Among some of the features that make this line of chairs unique are casters to enable easier moving of the chairs, cup holders and trays on two models for the convenience of the user, genuine leather upholstery, vertical elevation and removable arms for transfers to and from beds and incontinent proof upholstery.

This past week I’ve been working on making the MobilityBasics website an encrypted website. Although we do not collect any information from our visitors, do not sell any products and don’t have any payment gateways there are a few good reasons for encrypting the site for the peace of mind of our visitors.
Many websites these days are fully encrypting their sites in an effort to make the web more secure and Google will be rewarding them, in the future, by ranking them higher than non-encrypted sites. I believe full encryption is a good idea for all sites and haven’t waited for it to become the norm before encrypting Mobilitybasics.ca. It’s good for you and it’s good for me. Continue reading
I’ve recently been looking at ways that I can improve the site for my visitors and improve the quality of the site. Enabling website compression is the first of these updates.
MobilityBasics website is now being compressed using gzip. Gzip for those who don’t know, or possibly care, is a compression system used to compress files including web pages and graphics.
I’m no expert in this but as I understand it when you try to access the Mobilitybasics website now your device will be notified that the site is available in a compressed form. If your device is capable of accessing a compressed web page it will display the compressed version. If you device cannot access a compressed page the original uncompressed page will be displayed on your device.
They can be set up for right-handed or left-handed use but must only be installed in vehicles with automatic transmissions and power steering.

I’ve just updated the turning seat section of Mobilitybasics.ca with information on a couple of products from a Canadian company, Adapt Solutions.
The first product is for their XL-Base. The Xl-Base converts a conventional van seat into a turning seat that will turn and lower users out of the van and features a manual backup system in case of lose of power or malfunction.
The XL-Base reuses the original van seat and mounting holes so that no damage or modifications are done to the van that will affect the resale value of the van.
This turning seat system can be mounted in either the front or mid passenger position of most of todays popular minivans.

The second product is the XL-Seat which is a transfer device that aids wheelchair users in accessing and exiting the front seats of vans, pickup trucks, SUVs and some crossovers.
The XL-Set folds up between the seat and the door when not in use and the transfer board part of it is removable for easier access by people who don’t need a transfer device.
The XL-Seat is mounted using existing the vehicle seat mounting system and does not damage or modify the vehicle in any permanent way.
I’ve added the Evacuscape Evacuation Chair to the New and Unique Products section of the MobilityBasics.ca website.
The Evacuscape rescue chair is a lightweight wheeled chair that caregivers and emergency workers can use to transport mobility impaired people down staircases in the case of an emergency where the elevators can not be used.
The use of an evacuation chair reduces the chances of injury for both the user and those assisting in their evacuation.
Today I posted an article in the New and Unique Equipment section of the website on the Volaris rollator walker. I can’t think of a walker option or feature that the manufacturer hasn’t covered with this group of five models.
