Why YOU Need a Wheelchair Cosy

Why YOU Need a Wheelchair Cosy

The sun’s well and truly gone away, and now we are left with miserable, damp, and very cold weather. It seems we can all kiss our sun-filled weekends frolicking in the park away until next year.

Nevertheless, life goes on and we still have to get out and about, but these dreadful conditions are especially difficult for wheelchair users who are simply just trying to go about their day.

Well, Ability Superstore are glad to inform you of a great solution to keep warm and dry wherever you may be: Wheelchair Cosies!

What is a Wheelchair Cosy?

Wheelchair Cosies, Wheelchair Ponchos, Wheelchair Aprons and Wheelchair Covers, (whatever you might want to call them!) are specially designed coverings that provide warmth and protection for wheelchair users.

Designed with ease of use and convenience in mind, you simply pop your lower half in, zip up and we’ve got you covered - quite literally!

Our wheelchair cosies have luxuriously warm and comfortable fleece lined inners, trapping heat to keep the wearer warm in colder weather.

As well as a cosy fleece interior, our wheelchair cosies also have very handy waterproof outers to wick away any moisture or raindrops in soggier weather.

This means, when paired with your big coat, it’ll stop your chances from shivering!

Why use a Wheelchair Cosy?

During colder, wetter seasons, the risks associated with exposure to the elements become more pronounced. For individuals with limited mobility, maintaining a comfortable body temperature is not just a matter of comfort; it's essential for their health and well-being.

Prolonged exposure to cold and damp conditions can lead to discomfort, increased susceptibility to respiratory issues, and even exacerbate existing health conditions. This is particularly true for those with conditions like arthritis or circulatory problems, where temperature sensitivity is heightened.

In these conditions, a wheelchair cosy acts as a barrier against the chill, providing an extra layer of insulation to keep users warm. By preventing heat loss and maintaining a stable body temperature, the cosy helps alleviate the discomfort associated with cold weather.

If you’ve seen a wheelchair cosy before, you’ve probably noticed that most of them on the market only come in one standard colour: navy. However, at Ability Superstore we've been hard at work designing some exclusive colour options for wheelchair cosies in the hopes of brightening up your life!
