    Is there Wheelchair Luggage?

    I just came back from San Fran and my girlfriend had to pull my luggage. Is there luggage that attaches to your wheelchair? Is there luggage or a suitcase that attaches to your wheelchair for easy transport.

    I see a lot of people just use a regular rolling carry on and attach it to the back of their wheelchair (usually to the horizontal bar on a rigid chair) with a carabiner or Velcro strap.

    In most airports in the USA, the airport wheelchair assistance people will push your carry-on luggage for you when escorting you to through TSA and on to the gate. You need to ask for this when you check into your flight or, when disembarking, remind the cabin crew to request this assistance for you about 30 min. before your plane lands. Sometimes it is the same people who help with the aisle chair transfer; other times it is a different person. Varies by the airport.

    I dont carry one that big but mine has back pack straps that fold up out of the way when not in use.
    It can go on my back rest or on my footplate no problem...

    Ablechef . . . what is your level? I'm a t-10 and travel extensively for work and I have found best method is a tri-fold garment bag that sits on top of my computer bag.

    I've not been able to come up with a solution for luggage ( other than me carrying it ). Do you pull these behind your wheelchair or lap-carry the bags?

    If this was Facebook, I'd give that a BIG thumbs up. Very smart!

    Same person who designed and produces the Carbon Black wheelchair.

    They now have a Kickstarter campaign.

    I'm in. This could make a huge difference for my husband and I. Hope the inventor gets enough backers.
