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.
