When do you decide to get a new wheelchair?
Recently I had a few minor repairs done on my chair. It’ll be six years old within the next month. The motors have been replaced once, other than that just routine stuff. Overall this really has been a good chair. Within the last week I noticed the slight squeak of the motors again. Now I’m debating if I should start the process for a new chair, work on getting motors replaced or do nothing and bide my time for a year or so. The wheelchair guy said that after about 7 years it can get harder to get parts. Honestly getting a new chair makes me a little nervous. I hated my last chair from day 1, but I love my current chair. I wouldn’t mind trying for some of the newer features, but this has been such a good chair and I’m not a fan of change. Plus I’d have to decide on make & model. How do you guys decide when it’s time for a new chair? How do you decide on what chair to get? I did a video a while back on choosing a chair, but I’d love your input.
