We know that Willaid isn’t exactly a Christmas shopping destination, but you’d be surprised at the really helpful gift ideas you’ll find in our shop. Here are some great ideas for the people you love most.
Got an old friend who’s having trouble gripping a can opener, or opening a jar or twisting off a bottle top? OneTouch has a range of openers to make little things easier for anyone with tired or arthritic hands. Click here to see the full range.
Give Dad the gift of freedom.
If a parent or friend has recently lost their driving licence consider giving them the gift of independence. Yes, a mobility scooter is expensive, but if the whole family works together it just might be affordable. And the freedom it brings will be priceless!
Another great idea if the family wants to pool together is an electric lift or recliner chair. Arthritic hips and knees and the general wear and tear of aging can make rising from a chair difficult. An electric lift chair has a powerful lifting mechanism that lifts the entire chair up from the base, so you gently rise to a standing position with full body support. Plus of course, these chairs are just plain comfortable! Click here to find our products available.
If you’re looking for a less expensive way to give someone a little comfort, we have a range of back support products to make sitting more comfortable – whether it’s in your car, bed, office or wheelchair. Obus Form Cushions have a flexible, contoured ergonomic design to provide relief for those with lower back pain. More information available here.
A great comfort idea for anyone who spends most of their time sitting is a Roho Mosaic Cushion. This adjustable cushion has interconnected air cells that provide a comfortable and stable sitting environment and prevent pressure sores. Have a look at our range of cushions here.
Tipping Kettle: Does Mum have trouble lifting a full kettle? The Uccello Kettle is ergonomically designed to allow her to pour steaming hot water by gently tipping the kettle. No undue pressure or lifting is required. Click here for specifications.
Handybar Vehicle Transfer Support Handle: The Handy bar inserts into the U-shaped striker plate on your vehicle door frame. This U-shaped striker plate is one of the strongest parts of the vehicle and is designed to keep your vehicle door closed in the event of a side-impact collision. The Handybar 3 in 1 Car Aid uses this strong-point on your vehicle as a simple insertion point that creates an instant, easy to operate “support arm” for exiting the vehicle. There is a striker on each of the vehicle’s door pillars allowing the Handy bar® to be used on both driver and passenger side-doors. For more information click here
Shower Chair: The shower is so much safer and easier to navigate with a shower chair. We might mention here that we sell plenty of these chairs to women who want to sit while shaving their legs. So this is a pretty handy gift for almost any age group….but particularly appropriate for people who have difficulty standing for long periods of time or risk slipping in a wet bathtub or shower stall.
Raven Threshold Ramp: This ramp is designed for wheelchair access, but proves incredibly handy for anyone having a little difficulty in navigating steps. The Raven Threshold Ramp reduces the chance of tripping on a doorstep.
