Products & Aids

The Internet is truly a useful means by which to find appliances, equipment and gadgets to help a stroke victim and his or her care giver. One site which is rich in content is Caregiver Although this is a clearly commercial website Here there is a wide plethora of products and disability aids for stroke and other handicapped individuals.

Some of the items that caught my attention were ingenious products like a leg-lifter and a ‘Muff Vest’. This vest was designed by the spouse of a stroke survivor and helps to distribute the weight of an affected arm across both shoulders.

Other equipment like accessories for a wheelchair or a Bed Caddie – a piece of equipment that helps people with a general weakness or decreased back strength to pull themselves up to a sitting position are featured.

Prices are given in US dollars but it’s not clear whether these items can be shipped to India and whether there’s an affiliate supplier in the sub-continent.
