If you find yourself frequently going outside with your wheelchair and finding your clothes dirty in the process, consider getting clothing guards to help keep clean. Clothing guards, also known as side guards, keep your clothing from getting caught on the wheels or dirt from splashing on your wardrobe. You can select armrests for your wheelchair with built in clothing guards. If you'd rather go without armrests at all, consider separate side guards to protect you from outdoor grime. You'll find clothing guards made of various materials, including plastic, metal, and cloth.
