Mobility Products Shop Stoke on Trent

Castle Comfort  is the region's favourite mobility products shop offering a range of daily living aids to suit every budget. Established in 1997, Castle Comfort is a great help for many people in the Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and Shropshire (Salop) areas, as it is so easy to get to, and offers free parking right by the door - which is pretty rare these days with town centres being difficult to get your car anywhere near -and parking charges being far to high.

If you are in need of a mobility aid to help with your independence at home you don't want to have to tackle pavements or have to walk far in order to have a good look round.

For local people we even offer a door to door pickup service by our friendly staff, and can also arrange for an in-home demonstration of a riser recliner chair or stairlift if you would like us to arrange that.

Please call us on 08000 832 797 to enquire about how we can help you.

Our mobility shop sells top branded quality mobility aids like walking sticks, walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, riser recliner chairs, adjustable beds, bathing aids and stairlifts. For a detailed account of which mobility products we can help with go here-  We also offer an advisory service for other daily living aids like raised toilet seats and commodes, grab handles, wide fit slippers, zimmer frames and other assorted items and equipment including those required for incontinence.

Here is some info on the zimmer frame, if you are looking for one in Stoke on trent.

Zimmer frames
At Comfort Centre Mobility Products in Newcastle under Lyme,  we are always delighted when  folks come to see us and leave with a smile on their faces. Sometimes they leave laughing their socks off (even disabled socks.) Why? Because we share the same building as one of the principle doctors´practices in Wolstanton Village. Often, after visiting the doctor, and maybe being given further medicine or a reminder that they are ´not as young as they used to be' people pop in to see what we have on offer.

Regular visitors to Stoke on Trent´s most well-known mobility products store, know that at least they get a cuppa!  But ... does a cuppa alone make them laugh? No - WE DO..  see this ............

Amusement is especially guaranteed if  our beloved and highly respected Doctor Stirling is around.  Please see Dr S's life story here, to refresh memories up with a few of the remarkable things that have gone on in his  86 years. Many of his former patients are unaware of some of the facts about the life of this very special medic. 
Also, a  take  a quick our cartoon website, then you´ll believe Dr S´s claim  100%  that indeed...  'laughter is the best medicine.'
If further evidence of humour being a vital ingredient of a happy old age, then just look at this photo here ..

Do you know about blow up Zimmer frames! One was brought in to our Staffordshire mobility showroom by one of our clients some years ago,  a lady who herself uses a walking frame.  A touch tired of her grandchildren begging for a 'quick go' of Nan´s 'aid to safe transport' - she bought one for them to amuse themselves with. 

THE MANUFACTURERS DO STRESS, HOWEVER,  THAT AN INFLATABLE ZIMMER FRAME IS A NOVELTY ITEM AND NOT FOR USE AS A TOY.  At Wolstanton we intend to keep one on show, but they are a little hard to get, and amused visitors buy them from us at cost price (a modest three pounds each) as fast as we can get them.
The instructions curiously advise -  'Ideal for the decrepit and all washed up. Please drive carefully.'
But whilst most in need of  Zimmer frames may not feel too amused about the subject, we hope a little chuckle may boost the spirits.

Please call us for fast and courteous help whatever your personal requirements. We are always glad to help.

Below are a couple of testimonial videos's from past repeat customers of Castle Comfort who have both decided that we are the firm to deal with when it comes to buying different daily living aids in Stoke on Trent.


  1. That massage chair looks wonderful and it seems like the lady uses it for mobility reasons every day.
    What price can I get one of those for?

  2. Yes, it is very comfortable and soothing for mobility complaints. We occasionally get massage chairs through as ex-demonstration models which are surprisingly affordable. Why not visit our mobility shop and try one out for yourself?

