Clearbra/clearshield/invisishield Something along those lines.
So I just installed a small crane in the back of my wife's 2011 Odyssey in order to help her load her wheelchair into the back more easily. The challenge is that the wheelchair is inevitably going to rub up against the back bumper. So I need to figure out a method for protecting it. I'd rather not go down the route of putting bedliner on it, but I can't seem to find a commercial solution either. Perhaps TCL can help?

as much as i cant stand these things, for your wife and her wheel chair, i can accept that it will be useful and put to good use.

Those are a good solution to prevent major damage. I am not a huge fan of clear bra but what would also be good to install as it will prevent the paint from becoming abraded and scratched by the padding. In my experience though clear bra is a medium term product, after a few years it gets hard and yellow and impossible to remove so change it out if the van is a long term car.
Also I suggest a strip of non-skid tape on the bumper top surface. This too will protect the bumper and the non-skid is just good for safety. About $10 at any hardware store.
Finally, I might add in that there are step bars made for the Odyssey and that's a nice upgrade that would potentially make using the van easier for your wife as well.
