Living with a disability shouldn’t mean compromising on comfort and style. Thanks to innovative clothing brands like Kinetic Balance, people who use wheelchairs can experience both fashion and functionality. In this blog post, you’ll find 5 essential wheelchair clothing items from Kinetic Balance. These items are designed to make the daily lives of wheelchair users more comfortable, convenient and stylish.

1. Wheelchair Jeans


Our wheelchair jeans are designed to be sat in. They’re entirely crafted with sitting in mind. A trouser designed for sitting has different principles in its design than one for standing. Our jeans excel in comfort, fit, quality, appearance, and style. The specially produced fabric has the unique property of stretching both lengthwise and widthwise.

The jeans have no back pockets and a higher back, making them comfortable for a sitting posture. This reduces friction on the skin and ensures a better fit. Additionally, our jeans are available with a regular button closure and a magnetic hook-and-loop closure. The loop is made of a soft velour that gently opens and closes.

2. The Perfect Winter Jacket


The ideal winter jacket in terms of fit, appearance, and quality. Our high-quality QT-Jacket is the perfect choice to retain warmth and ensure a good fit. With a 50/50 fit designed to accommodate space for your belly and shoulders. This breathable, windproof and waterproof jacket features magnetic buttons for effortless opening and closing. Additionally, the jacket is shorter at the front, designed to sit well. This eliminates excess material often found in traditional jackets.

3. Winter Jacket for the Legs

Our Raindek Parka is specially designed to offer ultimate warmth and comfort for wheelchair users. It’s like an expedition jacket for your legs, keeping you snug during your outdoor adventures. This Parka version also covers the back of your lower legs and is heavily insulated with THERMOLITE® insulation to keep out the cold.

4. Stylish and Functional Bag

Style isn’t something you have to compromise on when it comes to wheelchair bags. Our bags are contemporary in design with attention to detail. Whether you prefer a casual, business, or sporty look, Kinetic Balance wheelchair bags suit every style. Made from durable materials that last long, our bags also feature waterproof zippers to protect your belongings from rain and moisture. You can trust that your items will remain safe and dry.

Moreover, we believe storage spaces are a must! Our bags offer ample storage for all your essentials, whether you’re grocery shopping, heading to work, or having an adventurous day outdoors. No more compromises.

5. Stay Dry

The Raindek® is a quick and simple solution; it’s a raincoat for the legs. It keeps the legs, seat and cushion dry. This version falls just over the knees. It’s very easy to put on and take off; in about a minute, the Raindek® wraps around your legs. After use, the Raindek® can be folded into its own pouch for neat storage.

In essence, Kinetic Balance aims to offer more than just clothing and accessories. Our mission is to combine comfort, functionality, and style, allowing wheelchair users the freedom not only to stay mobile but also to feel confident and express their personal style.
