In the UK, there are 13.9 million disabled people, which equates to more than 1 in 5. Of course, not all disabilities affect mobility and when people think of mobility disability, they tend to think of those who require a wheelchair. In the UK, less than 8% of the population require a wheelchair. Mobility disabilities could include impairment to your limbs or spine or another part of the body that affects movement, grip and strength.

Tenura silicone jar openers and bottle openers help you twist-off lids on jars or bottles. They also reduce the strain put on muscles, which is essential for those who have impairment to their strength. Save 10% off with the discount code AMUK20 today.
Tenura coasters are small mats you can use for drinks and other objects such as ornaments to keep them held in place. The silicone has anti slip properties, which means that when an object is placed on the coaster it won’t move with ease even if it is knocked, it doesn’t slip, which helps you to avoid spills and avoid injury.
Frequently, we see the anti slip floor mats placed where a person goes from standing to a sitting position and visa versa. It helps the user get a foothold, which aids them in standing. Often the Tenura anti slip floor mats are helpful for those who use a Zimmer frame, wheelchair or require additional help during sitting/standing. It can provide an extra level of confidence as the person moves.
Tenura anti slip table mats help as objects such as a plate remain in place. It can be beneficial for people with mobility issues as the pressure can be used when eating with cutlery as the dish doesn’t move as they eat. When you use the anti slip table mat in conjunction with the bottle opener/jar opener a person can twist off a lid, one-handed.
