InventHelp Inventor Develops Wheelchair Umbrella Device (CBA-3345)

PITTSBURGH, July 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- An inventor from Hopkins, S.C., has developed the RAINBORELLA BAR, a practical device designed to secure an umbrella onto a wheelchair. This will protect wheelchair users and their caregivers from inclement weather or the harmful rays of the sun. A prototype is available.

"My job working at an adult day care inspired me to develop my invention. Several of my clients at the day care use a wheelchair. I must hold the umbrella for them while I push their wheelchair, which can be challenging," said the inventor. The RAINBORELLA BAR provides added comfort and increased independence for wheelchair users, as well as their caregivers. It ensures the user and caregiver will remain dry. This will allow wheelchair users to travel outdoors when it is sunny, raining, snowing, etc. This hands-free device allows users to fully focus on manipulating the wheelchair rather than fumbling with an umbrella while trying to direct the wheelchair.

The original design was submitted to the Columbia office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
