Couple Retain Golfing and Gardening Freedom with TGA Off-Road Mobility Scooters

Off Road Mobility ScootersJim and Gill Gordon from Aberdeenshire are both in their eighties and despite living with restricted mobility, their zest for life has returned thanks to golf course and garden-friendly TGA mobility scooters.

Jim and Gill Gordon are both in their eighties and, despite restricted mobility, have been able to retain their zest for life thanks to golf course and gardening friendly TGA mobility scooters. Jim and Gill are a remarkable couple from Aboyne near Aberdeen, Scotland. They have led very active lives all round the world following Jim’s career as a senior executive with Shell before retiring 21 years ago. They lived in the UK three times, Holland three times, Kenya twice, and in Curacao in the West Indies before eventually settling back in Scotland in the early 1970’s. Outside of his career Jim has always been a keen golfer, however over the past few years his mobility and eyesight have been compromised, resulting in a loss of independence and ability to enjoy his beloved sport.

Gill has also unfortunately experienced difficulties with mobility as a result of worsening back problems. Her ability to maintain their beautiful 2-acre garden was becoming impossible until she took ownership of a TGA Mystere at the same time as Jim purchased his Breeze S3 GT.

As a respected worldwide supplier of wheelchair access solutions for buses, coaches, specialist transport and accessible cars, Mobility Networks was proud to sponsor the 2015 Mobility Roadshow. On Stand TD02, Mobility Networks hosted a global launch of its new ultra-thin vehicle cassette lift manufactured by Italy’s Autolift and revolutionary electronic vehicle controls from RB Systems based in Israel. These notable new products were displayed alongside other examples from the Mobility Networks portfolio including Access Lite and Inboard platform lifts from PLS and Flexirail vehicle flooring. Popular UK TV celebrity Dr Hilary Jones also visited the Mobility Networks stand during his official tour of the show and was given a product demonstration by PLS Managing Director Adam Beck.

Autolift’s ‘F6 Multi-link’ wheelchair passenger vehicle lift was a highlight at The Mobility Roadshow. Its revolutionary design provides one of the lightest and most slim, powered cassette platforms available in the world whilst delivering assured strength and reliability.  Working in partnership with Mobility Networks, Autolift is a trusted specialist in powered vehicle lifts and its heritage for innovation is once again reiterated in this latest lift. The aluminum F6 platform with stainless steel cassette was deployed on a regular basis to international trade and consumer visitors to this year’s Roadshow who were able to see and understand why its design is so unique. It requires no vehicle modifications for installation, which means fitting is fast and efficient – the OEM fuel tank and exhaust systems do not need any alteration and remain Euro 6 compliant. This side access lift and its housing cassette are only a mere 60mm in height and suitable for a variety of MPVs. It has an impressive lifting capacity of 300kg and incorporates a powered roll-off stop and light indicators for added safety. Its cutting-edge ‘multi-link’ engineered arms ensure smooth and whisper-quiet lifting and lowering – delivering unparalleled stability and safety.

Also on Mobility Networks’ stand, RB Systems unveiled its ground breaking adapted driving controls for users with limited hand movement. This electronic specialist demonstrated a range of steering wheel mounted driving aids that allow direct operation of secondary vehicle controls such as indicators, lights and wipers. RB Systems’ JoySpinner is the only controller of its kind that incorporates a mini-joystick to activate 12 different functions. This original design provides greater ease of use over competitor solutions that commonly encompass small buttons that individually activate vehicle operations. With the JoySpinner, drivers are able to operate secondary car functions through intuitive thumb movements without the need to visually engage with a control panel – hence substantially increasing driver safety. All driving controls from RB Systems leverage the latest technology in terms of micro controllers, flexible computer language and bluetooth connections to vehicle computer systems. Processers are compact for simple retro-fitting behind dashboards and hand controls ensure non-invasive installation.

Abacus Healthcare – Making Daily Living Easier with Wash and Dry Toilets

Picture
The task of toileting can, therefore, become increasingly difficult if our hand dexterity, eyesight, balance or strength becomes impaired.

When impairments affect a person’s ability to use the toilet, such as holding the toilet paper or cleaning themselves properly, the activity can lead to increased levels of anxiety and stress for those users. These problems are then compounded by the frequency of visits to the toilet which is often anything between four and ten times in any twenty-four hour period.

There are various products available on the market that can offer a genuine solution to cleaning after bowel movements or passing urine, enhancing levels of dignity and independence. One such solution is a wash and dry toilet.
