Gary B – Wheelchair Hoody

USERS RATING:
(Based on the users needs, lifestyle and preferences.)

Item Description:
A backless oversized hoodie made of fleece, which is both comfortable and cosy to wear. Designed to allow the user to stay positioned in their wheelchair, the partial back also makes it easy to slip on over the head,
put arms into sleeves, and go over a seatbelt or harness.

Personal Opinion:
My son has a very moulded wheelchair seat, making it very hard to find a jacket that was warm and not too bulky to slide / stuff down his back. Thankfully this product goes on very easily and provides enough coverage on the back to keep his shoulders, neck, and top of back warm. The hood is also great, especially if you’ve forgotten a hat. I also like the way it can go over his chest strap so that it’s not on show. You can even put the strap through the back/inside, which is a great way to keep it in place.

He always stays warm when wearing it, but the best feature is the way it looks – I love it! My son is nearly 18 and has a brother who is a year older and rarely wears a coat, mostly hoodies. So, it’s great that I could get something similar for him to wear that doesn’t compromise on functionality and isn’t a struggle to get on.

Gary B Wheelchair Accessories also sell other products designed specifically for people living with disabilities, including blankets, bibs and mittens. As always, they are lovely, warm, and easy to get on/off. The mittens are particularly great as the backless hoody has cuffs on the end of each sleeve that keeps them in place.
