There are many accessories one can get for their wheelchair, to make use and daily life easier. Here is our top ten choices for must have accessories (in no particular order).


1. Wheelchair Cushions:  Great for providing added comfort and support to seats and backs, wheelchair cushions can also help reduce the risk of sores and pressure ulcers for those who spend greater amounts of time in a wheelchair.
