Wheelchair Accessories: Bags and Carry Pouches

Wheelchair bags are very practical and useful accessories. These bags are specially designed to be attached to the back or side of the wheelchair, unlike regular bags that the user would have to keep on their lap. Regular bags don’t have the proper straps like the wheelchair bad, and they can easily fall or get misplaced.

Another useful accessory is the wheelchair seat cushion, which is a must have for users who require extra lumbar support. One of the big problems wheelchair users have is back pain and a good cushion will help to alleviate this problem and keep the rider comfortable at the same time.

Other Accessories

They cover the full body and will keep the user warm. There are available in a number of comfortable, soft materials in a variety of styles.

Wheelchair Accessories for Safety
