Sleigh Bells Ring: Gifts That Aid With Mobility

Once you have experienced a fall, your chances are doubled for falling again—which is why understanding fall risks, prevention, and costs are crucial to one’s short-term and long-term healthcare. In 2017, we rounded up a list of gifts for older adults that can help prevent falls. This year, we’re highlighting new tools that will assist older adults in moving freely and safely.

Car Cane: Portable Handle

blog imageFor some extra assistance getting in and out of a vehicle, Car Cane provides you with the leverage to lift yourself up and out of any seat. It’s a portable, non-slip handle that instantly hooks into a car’s door latch, and has a built-in flashlight so that you’re able to see where you’re going. After Car Cane is unhooked from the door latch, it can conveniently be stored away in a door or glove box. And don’t worry about weight—Care Cane can hold up to 350 pounds!

Hugo: Quadpod Offset Cane

blog imageThe Quadpod Offset Cane is light and compact, offering balance without bulk. Its height can be adjusted between 28” and 39”, it has a cushioned handle and is designed to conveniently and independently stand on its own. This cane is perfect for someone who is experiencing difficulty with gait and balance.


Stander: Security Pole & Curve Grab Bar

blog imageAccording to the National Institute on Aging, 80 percent of falls take place in the bathroom. While this adjustable Security Pole & Curve Grab Bar can’t prevent falls, it can be extremely helpful for someone who needs help climbing to a standing position. Thanks to its easy-stand hand grips, and easy assembly--no screws or bolts required--this product can be used with 7 to10 foot ceilings, and be removed and replaced anywhere in the house since it is tension mounted.