  3. Do massage chairs just massage the back ? or is it possible to get a neck or leg massage included ?

    1. All our massage chairs include a comprehensive programme that covers specific areas of the body.
      Some of our massage chairs have programmes where just the neck or legs are selected. So yes, Cheshire Golfer, there is a lot of choice and flexibility - just call us on 01782 611411 or pop in to our Newcastle under Lyme showrooms for further explanation and a trial.

  4. Nice info - we didn't know you could help as much as you do with th smaller mobility aids and gadgets that are around. My auntie has found the mobility stairlift and mobility chair great. Now I'll tell her to let me know (as she still doesn't speak, after twenty years in the UK, much English!) if she needs these things like grab handles, a raised toilet seat or maybe a zimmer frame. Thanks. - Ruben

    1. Your comments are appreciated, Ruben. A further response to this one follows below in Spanish, which we hope will be of interest to your aunt.
      We can put your aunt in touch with supplier of common mobility aids we know are in demand such
      as -
      a commode, (temporary or fixed furniture standard commodes) crutches, Zimmer frames, slippers for problematic feet, a can opener for arthritis sufferers, phones with large buttons, cot sides, grab handles, wheelchair hire, stools for showers, raised toilet seats, holders for car disabled passes, outdoor key boxes and cushions for wheelchairs, dillonguards, back scratchers etc.

      But there are also thousands of mobility/disability items that are not quote as common and not so obvious - and listed here are just a few ‘CANNOT’ situations that for an older or disabled person – need a solution.


      If someone .....

      Can't pick up and hold a mugs of coffee with either hand.
      Cannot turn or control those knobs on a cooker with their hands
      Cannot pick up or carry a pints of milk or squeeze the excess water from a sponge

      Cannot see well enough to recognise a friend across the street

      To sum up - a simple inexpensive mobility or home aid product can make the world of difference

      to someone who has even the slightest incapacity due to age or illness.

    2. Sus comentarios son apreciados, Rubén. Podemos poner a su tía en contacto con el proveedor de ayudas para la movilidad comunes que conocemos hay tanta demanda
      como -
      un inodoro, (temporales o fijos inodoros estándar de muebles) muletas, andadores, zapatillas para los pies problemáticos, un abrelatas para los enfermos de artritis, teléfonos con botones grandes, caras cuna, asideros, alquiler de sillas de ruedas, sillas de ducha, asientos elevados para inodoro, los titulares de pases minusválidos, al aire libre cajas principales y cojines para sillas de ruedas, dillonguards, rascadores de espalda, etc

      Pero también hay miles de productos de movilidad / discapacidad que no se citan como común y no tan obvio - y aquí son sólo unos pocos "no puede" situaciones que para una persona de edad avanzada o discapacitados - necesitan una solución.


      Si alguien .....

      No se puede ver lo suficientemente bien como para reconocer a un amigo al otro lado de la calle

      Para resumir, - una movilidad sencilla de bajo costo o producto ayuda en casa puede hacer un mundo de diferencia

      a alguien que tenga el más mínimo incapacidad por edad o enfermedad.

  5. Can I drive right to your door and park for free?

    1. Yes you can. We have a ramp right into the showroom and can wheel you in in a wheelchair if walking is difficult.

  6. You made me laugh with your inflatable zimmer frame!

    1. That is the idea Yolanda, laughter is the best medicine and folk needing mobility aids (whether a zimmer frame or not) need just that!
      A disability or phyisical restriction due to illness, or age, is often not curable .. so LAUGHTER IS LONGEVITY.
      Long live laughter .. & stay mobile

  7. 'Zimmer' sounds almost an Argentine surname (I originate from there) - well certainly not someone from Stoke on Trent. Blow up zimmer frames ... I guess, come from your Staffordshire sense of dry humour Castle Comfort -very good to make mobility customers smile a bit. But who was Mr or Mrs Zimmer? And when was this magical walking frame invented?

  8. I think that Zimmer were the company who invented the magic walking frame - and I think there maybe a blog about this by Castle Comfort Centre somewhere !
