It’s a Pair with EZ-ACCESSORIES®

For individuals with limited mobility, life doesn’t slow down! Keeping on the move is an essential way to maintain independence, stay fit and improve your overall health. However, transportation can be difficult if you have no place to store vital equipment.  If your access gear is slowing you down, EZ-ACCESS has got you covered with our line of EZ-ACCESSORIES. Together, we can find the perfect pair!

Wheelchair

If you are a wheelchair user, EZ-ACCESS has a wide variety of options to keep your personal belongings safe. You can be sure to find the perfect product to fit your needs. For shopping, the Wheelchair Back is a heavy-duty solution and can be easily attached to the back of the wheelchair with adjustable straps, giving you the freedom you need to keep moving. If you need a more lightweight option, the Wheelchair Underneath Carrier can be attached underneath your chair to hold papers, books or magazines. To get the best of both worlds, our Wheelchair Pack provides a large, durable pack with deep pockets behind the wheelchair and includes outside mesh pockets. These pockets keeps your necessary items, such as a phone or tablet, handy and still provides liberal room for storage.

Scooter

Scooters and power chairs provide needed assistance for individuals with limited mobility, however, they can be inadequate when it comes to storage. To keep important items close, the Scooter & Power Chair Pack is easy to install over the back of the seat for a comfortable and secure fit. If you need even closer coverage, the Scooter Arm Tote keeps your personal belongs safely within reach.

Walker

Although baskets can be handy for storing larger items in your walker, it can be less than reliable for smaller items such as phones or keys. To add more privacy and security, EZ-ACCESS recommends the Walker Basket Liner. Not only does it come with two expandable pouches to hold larger items like beverage containers, but it also includes a zippered pocket for smaller or more personal objects. If your needs extend past a typical basket, the Walker Carryon is the functional answer to your traveling problems. Available in two styles, including a side or front mount, this spacious storage container has several individual pockets in a variety of sizes so you can easily access your belongings.

Crutches

Although crutches provide convenient assistance for a wide variety of conditions, they can also be one of the most difficult items to maneuver. Since your hands are consistently at work, carrying essential items becomes extremely difficult. For a convenient and easy solution, the Universal Crutch Pouch can be fitted to a cane or crutch to provide you with the storage you need.

Although staying on the move can come with potential obstacles for people affected by limited mobility, securing these essential products can ensure you have the peace of mind needed to stay safe no matter where life takes you.

A jacket, an oxygen tank, a book or two, some snacks, your keys… when you’re out and about in your wheelchair, figuring out where and how to stash all your items can feel like it requires a background in engineering.

Fortunately, EZ-ACCESS wheelchair accessories take the hassle out of transport with a number of organizational options. Take a look at these storage aids to figure out which one suits you best:

  • Wheelchair Underneath Carrier: Discreet storage for a quick stow-and-go outing doesn’t get much easier. Awesome for magazines, keys, wallets, and other items, this large mesh canopy hides underneath wheelchairs with the help of a nifty hanging design. As an added layer of protection, front and back flaps keep your goods from bumping out of place and instead stay safely tucked where you want them.
  • Wheelchair Back: Don’t worry about juggling jackets, magazines, snacks, and keys when you’re heading out for a shopping day. The Wheelchair Back streamlines all your items into one easily-accessible carrier, attached to the back of the chair for quick reach for both you and your caretaker. With three staggered pouches made of durable nylon, you can eliminate bulk and stay organized when you stash your items into multi-leveled, separate pockets.
  • Wheelchair Pack: When you need serious storage, this multi-use product offers room for days. Looped over the back of the wheelchair, adjustable buckle straps allow you to create a custom length for easiest access from where you sit. Big items like books, packages, and laptops stay securely in the spacious main compartment thanks to the hook and loop closure to keep your goods snugly in place. Items like newspapers, water bottles, and phones can slide into elasticized mesh pockets on the side for quick deposit and removal. This pack also doubles as a tote, so you can take it from wheelchair to carrier in a matter of seconds.
  • Wheelchair Oxygen Carrier: With extra-long adjustable straps to accommodate any wheelchair, this oxygen carrier eliminates the hassle of portable oxygen therapy. The single carrier sports a durable, lightweight nylon, and the dual carrier’s lightweight vinyl mesh comes with an added storage pocket for nasal masks and other small items.

Flying with Your Mobility Scooter or Power Chair

EZ-ACCESS has tips for flying with your mobility scooter or power chair

 

As Thanksgiving approaches later this month, millions of Americans will be taking to the country’s skies to see their loved ones. But for those with limited mobility who use wheelchairs, mobility scooters or power chairs, there are some extra challenges that accompany cross-country travel.

At EZ-ACCESS, we strive to make sure that everyone is comfortable and has access to their home. But, we also want to make sure that everyone can reach their destination for the holidays. With that in mind, we bring you some travel tips to help those with limited mobility travel easier.

  • Planning ahead: Whether you have limited mobility or you’re making plans to travel with someone with limited mobility, it’s important to think ahead. If you’re flying, be sure to make your reservation well in advance. While making the reservation, inform the booking agent that you will be traveling with a mobility scooter, wheelchair or power chair. The sooner the airline knows about your needs, the greater likelihood you’ll have fewer hassles. Be sure to confirm all your requests a couple of days before you’re scheduled to depart.
  • At the Airport: Like during the planning stages, it’s important to think ahead. That means you need to make sure to arrive at the airport early to give yourself plenty of time to get to your flight if something unexpected comes up. When checking your mobility scooter or power chair, request that it is returned to you at the gate when you arrive. Be sure to mark your name and address on any equipment and make sure it has a gate delivery tag so it is returned to you when you reach your destination.

Once you get to your destination, make sure you have arranged for transportation that will accommodate the power chair or mobility scooter. To make sure you have an easy time getting into your destination, check out our portable ramps that are easy to set up. EZ-ACCESS also has storage packs to give your power chair or mobility scooter more storage.
