Chaps-style trousers for wheelchair users

Chaps-style trousers that can be put on without having to move from the wheelchair

Description
Chaps are trousers that cover just the wearer's front and legs, not the bottom. They are closed with Velcro closures and the user can put them on while sitting. They are specially sewn to fit the wearer.

Authors comments
Chaps are easy to put on without having to get out of the wheelchair. They are the only option for the user to quickly and easily put on an extra layer to keep legs warm outdoors in winter. Since they are custom-tailored they fit perfectly in length and width.
