You might check that out with your local Easter Seals, they can do evaluations, for wheelchairs, they are great with me, and only requires a doctors note, to make the appointment, take it to Easter Seals, and ask them if they can do a wheelchair evaluation, if they purchased through medicare, they should be able to writeup some changes and have those things fixed thru medicare, don't let him just stick with it, That doesn't sound very safe.

Serial 351985 number hoveround

The serial number typically does not have any involvement with Medicare but is used by manufacturers and DME providers to track the chairs. The true definition of what is a group 2 power chair would take a long time to explain but single option Group 2 chairs are coded: K0835-K0840 for single power option and K0841-K0843 for multiple power option.

The specific code depends on the specific chair the person meets medical coverage criteria for. The Hoveround MPV5 you have pictured would typically be K0836 - Power wheelchair, group 2 standard, single power option, captains chair, patient weight capacity up to and including 300 pounds

Sorry but you should of removed the batteries from the chair while in storage or at least disconnected the cables. If Medicare paid for the chair then they may pay for reair if the batteries are under 6 months old then they should be under warranty contact your provider that sold you the chair Hope this helps

Batteries are old and dont fully charge, what is the best new battery to get that will fit please

Do you have insurance or Medicare reimbursement? Start with the manufacture of your chair.
If you don't need "medical grade" batteries Interstate Batteries or Batteries Plus can inspect your old ones, and get you new exact size/power replacements at a much lower cost.
Just talk to your local auto repairman to find the Interstate Rep. or look in the yellow pages for your nearest Batteries Plus.

Feel free to ask any other questions you may have.

Hi! My MK5 power chair has started to quit working in the middle of a ramp. All of the lights blink quickly 6 times and then pauses and then starts again. Any ideas what that may be? Thanks! Barb

Barb If you have an Invacare chair then the 6 flashes indicate a right park brake fault. Unfortunately you cannot just order a brake for your chair. If Medicare paid for your chair then you can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have them repair your chair and bill Medicare for most of the repair cost. Hope this helps

Angel Did you buy the chair or was it gotten through Medicare? If Medicare paid for the chair then they will pay most of the repair costs. If you purchased the chair you can go to and look up your chair or call 1-800-800-8586 and ask for Tech support for a Jazzy chair and they should be able to help you. If Medicare paid for your chair your Provider where you got the chair can order the joystick for you and bill Medicare or you can buy the joystick through them (provider) Hope this helps you

I charge my jet 3 ultra with the cord but as soon as i remove the cord it dies what do I do? I no longer have the instruction manual

jaeger How long have you had the chair? And have you changed the batteries or had them changed within the last year? The problem could be the batteries. If the were run down or not charged for a long time then your charger cannot pick them up enough to reach a full charge or in your case no charge at all. Now if the batteries are fairly new but have run down the problem could be the charger. If you have a digital voltmeter and your Jazzy has an on-board charger -- plug in the charger then put the test leads in the charger port two outter plug holes under the front of the joystick set the meter to 200 volts dc. You should read up to 30 volts with the charger plugged in. Now unplug the charger and you will read the battery voltage it should read 24-27 volts. If when you have the charger plugged in and you don't read up to 30 volts then the charger is bad If after charging overnite and you don't read 24-27 volts the the batteries are bad If Medicare purchased your chair then you can call a service company to repair your chair and they will bill Medicare for the cost of the repair. Medicare will pay 80% of the cost. You can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have a tech come out and rpair your chair. Hope this helps you

I don't know where my moms wheelchair was purchased, to see if it is still under warrantee

DJ, Did Medicare purchase your Mom's chair? You can contact Sunrise Medical at 1-800-333-4000 and ask if the chair is under warranty. You will have to give them the chair's serial number.

If the chair is less than a year old then all the parts are under warranty except the batteries. If it is not under warranty and Medicare purchased her chair contact Repair Xpress at 1-877-581-3733 to get it repaired medicare will cover 80% of the repair costs Hope this helps you

Raine you need to purchase two U1 batteries for your Jet 3. I would check locally with a battery outlet store first because your cost can be less that $200.00 for both batteries this way. If the on-line comany wants more than $200.00 for the 2 batteries plus shipping I would look hard in the local area. Hope this helps
