You spoke and we listened. After attending the NY-Metro Abilities Expo earlier this month it became very apparent to us that people who use wheelchairs, power chairs and scooter love our designer carryall bags although some were under the impression the bags are simply for senior women. While we did have the senior market in mind when first launching our Classic Collection Carryall Bags, we quickly realized that many people using mobility devices can also benefit from having a stylish bag to carry personal belongings including younger women, men, teenagers and children.
We were excited to unveil our Premier Carryall Bags at the Expo and now we are looking forward to even more designs that will expand the HDS MEDALLION® Premier Collection. The Premier bags were a big hit due to the fact that the detachable and adjustable straps can be configured into various arrangements that can make the bags fit thick and thin armed power chairs, manual and electric wheelchairs, transport wheelchairs and even walkers. They can even be converted into a shoulder bag with this unique strap system. It was wonderfully affirming to see the psychological lift that many women experienced as they selected their favorite Premier Bag that reflected their own unique styles.
In addition, the versatility of the Premier Carryall Bags and the requests we received at the expo got us to thinking about how carryall bags could be used by younger people, men and even children who have to use a medical mobility device either temporarily for rehabilitation or permanently due to a debilitating condition or disease.
While making life easier for seniors remains important for us, we also want to explore the opportunities to assist disabled people who have to use wheelchairs, power chairs, walkers and mobility scooters. Everyone has their important belonging they want to take with them when using a mobility device including cell phones, wallets, makeup, cameras, tablets or PC’s, water bottles and medications if necessary and designing a carryall bag that can accommodate professional and younger women, teenage girls, men and young children is definitely in our future.
