If you have limited mobility in your legs, you are most likely using a wheelchair. In addition, you are probably spending a lot of your time in it. It stands to reason then that you would want to be comfortable while being fully supported.
Some wheelchair users might even need this added support for medical reasons to provide the required neck and postural support. Here at Good Life Medical, we offer one of the widest ranges of wheelchair accessories in Australia. We’ll gladly assist you in choosing the best additional items to suit both your health requirements and your lifestyle.
If you are sitting in a wheelchair for a prolonged period, having the correct postural support is essential.
To assist with this, we offer different belts and shoulder straps to make sure that you are both secure and supported in the chair. Chest belts will make sure that your upper body is completely stable and won’t move. Shoulder straps will aid in this and will ensure that you are completely secure while using your wheelchair. If you feel that you need even more support, we also have shoulder harnesses.
These Bodypoint support mechanisms easily strap onto your wheelchair and assist in evenly distributing your body’s weight. In addition, they are easy to adjust to fit your body perfectly.
Even though these belts offer exceptional functionality, they are also extremely comfortable.
Spending hours in your wheelchair can place a tremendous amount of strain on your spine, which could impact other parts of your body like your neck and shoulders.
Our wheelchair backrests offer optimum support for your back and spine. We have quite a comprehensive range available, all of which provide exceptional comfort while relieving pressure caused by prolonged sitting.
By stocking reliable brands such as Jay and Varilite, you can rest assured that you will be purchasing products that are expertly made to deliver results. You can choose from several models and options which target specific areas, such as lower or mid back.
Some of these backrests also improve your sitting tolerance while increasing your actual stability in the wheelchair. In this way, these wheelchairs provide both immediate relief and prolonged support and health benefits.
Sitting down for hours on end can become uncomfortable very quickly. It can also place an immense amount of pressure on your lower body. Your wheelchair seat may not provide you with the adequate support that you need for your body to endure or avoid this discomfort.
We suggest using wheelchair cushions for pressure relief. Here at Good Life Medical, we offer a range of options, including Jay- and Varilite cushions.
