Shower Chair Seats

leave a comment »

When dealing with an elderly person, with disabilities, it can be very difficult to help them bath or take a shower.  A shower chair seat can be a real life saver.  As a care giver to my mother, using a shower chair seat not only helped my mother be a little more independent, but saved my back, arms and neck.  Caregiver injuries are a common occurrence.  With the shower chair seat my mother worries less about falling, and I have more peace of mind.  On her good days the shower chair seat allows her to take a shower with out assistance form me.   I am amazed at how a product as simple as a shower chair seat can with my mother’s  independence.  If you are currently a caregiver for an elderly person with physical limitations, or if you are elderly with diminishing physical limitation, please consider purchasing a shower chair seat.  You may even want a shower chair seat for yourself.  When my grandchildren come to stay the weekend, they always ask if they can take a shower on Great Grandmas shower chair seat.  I think that my inlaws will be getting a shower chair seat for Christmas.  I hope the shower chair seat helps others that are going through the same things I am. Check out our find selection of shower chair seats at TheMedicalClub.comShower chair seats start at under $50, a wise investment to say the least.

Thank you,

NuProdx Multichair

with one comment

NuProdx MultichairWhen it comes to bathroom access for persons with disabilities the challenges for both that person and caregivers can be very difficult. A fairly new solution is now available at TheMedicalClub.com, the Nuprodx Multichair. Nuprodx has developed a line of bathroom access chairs that can solve a mountain of problems. Beginning with the Nuprodx Multichair 3000, the best tub, shower and toilet chair available anywhere.It is stable, lightweight and the optional transfer cushion (Nuprodx Multichair 3000TX) can be added for transfers into a tub area. The Nuprodx Multichair 3000 also comes with a nylon travel bag. The chair can be folded, placed in the bag and it’s ready to go when you are. The bag will fit under a wheelchair, pass through airport security scanners and easily stow in an overhead bin on most aircraft. Next up in the Nuprodx Multichair line is the 4000. With added wheels and caregiver handles, swing away foot rests and fold back locking padded arms, the Multichair 4000 becomes an excellent roll-in shower chair as well as a roll over toileting chair. These three Nuprodx Multichairs make for an excellent bathroom solution and have left me quite impressed with the Nuprodx line. But Nuprodx did not stop there. They developed a rail bath transfer system that allows the user to roll up to the tub, connect to a rail frame and then slide over into the tub area without ever leaving their chair. The advantages to this system are enormous, not the least of which is the relief from difficult wheelchair transfers in the bathroom itself. What a relief for the caregiver, especially when attempting to transfer a person with limited sterngth in their arms and legs. Further, Nuprodx carefully thought through this product line as well, making it lightweight, easily removable so others can use the bathtub and easy to reinstall. If you are searching for some bath safety solutions, including the often difficult search for the right bath transfer system, I would encourage you to visit our NuProdx Multichair line at TheMedicalClub.com. Although there are much less expensive solutions, like the Eagle Sliding Transfer Bench, if the funds are available, the NuProdx Multichair offers advanced, well thought out solutions, in a lightweight product of the highest quality. Of the dozens we have sold at The Medical Club, we have experienced no warranty issues, nor have we had any chair returned because it did not do what it was advertised to do. Each NuProdx Multichair comes with a 30 day money back guarantee (less a 20% restocking fee, so make sure it’s what you want) and a one year full replacement warranty on any failed part. I hope your search for the proper bath safety equipment is fruitful and that you find the right product that provides quality service for your family, yourself or the person you are caring for. As always, if we can be of assistance in any way, from answering the simplest question to pointing you toward a good solution, please give us a call at The Medical Club at 800-450-1513 God bless.

Folding Shower Seats

leave a comment »

One of the extremely popular products online today are the folding shower seats. Basically, the folding shower seat attaches to the wall of your shower and can fold up against the wall and out of the way when not in use, then, when the shower seat is needed, perhaps after the user has entered the shower, it folds down and is ready to be useful. The AKW brand of folding shower seats offered on our site, themedicalclub.com, offer some of their chairs with swing down arms. The arms themselves swing up out of the way or down for use. One of the nice features of these arms is that they can hold about 122 lbs. of weight, which makes them an excellent grab point when entering or exiting the shower. Another very popular product in the folding shower seats section of themedicalclub.com is the Serena Seat from Healthcraft. Made of solid walnut from Brazil, these folding shower seats are naturally resistant to moisture while offering an extremely attractive look that compliments almost any bathroom. Other folding shower seats offer a wide range of sizes and options including compact shower seats for small spaces, deluxe fold down seats with arms, padded seats, wider seats, and seats with “u” shaped cut outs for washing those private areas without having to stand. If you have a need for a folding shower seat, I would urge you to check out our complete line at by clicking on this link http://www.themedicalclub.com/Fold_Down_Shower_Seats_s/344.htm. Our folding shower seats start at just $179 and are the best quality folding shower seats available. We also offer an extensive line of bath safety products including roll-in showers, all sorts of toilet assist devices and all types of shower seating. We believe the most important thing for everyone to remember is that it is the preventative steps to bathroom safety that save time, money and medical expense. All to often people come to us for help after that first injury. As we age, admitting that we need these types of assistive device before we actually take a fall is the first step towards an effective bath safety program. Do you know someone or care for someone who has diminishing physical abilities? Whether you visit our store or any of the other wonderful web stores offering these products, please take the preventative action that helps keep everyone out of the doctor’s office.

