Arthritis Care Week & Mobility Products To Help

Thursday, May 11th, 2017 by morethan

This week we are supporting Arthritis Care Week. Arthritis Care is asking people to Wake up to Arthritis, to:

  • Raise awareness of the seriousness of arthritis
  • Remove the barriers that get in the way of people’s lives
  • Ensure that people living with arthritis know we’re here to help

Please visit the Arthritis Care Week website for information and support.

Medications can ease arthritis pain, but you may be wondering if there are other options. Still, here at More Than Mobility we stock a range of mobility products designed for arthritis patients. They can complement arthritis pain medication that your doctor has prescribed:

Beat pain with heat

Heat is helpful when placed on any area of the body that is sore. Heat increases blood flow to the area of discomfort, which can decrease muscle pain.   Take a look at our Hot Wheater Bottle for only £12.99!

Workout equipment

Ironically, one of the best things you can do to help joint issues is to exercise. While it’s never a good idea to push yourselfthrough joint pain, a regular workout routine can help relieve long-term arthritis symptoms.  Take a look at our Pedal Exerciser for only £34.99!

Walking aids

There’s no questioning the fact that exercise helps alleviate and prevent arthritis pain. If you’re at the point where basic mobility is painful on your own, then it might be worth considering a walking aid.

Other mobility products suitable for arthritis sufferers include:

  • Good Grips Cutlery – soft comfortable non-slip handles
  • Easi-Grip Gardening Tools – designed to minimise stress on wrist and non-slip offering greater comfort and control
  • HandSteady – drinking cup that stays upright but tilts easily
  • Ucello Power Pour Kettle – delivers hot water safely and steadily
  • One Touch Can Opener – opens cans of all types with just one push of a button
  • Aluminium Reacher – allows the user to pick up or move items that would otherwise be out of reach
  • Plug Tugs- makes removing fiddly plugs less of a hassle and makes using electrical sockets much easier
  • Seat Belt Reacher convenient handle to help those who struggle to reach and grab their seat belt.
  • HandyBar - helps with getting in and out of the car
  • Magnetic Shirt – men’s magnetic shirt with hidden magnets instead of buttons

Please visit our website for the full range of mobility products we stock we have everything from Mobility Scooters to Wheelchairs, Adjustable Beds to Stair Lifts and Rise and Recline Chairs to Daily Living Aids.

Arthritis Care Week: 14th – 21st May

Friday, May 20th, 2016 by morethan

A recent UK wide survey conducted by Arthritis Care has revealed that people are enduring years of pain before seeking help for arthritis. It showed that 16% waited over one year while 28% waited over two years before taking action.
Over half (52%) of those who delayed did so because it didn’t occur to them it could be arthritis, 28% thought it was arthritis but that nothing could be done, while 22% didn’t think that arthritis affected people of their age.

Arthritis Care CEO Judi Rhys said “Arthritis is an overlooked and underestimated condition, the pain it causes can be excruciating and its impact is often life changing. People are needlessly enduring years of pain and fatigue, giving up the things they love and that give their life meaning and purpose.  Early recognition of the symptoms and diagnosis can immediately improve people’s lives and prevent more serious health problems later on.  People need to be able to recognise the symptoms, know how to manage it and be supported to enjoy an active, healthy and independent life.”

This week is Arthritis Care Week (#arthritismatters) where we are encouraging people who suffer with arthritis to talk about what it’s like to live with arthritis.
