Wheelchair Trays and Their Accessories
Our Product Range and Handy Extras
When you’ve found the perfect wheelchair tray for your needs, there are additional extras you could consider to enhance its usability even further. Our range of wheelchair trays not only gives you scope for choice when you’re initially choosing which tray suits you best but each has specific accessories which enhance its functionality. Let’s take a look at each one in turn.
The Curve was our original design. It brings together all the functions of a regular wheelchair tray but also includes a spacey bag compartment. The tray top is both sturdy and secure and allows for easy use when placed upon your lap. The product is extremely light weight and you can place it on your lap with ease and have instant access to whatever you may need. You can keep everything from your laptop to drinks and food atop the Trabasack tray surface and rest assured they’re perfectly safe. The leather look surface is also wipe-clean so you can clean up any spillages in seconds.
The product is designed with wheelchair users in mind with its ergonomic curved design hugging the contours of your body comfortably. Unlike other trays on the market the Curve fits perfectly to any lap and comes with a range of straps to help with security. You can also easily hang it from the back of your chair when not in use.
Our Mini model includes all the top features of the Curve but is extremely compact and super lightweight. For use specifically with smaller multimedia devices such as iPads and other tablets, the Mini is the perfect business wheelchair tray. It weighs a tiny 700g and is perfect if you need a compact wheelchair tray you can easily store away when not in use.
The Mini also features a bag compartment and like the originally designed Curve sits comfortably on your lap without exerting any pressure.
Accessories for your Trabasack Mini
We recommend buying additional side straps to enhance your Mini Trabasack’s functionality. It comes fitted with two long straps for attaching around your waist or hanging from your chairs handles but if you want to secure it to your chair’s armrests, additional straps would be a good idea.
Connect Surface Models
We have also developed both our Mini and Curve models to give you everything you’d expect from our original designs plus one innovative, additional extra. The wheelchair tray surface of the Connect models is coated in our unique Connect material. It’s super soft and designed so you can attach and secure items to your tray top safely. It uses hook and loop technology and is a great option if you travel regularly and need items to be held in place whilst you move over difficult surfaces and navigate public transport.
The Curve Connect can also be personalised with a coloured trim and comes with a range of straps to attach it to your chair. The Mini Connect is equipped with two long straps so as above you may decide additional side straps are a worthwhile purchase.
Accessories for your Trabasack Curve or Mini Connect
We recommend purchasing great value Trabasack Hook Tapes with your Curve Connect. These hook tapes are self-adhesive and allow you to use the Velcro receptive surface of your wheelchair tray immediately.
This is our newest development and it has been very successful. It is a fully functional mounting device which can support media devices in use with your wheelchair tray. It can hold any device at the right angle for use ad can also be wrapped around specific items to secure them in place.
Dr Mark Edworthy is a trabasack user of two years now and he has been one of our most enthusiastic supporters. He bought a trabasack in April 2009 at our launch at Naidex, NEC, Birmingham.
Ever since then we have regularly seen him at shows and events around the country as he is often booked as a public speaker. We asked him if he would say a few words about how he uses trabasack for a video. He said he would be delighted and we recorded this last week.
Mark uses trabasack to work on when he travels around the country by train. It supports his laptop and he uses it to carry his work notes and documents. He also uses it during his public speaking events, and as a wheelchair tray for drinks and food at restaurants.
We are very pleased that he still has the one he bought two years ago and, despite daily use, it has proved very hard wearing and durable.
Mark is seen using trabasack in his manual wheelchair but he also uses it in his powerchair. He says it is the most useful accessory he has found as it is a lap tray and wheelchair bag . Click for more information and to purchase a trabasack wheelchair tray.
