A device that measures one’s hand grasp strength. This tool assesses one’s progress through hand rehabilitation following injury or illness such as stroke and deconditioning. Commonly found in rehab centers that attempt to retrain weakened muscles.
A rollator walker with three wheels made to boost one’s endurance for ambulation. There is no seat for resting and the small base of support makes it less stable compared to other walkers. However it houses a sizable amount of storage, making it ideal for grocery shopping.
An accessory that attaches to a walker to hold a cup and/or cane. Great for people that sometimes need to access areas where only a cane cannot be used ie. through narrow doorways. Also helps to hold one’s beverage, leaving one’s hands free to use the walker or brace oneself against a fall.
An attachment that converts a single point cane into a large base cane. This offers increased balance and support as the large base is slightly more stable. Great for seniors and people with some mobility difficulty or slight balance impairment.
Joint protection of a weak or paralysed arm and hand is important for stroke survivors. The use of a sling brings the arm and hand closer to one’s body and prevents it from striking objects within the environment and further injuring it.
Cushions used on wheelchairs with a sling seat base have a hammocking effect that lowers their effectiveness and decreases pressure distribution. A rigidizer is inserted underneath the cushion to increase stability and provide a firm base of support to reduce hammocking.
