About the solution

DarkRubyMoon can't walk. He's in a wheelchair and knows that caregivers are usually careful to ensure one's seat lands on the seat of the wheelchair, but they will just drop the feet once the person's seat has landed. She was worried about getting some bruises on the feet, which with the compromised circulation in the feet of a person with a disability can be quite serious. Wheelchair footrest, especially metal ones, can be very cold for bare feet as well.

To solve these problems, he added footpads to her footrest that both cushion her feet when she's placed in the chair and protect them from the cold.

All you need to do this footpads is: 1 roll of rubber shelf liner mat (available at most dollar stores in a variety of colors); Hook and Loop or Velcro brand fasteners with and without sticky back; Scissors; Paper; Marker (permanent or sharpie brand); Hot glue gun and glue; Optional Needle and thread.
