Clare-Marie Edwards: The Inspiration Behind the Exclusive New Fashion Strap


Clare-Marie Edwards, the ingenious mind behind Trabasack, and the wife of the shop manager at Disability Horizons, has contributed valuable designs to the range of disability aids. Living with a spinal injury, Clare understands the nuances and needs of wheelchair users firsthand.

One of her primary concerns was the aesthetic appeal of wheelchair accessories. She desired a leg strap that would seamlessly blend with her sleek black wheelchair, ensuring it wouldn’t clash with any outfit she chose. Acting on this need, we took the initiative to ask Josh at Ablemove to create a leg strap that is not only functional but also a statement of style, in new black leatherette fabric.

Benefits of the Black Leatherette Wheelchair Leg Strap

Comfort Meets Elegance

A Summer Essential for Wheelchair Users

Summer brings with it the joy of flaunting sandals and low-cut shoes, but for wheelchair users, this often comes with the challenge of ensuring their legs are protected. Traditional leg straps can be abrasive, especially when wearing footwear that exposes more of the skin. However, the black leatherette wheelchair leg strap from Disability Horizons is a game-changer in this regard. Made carefully in the UK from soft leatherette material, it is smooth and gentle against the skin, preventing any chafing or discomfort. This means users can confidently choose a wider variety of footwear, from stylish sandals to casual slip-ons, without worrying about potential skin irritations. It’s not just about securing the legs; it’s about doing so with utmost care and consideration for the skin, especially during the warmer months.


Versatility in Design


Whether you’re attending a formal event or just heading out for a casual day, this leg strap complements every look. Its neutral black hue ensures it pairs well with any outfit.

Enhanced Stability for Everyday Activities and Beyond

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the primary function of a wheelchair leg strap is undeniably to provide enhanced stability. The Able Move Leg Strap for wheelchairs has been carefully made to ensure that users can navigate their daily activities with utmost confidence. Whether it’s transferring from the wheelchair to a car, bed, or another seating surface, during a transfer from an aisle chair to a seat on an aircraft (see more below) the strap ensures that the legs remain securely in place, minimising any risk of slips or misalignments.

Furthermore, for wheelchair sports, the importance of stability cannot be overstated. Activities such as wheelchair basketball, tennis, or racing demand rapid movements and quick turns. In such scenarios, the leg strap proves invaluable, offering the necessary support to ensure that the legs remain together and stable, allowing athletes to focus solely on their performance without any distractions.

Whether it’s daily transfers, participating in sports, or simply enjoying a day out, people can trust this strap to provide the stability they need.

Seamless Transfers on Flights with the Wheelchair Leg Strap

For wheelchair users, one of the most challenging aspects of air travel is the transfer from the aisle chair to the aircraft seat. The narrow confines of an aeroplane and the bustling environment can make this process daunting. However, with the black leatherette wheelchair leg strap, this transfer becomes significantly more manageable.

By using the strap to hold the legs together during the transfer, users can ensure their legs remain secure and in place. This is especially beneficial when being assisted by the special assistance staff from the airport. Not only does it provide an added layer of safety, but it also offers the user a sense of confidence and independence during the transfer process.

Moreover, the smooth leatherette material ensures that the strap doesn’t cause any discomfort, when worn for short periods, such as during a flight. Although be mindful of pressure issues and loosen the strap when you can. Whether you’re a frequent flyer or embarking on a one-off journey, the wheelchair leg strap proves to be an invaluable travel companion, ensuring a smooth and stress-free transfer experience.
