Working With The ADP Helps Us Offer You More Affordable Options

At Vital Mobility, we understand that for many people, getting the best possible mobility-assisting equipment isn’t a choice, it’s a necessity. The difference between relying on others for assistance at all times and maintaining your own mobility and freedom is a massive one, and owning the right equipment can do everything to help a person regain control of their life, as well as completing the day-to-day tasks that make up a functional routine. We believe that everyone who needs it deserves the best-quality, high-grade, certified mobility equipment, which is why we’re proud to be a part of the Ontario Assistive Devices Program (ADP).

The ADP is a program put in place by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in order to help the people most in need of mobility assistive devices gain access to them. Many people are in dire need of the right equipment but may not feel it’s within their budget to seek out the devices which they’re most in need of, which is why this program exists. By providing comprehensive coverage for a wide range of crucial mobility devices and supplies to anyone with a long-term disability who is currently receiving benefits under one of Ontario’s disability support programs. There are three of these programs currently in place: Ontario Works, which provides financial support to people in temporary but serious need of help to pay for food and shelter; the Ontario Disability Support Program, which provides financial aid to those affected by physical disabilities; and the Assistance to Children with Severe Disabilities program, which provides financial assistance to parents or legal guardians of children under the age of 18 affected by severe disabilities.

The ADP works to provide qualified candidates with the assistance they need to access equipment and supplies that can make an enormous positive change to their quality of life. Given our firm belief that everyone deserves the highest possible quality of support and care, we are proud to be an authorized vendor of ADP approved and covered equipment and assistive devices. We’re happy to work with you as well as your occupational therapist to help determine exactly what the best possible device for you and your situation might be – our enormous selection of equipment includes everything from crutches, walkers, knee walkers, canes and rollators to devices like lift chairs, patient Hoyer lifts and home hospital beds. Whatever your situation, whatever level of assistance you require, we’re determined to help you find the best solution when it comes to your mobility. Working together with the ADP to provide you with equipment you can afford as well as use is one of the many ways in which we’re committed to ensuring your quality of care remains as high as possible.

Once you’ve spoken to your OT about what equipment might be the best for you, get in touch with us online, over the phone, or in person, to take a look at the wide range of equipment and supplies we have to offer, and together we can begin to decide on the devices that best suit your needs.

Step Into Spring With The Right Rollator Walker!

The seasons are changing, slowly but surely – though we keep finding ourselves dipping back into wintery weather and cold temperatures, there are days when you can hear birds chirping outside, when the sun peeks its head out from behind the clouds, and when it’s nice enough to even consider going for a walk.

For people unaffected by mobility-related concerns, or limiting injuries and conditions, the process of stepping out into spring is a simple one – you just put on your shoes and go. Navigating the streets and sidewalks is a breeze, especially now that the snow is finally melting! But anyone who’s experienced the pain and frustration that limited mobility can cause knows that there’s much more to the spring season than meets the eye. If you’re already a bit wary of stepping out into the world, the change in the seasons doesn’t necessarily always seem so freeing. You’ve spent the whole winter stuck indoors, relying on others for help and rarely stepping out for fear of having to navigate the treacherous ice and snow, only to have spring bring with it a whole new set of problems.

There’s the leftover ice that’s still in the process of melting, the huge puddles of water and slush that accumulate along the roads and sidewalks, the gigantic pellets of ice that can make navigating even the simplest of roads difficult – not to mention the cracks that have formed in the concrete over the course of the winter. For someone with limited mobility – either due to an injury or a more chronic condition – all of this can be enough to make you want to stay inside until July. Navigating this kind of an urban landscape in the springtime can be difficult even if you’re using a walker – the standard kind aren’t too good on rough landscapes and terrain, which means that you have to wait until all the sidewalks in your neighbourhood are completely free and clear before you’re free to take a walk or run errands on your own.

That is, until you buy a rollator walker.

Rollators are similar to walkers in that they provide a stable framework and support for you as you navigate the streets at your own pace – but unlike a standard walker, they’re also built to handle the more rugged and unpredictable terrain that often comes along on city streets. At Vital Mobility we offer a wide range of rollator walkers (https://www.vitalmobility.ca/Rollators.php) to suit anyone’s particular needs, including lightweight and three-wheel models, but the gist of each is the same – a rugged walker that features a seat for rests and brakes for dealing with sudden obstacles, often featuring a basket to help make your errands or your day-to-day travels just that much easier. With a rollator walker, you don’t have to worry about the difficulties of navigating the city’s sometimes-difficult springtime terrain – you’re good to go wherever you want, whenever you feel like it. Don’t let yourself stay cooped up through the springtime – get outside, enjoy the fresh air and the sunshine that spring brings around, and feel the benefits of newfound freedom that a rollator walker can provide.

