Maintenance


What do I need to do to keep my powerchair running smoothly?

Follow these maintenance tips to get the best performance out of your equipment for a long period of time:

  1. Keep your equipment sanitized as dirt and other debris can create friction or other problems with important parts of the equipment.
  2.  Make sure the batteries are holding a charge for the expected amount of time. When it is time to charge your equipment, you should charge your batteries for 8-12 hours. If you notice that the batteries are not holding their charge for the expected amount of time, you may have a loose connection or it may be time to have them replaced.
  3.  Make sure to turn off your equipment before you transfer into or out of it.

What is the best way to store my equipment? Can I store it outside or in a covered area?

Do not store your equipment outside or anywhere that exposes your equipment to the elements. Your equipment needs to be stored in a warm dry place between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit.

When storing your equipment for more than one month:

  1. You should charge your batteries for 8-12 hours. Please see your owner’s manual for further instruction.
  2. Remove the batteries from your equipment and store them in a warm dry place between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3.  To prevent the wheels from flattening or deteriorating, keep the unit off of the direct ground, by propping the equipment up on anything that will hold the weight.
