Daily living aids are medical supplies that help a person with limited mobility accomplish everyday tasks around the home or workplace. Some examples of these include shower chairs, two handled cups, transfer boards, and more. Express Medical Supply carries a variety of tools to help people safely increase their independence.
Bathroom aids make it easier to shower and use the toilet independently. Products like Magic Bullet suppositories and Fleet enemas help produce healthy bowel movements. We also have bowel stimulators to relieve constipation. Shower chairs make it easier to bathe without risking falls. Some shower chairs have commode openings for people with incontinence. Shower chairs are available with and without backs depending on your needs. Commodes are equipped with removable buckets and commode opening seats so they can be used bedside if transferring to a toilet is difficult. You will need to measure your bathroom shower to make sure the shower chair or commode will fit in the area it will be used.
Mobility aids are medical supplies that help a person move across a room, transfer from their wheelchair to their bed or car. Rollators and walkers can be used to help maintain balance while walking and to make it easier to stand up from a seated position. Tub transfer benches help you move from your wheelchair to the inside of a bathtub without having to step up and into a tub. Tubs and showers can be wet and slick, but tub transfer benches help you avoid dangerous falls. Gait belts are worn around the waist to help a care giver hold onto a patient to help the patient walk and to help guide them if they start to slip or fall. Transfer boards come in a wide variety of sizes to help make transfers easier and safer.
Eating and drinking aids help increase independence at meal time. Products like two handled mugs provide more control for people with dexterity problems. Weighted utensils help people with hand tremors eat without help by helping them balance their spoon or fork. Therafin makes weighted utensil sets as well as hardcoated spoons to help stop damage to teeth from biting down or hitting teeth.
Dressing aids are designed to help button buttons and put on shoes and shirts. Long handled shoe horns make it easy to put on shoes without having to bend over or lift your foot up.
