At some point most of us will rely on a device to stay healthy, or for help in our daily life. We might need glasses, contact lenses or a hearing aid to help us see or hear. Crutches, a wheelchair or a stair lift might help us get around more easily. Some of us will need breathing equipment such as a nebuliser or portable oxygen tanks to stay healthy. In future more of us will use wearable technology to manage our fitness or to keep a check on a medical condition.
It can add up to a lot of expensive equipment for your health and well-being, so it pays to check that you are covered in case of theft or damage.
Cover is included for a wide range of devices that support your health and mobility:
