It is designed to protect and hold your valuable items when travelling. The large capacity will help you organise everything you need for travel, work, school, hospital trips and daily activities.
The wheelchair strap will keep your bag at a safe height so you don’t have to worry about it dragging on the floor when moving. The top handle helps you to hold and carry it.

The Optivus wheelchair bag is the perfect gift for wheelchair users who love to travel or frequently go out and need to carry essential items such as electronic devices, change of clothes and medication.
It is also an ideal product to take with you if you’re going away or visiting family this Christmas.
