair for an elderly relative. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They didn't have the one I needed so I was offered the option of ordering in store or online. I ordered on line and the chair was delivered 2 days later. Fabulous service.I would recommend the Mobility Aids Centre. Thank you!

  • Fantastic service, I order a Bathmaster Deltis bath chair lift on the 18/08/2015 and using the standard delivery system it was delivered to my house the following day. The chair works very well, it comes packed in the manufactures original box, battery ready charged for instantaneous use and at a very competitive price. Very good performance all round.

  • I was looking for a buggy for adults and the one I purchased named Troy. was excellent, I can put it up & down in seconds. The wheels are superbly easy to turn with. My husband says it is very comfortable and the black leather with red piping is very smart. When folded up there is a padded grip in the middle of the frame, which is perfectly balanced to lift it in and out of cars etc. a wonderfully strong but light wheelchair.
