Look after Your Body
The human body is a pretty spectacular machine, but it’s also fragile and deserving of due care and attention! It’s important to be aware of your body’s needs and take good care of yourself, especially if you have mobility issues which result in certain parts of your body taking more of the strain than others. At Ability Superstore, we have a fantastic range of body care products and aids to help you look after your body and show those aching joints, tired muscles and dry skin a bit of extra TLC.
Back pain is one of the leading causes of discomfort and disability in the UK. In 2014, a study published in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases medical journal found that lower back pain caused more disability than any other condition, affecting nearly 1 in 10 people. At Ability Superstore, we stock an extensive range of back cushions and supports to help you maintain good posture and provide relief to tired, aching backs. Whether you’re on your feet all day, sitting at a desk for long periods of time or just generally have bad posture, we’ve got the right back support for you. We also stock a selection of massagers to help ease back pain, provide soothing muscle relief and relax your spine.
Our feet are one of the hardest working parts of our bodies — it’s no wonder that, as we get older, we’re increasingly likely to develop problems with our feet. This makes it important to remain vigilant and offers those tootsies the utmost support, comfort and care. Put a spring back in your step with our fantastic range of foot care products. We’ve got everything you need, from socks and insoles, to help cushion and protect your feet when you’re out and about, to heel protectors and splints, which help protect against sores and aid with general achiness. We also stock nail and skin care products and aids to help treat and prevent blisters, corns and bunions.
Give your hands the love they deserve with our range of hand care products and accessories. From hand sanitiser dispensers and anti-bacterial hand wipes to wrist and thumb splints and supportive gloves for oedema and arthritis, we have everything you need to protect, support and rejuvenate your hands.
Personal Care & Hygiene
Gripping, bending, reaching and twisting are integral to a number of everyday tasks, from washing ourselves to clipping our toenails, but, for many people with mobility issues, these kinds of movements can be a struggle, making taking care of yourself and staying on top of personal hygiene tricky. Our range of personal care products is the ideal solution for those that struggle to wash and care for themselves because of limited mobility. Our long-handled sponges and brushes, ergonomic nail file grips and table-top nail clippers help make daily personal care tasks a doddle. We’ve even created a complete Easy Reach Kit, which contains a long-handled sponge, grabber, sock aid, dressing stick and shoehorn — ideal for those with mobility difficulties, back problems or medical conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia. We also stock a wide range of reliable and discreet continence care products and accessories. From incontinence underwear and disposable pads to bed, chair and carpet protectors and bed wetting alarms, our range of incontinence care products is designed to give you guaranteed protection and complete peace of mind.
We also stock a great range of medical and assessment equipment. Our medication aids, including pill poppers, dispensers and organisers, rehabilitation equipment and first aid supplies give you everything you need to manage your health safely at home.
