Cover Clip / wheelchair cover

Cover Clip
Cover Clip

The wheels of an wheelchair are structurally in a closer position to the user's body than both arms are. Therefore, when the wheels are rolling, the side that touches a floor would roll and it has to touch the user's clothes or arms.
In general cases, a person who needs an wheelchair would be an old man or a patient. Since they have weaker immune systems than ordinary people do, the dirty side of the wheels could cause a superfluous additional disease or a secondary infection.
