Main Document

"Like Wheelchair Slippers, Wheelchair Socks have a special material inside the wheelchair tire cover to grip onto the tire and prevent slippage."

Many wheelchair users and their families struggle with wheelchair tires leaving dirt, marks, scuffs and scratches on floors and carpets. Outside dirt and germs can leave floors messy and dirty. Wheelchair tires can damage expensive carpets and flooring.

For nearly a decade RehaDesign's Wheelchair Slippers have been helping wheelchair users by covering the rear wheelchair wheels. But wheelchair users have asked for a solution for the small wheelchair caster wheels in the front. Now the solution is available.

RehaDesign Wheelchair Socks go on the wheelchair caster wheels easily and quickly.

They can be put on while seated in the wheelchair or while outside of the wheelchair as can be shown in this video:
