Important Mechanics

  • A walker without wheels has to be lifted and placed in front in order to move forward and walker with wheels needs to be pushed forward.
  • Make sure all four wheels are on the ground before your place your weight on it.
  • Always look ahead when walking and not at your feet.
  • Adjust the walker to your height and ensure handles are on level with your hips and slightly bend elbows when holding the handles.

Precautionary steps

  • Ensure your house is fall proof by making necessary changes to prevent falls.
  • Clear messy litter and always ensure floors are clean and dry.
  • To begin walking use the leg you had surgery or injured.
  • Use the good leg to start climbing a step or stairs and use the injured leg to start descending a step or stairs.
  • Keep a distance between the walker and you with the toes inside the walker. Getting too close to the tips, front or wheels might affect your balance.
  • Refrain from wearing shoes with heels or leather soles and wear rubber-soled shoes or slippers or other soles that are non-skid.
  • Ensure cords, loose rugs or corners of rugs that stick out are held down to the floor to avoid getting tangled or tripping over them.
  • Replace worn out tips and wheels of the walker.

Health and Social Benefits

Using a walker will definitely improve a person’s health as the main aim is to encourage the use of the injured leg to get back to normal. Further, being able to move independently in an upright position paves the way to interact socially leading to a higher sense of well-being. It also improves a person’s self-image and self-esteem with the ability to communicate and interact in a natural manner.

ENJOY FREEDOM WITH THE BEST OXYGEN SOLUTIONS

DSC01253-small

People ailing with COPD could get back their freedom and enjoy life in a normal manner if they start using the Inogen One G4 oxygen concentrator. This unit is incredibly small and lightweight with an extremely quiet operation manufactured to be used 24 hours.

Free Shipping

Independent Living Specialists offers free shipping Australia wide for purchase of the Inogen One. So, make use of this facility fast. This unit is very light and you need not worry about carrying a heavy oxygen tank.

Operation of the Inogen One

This unit continuously cleans the air from the atmosphere, takes off nitrogen to deliver air rich with oxygen, delivers the cleaned oxygen via nasal cannula and it is powered by rechargeable battery or any AC or DC power source.

Inogen One G4 Oxygen Concentrator

The Inogen One G4 is officially the smallest and lightest portable oxygen concentrator ever released by Inogen.

Description

Priced at $4355.99, the Inogen One G4 oxygen concentrator is considered to be the smallest and lightest portable oxygen concentrator capable of providing oxygen 24/7 in an extraordinarily small package.

Despite the small size, the Inogen One G4 is unbelievably powerful. It has a pulse flow delivery system which means that it does not offer continuous flow. Instead, it is fitted with Inogen’s standard intelligent delivery technology to make sure the unit identifies your breath to deliver the oxygen with extreme preciseness.

Cost Conscious

Using an oxygen tank is costly as it involves buying a new one when the supply runs out.  But an oxygen concentrator does not have to be replaced as it will supply unlimited oxygen therapy on demand and the cost is only one payment when the device is purchased.

Social and health benefits

A patient could significantly reduce risks of complications related to COPD such as pulmonary hypertension, heart failure by inhaling pure oxygen with the aid of a concentrator.

Many patients suffer from shortness of breath and best relief is by getting the correct amount of therapeutic oxygen into the bloodstream.

Quality of life can be improved. The proper oxygen treatment will help you to improve your mood and enjoy life. You will be able to sleep better and gradually symptoms of depression will disappear when all the organs get the correct amount of quality oxygen and on the whole, make you feel and look better.

Risk of hypoxemia can be reduced. Shortness of breath, wheezing, confusion and sometimes the skin turning blue are some of the symptoms of hypoxemia. Getting pure grade oxygen in the system reduces these symptoms.

Additional Benefits

  • It doesn’t need oxygen refills or heavy tanks
  • Manufactured to suit travel use, portable or stationary locations.
  • Easy to travel in a pack.
  • Minimal maintenance.
  • In accordance with FAA requirements for airline travel

Safety

This unit is definitely much safer than an oxygen tank. Several decades back large oxygen tanks were used as the best option for oxygen therapy patients. However, today Imogen One G4 concentrator is considered the best choice. While oxygen tanks are exposed to the risk of leakage, oxygen concentrators do not have any risk of leakage. Leaks could probably trigger inflammability but this will never occur in a home oxygen concentrator as it generates oxygen only on demand and delivers it through a nasal cannula conveniently and safely.

 

MAINTENANCE OF A MOBILE SCOOTER

Mobility-scooters-simplifying-the-life-of-elderly-adults

First and foremost it is important to read the manual issued with the scooter and follow the instructions and recommendations mentioned by the manufacturer.

There are many things that can be done to ensure your mobility scooter remains in good condition and lasts as long as possible. Since all scooters are not the same, it is vital to follow the manufacturer’s advice as per the manual.

Washing and brushing your mobility scooter is essential for many reasons. Daily cleaning helps prevent dirt, dust, grime etc penetrating into parts of the scooter plus a clean outlook improves the appearance of the machine. However, it is also important to wipe and keep the scooter dry to keep the scooter rust free.

In order to prevent getting wet from rain and kept dry, many mobility scooters could be protected with protective covers. Keeping the seat and other fabrics on the mobility scooter dry are also very important.

12 AMP Battery

Batteries

Another important element of the mobility scooter is the battery which is usually sealed lead acid or gel based and needs to be charged after considerable use.

Usually, all mobility scooters have a guideline regarding the usage range of the battery, but this is only if it is not kept properly charged.  If you need to get the best use of the battery, it is recommended to charge the battery at least 12 hours after you receive it and thereafter keep it fully charged throughout for long-lasting usage. However, someday the battery could get exhausted so it is advised to get it checked annually by a professional to ensure it is charging properly.

Another way of keeping the mobility scooter maintained is greasing the terminals of the battery. The battery has to be cleaned with a damp cloth and if the battery does get wet, ensure to wipe and dry it completely before using the mobility scooter.

Eventually, there will be a decrease in the battery’s capacity to hold a charge, which will result in the mobility scooter being charged constantly. Always check the charge on the scooter’s indicator before embarking on a journey. A fully charged scooter is also necessary to power external lights when traveling in darkness or in bad visibility conditions.

Scout Quattro_removing battery

Charging the battery depends on the model of the mobility scooter. Sometimes it will need charging after every journey or when the charge indicator shows low. A mobility scooter battery usually lasts between one to two years before being replaced depending on the usage. In order to work efficiently, a battery has to be charged frequently.

During the winter season, it is important to be cautious about keeping the scooter charged as when a scooter is not in use the battery loses its charge and eventually decay if it is not charged at all times.

Brakes

Brakes have to be serviced annually by a professional to ensure safety. Most electric mobility scooters are fitted with an inertia system of braking which makes it halt when the power is eased off.

Tires

Every now and then the tires of the mobility scooter will wear off and a puncture is the biggest issue if you are a long way from home. Deep treat tires are the best, puncture proof tires available in the market.
