Starts Saturday in some stores:
The new range will include a collapsible wheelchair and fold-up walking stick as well as devices to help remove lids from jars and turn taps.
The supermarket is also branching into the market for bathroom aids such as shower seats and raised toilet seats.
The range will be sold in 75 Asda stores from Saturday, and rolled out to more of the chain's 350 stores if it proves popular.

I say fair play to them. They are trying to 'eradicate the stigma' around disability. I can envisage children running round their stores playing sword fights with the fold-up walking sticks.

So it's not just to make money from the disabled sector then?

But as you say, fair play to them IF they can get this stuff out at a reasonable price:thumbsup:

I think not. It's giving the disabled public the right to choose what they would like. Very similair to people who wear glasses. They have the option to choose either national health(cheapies) or something more to their liking. Freedom of choice I would call it. Again it's only going to be piloted so the disabled public will decide if their is a market for it.
