"Maintaining Your Ride"

 
  Now, more than ever, is an important time to be thinking about how to keep cushions, manual and power wheelchairs clean!  We are all washing our hands more than ever, and wheelchair users and clinicians who work with them need to understand how to apply this to wheelchairs.  
     Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) requires attention, care and maintenance to make sure it can perform to the highest capacity for each individual.  the more that an individual can manage and take care of equipment, the longer it will last as well.
