People who frequently use a wheelchair or a rollator may have some challenges using them for a prolonged time. At Copper Star Home Medical, we have many different accessories to help you feel more comfortable or to make it easier for you to travel more and participate in your favorite activities.
Manual Mobility Accessories
Adding accessories to your rollator or wheelchair can make it easier to carry what you need when shopping or completing chores around the house. For example, people who use Triumph Mobility rollators may like the Motion Premium Shopping Bag, which has a thick strap for security and a flap to close over the bag, preventing water spillage or even rain. It’s also durable enough to hold a laptop or books for those who use their rollator to get around the workplace or school campus.
Cup holders for a water bottle or travel coffee cup come in various sizes for a snug fit that reduces spills. You can even add one on each side of your wheelchair! We especially like the swivel cup holders by manufacturers such as Nova, as they make it easier for users to keep the cup out of the way (and thus prevent it from spilling on themselves) when not in use, and the smooth movements make it easier to grab a drink when thirsty. Many people also like folding shopping baskets that can attach to the mobility device, some of which are wire and can be used for shopping or holding cleaning supplies while doing chores.
Finally, don’t forget the Nova flashlight holder, helping you see in dimmer light to avoid falls and gives you a sense of security and peace.
Wheelchair Cushions and Comfort
Mobility aid accessories can also help you move more efficiently and comfortably, such as the cushioned Nova Fleece Arm Cover, which can be adjusted to fit any number of wheelchairs, knee rollers, and rollers. The Triumph Mobility back support can help using a rollator more comfortably, giving you vital lumbar support and reducing the painful feeling of the harder metal pieces pressing into your back or sides.
The Nova Sitzback cushion is engineered to give support around the pelvic bone and reduce the pressure on the sitz-bone area, which is especially beneficial for women. The Nova Convoluted comfort rings provide comfort and support to those with bowel complaints. Using a fleece-covered back and seat cushion, such as the Nova Convoluted model, can make a wheelchair more comfortable, plus help you stay warmer in the winter or buildings with cold temperatures. Each piece is ergonomically crafted for greater comfort and support.
