Four Best Wheelchair Accessories for Wheelchair Users

Wheelchair Accessories for a More Comfortable Experience

After years of working closely with patients and individuals utilizing mobility aids, we’ve learned that life in a wheelchair can be challenging, having to rely on others for certain tasks and setting back one’s independence. Here’s where we take a look at the different add-ons for enhancing one’s wheelchair experience and making life a little easier and more comfortable.

Wheelchair Cushions

For added comfort while sitting down for extended periods, seat cushions for wheelchairs is a necessary investment. Cushions provide much-needed support by improving posture, sitting balance, while also helping to relieve/prevent sores, back pain, and muscle cramps. Explore different options like air or gel cushions that may best fit your needs.

Wheelchair Gloves

Wheelchair gloves are essential if you’re using a self-propelled wheelchair. Having gloves of good quality with padded palms is necessary to avoid a lot of potential injuries like skin irritation caused by moving the wheel of your chair around or painful blisters that hinder mobility.

Brake Extension

Brake extensions or brake lever extensions are long levers that provide additional leverage, making it easier to lock manual wheelchair brakes in place. These are especially helpful for those who lack arm strength, have limited motion, and have joint issues like arthritic hands and shoulders.

Wheelchair Trays

Wheelchair trays are great for meals, especially when table height is an issue or when there’s difficulty in transferring from wheelchair to dining chairs. They’re also perfect for doing work, projects or any other tabletop activities.

Simple wheelchair accessories can make an impact in improving the quality of life for people using wheelchairs. Find one that best suits your needs or the needs of your loved ones. Accessories that provide more comfort and safety in mobility are especially useful and can improve independence.
