How often do I have to check over my wheelchair?- -
The maintenance of a manual wheelchair depends upon the model and the type of use it is subjected to. As a general rule you should check the tread pattern every month, as well as the condition of the brakes, the backrest and all moving parts. It is advisable to take a look at the quick release mechanism, the anti-tip system (if fitted), footrest and upholstery every 3-4 months, as well as cleaning the chair frame.
How to clean the wheelchair?- -
To maintain wheelchair appearance, the upholstery should be cleaned regularly. Light soiling can be removed by a wet sponge with a mild detergent or warm water wiping in the direction of the texture. Rinse off with clean water before allowing to dry. Do not put upholstery in a dryer. If dirt is ingrained, the surface should be scrubbed with a soft brush. The frame should be cleaned regularly with a non-abrasive cleaner followed by polishing with a non-abrasive automotive wax.
How often should my power chair be serviced?- -

How long do wheelchair batteries last?- -
A brand new, fully charged power wheelchair battery can cover around 22 to 50 km of distance. The distance depends on the capacity of battery. Overall battery health declines as the battery is used, both in the length of time it will last and the range it covers. Power wheelchair batteries should be replaced every one and a half to two years to ensure you have the proper power for your daily use. Depending on your usage, a power wheelchair battery can last from 6 months to 2 years before requiring a replacement.
