Elevated Leg Rests

There are numerous reasons for your health professional to specify elevated leg rests (ELRs). The most common is oedema (swelling). This can be caused by injury or a pre-existing condition. Elevating your legs takes the pressure off the veins making the natural flow of blood much easier and can help reduce inflammation. It’s important to follow the advice of your health professional in this respect and to ensure your seating position is correct. When using ELRs, take care manoeuvring the wheelchair as not only will the natural balance be altered, but it’s all too easy to catch or snag the elevated limb on furniture, doorways or even unsuspecting members of the public! At MobShop, we offer a range of elevated leg rests which are compatible with most wheelchairs. If you’re unsure which ELR to buy, Give us a call on 0800 0855 595 or drop us a line at Hello@mobilityshop.co.uk and we’ll help you make the right choice.
