Essential Accessories For Your Wheelchair

September 15, 2017 -

Have you just bought a new or replacement wheelchair from us? We hope it provides you with many years of happy use, proving the perfect mobility aid whatever your need. However, the right CareCo wheelchair accessories can make your experience that much more comfortable for your personal needs. Here is a selection of our favourites:

Wheelchair Pannier Bag

Naturally, wheelchair users need both hands to transport the things they need on a day out –whether a leisure trip or simply popping to the shops. A rucksack is impractical and a bag won’t fit too comfortably on the lap. That’s why you need a pannier bag from the range of wheelchair accessories. The Pannier Bag fits over the armrest, so you don’t have to worry about carrying it or it taking up too much room in the wheelchair. Treat it as you would a handbag, rucksack, or any other small storage parcel such as hand luggage.

Users of self-propelled wheelchairs know the dangers of getting a pinch from the moving parts and from blisters of vigorous movement. It can take its toll over time. That’s why our wheelchair accessories also include these sports gloves specially designed to use with a wheelchair. They provide superior comfort and grip when using your chair, while maintaining full control with the open fingers. The mesh provides circulation and they stay on easily with the Velcro strip. You don’t have to worry about them sliding off.  

Universal Seat Belt

Our range of wheelchair accessories are also about safety as well as convenience. You may not think you particularly need a seatbelt on a wheelchair or a mobility scooter, but if there is even the slightest risk of slipping or falling out, this will ensure comfort and security. Simply attach it to the chair and clip it around you as you would a lap belt in the back of a car. It stays in place as it affixes around the arms, ensuring stable use.

Comfi Fleece Seat Pad

The Comfi Fleece Seat Pad will make any seat more comfortable. The fleece combined with memory foam creates a soft and warm seat that is perfect for all weathers and it is backed with rubber to help keep it in place.

Universal Head Rest

Whether you require a head rest for comfort or medical reasons, the wheelchair accessories range supplies this vital addition to your wheelchair. The Universal Wheelchair Headrest will fit almost any standard wheelchair design (as long as the width is between 16” / 40cm and 22” / 55cm), so long as it has push handles. The bracket affixes across the handles and allows a surprising range of adjustments – height, width, and angle – to allow you to experience maximum comfort from the head rest.
