About wheelchair wheels:
Do you decontaminate student shoes before leaving lab? That seems analogous to me.
About lab coats:
The last few students we had who used chairs wore the same long-sleeve, knee-length coat as others. We supplied a chemical-resistant apron that provided additional protection needed when working from a seated position. I like Fisher’s PVC Apron of the Elements.

This year our university instituted a lab coat policy requiring undergraduate students to wear lab coats in chemistry labs. We have a handful of students in wheelchairs taking our courses. Can you recommend a source of lab coats for students using wheelchairs? Also, how do you handle decontaminating the wheelchair wheels prior to students leaving the lab?
