Gardening Mobility Products

Now that Spring has hopefully finally arrived; many of you will be thinking about getting out into the garden in time to plant bulbs and flowers for the Summer.  If so then do take a look at some of our useful gardening tools:

  • Easi Grip Gardening Tools – these gardening tools are designed to minimise stress on the wrist so that the user can continue to work in the garden with less pain.   The angled handle ensures that the wrist is kept in a natural position and a non slip grip provides great comfort and control.  Fork, Cultivator and Trowel.
  • Garden Kneeler – getting up and down to those garden chores can be quite a strain on both the back and knees, especially in wet weather.   And for those jobs where you need a little height – just turn the Kneeler over for a comfy seat or handy step.

Finally take a look at the British Chiropractic Association handy hints for making the most of your garden without putting a strain on your back…
