    Keeping Mum & Dad At Home: Bathroom Aids

    A slip or a fall can cause very minor or very serious injuries, depending on the circumstance. They are very common in the bathroom due to baths/showers and spills of water. The older we are or the less mobile we are, can increase the impact they have on our bodies so if there is any chance of us decreasing the chances of them, then we should take the opportunity to do so as they can have a huge influence on our everyday lifestyle, independency, confidence and mental health.

    According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics, over 30% of adults over the age of sixty-five, have at least one fall a year due to their own health e.g. muscle weakness, mobility, poor eyesight and balance problems. Although, not all falls results in bodily injuries,

    The event saw athletes competing in 13 sports and Motor Activities Training, including Athletics, Aquatics, Badminton, Basketball, Bocce, Bowling, Equestrian, Football, Golf, Gymnastics, Kayaking, Pitch & Putt and Table Tennis.

    Over 2,500 volunteers were on hand to judge competitions, guide athletes to various events and provide catering, entertainment, transportation and medical back-up and Beechfield Healthcare was delighted to be a part of the event, supplying all wheelchairs and shower commodes for the competitors of the Special Olympics in DCU & National indoor Arena.

  5. Avoiding Trips & Falls This Winter

    Avoiding Trips & Falls This Winter

    With the weather to take a turn for the worse this week, everyone, especially the elderly, needs to take extra care. The consequences of a fall are far more serious for the elderly and that’s why they need to take precautions and mind themselves in the bad weather.

    Whether it’s the slippy footpath or something hidden by the ice or snow, there is no way of predicting a fall and it can happen suddenly. Sometimes being prepared for the worst can be the only way to prevent these trips and falls. Some of these precautions are things you can do for yourself and others are things you can do around your home.

    Personal safety

    • In icy weather and conditions, wear sensible, flat shoes with non-slip soles. If you really need to go outside, try to limit the walking you will be doing. (It is so important for elderly people to wear well-fitting shoes every day, not just during the bad weather!)
    • Have your eyes tested regularly. Poor

Most of our commodes are height adjustable which makes life easier for the user.

  9. Pressure Mapping & Correct Seating

    Pressure Mapping & Correct Seating

    There is always an ongoing debate about what is the best pressure cushion on the market. Is there really one cushion that offers the optimum solution for pressure relief for all? In reality such a cushion doesn’t exist. However, at Beechfield Healthcare our state-of-the-art pressure mapping technology now offers you the opportunity find the optimum cushions for your patients.

    What is a pressure map?

    A pressure map is a computerised tool for assessing pressure distribution. To use it, you first place the thin sensor mat on a seat, wheelchair or mattress. When your patient sits or lies on the mat, a computer screen displays a heat-map of pressure distribution. The hotter colours (oranges and reds) indicate areas of higher pressures, and the cooler colours (blues) indicate areas of lower pressures.

    Sample Pressure Map

    By testing various cushions and their results on the chair we can help to find the best fit for each of your patients. OTs in particular
