loving-and-happy-elderly-couple-in-a-modern-apartment-they-talk-smile-and-looking-at-the-camera_stnlfdvq__F0010

The elderly are prone to numerous physical difficulties which gradually develop with age, restricting their mobility and conducting their normal daily activities with much difficulty. Poor blood circulation and reduction in strength and adjust-ability are some issues that affect the living conditions. Using the correct furniture is very important to aid the specific needs to arrest this situation.

Benefits of a High Chair

A high chair provides good back and shoulder support. It is vital to use a high chair when the person is struck with a back injury and experiencing pain as it provides a good support for the back.

It supports the full spine and stimulates a good posture. The back is relaxed, prevents slouching ensuring less force on the spine. However, the best support is provided by chairs with backs that extend to the neck.

Independent Living Specialists has some of the best high chairs in all their stores Australia wide.

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.

iNOGEN

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.
