Ronnie needs an umbrella for his wheelchair. When we were waiting for the school bus last week when it was raining, he had a tough time staying dry. Both Chip and I had umbrellas - one we were holding over Ashley, and a really big one we were holding over Ronnie. But, his pants and shoes still got pretty wet.
So, I've begun my search for an umbrella and holder that can be attached to his wheelchair, but so far I'm not finding much.
I googled 'wheelchair umbrella', got lots of hits, and almost all of them were for this:
But this was a very specific warning that the product contained latex and was not appropriate for people with latex allergies (Ronnie). And, they weren't cheap. this particular model ranged from $30-$60.
So I tried another angle. I searched for 'golf bag umbrella holder', and found this:
It looks like it could hold any umbrella, and it looks pretty well made (at least in the picture). The lowest price I could find for it was $16.
I'm going to try to find a golf store in town and see if they have the holder. But I wondered if any of you had figured out the umbrella/wheelchair thing. If so, what was your solution?
