Adaptions and Aids

Adaptions and Aids page hopes to make peoples everyday lives easier with cheap and easy solutions. These solutions can help with driving, sitting, bathing and to make it easier to reach items. If you have an adaption that you find useful please submit it.

There are many things which can make day to day living easier. Sometimes these are major specially constricted or adapted items like an adapted car but often imaginative use of something inexpensive and readily available can make all the difference.
