Add bumpers to a wheelchair and protect furniture


My husband and I happen to be wheelchair users. As you might imagine, we have identified a few uses that may be unique to people such as ourselves. One use in particular involves the front casters of our chairs, which are constantly coming into contact with the cabinetry in our home. Our kitchen cabinets and bedroom furniture are always getting scratched up. This has always been a problem and no matter how vigilant one is, ultimately you become a little too focused on a task and, you are up against the woodwork. Problem no more! I fashioned SUGRU bumpers around the parts of the casters that make contact with horizontal surfaces. We are still careful. But on the off chance we get a little too close, the woodwork is protected. The attached picture shows the black sugru “bumpers” - look where the red arrow points.
