Fashionable Wheelchair Accessories & Wheelchair Bags
The majority of wheelchair users (58.8 percent) are women. Women today are going to choose a wheelchair that not only functions well for them, but also is more attractive in terms of color, trim, etc. if they can find them. Devices for younger girls and women clearly stand out if they are in bright colors. Here at HDS Medallion, we're starting to see more and more solid colors at least. Regardless of the chair, more and more women are rejecting the concept that being in a chair means little fashion.
Now her device can be accessorized with items she deems important, including pretty carryall bags, stylish totes and fashionable adaptive clothing if necessary. Disabled women are tired of being seen as objects of sympathy or even courage and are doing everything they can to spruce up their wheelchairs to draw attention to their femininity and personal style, not their disability. These wheelchair handbags' looks are just as important to the disabled women's self image as traditional purses are to able bodied women, if not more so. As one of our stylish customers explained, "if you can't stand up, you must stand out!"
As most women know, there are thousands of regular purses available, but do they work on wheelchairs? The answer is rarely. Enter the growing market of wheelchair accessories being led by the new realm of stylish and chic wheelchair bags. Any woman will tell you that no outfit is complete without the right purse and this goes for wheelchair users too.
In the last two years, it is far easier to find an attractive walker bag designed to work on walkers and rollators. However, only a few manufacturers such as HDS Medallion, are designing and selling high quality, stylish carryall bags that can be attached to wheelchairs, power chairs, medical scooters and other mobility devices. You can count the sellers on one hand!
