When my mobility started to become more and more limited, I thought that was just it for certain things. That I wouldn’t be able to do those things again. I wouldn’t be able to pour myself a coffee anymore, I might have to change the bathroom to a wet room, someone else will have to feed the cats. I didn’t know that there were so many incredible products out there to help people like me, and I didn’t realise how easy and affordable some of them were to buy. When I first saw Ability Superstore, I was so surprised by how many things their website actually stocks. They pretty much have a solution for everything. Can’t dry your hair? Hair dryer stand. Can’t pour hot drinks? Kettle tippers.
Ability Superstore have everything for daily living, mobility aids, and they even have a pet section which really surprised me as again it’s not something I had thought existed. The No Bend Pet Bowl really is amazing. Even if you have minor back problems, I cannot recommend one enough. It makes feeding your fur babies so much easier and safer for you! You can even pop it in the dishwasher. It’s £14.99 and comes in a few colours.
Everything on their website could make the world of difference to someone disabled, I’ve found so many things that would make living alone actually something I could think about. I have been trying out a few other things, like the HandiScoop at £19.99. I have two indoor kittens and they make a lot of mess, sometimes I’ve had to bend down and I couldn’t leave it for someone else. Everyone knows cats like clean litter boxes, and you don’t want them to do their business on the floor or carpets. The HandiScoop means that you can grab anything without bending down. You can also add a bag to the head to bag up anything.
I’m not getting out much at the minute so I thought a Pedal Exerciser Digital Display under my office desk would be a great way to help my mobility. At just £25.98 it’s such an inexpensive thing to help make sure I keep the circulation in my legs. I’ve always loved riding bikes and peddling but I haven’t done anything in years now. It may be a small piece of equipment but you can still change the level of resistance, and a digital display so that you can monitor how much you’re doing. This is a great way to take small steps so you don’t over do anything or hurt yourself. It’s a little difficult on a moveable chair, but if you have a solid chair somewhere at home, then I’d recommend sitting on that to use it instead.
Finally, I couldn’t resist asking for a bottle of Gel Biofreeze in Pump Action Dispenser! I know so many people who turn to Biofreeze for quick pain relief and I really could not be without it. I’ve never actually come across a pump bottle, and I find this SO much easier to use. Everyone knows about Biofreeze by now and it’s honestly helped me on some of my worst days, including my back spasms so I will always have bottles around the house. This big 16oz. bottle is £22.99 and will last a very long time. I’ve also been using it to fill up small bottles around the house!
Ability Superstore is a website that I am recommending to everyone, I’ll definitely be buying from it in the future!
