Wheelchair Accessories to Pimp Your Ride

 

Tired of boring mobility devices? We’ve got the ultimate guide to wheelchair accessories to make life easier while transforming you into a style icon. 

When you hear the word wheelchair, what are the first images that come to mind? If you’re like many people, you probably imagine one of those old hospital wheelchairs that seems to fit everyone and no one at the same time. Metal. Bulky. Ugly. Depressing.

Mobility aids have come a long way in the past 20 years, and it’s much easier to find rollators in bright colors and canes with beautiful patterns on them. However, there are still far too many unattractive mobility devices being made and pushed on people who are already in shock as they newly come to terms with having a life-changing disability. It doesn’t have to be that way. Wheelchairs can be fashionable, and style icons like Jillian Mercado, Aaron Rose Philip, and Lauren “Lolo” Spencer prove it.

Whether you are new to life in a wheelchair or just want to give your mobility device a makeover, these stylish and useful wheelchair accessories are the perfect way to pimp your ride.

Wheelchair Accessories – Heating and Cooling

Many wheelchair users have difficulty regulating our temperature due to circulation and autonomic dysfunction. If you’re always hot or always cold (or both) these useful wheelchair accessories can help you stay comfortable in all kinds of weather.
