My quickie wheelchair joy stick is no good. The equipment store where I bought it 5 years ago took a look at it and told me it would cost $600 to replace it. I am a 70 yr old single woman who has no family and lives alone. I don't want to go into a nursing home. I am so frightened. How can I get it fixed reasonably.?..I live off SS check. Please help me, someone. God will bless you.

My dad lives off social security as well and he called The scooter store in witch fixed his chair for no cost to him as he needed it for his disability. I am not saying that the would od the same for you it all depends on the situation but I would give them a try it would not hurt to give them a call.

Medical/Medicare supposed to replace a mobility device every 5 years does yours fall under that category? Well if it does call The Scooter Store you be glad you did as they can fix and replace the chair if need be.

You also may want to look at your local charities such as the catholic church tell them your situation and boy I have seen some Charity's not only pay for the repair the help in other different capacities. We here would not know to much to get a 70 year old to do a do it yourself type of thing as it requires special tools and so on.

However in your community I am sure there are services that will fix your chair and then some. I know I would!

So to recap

!. Call The scooter Store
2. Check local charities such as salvation army, Goodwill etc.
3. Check medical/medicare and see if this can be fixed with no out of pocket cost.

Thanks For using

Wheel nut fell off

Since you already know what kind of nut you need, go to the local bolt supply house and get a nut. I would think you could also order the parts online for the chair.

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

I think you have locked your controller, or put it in "sleep mode". Turn on the chair again and push the joystick forward, then to reverse, then forward again and release. It should fire up. Let us know if that worked.

many wheelchair companies would love to sell you a new chair, because that is how they make most of their money. If you check around, many of the durable home medical equipment companies can special order parts for wheelchairs and scooters and also repair your chair as well. Have you tried to contact Guardian via their website to see if they can give you a list of local vendors? Let me know if I can give you more suggestions or help you find a vendor. GOOD LUCK and God Bless!!
