CushPocket is a Quality Wheelchair Bag

The CushPocket Wheelchair Bag was designed by Jason Leuck, a T2-4 paraplegic, who wanted a better way to carry items for himself and his wife, who also has a spinal cord injury. He introduced his first bag in 2019 and recently released a larger version made with higher-quality fabric.  

The CushPocket offers two compartments: an outer pocket that closes with a magnetic flap, and a larger main compartment featuring a zipper closure with an updated O-ring loop. The CushPocket is attached to a flexible board that slides underneath the seat cushion, and can be attached to the seat pan of most manual or power wheelchairs with Velcro strips that are included. When detached from the chair, the board is designed with a hand-sized slot to double as a carrying handle. 

“As a wheelchair user myself, I understand the challenges faced in accessing essential items, and my firsthand experience helped create a product that effectively addresses those needs,” says Leuck.  

NM editor Seth McBride recently purchased a CushPocket bag for his opens in a new window TiLite TR manual wheelchair, and says the price point is what sold him. “I needed a new underchair bag, and $40 is hard to beat for anything that will hold up,” he says. “It was way easier to attach than other bags I’ve had — just peel off the Velcro backing and stick the board on your seat pan. I can fit my daily essentials — wallet, phone, catheter and bag of Skittles — and the zipper is easy to operate. So far, I’m happy with it.”  

The CushPocket can be used on most manual and power wheelchairs with removable cushions. It’s available directly from opens in a new window CushPocket ($40 plus shipping) and online retailers including opens in a new windowAmazon ($46.99).
