Living Life In A Wheelchair

Repairs To The Wheelchair

I've found the probable reason why my power wheelchair suddenly died less than a minute from my home last night. There are actually two reasons:

  • The straps that keep the batteries snug in position had come loose. This allowed the connection which joins the batteries in series to come loose. This is extremely easy to fix.
  • Also a clip for the second strap has cracked. Power wheelchairs typically use plastic buckle clips. I have a set of them here. Today I will replace these and my power wheelchair will be fine again.
