Independence around the home
Independence around the home
It is known that older people can limit their physical activity and mobility due to psychological influences such as fear of falling, and anxiety. This unfortunately affects the quality of life of older people. Fear of falling can affect both self-image and self-confidence. This may occur after experiencing one or more falls. Poor balance, pain, and the fear of falling lead many older people to the conclusion that a walking stick (cane) no longer helps them enough, and that a walking device which provides more stability and a greater sense of safety, is needed.
One of the most important walking aids used by older people in the home or out and about, is the rollator, or wheely-walker. They come in many shapes and sizes.
Rollators provide increased security, balance, and a place to store things while mobile. Those designed for outdoor use also provide a seat. They are incredibly practical - whether you’re out and about shopping and doing other activities, or undertaking regular things about the home.
The KMINA Indoor Rollator – what is so special about it?
Gong Life Care Solutions supplies a very light-weight but strong, folding rollator walker.
Our KMINA rollator is especially designed for indoor use, and contributes to a user’s sense of independence and safety walking around at home. People with conventional outdoor rollators often abandon their use of the rollator indoors, as they can be heavy and wide and difficult to manoeuvre in the home. However our KMINA rollator, at just 54cm in width, is narrow enough to easily get through doorways and around furniture. It has a single handlebar, which is easy to manage and really assists stability, balance and manoeuverability. There are 5 click-in height adjustment settings, which are easily managed.
Users love this rollator because it weighs only 5.5 kgs and it folds and unfolds easily for putting into the boot of the car, or storing in the house when not in use. It has a cable braking system and the brakes can be applied by either hand, or both hands. Another feature that users find really convenient is the flat stable tray top which comes in very handy when preparing food or a drink, and taking it to another room. And of course the basket helps the user to carry items around the home.
Our quality walker is certified by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and European Conformity (CE). It is designed for people who have moderate to low dependence, who are able to walk with some assistance, but desire more independence around the home. The KMINA rollator will improve a user’s confidence in moving around safely in the home and promote their independence and sense of well-being.
