Description
A transistor radio hangs from the wheelchair armrest. It is fitted with a loop and anti-slip material on the bottom.
A mini speaker (photo no. 3) is connected to the radio. The speaker is attached with Velcro straps and sits on the wheelchair frame where it is protected.

Users comments
It is important for the radio to be positioned in a way that enables the user to pick it up onto the armrest so that he can turn it on and off and change channels himself.
