Wheelchair gloves

Individually manufactured gloves used for transfers (to or from wheelchair) and when operating the wheelchair.

Authors comments
The user often uses the gloves, both when he transfers to and from the wheelchair and when operating the wheelchair. He replaces them as needed, about 2-3 pairs of gloves a year. The gloves are sewn for the user and made at the assistive device center.
