6 items designed to keep you warm this winter

Kids love the winter, they can’t wait to go sledging in the snow or skating on ice whenever they get the chance. It’s a bit different when you get older or have mobility issues, the winter becomes more of a challenge and it’s hard to see it as fun. We want you to stay warm this winter at Local Mobility so this is our list of recommended products, easy to find on our site, to keep the chills at bay.

  1. Self-heating gloves: Suffer from white finger syndrome, have poor circulation in general or simply can’t get your hands warm over the winter? Slip them into a pair of self-heating gloves and these battery-powered wonders will give your fingers a toasty glow right through the winter.
  2. Wheelchair fleece blanket: Hit the shops to do a spot of festive shopping and it won’t be long until you start to feel the chill as you sit inside your chair. Those blustery high streets can be rather chilly during the winter so give your legs a little warmth and cocoon them inside a wheelchair fleece blanket.
  3. Knee warmers: Cold affects all parts of the body and knees are no exception. Prevent joint pain in this area and insulate your legs against the cold with a pair of thermal knee warmers.
  4. Thermal socks: Cuddly socks are a must for the winter, they protect your toes from frostbite and keep your feet wonderfully warm. We sell thermal socks in packs of 7 at Local Mobility so you’ll have a pair for every day of the week and be able to keep on top of the washing.
  5. Neck warmer: It’s easy to get a crick in your neck during the colder parts of the year, this area of the body is especially sensitive to the cold. Protect your neck with a snug warmer made out of 100% acrylic and it’ll give you a great shield underneath your coat collar.
  6. Fleece Gilet: Wear a gilet when you are sweeping up leaves in the garden or pop one on inside the house to keep you warm on the coldest days of the year. Gilets are comfy to wear and they keep your upper torso warm which is just what you need when the weather is freezing outside.
