Top 5 Summertime Wheelchair Accessories
Summer is almost here – HOORAY! With the change of season comes different joys and challenges. Being differently-abled means your needs may be different than the average consumer. The good news is, that as accessibility awareness increases, more companies are designing fun products with your specific needs in mind. So, to help you squeeze all the joy out of summer that you can, we have compiled a list of our 5 favorite summer wheelchair accessories!
1. Versa-Brella Umbrella - Protect yourself from the sun with this clamp-on shade canopy that tilts to any angle and offers UPF 50 protection. It’s lightweight at only 1.8lbs and comes in a variety of colors.
2. Lap Tray and Storage Bag - This bag is brilliant. It hangs on the back of your wheelchair for extra storage and acts as a lap tray for those summer cookouts. You’ll be good to go, even with the flimsiest of paper plates!
3. 2-in-1 Universal Cup Phone Holder - It holds your two most important things! The cupholder liner has flexible silicone petals that create a tight hold for multiple sizes of containers. The clamp rotates 360 degrees and is adjustable to fit many different wheelchairs. Plus it holds your phone and comes in multiple colors! What’s not to love?
4. Everlasting Comfort Gel Memory Foam Wheelchair Seat Cushion - Summer often means we are spending more time outside, on less-than-smooth terrain. This seat cushion adds extra comfort to bumpy rides and is designed to keep you cool.
5. Seatbelt - Safety First!! (Or at least 5th) When traversing the outdoors it’s important to be protected from unexpected bumps and obstacles that may not be an issue inside.
With travel restrictions lifting and families gathering (after two years of social distancing), you may find your wheelchair needs changing. Our FLUX Travel wheelchairs are rugged and lightweight. They’re built to be compact, both when in use and when folded for storage. This makes them great for flying or road trips! Check them out here.
Combined with some of the fun accessories mentioned above, a FLUX Travel wheelchair may be just what your vacation needs!
