Shielding the Essential Danger Zones: Comprehensive protection from both footrest and leg rest panels.
For wheelchair users, especially those with certain conditions or sensitivities, there are areas on the wheelchair that can be considered “danger zones.” These zones often pose a risk for skin tears, pinching, bruising, or other injuries. Some commonly recognized danger zones on wheelchairs include: Footrests: Users might accidentally hit or scrape their ankles or feet against the metal parts, leading to bruises
or skin tears. Leg Rest Panel: Without proper cushioning, this can create pressure points behind the legs, leading to skin issues.
