Details About Rehabilitation Products

    With a group of experienced foreign trade professionals, we supply rehabilitation

especially for patients and elder people, such as different types of walking sticks, E/M-wheelchiars, E/M

hospital beds, walking aids, homecare products like commode chair and shower chair, trekking pole and protectors for outdoor

sports, epidemic prevention products like face masks, gloves, thermometers ,protective clothing and

first aid kit etc.

    How do the different types of masks work?

    Medical masks

    Also called surgical masks, these are loosefitting disposable masks. They're meant to protect the wearer from contact

with droplets and sprays that may contain germs. A medical

face mask
also filters out large particles in the air when the wearer breathes in.

    To make medical masks more form-fitting, knot the ear loops where they attach to the mask. Then fold and tuck the

unneeded material under the edges.

    N95 masks

    An N95 mask is a type of respirator. It offers more protection than a face

does because it filters out both large and small particles when the wearer inhales.

    Because N95 masks have been in short supply, the CDC has said they should be reserved for health care

providers. Health care providers must be trained and pass a fit test before using an N95 mask. Like surgical masks, N95 masks

are intended to be disposable. However, researchers are testing ways to disinfect and reuse them.

    Some N95 masks, and even some cloth masks, have valves that make them easier to breathe through. Unfortunately, these

masks don't filter the air the wearer breathes out. For this reason, they've been banned in some places.

    Cloth masks

    A cloth face mask is intended to trap respiratory

droplets that are released when the wearer talks, coughs or sneezes. It also acts as a barrier to protect the wearer from

inhaling droplets released by others.

    The most effective cloths masks are made of multiple layers of tightly woven fabric like cotton. A mask with layers will

stop more droplets from getting through your mask or escaping from it.

    Choosing The Right Walking Stick – What To Consider

    That the walking stick is the right height for you
Which hand you are going to hold it in
Whether you need the walking stick to stand up by itself 
How much stability you need it to provide
Whether you are going to take it upstairs
Whether you need a seat so you can rest

    If you are looking at a second hand walking stick or inheriting a stick it is important to check the condition. 

Look to see that the ferrules at the bottom of the stick and any adjustable joins aren’t worn. 

    If it is a wooden walking stick, check that it is long enough and be prepared to cut it down if needed.

    How To Measure For A Walking Stick

    Getting the height right for a walking stick is very important.  If you have one too high it won’t be as stable and

you won’t be able to put weight through it safely. Too low can negatively impact on your posture leading to increased


    So Here Is How You Measure For A Walking Stick

    Wearing your normal shoes, stand-in your normal standing position with your arms relaxed and hanging down by your sides

with a slight bend in your elbow.

    Have someone to hold a stick just close, about 15cm from your side.

    Your wrist joint should be at the same height as the stick handle without changing your position.

    If you don’t have a stick to measure against then ask someone to measure from your wrist joint to the floor while you

are in this position with a tape measure and round to the nearest cm.

    How To Use A Walking Stick

    You can use a walking stick either as a single or as a pair.  How you walk with them will depend on what your

particular needs are and restrictions you may have.

    If you are walking with a pair of walking sticks it is particularly important that you walk with the right

technique.  A physiotherapist can advise you on the right technique for you as well as how to use them going up and


    At ElWell we provide a physiotherapy service at home in Oxfordshire or you can find one through the CSP

(Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) Find a Physio. Alternatively visit your GP and request a referral.

    Using the wrong walking stick or using it with a poor technique can be unsafe and lead to an increased risk of


    Different Types Of Walking Sticks

    Foldable Walking Stick

    For something a bit more fun and discreet choose a patterned foldable walking stick which you can use just when needed.

    Adjustable Walking Stick

    Lightweight strong and adjustable, here is a standard adjustable walking stick.

    Walking Sticks With Seats

    If you tire easily and have reasonably good balance, then a walking stick with a seat can be a good option. If you need

to rest for longer periods or need help carrying shopping look at our walking aid guide and consider an outdoor


Types of Wheelchairs

A wheelchair is comprised of a seat with four wheels attached. The wheels towards the back are usually bigger and have rims

that you can use to push the chair forward or backward and to turn. There are many types of wheelchairs.

Electrical wheelchair is one that you can propel

with a motor. You use a joystick or other control device to help steer, start, and stop the chair. These types of wheelchairs

are usually very heavy and bulky due to the battery pack that powers the wheelchair.

A manual wheelchair is one that you push using your

arms. Another person can also help push the wheelchair with handles on the back of the chair. Many manual wheelchairs are

able to be folded to make them easy to transport and store.

There are many moving parts on the wheelchair, so folding and unfolding the wheelchair can be challenging. By following

these basic instructions, folding and unfolding a wheelchair will be a breeze.

Keep in mind that not all wheelchairs are alike and that the instructions below should be useful for most manual folding

wheelchairs. Your wheelchair may be different, so if you are having a hard time folding or unfolding it, please consult your

doctor or local physical therapist for help.

Opening and Closing a Wheelchair

    To open or unfold the wheelchair:

    Place your wheelchair on a solid even surface.
    Make sure the brakes are locked. You do not want your wheelchair rolling away from you as you try to open it

up. Usually, there are small levers in front of each rear wheel that engage to lock the wheels.
    Grab the seat of the wheelchair with one hand in the front and one in the back.
    Slowly push the seat down in the middle of the seat. The sides and wheels of the wheelchair should slide away from one

    Push all the way down until the seat is fully opened.
    Your wheelchair is now ready for use. Be sure the brakes are locked before attempting to sit in your wheelchair.
To close or fold the wheelchair:

Make sure the brakes are applied to the wheelchair. 
    Stand in front of the wheelchair and grab the seat of the chair with one hand in the front and one hand in the back.
    Slowly lift up on the seat. The seat should fold in half and the wheels should move closer together.
    Fully raise the seat in the middle, and the wheelchair should be folded up and ready to transport or store.
