Wheelchair users often face a major inconvenience during rainy days and that is to undertake the dual task of moving their wheelchairs and holding up an umbrella to prevent themselves from getting wet. Manual wheelchair users simply have to stay where they are as them will not have extra hand to hold aloft an umbrella when pushing their own wheelchairs. Electric wheelchair users may find it easier to hold the umbrella, however, it will be too tiring for the hands after a while. In some cases, the wheelchair users may not have the capacity to hold an umbrella at all. Even with the assistance of caregivers, covering both wheelchair user and assistant will be awkward due to the difference in heights.
This week we feature the Bag Boy Umbrella Holder.
Made of tough sturdy materials and suitable for all outdoor conditions.

The Wheelchair Umbrella Holder comes in very handy during rainy or hot shiny days. You can attach an umbrella easily to the holder. The umbrella holder can either be clip or clamp on to the armrest or frame of the wheelchair. It fits tightly to prevent the umbrella from shaking or falling off during movement.
