Mobility Products for Winter Nights

This entry was posted in General January 21, 2021

As the crisp mornings and cold winter nights are fully upon us now, we start to think of ways to keep us warm and healthy both mentally and physically.

It is extremely important for our health to stay warm during the colder weather. Simple solutions like putting an extra jumper on in the morning, a heated blanket on the sofa or even some warm wool socks can help you stay well this Winter.

For those of you who aren’t suited to the colder climate, whether it’s down to personal preference or an underlying condition – staying warm isn’t easy.  We thought now was the perfect time to round up some of our favourite products that can keep you warm.

Starting off simple we have our Heated Lap Blanket. Designed with a Fleece touch material and dual temperature setting, the heated lap blanket allows you to choose the warming temperature you desire. It is perfect to be used whilst sitting in the lounge, or can be used in bed or in the car with the car adapter included. It is ideal to be used to improve circulation, alleviate muscle pain and rebuild injured tissue.

If you are looking to venture out for some fresh air during the cooler temperatures, then our Tiller Covers are ideal if you are using a mobility scooter. Not only do they protect your Scooter controls from the weather by keeping them dry, but they also keep your hands warm too. Our Tiller covers are great for mobility scooter users.

Another popular Mobility Scooter accessory for the cooler weather is our Scooter Canopy. This canopy is designed for the majority of mobility scooters, and works by covering the whole scooter, blocking out any cool winds or rain from the scooter user. If you own a mobility scooter then this canopy is a great buy for keeping you warm over the next coming months.

If you are looking to venture outside over the coming months, but possibly on a wheelchair, then our Hand Muff is ideal for keeping your hands warm. It features a fleece lining effect and elasticated cuffs to keep the heat in and the cold out, as well as a showerproof material on the outside to withstand all conditions.

A slightly alternative product that can be beneficial for mental health throughout the colder months is our SAD light therapy lamp. This lamp is designed to ease the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) which is a form of depression triggered by long nights and short days. The lamp works by supplementing your daily intake of light in order to achieve the recommended dose of lumens, through its LED panel and dimming features. This product is highly important for those who spend the majority of the time indoors without sufficient daylight.

All of our suggested products are available to order for home delivery on our website, or alternatively pop into your local Ableworld store or give us a call.

As a caring Mobility Retailer, we hope our product suggestions help you to stay warm over the next few cold months. Make sure you take care of yourself, stock up on warm drinks, stay active and wrap up warm.

All of our stores are fully open and our friendly customer service team are on the end of the telephone to help also- simply call us on Freephone 0800 096 5440.

Take care

Hidden Disabililties Sunflower

This entry was posted in General January 18, 2021

At Ableworld we are delighted to announce that we have recently become a Member of the Hidden Disabilities Scheme. As a caring mobility retailer, we felt it was important to recognise the well-known Sunflower and work with this wonderful Charity to spread awareness across the UK.

Not all disabilities are visible – some are hidden and not immediately obvious, such as learning difficulties, mental health as well as mobility, speech, visual or hearing impairments. Living with a hidden disability can make daily life more demanding for many people, but it can be difficult for others to identify, acknowledge or understand the challenges you face. This is why it’s important we recognise the sunflower in order to help those choosing to wear it.

They affect each person in different ways and can be painful and exhausting. Without visible evidence of the hidden disability, it is frequently difficult for others to acknowledge the challenges faced and as a consequence, sympathy and understanding can often be ignored.

Wearing the Sunflower discreetly indicates to people that the wearer may need additional support, help or a little more time. For many, wearing the lanyard can help those feel more comfortable when leaving home every day.

At Ableworld we are now suppling Hidden Disability Lanyards and cards in selected Ableworld stores across the UK. Simply ask us in store for further details and our friendly team will be sure to help.

We are proud to be able to support the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme, and recognise the important work that this charity does.

Take care and we hope to see you in store soon.
