Life isn't always easy; sometimes the obstacles that arise can feel utterly overwhelming. In such instances, occupational therapy can help. By focusing on the therapeutic use of everyday activities (also known as occupations), occupational therapists can help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do. Often occupational therapists use products, like those we offer, to help make these opportunities to participate more accessible.
In today's article, we're going to take a look at three common life obstacles: incontinence, mobility, and respiratory issues.
In 2008, the world market for urinary continence care devices of all kinds (particularly urinary catheters and protective pads) was valued at $1.8 billion. This shows you that you're not alone in your struggle; there are millions of people out there dealing with the same perceived embarrassments due to leaks and accidents.
The concept of adult diapers (and various other urological supplies) tends to carry a negative connotation, but Wellness Briefs and Wellness Underwear are of a different ilk. By taking advantage of the same technology astronauts use in space, these underwear are specially designed to eliminate leaks and reduce odor and irritation. These premier urological supplies will help you regain your confidence in no time!
When we age, our bodies slow down; joints and muscles can become stiff, especially if we aren't as active as we used to be. While the struggles of these side effects of age can be quite crippling, there are several mobility accessories that can get you up and moving again.
