Extendable door wedges

Extendable door wedges were a new one to me. I had not seen these until I took some mobility scooters to a prospective customer. Stella met me at the door armed with several of these clever yet simple aids. She wanted to check that she was able to get her new mobility scooter through the communal doors and into her flat.

The beauty of these extendable door wedges is that anyone who has difficulty bending over can use these. They are ideal for elderly people, people with disabilities or pregnant women. This is also good as it helps to prevent falls.

It has a handy wrist strap which prevents the avoids the extendable door wedge from ending up laying on the floor which would defeat the issue!

  • It can be stored on wheelchairs or mobility scooters
  • It is also ideal for pram and pushchair users
  • It’s completely portable
  • Measures 68.5cm in length when fully extended.

This is ideal for users of wheelchairs because it keeps the door open as a wheelchair passes through, and the user is able to reach back and retrieve their wedge. It is completely portable, letting the user keep it in bags or pockets for when out and about.

There is a magnet in the base of the wedge that can assist users with picking up items such as dropped door keys.

The one shown in the image is sold by a company called the Ability Superstore
