Maintaining Your Chair

Depending on how much you demand of your wheelchair will determine how often your maintenance routine should be performed. Regular maintenance can help extend the life of your chair and reduce the number and cost of repairs. A wheelchair maintenance checklist is available in the resource section to help you identify and track the key items you should be familiar with to help maintain your sport chair. I'll review these maintenance tasks now and provide tips to make the tasks easier as you learn to do these yourself. Remember if you are unsure of performing a procedure or you encounter a problem, contact your local wheelchair service provider.
