Wheelchairs are the perfect solution to those with limited mobility
or the inability to move on their own. They give freedom to the user
and allow them to get around on their own when they might not have other
wise been able to do that. They come in a wide range of styles and are
available to meet the users needs. They are constructed for people of
every size, shape and age. Wheelchairs provide the features that their
users need to make their life a full one.While wheelchairs are
definitely the answer to many mobility problems, wheelchair parts are
often subject to wear and tear. Many of the parts that are on a
wheelchair commonly become worn and may even break.Batteries are
often an item that runs out and needs to be replaced. In some cases, the
parts themselves will have individual batteries that are not
chargeable. These simply need to be replaced with the correct size of
battery when they run out. Other batteries are designed to be charged up
on a regular basis. Over time, these batteries may get shorter and
shorter charge lives. It is always a good idea to read the manual to
make sure you get the most out of the life of your battery by following
the battery care instructions. Should your battery begin to have a
shorter charge life then it can be replaced.Other wheelchair
parts are also commonly worn and can be carefully replaced. On board
battery, chargers commonly become faulty and need to be replaced. The
parts of a joystick may become worn and need to be replaced to keep it
working optimally. As with many vehicles drive belts, tires and tubes,
bearings, and casters will all need to be replaced at some point in
time. Then there is the comfort aspect of the wheelchair that is likely
to become worn out. These include footrests, leg rests, hand rims,
armrests and calf pads. Each of these can be replaced as they become
worn.More important wheelchair parts that may need fixing and
replacing from time to time include electric motors, gearboxes and
breaks. Often these parts have to be done by a professional to make sure
that they are done well and are safe for use. In addition to the
wheelchair parts that may need fixing or repairing there are a number of
accessories that may need to be taken care of regularly. These can
include cushions, baskets and other on board storage, footrest pads and
padded footplates.Taking good care of the wheelchair parts is the
first step in taking good care of the wheelchair. General maintenance,
regular tune-ups, and regular upkeep as well as fixing problems right
away will go a long way in keeping a wheelchair working well. As with
all major purchases and vehicles care and maintenance will keep it
working well and as it should allowing the wheelchair to continue to
work for the user long into the future.

If you find that your mobility scooter or wheelchair is getting
run down and not working or looking as good as it should, I encourage
you to replace some of the wheelchair parts
before opting to replace the entire chair.If you need great
