Three words to sum up a British winter: cold, wet, and miserable. Spring is a long way off but by the end of the month, but we should not let this stop us trying to live a healthier lifestyle, including spending more time outside in the fresh air. But how can CareCo winter mobility aids help you get out and about?
Wheelchair cosies protect you from the harsh winter weather. Waterproof and with a wind resistance factor, no matter which wheelchair type you use, we’re confident you’ll be able to go about your daily outside tasks in all but the most extreme of weather conditions. The Splash has real fur lining and the Comfi has fake fur. Both protect the zip area and keep the warmth in, helping you stay comfortable and relaxed.
Powerchair Joystick Cover
The last thing anybody wants when they have chores to do in January is to get the warm, comfortable powerchair wet. Although most models are designed to work outside and in most weather conditions, it’s not pleasant. Your hands will get cold and wet, soaking you through and making you feel grumpy. What’s more, cold can limit dexterity. The powerchair’s joystick is nice to handle when it and you are warm, dry and comfortable. This simple cover in our winter mobility aids range offers superior waterproofing but also in a clear cover so you can see exactly what you’re doing beneath the cover.
January is the month it gets darker the earliest although as the month progresses, the light levels increase noticeably. It’s tempting to stay indoors when you need to go out but getting out during the winter months. You may worry about low light levels and accidents, either running into people or cars running into you. Not all mobility scooters have lights; those designed for the road are legally required to do so but pavement models do not. Protect yourself and others with these useful detachable silicone lights. They draw a low amount of energy and put out a bright light, helping you feel safe and secure with winter mobility aids.
CareCo Scooter Seat Cover
CareCo winter mobility aids to keep you warm and dry are not just for while your mobility device is in use. When taking a powerchair or scooter to the shops, you will need to park up and leave it somewhere. That means leaving it exposed to the elements, even if just for a few minutes. In that time, water can get to your chair leaving you with a cold and wet back and legs. Help protect your device with this impressive cover, designed to help you enjoy your activity during the cold and wet weather of winter. When you’re ready to go again, simply remove and store.
For the all-around, high-quality, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to winter mobility aids, this pack contains everything you need for January. The control panel cover helps you keep warm and dry while in use and the storage cover protects the device while outside and not in use. A crutch/walking stick bag means you may carry a walking aid without worrying about how to handle it when operating your vehicle. That’s not all this amazing winter mobility aid pack contains though. The addition of a security bag and an extra-large storage bag makes this the essential winter collection.
