Synopsis: Kitchen mobility aids are usually small and often relatively basic items but can make life a lot easier for persons with disabilities. Wheeled trolleys enable you to take items to and from the kitchen, can help with walking, and can also be used in other rooms as well. A kettle tipper is a device that supports the weight of the kettle in a cradle and enables the kettle to be tipped, so that the user doesn't have to take the weight of the kettle.
