Every week you should perform a couple of basic checks to assure and dilate the lifespan of your wheelchair:
Check the tyre pressure: tyres should be inflated to the pressure indicated on their side.
Clean and oil the quick-release device of the wheels regularly to make sure it won’t jam once you need it.
Once every now and then you should perform a more accurate check on your wheelchair:
Check the wear of the tire, the effectiveness of the front-back bearings and the rotation of the forks.
Lubricate moving parts, like wheels and pull pins, using silicone oil as a lubricant.
Store your wheelchair in a clean and dry place to avoid rusting and corrosion, especially if you store it for a long period.
To properly clean your wheelchair we advise removing the seat and backrest canvas before starting the operations.
Wash the wheelchair with a damp cloth, using warm water and neutral soap to remove dirt or stains and then rinse it with a damp cloth to remove any traces of the detergent. Make sure the wheelchair is completely dry before you store it.
