Life Aid Accessories

 

Under this category are a variety of different items. These are products that may assist with day to day activities like twisting the cap off a water bottle or opening a particularly heavy door. Other items in this category are as simple as a magnifying glass or an all purpose stool. Transfer boards help with making the transition between sitting in bed to sitting in a wheelchair or transport chair. Most of these boards are made from wood, rectangularly shaped, and have handles on each side for safety.

Utensils With Extra Grip

 

Weighted & Non-weighted Utensils

 

Weighted utensil sets exist for those who may have trouble eating with regular, lightweight silverware. This cutlery comes with a thick, non-slip handle which is heavier than most other utensils. These thicker utensils come in weighted and non-weighted sets. They both provide extra grip and have a bulkier handle to keep your hand steady. The added weight can be useful for someone who has hand tremors, and shakiness. We also offer specialized plates and bowls that include a high rim for scooping or a raised lip for increased independence.

 

 

 

 

Hygiene

 

Hygiene is an incredibly important task that everyone should get into the habit of maintaining. Good personal hygiene lowers the risk of spreading disease and illness and can provide you with a higher sense of confidence. Hand washing is perhaps the most important part of preventing the spread of germs. However, when soap and water aren't readily available, hand sanitizer will often do the trick. It is recommended to keep a small bottle of sanitizer on you when you know you'll be away from a place you could wash your hands for an extended period of time. While hand sanitizer is beneficial to have, it is no substitute for hand washing. In order to be effective, hand sanitizer has to contain 70% alcohol. Make sure you check the percentage on the label before using the product.

Managing Medication

 

Managing Your Medication

 

Managing medication can be overwhelming, especially when someone has a plethora of pills to be taken throughout the week. Fortunately, there are solutions to this problem. A pill pod planner is a good place to start. These planners usually consist of a row of small containers that are labeled for each day of the week. Some planners have two rows that can be utilized for patients who require a bi-weekly pill plan. For those who may forget to take their medication, the MedReady 1700-FL comes with an audible alarm and a flashing light that reminds you to take your meds.
