Help is just around the corner

INSPIRED to help, Natwar Singh started his business of import, wholesale and retail of patient aid equipment after years of looking after his elderly mother.

When she passed away in 2010 at the age of 92, Mr Singh was driven to set up shop. "She had a fractured hip. And things were quite expensive," Mr Singh said.

That's where Nats Sports shop was founded. Located in Sigatoka, they sell wheel— chairs of a wide range, adult diapers and crutches to name the least. Other items on sale include tall walkers, walking sticks, elbow crutches, shower chairs and first aid kits. Goods are supplied to major pharmacies and supermarkets in Fiji. Commode wheelchairs have additional features which allow users to use it as a toilet. Rollators are ideal for those who tire easy when walking as it allows users to sit easy.

The walker with wheels are suited for stroke patients as it enables them to move from one point to another as a form of exercise. These and more are in—store.
