Wheelchair rain cover
The manufacturer of a specialist buggy does not offer a raincover, leaving our client vulnerable to the elements.
A bespoke support frame was made to support a commercially available universal buggy rain cover to provide the needed weather protection. The support was made from an adjustable bracket sold to attach an umbrella holder to a buggy. It was attached to the wheelchair at the existing headrest support at one end and to a light weight plywood board at the other, to support the plastic rain cover. The design means it can be easilly transfered to another wheelchair as the client grows.
