AbleDry waterproof wheelchair cover – £58.79
If you know a wheelchair user who loves water-based activities, then this is the perfect gift for them.
There is nothing more annoying than a damp wheelchair cushion or slippery armrest. The AbleDry, a waterproof wheelchair cover, solves this problem.
It will keep your wheelchair seating area completely dry when transferring from an outdoor water-based activity, a swimming pool or even a bath or shower. No more sitting in damp clothes for extended periods of time.
The AbleDry has been designed with both powered and manual wheelchair users in mind coming in high and low back versions.
The flaps can also be used to cover your legs once in your wheelchair for added privacy and comfort. A fantastic addition to your locker and a must if you’re going away to somewhere with a pool.
The AbleDry will help you dry and warm, and help prevent you from getting sores or rashes on your skin from sitting in a damp wheelchair after your bath.
If you purchase this for a disabled person, UK VAT exemption is also available with this product for those with qualifying conditions.
Go to the Disability Horizons Shop to browse the different sizes and colours of the AbleDry waterproof wheelchair cover. Plus, check out the other AbleMove products invented by disabled entrepreneur Josh Wintersgill.

The L.able jersey cape is waist-height making it perfect for the seated position as it does not hang low or restrict your upper legs. It is a unisex jersey and looks stylish on both men and women.
It can be worn sleeveless for extra movement or like a fitted hoodie, thanks to its easy-press snap fastenings that close the sleeves. The jersey cape also features an adjustable drawstring hood to keep you warm and snug.

This is an ideal present for a disabled person looking for stylish adaptable clothing that is both practical and fashionable. VAT exemption available for eligible customers.

Glideboard transfer board – £179.94
Exclusive to the Disability Horizons Shop, this new ultra-lightweight transfer board (1.2kg) with a unique design to increase stability, makes transferring from anything easier and safer, reducing effort by more than 30% and minimising friction.
The seat itself glides along the board, making sliding it under and removing it once transferred much smoother and more flexible. It also makes transferring upwards and downwards easier to different positioning levels (e.g from a wheelchair to a car seat).
The contoured edges and asymmetric design means fewer marks from friction, and the ‘handles’ are shaped to fit around armrests.
The Glideboard is available in a range of colour combinations to ensure it is stylish and non-medical – the seat comes in mint, green and white, and the board in white and blue – and is easy to clean.
If you know someone who may struggle with transfers and could benefit from this innovative device, treat them this Christmas to this modern, smart and slick transfer aid.
The Glideboard is only £149.95 with a qualifying VAT exemption for eligible conditions and can only be purchased on the Disability Horizons Shop.
Buy the Buckingham Glideboard transfer board exclusively on Disability Horizons Shop.
