GENERAL MAINTENANCE FOR WHEELCHAIRS

For maximum service, it is recommended that the wheel bearings be cleaned, inspected and re-greased about every six months. Adjust brakes when necessary. Check periodically for loose screws, bolts or spokes and repair immediately. The best way to preserve the finish is to keep it clean by sponging with a damp cloth and drying immediately with a soft dry cloth. The chrome should be polished occasionally with chrome cleaner. Remove lint or dirt to prevent the wheel from binding. The front casters can be cleaned readily using chrome cleaner on the plated parts and a mild soap on the molded rubber tires. Most of the hinged or movable parts may be lubricated with “White Graphite”. The bearings should be cleaned and repacked with grease approximately once a year by dealer.

HOW TO SELECT A WHEELCHAIR

10 Things to Consider Before Buying a Wheelchair:

#  1 Evaluate the level of mobility of the end user. For instance, a person with moderately good use of their lower extremities and minimal arm strength would possibly want a with swing-away foot rests to self propel by using their feet on occasion.


#  2 Know and understand the medical condition/s of person being considered for mobility equipment. Also consider the anticipated length of time it will be used, as well as the progression of disease/ condition. Some products can be converted accordingly.

#  3 Consider the method of transferring into/ out of equipment to help decide if swing-away or removable arm rests and foot rests are recommended. Also, if transferring alone anti-tippers are recommended.

#  4 There are factors to consider when determining if a head rest is necessary. Is the person alert and oriented? How is the neck, shoulder muscle tone and head control of the intended user? In some instances seat belts or a harness may be in order.

#  5 Gather data on the body type of the end user. Weight and height are major factors as mobility equipment vary greatly in size and durability.

#  6 Considering the length of time the person will be spending in the equipment, to decide the best seating and tilt options.

#  7 Know if the product will be used indoors or outdoors (or both), the types of surfaces and inclines that will be encountered. Know the turn radius required for the space available. This will help determine the type of wheels/casters you should choose.

#  8 If traveling with the equipment, you'll want to be sure it will fit into the transporting vehicle. Some products fold, others do not.

#  9 Ask what the "Standard Options" are versus the "Extra Options".

#  10 Find out whether or not the product can be rented if not intended for long term use.

Final Note: When shopping around for the best deals, it is best to use the model number combined with the product name to make accurate comparisons.
