This is the cupholder i have for my wheelchair. We get asked about it fairly frequently, so i thought i’d share. It works great, and even though the arm of my chair is a little tall for it, it’s lasted over a year so far, with no signs of spring weakening or plastic breaking.

Plus it’s just a handy gadget in general.

Tomby, i find it is best to clip it perpendicular to the chair arm. I used to clip it to the end, but as my abs and other trunk muscles got weaker, i could not reach as far, and turned it towards me. I use it with a looooong straw. It's great.

Are you all using catheters?
If I drink, uncontrollable urges soon start
