Wheelchair & Scooter Clothing

Clothing for wheelchair and mobility scooter users. We supply wheelchair clothes like special gloves, an extensive range of weather protective garments, along with leg protectors and hand warmers. Rain covers for scooter and wheelchair storage are also available here. While Essential Aids’ range features lightweight wheelchair clothing, UK winters also necessitate warm fleece linings, so we also supply these mobility aids in various styles. We have raincoats which cover just the upper body, through to longer versions which protect the user from head to toe. Weatherproof mobility scooter clothing is similar to that for wheelchairs but the hands and arms are always kept free in order to facilitate the use of the vehicle’s controls.

One or two mobility scooter capes are designed to fit over the scooter's controls, as well as the user's body.

This provides thorough protection from the rain, while also enabling someone to operate the mobility scooter.

Sleeved or unsleeved - ponchos are available without sleeves or slits for the hands and arms.

Leg covers or wraps - these items protect the lower half of the body.

Sometimes the protection extends right down to cover the feet, depending on the design.

While some versions of the leg protectors fit fairly tightly around the lower body, others drape in a looser style.

This has the benefit of being easy to get out of when you leave the wheelchair or mobility scooter.

Lined or unlined wheelchair clothing - while some clothing for wheelchair users is relatively thin rain-wear, some items have warm, fleecy linings.

Hand muffs - wam, tubular pieces of insulated material, keeping hands warm on cold days.

Is head-to-toe wheelchair clothing available?

There are some items which almost act like sleeping bags, covering the user from top to bottom.

In many cases, these have zips at the front and the user steps into the garment when it is already open in the chair.

The zip is then done up and the person is left snug inside.

Are covers available for my legs when I'm using my wheelchair?
