June is a month that kicks off summer and the heat is in full force. You are trying to figure out ways to stay cool in your wheelchair and beat the heat. Not only does EZ-ACCESS specialize in ramps of all kinds, but we have come up with ways for you to stay cool in a wheelchair.
Sometimes it can be frustrating to be in a wheelchair when the sun is beating down, but you don’t want to miss out on the fun summer activities. Even on the hottest of days, you can enjoy the sun as long as you take proper measures to stay cool and beat the heat.
Staying hydrated is first and foremost the best thing you can do for yourself during the hottest of days. While in your wheelchair, it may get irritating to constantly have to reach in your bag for that bottle of water or have it sitting by you. Although irritating, it is important to always drink water because staying hydrated is important to your health. A great way to stop the irritation of having your water bottle sitting next to you all the time is to get the Underneath Carrier for your wheelchair from EZ-ACCESS.
A few ways to stay cool in a wheelchair are to cover the arm rests, sit on a towel or pillow for comfort, or carry a mist fan. By covering the arm rests, you will keep the sun from beating on the dark colored power chair. You can also cool off by having a cold towel on your neck for relief from the summer heat. Are you now wondering where you would store all of these items when they are not in use? Try the Wheelchair Pack to store anything from cooling solutions to your favorite book.
EZ-ACCESS takes a special interest in your safety and wellbeing. We see the importance of finding ways to stay cool in a wheelchair. Always staying hydrated is essential to keeping cool and having cooling solutions with you at all times in your wheelchair’s storage bag can make time spent outside in the summer heat more enjoyable.
We hope these ideas to stay cool in a wheelchair were helpful because we want you to be as comfortable as possible while making memories outside at the park, with the family, or in anywhere you go this summer.
