Living Life In A Wheelchair

Mail Ordered Supplies To Make Accessory Bags For My Power Wheelchair
[ Saturday August 19th 2017 at 11:58 pm ]

Today I mail ordered supplies from Asian countries for my next power wheelchair accessory. I am going to make 3 canvas bags that will be very helpful going to the gym each weeknight. After another setback on Friday evening in my right knee joint I needed to think through what else would be helpful to me.

  • The first bag will carry my crutches
  • The second bag will carry the 3 tools I need to dress myself when any of my hips, knees or spine are very stiff or painful
  • The third bag will carry my bathing suit and towel

I am going to use buckle clips for attaching and removing these from my wheelchair. These will act like extra pairs of hands. I will be able to add several of the "male" end of the buckle clips to my wheelchair using the 3/8" grommets, bolts, washers and nylon insert locking nuts.

I learned how to use a sewing machine when I was 7 years old. My grandmother taught me after healing from my major Legg Perthes disease hip surgery when I was 5 years old.
