Features to Look for in Wheelchair Backpacks and Wheelchair Bags

Well, first of all, ordinary backpacks won’t do for us, that is why you should look for wheelchair backpack and wheelchair bags  that are designed and created by wheelchair users (because unlike normal backpacks and bags, we know what we need in a backpack, and we also know how we use our wheelchair on daily basis). Once again, normal backpacks will not cater for our daily requirements.

Depending on your choice and wants, multiple compartments that are designed to expand for a bigger space maybe ideal for you. The operational ease and easy access is better with compartmentalization, highly customized storage spaces and compartmentalized backpack designs are better if you require transporting various large items such as Laptops as they can be stored in padded cushion for safety.  Side of your wheelchair can hold water bottles, our mini pack range with quick access zips are a safe place for mobile phones and electronic devices for easy access and retrieval.

Fashionable Wheelchair Backpacks and Quality Workmanship

Our range of wheelchair bags are designed to be suitable for all tastes, for example: Our Outlaw wheelchair bag wheelchair backpack is our newest design for the wheelchair user that’s wants a modern cool look!  Our Urban Wheelchair Accessories Bag range is ideal all-rounder for that professional look.

But above all else, what is even more important is the quality of materials a wheelchair backpack manufacturer uses. That means, you either will have a wheelchair backpack or wheelchair bag that looks okay but is created using low-quality materials and workmanship, or, you can simply choose Wheelchair Gear products that looks great, and is created using top quality materials and workmanship (as we use top quality strong garments, zips and quality stitched seams which reinforce long lasting durability).

Wheelchair Accessories for Students

Imagine getting your student friend to lend you his or her backpack? How will you carry it? Would you place it on your lap? Hanging on the side of your wheelchair perhaps? As you can see, only those who understand and use wheelchairs themselves can truly understand what accessories we truly want and require as students who use a wheelchair.

Wheelchair accessories for students are in demand as these accessories are not only fashionable but they also solve various practical challenges such as ease of access and usability issues which regular items such as ordinary bags and backpacks don’t solve.

We at Wheelchair Gear believe quality; ease of access and use should be the main focus when designing accessories for wheelchair users such as ourselves, and also, style should not be forgotten because while you are on moving through school corridors, other students should be thinking “Wow, where in the world did you get that great backpack?”

Most Useful Wheelchair Accessories for Students

Although there are so many different accessories for different types of wheelchairs and all levels of education, let us now list the most common types of add-on for wheelchair users.

Wheelchair Bags and Backpacks

Fashionable, highly functional wheelchair bags and backpacks are an everyday item for students to carry almost anything required for you to take to school (books, stationary, laptops, lunch box or even a snack).

What is absolutely critical however is, usability, quality of materials used when crafting bags and backpacks, workmanship right down to the stitches and strength of thread being used and also durability.

That’s the quality difference when you purchase products from Wheelchair Gear.

Wheelchair Covers

Light weight weather guard and rain covers are usually rugged, long lasting and easy to setup, these covers protect fabric and leather padded cushions of the wheel chair as well. They can even be used for keeping dust away which often cause more cumbersome issues with our wheelchairs if parked in an open heavy traffic area.

Wheel Chair Pouches and Straps

Pouches can be detachable or designed for the sides allowing extra storage for carrying various items we need during the day especially when we are out and about. Long adjustable straps can be fastened around the seat for a firm attachment.

Customized Small Wheelchair Bags

The need to carry specialized items such as medicines, or other consumables is made easy by compartmentalized smaller wheelchair bags and pouches.

We have wide range of sizes and styles of WheelChair bags ideal for various purposes. We’d like to call them Mini Packs

Comfortable Seat Support and Back Cushions

Studying requires energy and concentration, at times, depending on the class we are at, we may be faced with long training sessions, or perhaps sitting for an important exam means that we are stationary for long periods of time, when faced with such situations, it’s best to opt for comfortable memory foam cushions (for winter seasons, anti-heating back rests are ideal) or even padded gel cushioning for such tiresome days.

Wheelchair Trays

In today’s technology driven classrooms, students have to use mobile devices such as tablets and laptops for learning. It is essential to carry these devices from one class to the next. Wheelchair trays may be ideal in such situations where you will need to use laptops, particularly depending on educational level. For example: college and university students will require the use technology devices such as laptops more often, that’s when a wheelchair tray would be the perfect accessory.

Water Bottle Holders

Yes, our mums recommend that we drink plenty of water while at school studying, and that’s where water bottle holder wheelchair accessory comes handy.

Mind you, it is important that you choose WheelChair Gear products, because when you are thirsty and want to reach for that drink of water, at least, you want your bottle to be in its place, unlike some other low-quality water bottle holder wheelchair accessories sold on the market, all our products are vigorously tested. We even have No-Slip Grip-Clip (that means: No more duct tape, wire ties or homemade devices to hang things from your wheelchair).