How Buying A Patient Hoyer Lift Can Change Your Life For The Better

At Vital Mobility, our primary preoccupation has always been freedom. By offering a wide range of patient equipment, we’re always looking to fulfill our goal of encouraging people to reach the full extent of their physical freedom no matter what the circumstances. In many cases, this is a relatively simple task – if someone is having difficulty walking due to an injury or a chronic condition, they have the option of rollators, walkers, crutches or canes; those with joint issues can get lift chairs to help them in and out of a more comfortable position. But for those whose mobility is so severely compromised that getting in and out of bed presents a serious challenge for both patient and caregiver, the task is not quite as simple. Patient transfer in these cases often requires the help of a skilled and willing caregiver, and even then, it can be a difficult challenge to the strength and self-confidence of everyone involved. We believe everyone deserves the dignity and self-sufficiency that comes with simple and straightforward patient transfer, which is why we are proud to offer a wide range of patient Hoyer lifts for sale.

buyingpatienthoyerlift

A Hoyer lift is a mechanism that uses hydraulic or battery power and a comfortable sling to help a patient move from one location to another with comfort and ease. This greatly reduces the strain on both the patient and the caregiver that other, less sophisticated modes of transfer can create. The range of patient lifts we offer (viewable at http://www.vitalmobility.ca/Patient-Lifts.php) offers several options to ensure that you can find one that suits all of your needs to the greatest extent possible. We offer lifts that are battery-powered and come with reliable rechargers to help ensure maximum efficiency and reliability, as well as hydraulic lifts in a variety of configurations. We also have a stand-assist lift that is configured slightly differently from the other sling lifts – while these are ideal for raising or lowering a patient, the stand-assist helps with standing, as well as transferring and toileting.

Without the use of a proper patient lift, the act of transferring a patient or helping them to stand can be extremely difficult. Not only does this put a strain on the patient themselves – it can also make things significantly harder for the caregiver, whether they are professionally trained or a friend or family member simply trying to help. A person’s weight, combined with the fact that it is necessary to be extremely careful when helping someone to transfer from one position to another, can often be too much for some people, and if a transfer is executed improperly there is the possibility of severe consequences for the patient, but also for the caregiver, who can walk away from the situation with muscle strain or injury. It is extremely important to take all possible precautions when it comes to patient transfer – especially if it is happening several times a day on a regular basis. The time, money, stress and strain a state-of-the-art Hoyer lift can save everyone involved in the process adds up to something that’s undoubtedly priceless – the safety, security and freedom of both patient and caregiver.

Renting Or Buying Medical Equipment? Use A Supplier You Know You Can Trust

The process of searching for exactly the right medical equipment can be a hassle at best, or a headache at worst. There are so many products out there on the market these days, and how can you possibly tell the high-quality products apart from the rest? How are you supposed to determine the right balance between cost-effectiveness and quality? Should you be renting or buying? How much does a brand name matter?

All these questions and more will no doubt be swirling around in your mind as you attempt to navigate the world of medical supplies. There’s also the added fact that, whether you’re seeking the right equipment for yourself or a loved one, the condition that’s leading you to search for this product in the first place is also quite likely going to prevent you from being able to go out and road-test every model in search of exactly the right one. Whether your mobility is temporarily limited because of an injury or a surgery, or you’re experiencing a more chronic issue – or whether you’re looking for something for a loved one who can’t necessarily do the work of looking on their own – the very fact that you’re looking for medical supplies to help you live your life is what makes them so hard to figure out.

This is the paradox that many people find themselves running up against when they’re in a situation that limits their mobility. Almost everything requires extra work, effort and vigilance, but at times it can be extremely difficult to keep up. At Vital Mobility, we understand and sympathize with this problem; it’s why we’re so committed to offering you the best possible service, with a broad range of brands and options and experienced professionals who can give you honest and useful advice about what products are best for your particular situation. Contact us today to get the help and advice you have been looking for!

We understand the importance of being free – being able to determine, with dignity, where you want to go and how you want to get there. That’s why the range of products we carry is so wide: we think it’s important that you have as many options as we can afford to give you, and as many opportunities to make sure the medical supplies and equipment you’re buying suit your needs as possible.

We also have options for renting or buying different types of equipment because we understand that individual situations can change, as well as the fact that some people’s budgets can’t always support a full purchase the equipment they may need. Our goal is to be as accommodating as possible to your individual requirements and to offer you options that fit with what you want.

There are all kinds of reasons why a person might find their mobility limited – from a temporary injury that requires them to be on crutches for a shorter period of time, to longer or more chronic conditions that require wheelchairs, walkers, rollators or canes. There are also those who find their mobility more severely impaired, and whose caregivers need assistance helping them to do things like getting in and out of bed. “Mobility” isn’t simply a one-note issue – it’s a complex and nuanced term that means different things for different people, whether you’re dealing with a simple sprain, a complex joint issue, obesity, fibromyalgia, or any one of the hundreds of other issues that can cause a person’s mobility to be impaired. It’s difficult enough to deal with these things on their own – making sure you use a medical equipment supplier you can trust is one of the best ways to ensure that things don’t get any more complicated than they may already be.

Get Ready To Truly Relax With Our Medical Lift Chairs For Sale

We all know that relaxation is important. Everyone from the self-help gurus on TV to real-life medical doctors are always telling us that we need to slow down, take some time and take it easy in order to ensure a happier, healthier life. But relaxation isn’t always such a simple prospect. For a lucky few people, it may be as easy as kicking back on the couch with a book or a movie and letting all their cares just melt away – but for many of us, the prospect of actually being able to relax is far easier said than done.

For some people, there’s just always something to do; more errands to run, more phone calls to return, something coming up just around the corner that needs their attention. But for others, the issue occurs on a physical level as well. When your mobility is impaired by a chronic or persistent injury or condition, it can be difficult to relax even when you’re sitting down. The feeling that you’re not free to go where you want whenever you please can cause stress to “run in the background” even when you’re occupied with other things. Not to mention the fact that “relaxing” is really about feeling autonomous – it can be difficult to focus on reading a book or watching your favourite show when you’re also trying to figure out when you can get someone to help you get up or sit back down again.
