WHEELLATOR - Independence & Safety in Everyday Life Immobility Prevention due to Time Savings
Caregivers and assistants often face great challenges due to the lack of safety requirements. Not being able to push a person in an upright sitting position in standard rollators. Or otherwise assist with locomotion.
Independence & safety in everyday life, what are the consequences of immobility?
This often leads care staff to deny a large proportion of the people they care for the opportunity to go for a walk in advance. Consequently, to actively move independently in nature or in home premises. On the one hand, maintaining personal health-promoting mobility. On the other hand, the person being cared for is often placed in a wheelchair as a preventive measure. Which thus means that the accompanying independence is taken away from the caring user. Because this minimises any risks to the carer.
Immobility always involves a high risk.
The understandable risk here is that it takes a considerable amount of time to run back to fetch the required wheelchair if the person suffers a fainting spell. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the caregiver has to fetch the unused rollator in a further walk to the wheelchair. The high effort is avoided from the outset if possible due to the tense as well as overstraining situation of caregivers in everyday life. Affected persons are thus deprived of their independence and also lose core physical skills of walking in a slowly progressive process. At the same time, essential muscles regress. Furthermore, important bodily functions are restricted due to the lack of stimulation through movement.
Mobility Solution actively counters this ubiquitous problem.
The WHEELLATOR actively counteracts this ubiquitous problem. Assistants are now able to push the cared-for person in a controlled and secured manner. This is also the case when a cared-for person is no longer able to move around independently. The WHEELLATOR is thus easily adaptable to the physical strength of an individual and generates considerable time savings for caregivers.
Maintaining independence WHEELLATOR - Independence & safety in everyday life
The tasks of the WHEELLATOR are primarily to maintain the independence of our fellow human beings. Since the aspect of independence reflects an elementary part of the quality of life. Therefore, it is our claim to enable walking for people with any kind of restriction as far as possible. At the same time, we want to actively promote individual activity and health.
Help us to continue this idea and to give more people a dignified life. WHEELLATOR mobile with safety! Together into a safe future!
Avoid pain and injury with these 5 tips.
The correct adjustment of the rollator - wheellator is important.
- Before you use your outdoor rollator for the first time, you have to adjust the height of the handles exactly to your own body size.
- This is very important in order to maintain a healthy posture.
But how do you find the right height? It’s very simple! Therefore, you stand up straight and let your arms hang loosely, then the handles should be at the height of your wrists.
Pay attention to posture to ensure independence and safety in everyday life!
From the very beginning, you should pay attention to the correct posture in order to be able to use the wheellator for years without discomfort.
Therefore, keep your body straight and do not place the rollator too far away from you.
Better said, the back should remain as upright as possible, as the rollator only supports.
When walking, the pelvis should therefore be positioned between the handles and the large wheelchair wheels. In addition, the handles should be adjusted exactly to your own body size.
