Aids for crutch, cane or wheelchairs
« on: November 11, 2005, 04:16:49 PM »
Hi,

Think these pouches are great.  These are manufactured ones, but think a person could also create these yourself at home with stuff you already have......



Ice grip for canes.....

I made a bag, almost identical to the one shown for my crutches, except it was larger.  I had some leftover scraps of fabric and some time so I stitched them together, then stitched a Ziploc bag inside so I could carry my water bottle around in it.  It worked wonders for my first surgery but I think I'm making a new one for this surgery...something a bit more Christmas-ey! LOL  ;D

Found these waist pouches are handy to have tied to a crutch.  You can carry essentials and just makes life a little easier.

You know you've been on crutches too long when you are still trying to add things to them to make them more convenient.....
