Car Mobility Aid / Swivel Cushion for Car
Hospital Direct’s car mobility aid – the Handy Bar – helps those with limited mobility get into and out of cars without assistance from a carer.
This simple but effective Handy Bar helps those who struggle with mobility to stand when stepping out of a vehicle. If you struggle to get in and out of cars and need a helping hand, this car mobility aid will make a huge difference to your comfort during car journeys. Plus, you’ll get your independence back so you can travel from A to B.
The Handy Bar may be small, but its impressive strength and durability make it suitable for virtually anyone, regardless of height or weight. The forged steel bar fits into the U-shaped striker on either the driver or passenger car door frame, where it can remain for as long as needed. Plus, you have a soft, comfortable, non-slip handle to grip as you stand. You can then easily store the Handy Bar in your glove box until needed again.
The Handy Bar’s flexible design means it can also act as a seat belt cutter and glass breaker in the event of an accident. The car mobility aid is a travel essential for anyone looking to regain their independence in vehicles.
You can use the Handy Bar on its own or in combination with our Car Slide Sheets or Swivel Cushion for Car Use, both of which make getting into and out of vehicles easier.
