When it comes to products in the market that are helping the lives of the physically disabled most people think of canes and wheelchairs.
But there are so many new creations out there that are making people’s lives so much easier and accessible.
I thought, why not write a post listing some of those products?

A lot of disabled people have severe limitations on their hands due to Carpal Tunnel, Amputation, Nerve Damage, Rheumatoid Arthritis, among other things.
Others have difficulty with fine finger manipulations, where even buttoning a shirt is a difficult task. Here are some of the best products out there to make their lives easier.
Just click on the link and you are sent directly to the place where you can purchase them.
Item 1 is a great product for those who have difficulty holding utensils. They made the handles a little thicker so that holding a fork or a knife is much more stable and less painful.
Item 2 is a kit with a shoe horn, no tie shoelaces, a long handle sponge for showering, a sock aid and much more. It’s an all-in-one dressing assistant.
Item 3 is a kit also with a jar opener gripper, a thick handled stylus for phone and tablet use, and a button helper. I particularly like the button helper. This is one of the toughest things for those with finger limitations to accomplish when they want to wear a button down shirt.
Item 4 is a toothpaste dispenser. Excellent for those who can’t use a lot of pressure on their hands.
Best Products for Those With Back Problems
People with back problems not only have issues with pain but limitations with flexion and extension can prevent them from bending, reaching and twisting.
Simple activities like sitting, picking up items from the floor, and reaching for the remote can be excruciatingly painful. Here are some products making their lives a little easier:
Item 1 is a cushion for between the knees. It will help with the alignment of the spine while you are lying down. Some report relief when the spine is in a more straight position. Mattresses can sometimes be too soft or hard to accomplish the alignment.
Item 2 is a back brace with the extra coolness of an ice pack. Hum, I wonder if this could help with hot flashes…
Item 3 is a new item in the market that promises pain relief for those suffering from chronic pain. If you look at the reviews some swear by it. The interesting part is that even if you have back pain, you wear this product below the knees.
Item 4 is one of those cool ergonomic desks that you can rise if you want to stand up when using the computer. Great for back pain sufferers. We all love our computers but sitting for too long can really be damaging to anyone and even more to someone with chronic back pain.

Since we are talking about coping, here are my picks for best books about coping with disability and how to live a creative life even if you have to live it from your bed or recliner:
Books about Filing for Disability
I recently wrote a post about the 5 best books about filing for Disability (click the link to check it out). In the post, I also mention my book Real Tactics For Filing Your Disability Claim.
In the book, you will learn the ins and outs of filing your Social Security Disability Claim. This book was created for those claimants who wish to learn more about the process in language they can understand.
You will also learn how to read your medical records so you can see if they are supporting your claim, and learn how to organize your file so you never lose track of your treatment.
Finally, I offer an exclusive Facebook group just for the book where you can ask questions about the concepts you learned in the book.
My book is available on Amazon Kindle and paperback. Simply click on the image below and grab your copy today!
I hope you liked this post. If you know of any other products out there that you think are of great help for any type of disability, please share in the comments section.
Courses by Realtactics4disabilityclaims
If you were denied disability and you are looking to appeal with “better” evidence, I created a course about using a Residual Functional Capacity Report to add to your medical records. This is a form you can take to your doctor to complete in support of your claim. The course includes forms for physical or mental impairments and instructions on how to ask your doctor to complete them. You can take a “free sneak peek” to see if this course is for you. Click on the image below and you will be directed to the course page:
Also, if you are looking to file for disability and don’t know where to start, I created a course called the “5 Day File your Disability Claim” Guide where I teach you every step you should take to file your claim.
Simply click on the image below and it will take you directly to the course page. Take a “free sneak peek” of the first lesson to see if this course is for you.
