Users comments
The rain poncho protects against rain, snow, wind, and cold. It also protects any items wheelchair users may have on their lap, such as a mobile phone. Conny always has it with him whenever he goes out. Conny has not tested operating a power-driven wheelchair with chin control with the poncho on, but he thinks it should work.
