Attachment on wheelchair

A holder on the wheelchair is practical for attaching various objects – suitable for persons with impaired hand function

Description
On the front of the wheelchair armrest is a holder used for various objects, such as binoculars or as a holder for the urine tube, see associated tips. Previously the user even used the holder for going out with the dog. He placed a stick in the holder and draped the leash over it.

Authors comments
The wheelchair attachment was a standard accessory on the user's old wheelchair, a Permobil Super 90. The chair had a stand function and the purpose of the holder was to attach an extra belt.
