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.

Best Wishes

June is Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month

Friday, June 17th, 2016 by morethan

June is Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month run by the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) and this year’scampaign is about sharing shortened stories of real people whose lives have been, or will be, cut short due to MND.  People connect with other people much more than with cold facts and figures although the facts are shocking – MND is fatal and there is no cure!

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.  Unfortunately MND kills a third of people within a year and more than half within 2 years of diagnosis.   It affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time.

So while some things change, every Awareness Month the focus on real people stays the same.  Take a look at Steve, Robert or Jo’s real life stories of living with MND.   Very inspirational and moving.

Please visit the MDNA website for more information and how to get involved in fundraising and use #mnd in your social media posts.  You can even fundraise by taking part in our Silence Speaks campaign – stay silent for a few hours each day and raise money for this worthwhile cause.

More Than Mobility would like to make sure that the journey through Motor Neurone Disease is as comfortable as possible so do take a look at our range of mobility products to help you or a family member.  Our mobility products including offers on mobility scooters, wheelchairs, electric adjustable beds, walking aids and useful daily living aids.

Also don’t forget you can get £50 SAVING when you spend over £500 at More Than Mobility this summer.  Please quote SUMMER50 when ordering online or by telephone.  Visit our website for more information and offers.

Best Wishes

Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month!

Monday, June 1st, 2015 by morethan

It’s June and Motor Neurone Disease Association is holding a special month of awareness.   More Than Mobility are supporters of this charity here in the UK and the Motor Neurone Disease Association and would like us to help raise awareness of this terrible disease.

MND is a life-changing illness and help is available for everyone, whether you are living with MND or close to someone who has been diagnosed. The association says that between 80 and 95 per cent of people with MND will experience communication problems and with that in mind is working hard to ensure they all have their voices heard. The association says that people with MND find it hard to explain the condition to people, including healthcare professionals.

People with MND say that spreading the word can be a powerful way to keep their voice, when their own might be getting fainter.

Facts about MND are:

  • MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.
  • MND affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time.
  • Half of people with MND will die within 14 months of diagnoses.
  • There is no cure.
  • For more information go to: www.mndassociation.org

There are lots of ways to get involved during the month including helping to raise money to support people suffering from this condition. You can simply donate, become a member of the group to show your support, or you can take part in fundraising events.

More Than Mobility would like to make sure that the journey through Motor Neurone Disease is as comfortable as possible so we have special offers on mobility products this month including:

Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month

Thursday, June 19th, 2014 by morethan

June is Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Awareness Month.  Over at the Motor Neurone Disesase Association, they see the value in raising awareness of this disease as it enables them to back more crucial research into the causes of MND, to help bring a cure closer.  Their theme is called VOICE; encouraging people to spread the word for MND sufferers when their voice might be getting fainter. MND affects the motor neurones or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting leading most sufferers to become registered disabled.

Here at More Than Mobility we don’t want any disability to stop you from living independently or to disrupt your lifestyle. We therefore provide a wide range of disability and mobility products to suit your specific needs. So do visit our website and take a look at some of our products on offer today!
