There are several wheelchair accessories which you can purchase to make your experience more safe, comfortable and convenient. From cold weather clothing to seatbelts and storage bags, we want to make sure that you can be as independent as you want to be.
Wheelchair Mac with Sleeves
This waterproof, full-length cape with zip closure, hood and sleeves is great at keeping you dry in rainy weather. The elasticated base provides a closer weatherproof fit, while the thick, padded lining keeps the user warm and snug against the conditions.
The knitted cuffs on the sleeves give the user additional comfort, retaining heat at the same time as preventing draughts. Vents at the rear of the mac allow use of the wheelchair’s pushing handles and a small pouch at the front provides handy storage.
The mac is easy to put on and take off, and folds into a compact size for easy storage when not in use.
This quilted nylon cover provides excellent warmth and outdoor protection from showers. It has a fully washable lining which is completely draught proof, and elastic loops which fit over the handles to keep the cover securely in place.
Coverall with Sleeves
The coverall with sleeves offers great protection from the weather and the elasticated cuffs make it draught-proof, providing greater independence for people who want to propel themselves. Includes hood as standard.
Coverall without Sleeves
This fully showerproof nylon coverall provides full protection in all weather conditions. The hood is easy to put on and take off, with elastic around the back, feet and a neck line zip. Slots in the back for the handles allow full carer control. Available in blue or maroon.
The lap belt is available for use with wheelchairs to provide additional support and stability and to keep the user’s hips and pelvis towards the back of the chair. Must not be used in vehicles travelling in excess of 8mph.
The belt is easily fitted to the backrest of the wheelchair and adjusts easily in length to suit different user sizes. It fastens around the waist with a double adjustable snap lock fastener, which is easily released in an emergency.
Vinyl and Canvas Cushions
Made of 5cm (2”) thick foam covered with waterproof, easy to clean vinyl or soft-touch canvas, this cushion provides added comfort for a wheelchair user if they are sitting in the chair for long periods. Velcro strips are attached underneath the canvas cushion, holding it in position on the seat. Available in four different widths.
This pressure-reducing cushion is designed to assist in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. The viscous gel provides maximum support and comfort, and the cover has a waterproof nylon top and non-slip vinyl bottom, which are easy to clean. The carry handle in the bottom facilitates easy transportation.
Available in three different thicknesses depending on user comfort requirements.
Mobility Pannier Bag
This pannier bag is perfect for keeping personal items close to hand. It fits to the outside or inside of most wheelchair, scooter and powerchair arm pads, using a strong velcro fastening for extra security, though it can also be used as a handy carry bag with a detachable shoulder strap. The bag is easily accessible, with two zippered compartments and two net pockets.
Compact Mobility Bag
Ideal for transporting and storing personal items, this compact holdall can be easily installed on the back of your wheelchair using the quick release straps. The bag boasts an easily accessible zippered compartment with front and back mesh pockets. Made of a lightweight, durable material, it is easy to transport using the attached carry handle.
Available in fingerless and full hand varieties, these gloves come in four sizes: S, M, L, XL. They were designed by wheelchair users, so you know every angle has been considered. The gloves have padded palms for better grip and protection, and elasticated cuffs securely closed with a hook and loop tab.
