Independent Living Aids (All Products)

ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY (AT) INDEPENDENT LIVING The term ‘assistive technology’ can be defined as “any device or system that allows an individual to perform a task that they would otherwise be unable to do, or increases the ease and safety with which the task can be performed.” (Royal Commission on Long Term Care 1999). This includes a wide range of devices from simple “low tech” items such as calendar clocks, memory aids, remote controls for switching lights on/off to more “high tech” items which, can provide and remotely relay alarms, data or information gained from Telecare sensors to distant carers or Local Authority community monitoring services. Medpage supply an extensive range of Independent Living Aids (Handy Gadgets) to help people live more independently and remain in their homes for as long as possible. For people recovering from a Stroke, Living with MS, (multiple sclerosis) Parkinson’s disease, or similar debilitating conditions, daily living presents very difficult challenges for the individual and their family. It is very common for elderly couples to be separated in their “Golden Years” either by hospitalisation or the need for specialist care not available at home. Medpage products can and do help.
