The Comfort Coat reaches down to your shoulder blades or wraps around wheelchair backrest. No need to lean forward and tuck it behind your back uncomfortably changing your position. The wheelchair backrest already keeps your back protected and warm. This ease of taking it on and off without needing to change position or physically move makes it faster to get ready to go and also makes it comfortable to even ask a stranger if necessary, such as a waitress at a restaurant, to help pull it off.
Designed for any disabled or handicapped wheelchair user, perfect for individuals with reduced circulation in their legs. Independance for someone with limited arm strength, or limited dexterity unable to put on or take off a conventional heavy winter coat or struggles with sleeves and zippers.

Mark Felling, Broadened Horizons President and the Comfort Coat's designer has been using the prototype from early fall to late spring through Minnesota's blustery winters since 2005 and it still looks like new. The prototype was originally sewn by Mark's mother, a skilled seamstress - Thanks Mom! Quality is in the details - designed by the disabled for the disabled with the detailed, loving touch only a mother can add!
