Wheelchair Maintenance

Hello folks. A question for you all. Maybe I am just extra hard on my chair. Anyway, it seems that I am constantly fixing one thing or another. I have parted out 2 older TiLites, almost to the frames.

It got me to thinking, do other people have this problem? If so, how do you deal with it? Is there such a thing as a wheelchair mechanic? And the parts, holy cow, TiLite is exorbitantly expensive.

Makes me wonder how folks do it.

Anyone willing to answer? Please do.

I am just a guy with a disease called adrenomyeloneuropathy. I want other guys with the disease to see the good parts of disability. Not the gloom. Not the doom. Make sense?

  1. I tend to be rough on my chair as well, although I am fortunate to have most repairs covered by insurance if I am willing to wait on them. My chair is not as nice as yours though so I am not sure what will happen when I get a nicer one down the road. I badly need it, but the repairs might start coming out of my own pocket when I finally get one. I am not sure how that could be made easier or more affordable.
