Bag on wheelchair

A practical bag for wheelchair users. The user can keep an eye on the bag at the same time that it keeps the user's feet in place.

Description
The bag sits on the user's feet and is attached around the calves and the wheelchair's leg supports. The straps that go around the calf and let support are padded and attached by the assistive device center.

Authors comments
On a trip to Spain Conny started using an ordinary hip pack to keep an eye on his wallet. He discovered that the pack also held his feet in place. Since the hip pack was too small he bought a larger bag and asked Hjälpmedelcentralen (assistive device center) to modify it. Padding takes the pressure off the backs of his calves.
