Personal care equipment

This section includes equipment to assist with personal care activities such as washing, shaving and applying make-up.

Long handled washing aids can be used for washing your feet, back or other hard to reach areas, such as between your toes. Some aids have retractable handles which make them easier to transport. In addition, some have enlarged handles, others have replacement heads or options for shorter or curved handles.

Hand and foot care equipment assists with nail care and washing feet. Some are long handled, making it easier to access the feet. Other aids provide stability, for example suction feet make it easier for one-handed use or is useful for a person with reduced hand grip.

Shaving equipment includes enlarged handles to make a shaver/razor easier to hold. These can be slipped over the handle. Also included is equipment that improves a person’s ability to grip an item by stabilising the hand.

Dental care equipment includes aids that stabilise a toothbrush or toothpaste making it easier to use - especially for one-handed use. Some aids will enlarge the handle of a toothbrush making it easier to hold.

Body dryers dry your body after bathing.

Hair dryers and holders that assist with drying hair as well as holders for the hairdryer.

Hair washing equipment enables you to have your hair washed, with your head backwards over a sink or while lying in bed. Also included are long handled aids, caps and shampoos to help with washing your hair.

Hairbrushes, and combs are long handled to extend reach. Also included are accessories to assist with hair care.

Small personal care aids have features that may assist users with low vision. Included are tweezers and nail clippers with attached magnifiers and magnifiers for attaching to mirrors.

Toiletry, cosmetic and jewellery applicators facilitate the application of cosmetics, lotions, hair dressings and jewellery. Some are long-handled which makes it easier to reach the feet or back to apply lotion. Other items make fine activities like using tweezers easier. Some of the products may assist blind or partially-sighted users through increased magnification.
