Reachers and lifters help make what was out of reach, close at hand. Reachers pick up small items that have fallen and this helps when bending over is difficult. Reachers can also grab an item off the shelf without having to get the step stool. Lifters make moving your leg or foot possible, get in and out of a wheelchair, or check for foot health. The Duro-Med lightweight aluminum reacher has a magnetic tip. The TrashStik reacher from Reid Industries allows users to pick up objects without bending over. It picks up to 5 pounds and has an anodized aluminum shaft that is both durable and rust-proof.
Express Medical Supply carries more mobility aids. The door knob extender from Duro-Med converts standard doorknobs into having lever-opening action. It can be mounted for left or right hand positioning and complete access to the keyhole and lock is still available. Stander manufactures curve grab bars, a handybar assist aid and a car caddie. The security pole is tension-mounted from the floor to the ceiling and allows users to sit down and stand up easier. The handybar assist aid makes getting out of a vehicle easier with an ergonomic rubber grip that's ready to use in seconds. The car caddie is made of nylon and installs in just seconds.
