In the world of mobility devices Rifton has just discovered in color in the past year and wheelchair companies are still embroidering the users name where no one will see it when the user is in the chair (that has never made sense to me).
Thus the need to accessorize. Here are a few cool items to check out and pass on to your students parents when it comes time for birthdays and other gift giving events or just anytime at all. Accessories are a great way to let an individual shine through there equipment.
Thomas Fetterman offers loftstrand crutch users lycra crutch covers in a variety of colors including ocelot. These are created by Broken Beauties which offers similar covers for ancillary crutches and designer walkers.
Allman Products has a leopard print walker bag. 1800Wheelchair has a couple of bags that aren't all together ugly as does Canes Galore.
Okay, I'm going to be honest. This has been an altogether depressing post to research and write. I started it because I ran into a former student who was sporting some cool crutch skins . Now I am realizing "cool" accessories are pretty much non-existent outside of those skins. Perhaps there is someone who will read this who will invent something very cool. If so, please let me know!
P.S. That has happened to me before. I also run a diabetes and insulin pumping website and have a tee-shirt to my credit in addition to some grateful pump carrying case companies. So have hope, maybe in a year or two cool accessories will emerge.