Home Care For Elderly

leave a comment »

Home care for elderly people takes a giant leap forward today as the Simply Home Butler System celebrates its initial lift off at TheMedicalClub.com. This is no ordinary home monitoring system. Simply Home uses smart technology to assist relatives and caregivers with unparalleled access to those elderly they are caring for. Integrating computer access and digital technology this system takes home care for elderly persons to the next level. Some of Simply Homes basic abilities to assist you with home care for elderly persons include email, text or phone messages sent to caregivers, family, friends or emergency personnel at specific times. And because the system is smart, you can set the criteria to tell the system when to call and who to call. This product can almost do whatever your imagination can conceive. Including, monitoring door and window openings and closings, appliances left on, water left running, access to medications, changes in behavior that are causes for medical concern, toileting frequency, lack of movement, changes in personal schedules and much, much more. It is no doubt time that home care for elderly people made the technology leap it has today, allowing people to care for elderly family from across the country or across the world. And the cost savings of this system versus assisted care are enormous. The initial investment is no more than the cost of one month of an assisted care facility and the monthly monitoring fees are customized to fit each caregivers need, starting at just $59.95 per month for basic monitoring up to $299.95 monthly for monitoring that includes daily assessment by a certified therapist. Is this beginning to come together in your mind? Let me give you some examples. Mom or Dad are a little forgetful but are intent on living out their days in their home. Dad sleeps in, an hour past his regular wake up time. Simply Home monitors the lack of bedroom motion and alerts you. Then a simple phone call lets you know everything is OK. Or how about this scenario? Mom puts a pot on the stove to cook some lunch, goes back to her easy chair and falls asleep. After a certain number of minutes, Simply Home notices the stove has been on but there has been no motion in the kitchen. Simply Home shuts the stove off, YES IT SHUTS THE STOVE OFF! and sends you an alert, or the neighbor an alert or the monitoring staff an alert. It is difficult to do verbal justice to the abilities of this system and how it will effect home care for elderly people in the 21st century. I would urge you to call TheMedicalClub.com at 800-450-1513 and ask to speak to a Simply Home representative, or visit our virtual home care for the elderly display at www.themedicalclub.com/elderly_home_monitoring_systems_s/3851.htm. Welcome to the future!

Cheap Shower Chairs

leave a comment »

Most web merchants, including us a TheMedicalClub.com keep an eye on search terms used by internet consumers. Today I noticed that the search term Cheap Shower Chairs has been used an enormous number of times lately, probably indicating that in today’s challenging economy, inexpensive medical items are in great need. The good news is you can buy a cheap shower chair for less than $60 including shipping. Just be sure to check the weight capacity of your cheap shower chair before you make your purchase. Drive Medical produces a delightful line of cheap shower chairs that come in assorted colors. The 350 lb. weight capacity works for most of us and you can have free delivery to your door in just a few days. So while a cheap shower chair might fit the need, it does not need to look like a cheap shower chair or perform like a cheap shower chair. Remember, a fall in the bathtub or shower can cost you plenty, so always be sure you are purchasing from a reputable web company and the brand of shower chair you are purchasing is a name brand, like Moen, Drive, Invacare, or Lumex. And while you are shopping check out the large selection of not so cheap shower chairs that offer wonderful features like padded seats, commode openings, open fronts for personal bathing, swing away arms or fold down shower seats that attach to your shower wall. Please check out our extensive line of shower chairs at TheMedicalClub.com/shower_chairs. Thanks!

How Much Is Your Freedom Worth?

leave a comment »

Soprano Dolomite Walker
The Soprano Dolomite Walker is an excellent outdoor walker. It’s ten inch wheels make rougher terrain easier to navigate. Its wireless design means no visible break cables can get in the way and it’s welded steel frame eliminates rear forks giving you more walking space. Priced higher than the standard walkers, most of which are made in China. The European produced dolomite line offer real value, at a higher but still reasonable price. Listen to what a recent purchaser said about this walker. “my Soprano walker arrived this morning and I have already been up to the barn to visit my beautiful horses, out to the garden, down our half mile long driveway to the mail box and all with great ease. I would highly recommend this walker to anyone who likes the outdoors as much as I do.” Yes, this walker sells for over $400 but then again, how much is your freedom worth?
