Aids for daily living 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, more. Express Medical Supply carries a variety of tools that help people safely increase their independence.
Bathroom aids can be used to make showering and using the toilet independently easier. Suppositories like Magic Bullets and Fleet enemas are both used to maintain healthy bowel movements. Self-wipe toilet aids allow you to clean up without the help of a caregiver. We also have bowel stimulators to help decrease constipation. Being able to independently use the bathroom is important which is why Express Medical Supply carries a line of products to help maintain your bowel health. Shower chairs make it easier to bathe without risking falls. Some shower chairs have commode openings and can be used inside the shower or bathtub. 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. There are commodes that can be used as a shower chair and vice versa. 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, car, or shower chair. 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 people gain more independence at meal time. Two handled mugs and weighted utensils 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, put on shoes, and put on shirts. Long handled shoe horns make it easy to put on shoes without having to bend over or lift your foot up.
