Individuals with disabilities who are wheelchair bound often require medical devices such as urinary bags. Typically these devices are exposed and can be embarrassing when visible in public. Often such devices are hidden under baggy long pants or clothing, and the individual in the wheelchair has very limited clothing options, particularly in summer when such clothing is hot or uncomfortable.
This seat cover design is intended to hide such medical devices and allow for the individual in a wheelchair to have maximum independence while making the cover easy to clean and sized to fit any seat cushion.
A urinary bag can be placed inside the plastic lined bag that hangs from the seat cushion cover. A black flap hides the catheter tube which can be easily connected to an individual without being visible even in shorts.
