Using a backpack is second nature to most people...but have you ever thought about how difficult backpacks are for wheelchair users to use? Traditional backpacks are not accessible to most wheelchair users, who have to sling them on the back of their chair and tweak their bodies around to blindly fish around to find what they need.
This is not only incredibly frustrating, but can lead to pulled muscles and an overexertion of the upper extremities, Potentially leading to future damage!
