Carrying Your Prosthetic Devices in Style

Carrying Your Prosthetic Devices in Style

Have you ever had to go out when you weren’t wearing your prosthesis? Perhaps you needed to use crutches or your wheelchair but wanted to take your prosthesis with you in case you needed it later. Or maybe you were going on a trip and went through the airport in your wheelchair but also wanted to carry your prosthesis and prosthetic accessories to use at your destination.

How do you carry your prosthetic devices in such situations? Do you carry them out in the open or stuff them into a plastic bag or pillowcase?

Those may be functional solutions, but some folks may want to show a little more style.

Several companies now sell amputee-themed tote bags or bags specifically made for carrying prosthetic devices, and these products come in various styles to fit your requirements.

IF YOU’RE READY TO UP YOUR STYLE, HERE’S A SAMPLING OF COMPANIES THAT CAN HELP:
