Electric Toothbrushes are a great way to improve comfort and independence for oral care and this style is incredibly light weight and easy to handle for most users.
Phone lanyards are a great way to improve safety and accessibility of your phone on the go and this design includes some excellent features.
This ergonomically designed neck pillow provides a chin support option. I love these as an option for individuals who sleep sitting up in their wheelchairs or recliners frequently!
Stick-on Ice Packs
These stick-on ice packs are reusable and super convenient for those pinpoint aches and pains. Makes a great stocking stuffer.
You all know how much I love a multi-positional wedge, and this comes with the added cervical and lumbar pillow.
Add-on Traction Cleats
Staying active and fall-free in the winter months can be a challenge! I love Yaktrax for walking on snow and ice. Combine with a set of walking sticks and you can keep your walking routine going through the colder months without sacrificing safety!
Gel Seat Cushion
Keeping the comfort theme going with this gel, honeycomb (and affordable) seat cushion for reducing pressure on the back side!
Electric kettles are an awesome kitchen tool to improve safety for individuals with decreased memory and coordination issues. This model is affordable, comes with auto shut-off and boil-over protection.
