New to our range of walking frames is our red Dementia Frame, a lightweight aluminium walking frame finished in a vibrant red colour, designed to provide greater colour contrast and recognition, making it ideal for patients with symptoms of dementia. Red was chosen as there is evidence to suggest that the red part of the colour spectrum is most easily perceived by people with Alzheimer’s type dementia.
Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by a number of conditions, the most common of which is Alzheimer’s Disease. Symptoms of dementia include loss of memory, mood changes and communication problems. People affected will typically experience a decline in the ability to talk, read and write. Dementia is progressive, meaning that the symptoms will gradually get worse. A person in the later stages of dementia will have problems carrying out everyday tasks of daily living and will become increasingly dependent on other people.
All our walking frames are manufactured in Sheffield, United Kingdom. They are made from lightweight anodised aluminium with easy to manoeuvre rubber-tyred wheels to the front legs. They have slip-resistant rubber tips for added safety and an easy to clean hand grip.
