Wheelchair Trays – what is available?

The Gloves are off: a Wheelchair Lap Tray Comparison

As inventors of a wheelchair lap tray, we only thought it fair to compare our product to others on the market. Now, when Trabasack was first designed our main aim was to create something  unlike the clinical, clunky look of wheelchair trays. We wanted to invent something easier to use and with a wheelchair user in mind. The result was our ergonomic, light-weight, stylish and versatile Trabasack lap tray and bag.

We thought it’d be worthwhile having a tongue-in-cheek look at some of our competitors and why exactly Trabasack is your best wheelchair lap tray choice!

The Competitors

A wooden tray fixed to red manual wheelchair

1. The Wooden Laptray – available for around £99.00 and well as the photo shows, not the most comfortable looking product. Secured to your wheelchair with hook and loop straps, this product is reminiscent of a school desk and although functional, has a bit of a retro sideboard feel!

A white plastic clinical looking tray for food and drink

2. Moulded Laptray – available for around £49.99 and is made from moulded plastic and features and moulded cup holder. Designed to look like a child’s high chair tray and from the photo looks extremely clinical and not ideal in a social situation. It could feel like a social barrier or be a little too reminiscent of hospitals. Not really the image one wants to portray!

 

 

 

 

Laptray which is a half tray and swings out like an airplane tray

3. Flip Away Half  Tray – available for around £99.99 and also made from moulded plastic featuring a cup holder and can be easily flipped away. This design is clearly a step up from the others, it does have a bit of an “I’m just about to have an in flight meal” look. Although it doesn’t trap you behind a piece of plastic quite as much s the one above and it can be moved away when transferring from your chair. Difficulties come in attaching it to an armrest, all chairs and people are so different, you will be lucky if this suits you. The hard edges of the tray surface and the corner may also catch door frames and maybe even other peoples groins!

 

So how does Trabasack compare?

The Trabasack is portable, light weight and functional and has even won a style award! You can strap it around your waist or hang it from the back of your chair when not in use and it doesn’t restrict movement at all. In comparison to

the older tray designs, you can clearly see how much more functional the Trabasack design is. You never have to worry about transfer issues or having to screw the tray to your chair, your Trabasack lap tray is extremely easy to move and much more comfortable due to its beanbag cushion for comfort.

The Trabasack is also a handy bag so instead of becoming another thing that you have to carry around, you can actually carry things inside it

I hope you also agree that our Trabasack products at between £35 and £45 are much better value for money!
