Find links to websites that sell all sorts of mobility products, as well as some that accept gently used mobility devices. Some of this equipment will be donated to disabled persons both here in the USA and abroad. From walkers, scooters, different types of wheelchairs, to chair lifts, ramps, bath and bed equipment, tables, lighting and adaptive services for vans, they provide ways to make getting around easier. INVACARE even discusses traveling with oxygen [as well as lifts, mattresses, recliners and many other products]!
When routine activities become dangerous or too difficult for the caregiver or for the caree, using some of these devices can make a big difference. So don't let difficulty of movement stop you or our loved one from moving about. The mobility products below can help you safely transport him or her to the bathroom for a relaxing bath, down steps both in and out of your home, into a van, or simply help getting up from a chair. They also have equipment to help your loved one remain as independent as safely possible, such as walkers, crutches, scooters and more.
As the primary caregiver, you may want to check with your care recipient's health insurance provider to see if any of these mobility products are covered under his or her policy when prescribed by a doctor. You may be happily surprised to find that you can make them your mobility solutions!
