The best identification for this wheelchair is the model and serial number (SN) tag located on the frame crossbar. With the SN you can look up the exact parts delivered and used on this WC. The prefix of the SN , for example 96D, indicates a year of 1996, month of April (D or fourth month). To find parts diagrams and components for this model go to Invacare.com. At the Invacare home page you will see a tab "parts catalog", click on it. In product category select manual wheelchairs. In parts catalog choose Patriot wheelchair. In page in catalog select front rigging. There are many choices in front rigging but you can identify the parts you need by looking at the pictures. The 70 degree footrests are the most common. Once you have determined the type you need they can be purchased retail at The Aftermarket Group.com (TAG). The Aftermarket Group sells parts and the complete footrest assemblies, the manufacturer ,Invacare, sells only through dealers. There are pictures and diagrams on both websites. TAG pictures of front rigging are better and easier to understand for the WC client. The Invacare website is geared more towards WC professionals. Hope this helps.
