Maintaining Your Ride: Cushion Care & Maintenance

This is our first blog in the series Maintaining Your Ride.

We maintain so many things within our lives. We take care of ourselves and our homes, and we regularly maintain our vehicles and bikes, so why would wheelchair and seating components be any different? Wheelchairs and seating components are high performance pieces of equipment that need to be maintained and upkept. In this series we are going to go over specific ways to clean and maintain your power wheelchair, manual wheelchair, and seating and positioning products. As always please refer to your owner’s manual specific to whatever piece of equipment you are using. The owner’s manual is a great resource that contains information specific to your equipment. If you have misplaced your owner’s manual, most manufacturers have digital copies that are available online for download. You can find Permobil owner manuals here.
