Chair Yoga: Health and Relaxation at the Same Time

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017 by morethan

Chair Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. It is in the process of being recognised formally as a type of yoga distinct from other traditional types.

Usually someone taking part in chair yoga is unable to participate in a traditional yoga class due to the effects of aging or disabilities. However Chair Yoga is a great practise for everyone, as it deepens flexibility and strengthens personal body awareness. Chair yoga classes are sometimes made available at senior fitness centres, retirement facilities, and adult day care centres.

In addition to a good stretch, chair yoga participants can also enjoy other health benefits of yoga; including improved muscle tone, better breathing habits, reduction of stress, better sleep and a sense of well-being.

Alternatively if you would prefer to exercise in the comfort of our own home whilst watching TV or reading the paper; our More Than Mobility website also sells a pedal exerciser.  This can assist in restoring muscle strength, circulation, co-ordination and fitness.   Price:  £34.99 ex VAT

Mobility Products For Motor Neurone Disease Month

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017 by morethan

This June is Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month (MNDA) and here at More Than Mobility we like to support the MNDA in raising awareness for this campaign.  We all remember the Ice Bucket Challenge from a few years ago but this year’s campaign is called #MyEyesSay – If your eyes were all you could move, what would you say with them?

MNDA also want you to get involved by taking a ‘selfie’ and sharing your message on what your eyes say. This will then become part of a collage on the #MyEyesSay website.

If you know or care for somebody with this disease we have a huge range of mobility products on our website that are designed for MND sufferers:

Mobility Scooters

Starting from as little as £550 our range features affordable mobility scooters from the industry’s leading manufacturers.  Portable, Pavement and 8mph Road Legal Mobility Scooters.

Power chairs

Our electric wheelchairs and powerchairs come in varying models and specifications. Whether you need a basic electric wheelchair, such as the compact Shoprider Vienna model, or you are looking for something more robust, like the Pride Quantum powerchair; we are sure to have the right electric wheelchair for you.

Electric Adjustable Beds

Electric adjustable beds are ideal for those who like to sit up in bed to read, or to recline in bed and watch television or a film. Sometimes it is just great to recline in bed with your feet up, and our range of adjustable electric beds provides the perfect opportunity to find your ideal relax and sleep position.

Rise and Recline Chairs

We have an incredible selection of rise and reclining chairs on offer from single motor to dual motor in a choice of fabrics and styles to suit your specific needs. No matter what type of recliner chair you are looking for; More Than Mobility is sure to have an electric riser recliner chair to suit your needs.

Bathing

For many with mobility issues, it can be difficult to have a bath or shower efficiently. A lot of people find it awkward getting in and out of their bath or shower safely, particularly when they have no one around to help them. Here at More Than Mobility we offer a vast array of bath aids for the elderly and disability bathing aids that will help you enjoy bathing independently again, with both comfort and ease.

Please visit our mobility product website for these and the other products that we have available.
