Thread: Prevent elbows from sliding back on wheelchair armrests

  1. #1

    Prevent elbows from sliding back on wheelchair armrests

    I am trying to find something that will fill a 2 inch gap between the back of my elbow and the back of the armrest in order to prevent my arms from sliding back on the armrests. Does anyone have any suggestions? I?ve considered gel mousepads. I?m currently using wristbands to keep my forearms in place to prevent slippage. Thanks

    What kind of chair do you have? Arm troughs instead of armrests would normally be the solution for this.

    There are shallow arm troughs, but they are not doing the job.

    I had these for my Permobil. Not sure if they'd work with Invacare.

    The Permobil style is more in line with what I’m looking for. Do you know what those are called?

    Actually made by Stealth (bought out by Quantum), but Permobil carries them to customize chairs:

    I actually am selling mine as well. The listing expired, but let me know if you are interested. Mine are a bargain ($89 + shipping).
