To perform at its peak, the Transport Chair requires regular maintenance. Always ensure that it's working properly before use. Periodically, a trained technician or dealer should make inspections or repairs to keep the Transport Chair in good working condition.
To keep this product in proper working order, wipe the chrome with a clean cloth to protect the reinforced frame. If the chair is exposed to moisture, allow it to dry as quickly as possible to avoid damage from mold growth or rust. Every month, the metal parts of this product should be polished with an automobile wax. To clean the upholstery, use a mild soap, rinse, and wipe dry. Worn or torn upholstery is unsafe to support weight and should be replaced immediately.
Every month, the wheels should be inspected and balanced if necessary. To do this, loosen the lock nut on the axle, then tighten until side-play is removed. The solid-rubber tires do not require much maintenance but should be cleaned periodically with a damp cloth. If the tires begin to show signs of cracking or appear severely worn down, replace them as soon as possible.
