Women who look after their body, especially by taking regular exercise and watching their weight, will stay healthy and feel younger for longer. The dieting aids, skin and hair care products, exercise products and body monitors in our range are all products which will help women to stay in control and keep their body looking good.
Sometimes extra help is required when there is a problem, so look to our range of special body supports for sprains and aching joints or to a TENS machine for pain relief during pregnancy. Sensory loss can also be a problem but there is no need to let sight and hearing difficulties affect the quality of life when a hearing aid or magnifier can offer the solution.
For men of all ages today it is easy to slip into a sedentary lifestyle, then become overweight and more susceptible to health issues. It does not need to be this way with our range of exercise products, many of which can be used at home or in the office when time is short and it is not possible to get outside. And to stay looking good, check out our dieting and body care products which can help keep the weight under control and the skin in good condition.
Men who want to keep a regular watch on the state of their health should consider a body monitor to check blood pressure, cholesterol level or other important measures of bodily health. In the event of problems, perhaps a sports injury or muscle sprain, a body support or TENS pain relief machine may provide the answer.
As men and women age, it is important to keep both the mind and the body in trim. To alleviate potential problems, staying active can be a great help, for example by gentle exercise or pursuing a hobby such as gardening. These are just some of the activities made easier by the products in our range.
An ageing body will often experience sensory loss, at which time sight and hearing aids can alleviate the problem. Finding a toilet in time may also become an issue, so look through our wide range of snug fitting, highly absorbent products that allow the user to retain their dignity comfortably and discreetly. If pain is involved, perhaps from arthritis or an aching joint, a special body support or TENS machine could provide a valuable source of relief.
Dementia and memory loss are a growing issue with advancing years, so our specialist reminiscence products can provide the stimulus to help a person stay alert and re-connect with their past.
With the right aids and equipment many of the everyday actions that most of us take for granted can be made easier; for example, standing up or getting out of bed, eating, drinking or dressing. And the use of practical, purpose designed bathroom and toilet products is a common sense measure, not just for reasons of hygiene but also to maintain personal dignity.
Many people, even when they grow older or have a disability, still want to retain their independence and live alone. Our assistive technology products, such as motion or fall detectors, activity monitoring systems and outdoor tracking systems can all help them to stay in their own home and provide reassurance that help is at hand in the case of problems.
We offer an extensive range of stylish yet practical mobility aids to help the user stay active and independent. Older people in particular and those with a disability will enjoy the freedom offered and appreciate the ability to move around comfortably, indoors and out, with a reduced risk of falls.
The range contains a wide choice; for example, height adjustable walking sticks, lightweight walking frames and easy to manoeuvre rollators with a flip up seat that allows the user to sit comfortably. We also offer a selection of the most popular attendant controlled or self propelled wheelchairs and easy to operate mobility scooters with the focus on comfort, style, performance and reliability.
See also our range of ramps, lifting hoists and transfer aids to facilitate access and re-positioning.
Our wide range of purpose designed products can improve the quality of life and prolong independence for people with dementia, whether in residential care, a nursing home, hospital or their own homes.
Specialist solutions include high visibility signs to help people orientate themselves and find their way more easily to all the most important locations within a home, particularly the toilet, without feelings of stress. In a care home setting, aiding room recognition and personalising the space outside the bedroom are important, so we offer door decals in a range of different colours and memory boxes to fit on the wall outside the door. To keep the mind active and help slow down memory loss, reminiscence cards allow older people to recall happy memories.
Physical activity and exercise can help everyone to stay fit and healthy, so we have products ideal for use around the home, in the office or wherever there’s room to set them up. For those who wish to monitor their health more closely, we can also supply products which let them check their own body composition, cholesterol levels and blood pressure. For aches, pains and sprains, there are body supports, dressings and bandages and pain relieving TENS machines.
The range extends to medical and diagnostic products for use in hospitals and other healthcare settings. These include disposable items such as aprons and gloves, sterile packs, suction tubing, syringes and needles, as well as pressure care products to reduce the risk of bed sores.
Incontinence is a common problem which can be extremely stressful, as well as a source of anxiety for millions of people, particularly the over 60s. However, living life without embarrassment is still possible thanks to the snug fitting, highly absorbent, continence management products now available for men and women. Whether the preference is for a completely disposable pad or a washable all-in-one, there’s a wide range to choose from. Skin care and moisturising creams are also available to cleanse and protect the skin.
Protective bedding and seating pads provide comfort and peace of mind for those who are confined to bed or less able to reach the toilet independently.
