With spring and the beautiful sun and showers it brings, what better time to have a whole month dedicated to the great invention of the umbrella? That’s right. March is umbrella month, and we are selling some excellent products for you to tackle the sun and rain in style.
Regain the classic umbrella look
First and most important of all, there is the Wheelchair Umbrella, which clamps on to most manual and electric wheelchairs. Many people who are in wheelchairs have mobility and range of motion limitations that prevent them from holding an umbrella on their own. Those of you who find yourselves in this predicament have surely been through the ordeal of rolling alongside someone as they hold an umbrella for you. But that takes way too much coordination and doesn’t usually work. The Wheelchair Umbrella is a way for you to carry your own umbrella for once.
The Wheelchair Umbrella is versatile
Besides protection against sun and rain, there are other fun uses of the Wheelchair Umbrella:
- Look beautiful. Complete your spring fashion with a cute umbrella.
- Clamp to picnic tables. Did you get caught at the one picnic or sidewalk cafe table without an umbrella. No worries! Just try clamping the Wheelchair Umbrella to the end of the table.
- Have a conversation starter wherever you go. Friends and passersby are sure to notice your fun side and originality.
- Go to a funeral in New Orleans. What New Orleans funeral procession is complete without an umbrella? Don’t be left behind in this great Nawlins tradition!
Alternatives to the umbrella
The umbrella, however, is not the only way to protect against the elements.
If you are looking for something more heavy duty, try the Fleece Lined Hooded Wheelchair Poncho, which features a shortened back and extended front for use in a sitting position.
Also consider the Wheelchair Weather Chaps, which fit snugly on the feet and legs to keep them dry. The Wheelchair Weather Chaps will come in handy in combination with the Wheelchair Umbrella or the Fleece Lined Hooded Wheelchair Poncho to achieve the difficult task of keeping legs dry while sitting.
Tackle the sun and rain with style. Embrace the umbrella once again, as well as other ways of keeping dry, during Umbrella Month.
