Great living aids that will support your independent living

Posted by

When your body is less agile, muscles stiff or joints begin to ache, simple tasks can be more difficult. Therefore it can be more challenging to go about your normal daily activities independently, whether the limited mobility comes from disability, age or chronic pain.

Living aids are beneficial for people who want some assistance when doing daily tasks. They simplify the process of a simple task by decreasing any strain on your body, such as getting in and out of the car safety or opening a bottle. There are many different daily living aids to help support your independent living.

Here are our top five daily living aids that we think could help you in your everyday life.

Handy Bar – Car Transfer Bar 

Getting in and out of a car can sometimes be hard if you have limited mobility. The handles in many cars are not always placed in a great area and, they are not so stable to rely on.

The Handybar is a portable handle which helps people get in and out of their car safely. Due to its leverage point. That creates stability and reduce the amount of exertion as well as the risk of injury.

Grabbing or picking something up when you have reduced mobility can both be hard and painful. Reachers are a great living aid that allows you to pick up items easily.

The Handi-Reacher is an ultra-lightweight and robust reacher that will assist with retrieving or reaching things while at home, in the garden or when shopping. There is also the Combi Reacher Long 80cm, that has a head that revolves 360, minimising the need to swivel the wrist and cause potential pain.
