    Hi DeAnn, I got a new chair about a year ago. It took a good 6 months before I was comfortable in it AND could function.  At the beginning I could not even feed myself.  I was completely dependent on others and that is SO not me. I’m a stubborn one! 🙂


    But, finally after trying a gazillion different things, from my dad making/creating different devices to the rep coming out.

    What I’m trying to say is, first off, hang in there and keep trying different things at home.

    As far as your wheelchair company. Yes, keep pestering! This is your life we’re talking about! These are legs, arms and everything! Without it you can’t function at the level you’re used to. So, if I was you, if you’ve given the Rep a fair chance it’s time to go above his head! He must have a boss.

    Also, if you get no where with his bosses do you have a local chapter of MDA,Easterseals or even the local Independent Living Center. You could contact them. Because maybe someone there has experience working with your company and has an “in” with them or knows of someone who could fix your chair. I do believe that you could go to another company even to get different add-ons but I’m not 100%sure on that one.

    Ok, well, for what it’s worth those are my 2 cents.  Good luck to you!

    There are not many websites that provide customization options for wheelchairs. Sniff.


    Two suggestions though:

    1. Do an Etsy search for wheelchair accessories  – some options should pop up such as joystick knows, seat covers and armrest covers, etc


    2. Visit this site for a few options:


    Hope this helps a bit and good luck with new chair. My new permobil chair has literally changed my life! But it takes a while to get used to it.

    Hiya! On the Permobil on Android playstore is an app that will link to your chair. It’s pretty cool! They will tell you lots of stats on your chair as you use it.


    Also the controller on the chair can be used as a Switch to control things like your TV as an example.


    Check out the Permobil website for further info!


    Hope this helps!!  I love my chair!
