What You Put in Your Body Affects Your Health Greatly

I have always been one of those people who could eat whatever they wanted and never gain weight, and due to that fact, I never used to put much thought into what I ate. When I started experiencing health problems, my doctor ordered some tests and found that I was experiencing anemia due to an iron-deficient diet. I am grateful I had this "wake up call" before I continued to eat a bad diet for the rest of my life, because I soon also realized my diet was lacking vitamins and minerals. I changed my eating habits and began to feel much better. I began juicing to take advantage of all of the vitamins and minerals in healthy, fresh juice. I have learned a lot about health during my commitment to leading a healthier lifestyle, so I decided to start a blog to share my health advice with the world!

Don't Forget These Helpful Accessories When You Rent A Wheelchair For A Loved One

After a loved one successfully completes surgery, one of the ways that you'll be able to lend a hand is to rent whatever medical equipment will be needed to aid in mobility and recovery. Your local medical equipment rental service is the best place to rent a wheelchair that will help you to assist your family member in getting around. If you haven't previously rented a wheelchair, it's important to note that in some cases, the rental fee covers just the wheelchair itself. This means that you'll need to anticipate which accessories will be helpful so that you can rent them at the same time. Here are three accessories that are smart to rent:

Foot Rests

Although many wheelchairs come with footrests, not all of them do. This can leave your loved one's feet touching the floor, which will make it difficult for you to push him or her around. Telling the person to lift his or her feet isn't practical, and may not even be possible, so make sure that you also pick up a pair of footrests that are compatible with the wheelchair you'll be renting. If your loved one has just had a procedure that will require him or her to keep a leg straight and elevated, ensure that you have a leg rest for the wheelchair, too.

Lap Tray

If the person will be spending a considerable amount of time in the wheelchair, you'll also want to rent a lap tray. This accessory mounts between the wheelchair's two armrests and creates a small table that sits over the person's lap. It's handy for a variety of applications, including eating. For example, if the person's wheelchair is too high to slide under the edge of the dining room table at home, he or she can easily eat food off the tray while seated next to the table.

Carry Pack

Often, the person in the wheelchair will have a variety of medical and care products that he or she needs to keep handy. One way to manage these things is to rent a carry pack that will strap to the back of the wheelchair. This way, whoever is pushing the wheelchair will simply need to reach down, zip open the pack, and retrieve whatever the person needs. Wheelchair carry packs come in a variety of sizes, so you can assess your probable storage needs and then rent the right size of pack.
