Walkers are the most common ambulatory aid. And rollators, for those who have the strength and dexterity to control them, are also very popular. We like the rollator models that allow for independent adjustment of the seat height and the handle height. We also stock quad canes, straight canes, hemi walkers, crutches and crutch alternatives (knee walker and knee crutch).
The bathroom is often considered to be the most dangerous room in the house. Wet shiny surfaces and one foot transitions are a dangerous combination. But there are many products available to keep you safe without compromising your standards of hygiene. Bath seating products, a hand held shower, grab bars, raised toilet seats, rolling shower chairs and other products are all available to be delivered and installed by our courteous field representatives.
Getting the right size lift chair is very important. If it is too big, there will be an unsupported lumbar area, and over time it will become very uncomfortable. Another concern with chairs that are too big is that the user's feet will not be firmly planted on the floor as the chair lifts to a standing position. The staff at Independence can help you choose just the right size lift chair, and show you all of the colors, fabrics and other options that are now available.
A variety of wheelchairs is always available. Call on us for transport wheelchairs (less than twenty pounds), conventional wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs and scooters, as well as reclining wheelchairs, tilt in space, and other specialty configurations. A variety of accessories is also available, such as cushions, positioning devices, ramps and carriers.
