Backpack for Wheelchair Users | Best Bags for the Back of your Wheelchair | Pro Tips | SCI Ontario

If you want to learn more about modifying a backpack for wheelchair users, and the best bags for the back of your wheelchair, this video is for you. SCIO – Spinal Cord Injury Ontario is a registered Canadian charity, established to inspire organizations and individuals to learn about issues relating to living with a spinal cord injury, and to take philanthropic action to effect change.

For a wheelchair user, it can be difficult to get an off-the-shelf backpack that suits your needs. I have found that I can do modifications to ensure that I can use any bag I want. If I didn’t need any modifications, I would have so many more choices. There are plenty of backpacks and bags of all shapes and sizes that you can get off-the-shelf, either in shops or online. However, if you need modifications like I do, your options become much more limited.

It’s important to consider the SIZE of the bag. For example, the length can’t be too long so as to drag on the ground and the width can’t be too wide so as to scrape on the wheels. Additionally, as I mention in this video, the straps need to be a stretchy, flexible and malleable material.

There are many ways to modify a backpack for wheelchair users. One of them is to attach a strap on the back of the pack to hold it in place. Another way is to attach a belt or strap on the side of the pack so that it can be pulled over one shoulder and then cross over the chest and under the opposite arm. I’ve found that the best way to modify a backpack for wheelchair users is by making sure that it has the right width straps and buckles with easy-to-reach adjustments, that are positioned towards the front of the pack so they can be reached from behind.

When someone is in a wheelchair, they need to use their hands to move the chair. This means that they can’t carry things with them. A common solution is to use a backpack that can be worn on the front of their body and allows them to keep their hands free. Modifying a backpack for wheelchair users is not as easy as it sounds. The bag needs to be sturdy enough to hold heavy items and also flexible enough so that it doesn’t get in the way of the wheels while they are moving.

Wheelchair users have to find the best backpack for their needs. They need a backpack that will not be too heavy and will fit on their back. The best backpack for the back of a wheelchair is one that is easy to put on and take off. It should also be light weight and have plenty of compartments.
