Wheelie Favorite Things: Wheel Comfort Foot Plate

Posted on 11 April 2015

Welcome to the first installment of our Wheelie Favorite Things. Each month we’ll be profiling the products- for wheelchair-users in the PushLiving Store.

Wheel Comfort: A brilliant invention created by Ethan Ruby, a paraplegic from NYC, Wheel Comfort in an inexpensive and easy add-on every wheelchair-user needs. This cushy footrest topper comes with sticky tape, allowing it to be put right on top of your current footrest, and it’s designed to protect your skin so you can go wheeling barefoot without worries thanks it’s over abundance of cushiness.

LOVE this idea! I can’t tell you how many times my bare feet have dangerously slipped off my footrest. This padded footrest is made from a lightweight foam and a two-piece version is also available (for those with two separate foot rests). Prices range from $54!

    Ethan,
    I love your invention! Does it come in different widths? You would not believe the things I have used to prevent my feet from slipping off of my footrest! I taped a small pillow around my footrest – which looked awful! Please keep me posted about how to purchase your product and if they can be customized for varying sized wheelchair footrests. Thanks!
