We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. For those who have permanent mobility issues or are confined to a wheelchair for a long period of recovery from an illness or injury, these wheelchair arm rests can at least make the time spent in the chair a touch more comfortable. They support your arms with more comfortable padding than found on standard wheelchairs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
