Under the Healthy Aging Advice for Seniors banner I’ve just added an article on How Older Adults Can Reduce the Risk of Falls.
The article outlines a list of things older people can do for themselves and things that their loved ones can do for them to help them prevent falls in the home and mitigate the effects of any falls that do happen.
This article is a guest submission by Christian Worstell, a health and lifestyle writer living in Raleigh, NC.
Wheelchair and scooter batteries are designed to last for years with proper care and maintenance. They are the most common cause of service calls and can cause all kinds of weird symptoms if not working properly.
I’ve recently been helping a lady work out a battery issue with her scooter and felt that the information I’ve been giving her might be of benefit to the readers of MobilityBasics.ca
I was contacted last week from a lady wanting information about the width of a doorway that is needed for a wheelchair to pass through easily. Although this seems like it should have a simple answer, it doesn’t.
After writing a rather long and complicated response by email, I thought it should be a topic that I should go into with more depth on the website.
So, I’ve added a page in the Articles section of the Mobilitybasics.ca website about wheelchair and doorway widths for those who are interested.
I’m currently in the progress of updating the accessories section of the wheelchair seating area of the website. The original seating accessories page had very few products mentioned and not much information about what is there.
Proper seating requires the best possible pelvis position and stability. The Hip Supports and Seat Options page has a number of products and information on how positioning and stability can be achieved using aftermarket products.
