Disabled aids that look attractive

Mobility and daily living aids people will WANT to use !

It is tough enough being disabled or elderly without mobility and daily  living aids looking so sterile.

Who wants their home to look like an extension of a hospital or care home ? Would you chose to have style-less items surrounding you when you need them if you had the option not to ? Probably not, and I am excited to share a business with you that offers stylish and practical alternatives. If you are looking for an alternative to the common place, run of the mill “mentally demoralising” aids, look no further.

Designed to enable is run by a husband and wife team. Katherine was left paraplegic as a result of a riding accident in her early 30’s and was frustrated at the lack of style and design choices in the disabled aids she needed to use to manage her new challenges of daily living. Why should a young woman have to wear mens’ cycle gloves when self-wheeling her wheelchair ? Why should the grab rail in their bathroom look like it had followed her home from hospital ?

Katherine and her husband set about sourcing items that although highly practical disabled aids that also looked attractive. One of my favourites is the waterproof draw sheet for the bed.

Not a horrible white plastic sheet in sight, These are checked and look soft and non-clinical whilst maintaining protection.

The walking sticks are stylish and with more and more elderly and disabled people wanting to maintain their “image” (as we all do) they are bound to be a hit.
