All our car travel aids are affordable, simple to install and can be easily transferred between different cars. They are a significant help towards maintaining your independence with driving.
What different car travel aids do you offer?
Back support – the back support fits on top of regular car seats to offer you improved postural support. It can be used on different seats in the car as well as other areas of the home.
Standing frame – we offer a standing frame which features a strong base for your feet and secure handles for you to hold. The frame can be used to lift yourself up or lower yourself down into the car. The frame handles are height and width adjustable so you can tailor it to your own needs.
Handles and bars – we offer two different handles to help you get in and out of your car. The handy bar fits onto the side of your car and features a handle to grip. The car caddie has a strap that fits around the top of your door. It has a padded handle at the end so you can grip it for support when getting out of your car. These handles are easy to install and can be transferred between cars.
What should I consider when choosing a car travel aid?
Personal mobility – it is important to consider your own mobility needs when choosing a car travel aid. If you just need a little handheld support when using your car, handles and bars are ideal and simple to use. However, if you need substantial support when standing you might consider the standing frame.
