Disability Equipment Review
Disability equipment is vital for disabled people, carers and support staff. Indeed, we review items that are made to help people with significant and permanent mobility impairment, to live more independently and with dignity.
I broke my neck and became a quadriplegic in 1991. However, after leaving Princess Alexandra Hospital I had to work out what equipment I needed to live in the community. As a result, most of the information I came across was from other people with disabilities. Consequently, this page contains information and reviews that may help others making the transition today.
I am well positioned to provide an impartial review of disability equipment. Hence, you can also trust my reviews because I don’t take money from any company or corporation for my reviews. Indeed I am completely independent.
Bath and Bed Disability Equipment Review
Some of the disability equipment most important for a person with a disability, especially one with paralysis, include a hoist and a shower chair. So below are reviews of my preferred equipment.
I first came across this disability equipment after consulting with specialist Occupational Therapist (OT) with experience in spinal injuries. So if you have access to an OT, I would encourage you to use him or her to find out just what is available in your jurisdiction.
Some of us cannot transfer in and out of a wheelchair. So for us, a wheelchair car with ramp access is important.
Other Disability Aids
Here we include items that are more of a medical nature, that help many people with disabilities to make it through the day in good condition. At least they have helped me over the years.
