Sports wheelchair maintenance

To ensure that your sports wheelchair maximises your performance and to reduce the chance of the wheelchair becoming unusable when you need it most, maintenance is vital.

As part of a regular maintenance schedule you should regularly check your tyre wear and pressure and the condition of your strapping, cushion and backrest. You should also ensure your wheels lock into place tightly and your casters and wheels spin freely.

We have developed a series of sports wheelchair maintenance videos with our partners Max Wheelchairs.
