Lower leg protection for thin skin. - Carers UK Forum

Lower leg protection for thin skin.

Share your ideas about the practical side of caring.
I just wanted to share something I recently discovered which might help others.
I needed something to protect mum's shins when I hoisted her up as she faces the bars and has a tendency to 'swing' her self when up in the air.

I found something called 'Wikkies', they are padded leg protectors which wrap around the leg and fasten with velcro. http://www.wikkieslegprotectors.com/

Another thing I did was to get car roof rack protectors and cut them to the size I place them around the bars of the hoist for added protection. My timing was spot on as I banged my head on them but with the protection on the bars it hardly registered.

I pulled them out of the covers and cut them to size. They cut very easily. I had a bit left over and used that on the bottom of a chair leg which I'm always stubbing my toe on.

Scruffy.
