Wheelchairs have been helping those with disabilities for many years now. They are designed to replace the use of the legs and are used by those who can’t use their legs for walking or are unable to do so for different reasons. If you go back in history, wheelchairs have been around since ancient times.
The modern wheelchair was developed by two mechanical engineers who were friends, namely Harry Jennings and Herbert Everest. Since then, many technological advances have been added to today’s modern wheelchairs.
No Caregiver Needed
The many technological advances have given rise to various kinds of wheelchairs including the electrically powered wheelchairs which don’t need anyone besides the user for mobility.
Most people still prefer to use the manually propelled wheelchairs, but the electrically powered wheelchairs are becoming increasingly popular because of the convenience they provide.

Wheelchairs are constantly improving and so are the accessories that go with them. Those who have a disability often spend lots of time in their wheelchair, therefore adding accessories to improve the overall convenience would be very helpful to the user.
People in wheelchairs often have a tough time attending to their own needs; therefore it is necessary for them to have what they might need within arm’s reach.
