Falls in the home are one of the most common causes of injury for elderly adults living on their own. One out of every three people over age 65 falls each year and 40% of those admitted to a nursing home due to a fall never return to living independently. Many of these falls result from a change in elevation, such as climbing or descending stairs. For those having difficulty with stairs because of painful arthritis, a recent surgery or injury, or who simply fear falling, the Flip A Grip Doorway Assist Handle can restore confidence and independence by providing a sturdy handle to brace on during difficult tasks. The Flip A Grip assist handle was invented by a physical therapist to help avoid potentially devastating falls. The Flip A Grip can be installed in doorways or other areas of the home where there is not enough space for a large grab bar. The Flip A Grip can be easily installed inside or outside your home, doorways, hallways, bathrooms, stairwells and other areas in homes, assisted living and apartment buildings. And the Flip A Grip folds out of the way when not needed and glows in the dark for extra visibility at night.
Features and Benefits
Glow in the dark, non-slip grip
Simple to install and folds easily out of the way
Made of sturdy materials that will last in interior or exterior applications
Unlike grab bars, allows user to both push down and pull
Small enough to fit in spaces where a large grab bar will not work, like doorways
TENS is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain, which uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves in order to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle(s). This is achieved by sending low frequency electric pulses through muscle tissue causing them to gently contract. In this way the muscles are passively exercised and blood flow is increased
Galvanic Stimulators use direct current, which creates an electrical field over the treated area. The positive pad works like ice, causing reduced circulation to the area under the pad. The negative pad works like heat, causing increased circulation.
IF sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin to work on deeper tissue stimulation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.
Infrared Light Therapy help the body by delivering specific light waveforms that increase circulation. Increasing circulation helps promote healing, lessen swelling, and helps in reducing pain.
Portable Ultrasounds give advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves, which travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation. This helps increase blood flow to the treated area.
Russian stimulation uses medium frequencies to provide stimulation to muscle groups. This is used to reduce muscle spasms as well as for muscle strengthening. This method was created to produce maximal muscle strengthening effects.
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body. The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt.
