Keeping it Going: Maintenance Tips for Long-lasting Performance of Your Electric Wheelchair

by Cihad Ozkurt 03 Dec 2023
**Introduction**

When you invest in an electric wheelchair, you're investing in enhanced mobility and independence. To ensure it delivers peak performance for years to come, a regular maintenance routine is essential. With the right care, your wheelchair can provide long-lasting service, ensuring you're never without the mobility you need.

**Understanding Your Electric Wheelchair**

Electric wheelchairs are complex devices that combine mechanical and electronic systems. Familiarize yourself with the manufacturer's manual to understand the specific care requirements of your wheelchair.

**Battery Care is Essential**

The battery is the lifeblood of an electric wheelchair. Proper battery care can extend its lifespan significantly. Always charge the battery fully before its first use. Regularly top it up to prevent full discharge, and never leave it in a discharged state as this can reduce its lifespan.

**Regular Cleaning and Inspection**

Keep the wheelchair clean to prevent dust and dirt from infiltrating its components. Use a damp cloth for the frame and a soft brush for hard-to-reach areas. Regularly inspect your wheelchair for signs of wear and tear. Check the tires for adequate pressure, the joints and fasteners for looseness, and the electrical connections for any signs of damage or corrosion.

**Professional Servicing**

While regular home maintenance is crucial, nothing beats professional servicing for complex components such as the motor and electronic system. Ensure your wheelchair undergoes professional maintenance at least once a year to prevent any small issues from escalating.

**Handling Minor Repairs**

Over time, you might encounter minor issues like a stuck wheel or a malfunctioning joystick. While it's tempting to fix these yourself, always refer to the manufacturer's manual first. If the issue persists, it's better to contact a professional to avoid causing more damage.

**Storing Your Electric Wheelchair**

Proper storage can significantly impact the longevity of your electric wheelchair. If you're not using it for extended periods, store it in a cool, dry place. Always disconnect and store the battery separately if you're not using the wheelchair for a while.

**Conclusion**

Investing in an electric wheelchair can drastically improve the quality of life for those with mobility issues. Regular maintenance ensures that you enjoy the benefits of your device for as long as possible. At ComfyGo Mobility, we understand the importance of reliable and long-lasting mobility solutions.
