The Wheelchair Poncho: A Spring Essential
It’s almost spring, and you know what they say: April showers bring May flowers. Don’t get caught unprotected in this year’s April showers. If you or a loved one is in a wheelchair, then the summer wheelchair poncho is right for you!
1. What is the difference between a summer and winter wheelchair poncho?
The summer poncho is designed so that you don’t get too hot. It has a lightweight cotton lining that will keep you comfortable without causing you to overheat. The winter poncho has a warm sherpa lining that is excellent during the cold months. It will keep you warm like you are wrapped in a soft, comfortable blanket. However, in the summer you may prefer the lightweight version.
· Our Poncho is Easy to Use
This poncho is super easy to use! There is a zipper in the front of the poncho near the hood that allows you to adjust how much coverage the poncho is giving you. It is a pullover style poncho, so you pull it over your head to wear it. That way, it is easy to take off and put back on again.
It is also machine washable! You do not have to do anything special to keep this poncho clean. You can just wash it with your other clothing.
2. How is this poncho different from a standard poncho?
Our Wheelchair Poncho is designed with you in mind. Fumbling with a standard size poncho is annoying, and it won’t protect your chair. Our poncho is designed with a short back so that the fabric will not get caught in the wheels of a wheelchair. It has an easy zipper closure in the front by the hood. It also ensures your whole body will be covered, so you can still enjoy the outdoors or a vacation, even if it starts to rain.
· We Have a Variety of Colors
Clothing can be an expression of yourself, and we understand that. This is why we carry the poncho in a variety of different colors. We have Navy, Black, Forest, Pink, and Burgundy.
