Exploring Your Options in Wheelchair Accessories
Let’s take a look at some of the options that you can choose from in order to make your life more comfortable.
Whether you choose to buy a foam, air float or gel cushion, good quality wheelchair seats are an absolute must. A well constructed and well padded seat cushion will support good posture and help prevent pressure sores and other neck and back problems that could arise because of restricted mobility.
Wheelchair ramps come in very handy when you need to hoist your wheelchair into a vehicle and even when you need to enter a home that is difficult to access because of the stairs. Depending on your particular requirements, you can either choose a portable or a semi-permanent ramp or you can get a permanent wheelchair ramp built specially for your particular location.
If you live in a duplex home, a chair lift can help you access the upper floor. There are several different types of ramps and lifts available for different situations.
These are bags that are especially built to be strapped on to the wheelchair so you do not have to keep items on your lap all the time. Unlike regular bags, these straps are sturdy and designed so that they will not fall off and get lost.
Just the thing you need so you can stay hydrated with your favorite beverage without having to hold the glass in your hand all day long.
This specially designed tray secures on with hook-and-loop Velcro straps and allows you to read, eat and work comfortably instead of having to juggle things on your lap.
These gloves have gel inserts that help cushion the palms and protect them by absorbing the vibrations.
The accessories for a traditional wheelchair would be quite different from those for an electric wheelchair or a power wheelchair so you need to first take into consideration the type of mobility vehicle you own before buying any accessories.
