Web-Based Maintenance Training

Wheelchair Maintenance

Thank you for visiting our page on web-based maintenance training! 

Research Opportunity:

We are trying to determine if a web-based training program is effective at improving wheelchair maintenance skills. We are recruiting individuals for this research study that use a wheelchair for a majority of their mobility.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked questions about yourself, your wheelchair, and your knowledge of wheelchair maintenance. The training program can be started or stopped at any time. You will be compensated for your time for participating in this study.

Please note, at this time we can only enroll U.S. Citizens in the research study.

If you would like to access the training without being part of the research study, click here.

We have also created PDF factsheets with tips for wheelchair maintenance and preventing breakdown.
