QD Stores Increase Range of Mobility Aids and Support Norwich’s Disability Pride Festival

Mobility and living aids can make a huge difference to a disabled or elderly person's quality of life giving them a far greater degree of freedom and independence. However, quality products which are versatile and lightweight yet sturdy, typically come at a high price, and matching a wish list of design features with individual needs and lifestyles can be a daunting and expensive process. That's why QD has introduced into its stores an extended and improved range of mobility products designed for those customers with a disability or restricted movement.

In addition, the QD Stores Group has pledged its support to the Disability Pride 2010 Festival which takes place at The Forum in Norwich on 5th June to showcase the talent, achievements and successes in arts, culture and music of disabled people in the region.

Aware of how expensive outdoor equipment for the disabled can prove, QD has made affordability a priority. It has also compiled a comprehensive range of handy living aid gadgets to make everyday tasks around the home so much simpler. From support grip handles and tools for picking up items, to orthopaedic seat cushions providing optimum comfort, stores now stock the latest high specification shopping scooters to enable the disabled or elderly to travel safely and smoothly around town. Proving popular is a compact folding scooter which fits neatly into the boot of a car making it especially easy to get out and about in the countryside this spring and summer.

 

 

According to figures from the Norfolk Coalition of Disabled People (ncodp), there are no fewer than 200,000 disabled people in Norfolk alone. As QD's Marketing Operations Manager, Alan Hatcher, explains, QD has attached great importance to catering for the needs of those people across the UK who suffer from a disability or have age-related mobility problems.

 

"We are delighted to be supporting the work of the ncodp in organising this year's festival as it's such a worthwhile cause. As a company we have carried out a great deal of research into the various options and brands available on the market for the disabled in order to guarantee customers a range which satisfies a host of rigorous criteria in terms of quality, robustness and manoeuvrability, whilst remaining ever conscious of cost. The result is an extensive choice of products, now conveniently available on the high street, designed to make life a whole lot easier for so many. In the case of mobility aids, these will give our disabled and elderly customers a much greater degree of independence, allowing them to get out of their homes more easily so as to enjoy life to the full."

 

QD has ensured that its range caters for a broad spectrum of special needs and budgets. Prices start at just £2.99 for a hand grip jar and bottle opener and £3.99 for a pill wallet, rising to under £1,500 for a top of the range mobility scooter. All stores stock everyday items such as folding walking sticks, long-handled shoe horns and orthopaedic items, whilst QD's larger stores and outlets offer the full selection of ultra lightweight aluminium tri-walkers, versatile wheelchairs and rollators, which can be conveniently viewed in-store before purchasing. For added convenience home delivery is available on all larger items, such as scooters and the mobility recliner.
