What To Look For In Children's Wheelchair Gloves

June 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 184

If you are a parent or relative of a child who uses a wheelchair and you been looking for pediatric wheelchair gloves you may find that you are in for a very difficult challenge. The reason is that you will probably find very few brands of wheelchair gloves for children available for sale. The market for children's wheelchair gloves is considerably smaller than the market for adult wheelchair gloves. So, few manufacturers make gloves for kids who use wheelchair and few dealers want to carry children's wheelchair gloves.

However, even if you have managed to find gloves for kids who use wheelchairs and if you have bought them, you may find that they do not last very long. The reason for this is that many manufacturers make their pediatric wheel chair gloves from synthetics and other such materials, because they are stretchy and can accommodate various size hands. Yet, many wheelchair gloves made for children are not built to last very long. In addition, kids hands like the rest of their bodies, will grow. So, it is possible that the child can out-grow their gloves.

So, what should you look for when buying a pediatric wheel chair glove?

First, consider buying gloves for wheelchairs which are made of leather. Why? Kids can be hard on everything. They are hard on their clothes, their toys and of course they will be hard on their wheel chair gloves. Gloves made of synthetic materials may not last very long. Quality leather is usually very durable and will usually last longer than many synthetics which currently are on the market.

Second, keep in mind that children's hands will grow. Sometimes the hands of kids will grow slowly and other times their hands will grow in spurts. Therefore, you may want to find children's wheelchair gloves which are adjustable and which will adapt well to the child's changing hand size. Otherwise it is possible that your child may outgrow the gloves.

Third, look for a glove which will not only protect the child's hand, but will also help them to push their wheelchair. A wheel chair glove with a grip pad on the palm will help improve the grip. If there is no grip pad on the palm of the glove, it may do little to help the child push the wheelchair.

Fourth, look for a pediatric glove which will look good. Many kids can be particular about what they wear. If they do not like the glove and will not wear it, then the best glove in the world won't help them very much.

Should price be an issue when buying kids wheel chair gloves? Yes and no. If the gloves do not last very long, then you certainly do not want to spend much on them. However, a good pair of quality wheelchair gloves, like a good pair of quality shoes, should be worth paying a bit more.
