Question about Probasics Full Reclining Wheelchairs Removable Desk Arms, 16", Padded Elevating Legrests

1 Answer

My mother has a 1818R Probasics full reclining wheelchair. The front caster fork assembly bent, probably due to the fact that we take the chair out on walks in forest preserves. Where can I get a replacement front caster fork assembly--preferably a heavy-duty piece? Thanks! Tom Bowman

Look in your Yellow Pages or online for a local Durable Medical Equipment Provider. They may have a part in stock if you are not able to get one from the manufacturer, or they can refer you to a local dealer. Probasics aka Professional Medical Imports: 800-438-0503

I need to replace the tires and casters on my probasics wheelchair. I am not sure what I should order and whether the tires come on the wheels ot what.


As a general rule, it is best to replace the caster as a complete assembly consisting of tire and wheel hub. Usually this is the only way to replace casters when the tire is molded on to the wheel hub. It is the best way to replace the caster since you get a tire, wheel hub and 2 new bearings.
With regard to the drive wheels on a manual wheelchair you can get just a new tire. With a plastic mag wheel and hand-rim you can sometimes get just a replacement snap-on tire to replace the existing.(Snaps on like a rubber band using tire irons). If the hand-rim, wheel, spokes, and bearings are worn or broken, you are usually better off replacing the wheel assembly. With power chairs, it is more cost effective to only replace the drive tires and use the existing wheel rims. Hope this helps.

How do you raise the metro to make it sit higher off the floor? Is it adjustable


This mnaual wheelchair has dual position rear axles and caster forks to allow seat to floor height changes with no additional components. What this means is that the wheelchair is adjustable in height based upon the position of the front caster wheel axles and rear wheel axles. Raising the axles lowers the chair. Lowering the axle postion raises the chair. If the rear axles of the rear wheels are in the top position you can lower the wheels and raise the chair. Likewise, if the caster axles of the front wheels are in the top hole of the fork then put the wheels and axles in the lower hole to raise the chair. It is easy to accomplish this with basic tools.
If the front and rear wheels are already in the lower holes (the chair is in its highest position) you have another option. This option is a more expensive way to raise the chair by buying 4 new wheels. Lets say for example you have 24" diameter rear wheels. If you purchase new 26" diameter wheels you will raise the chair 1". If you have 6" casters and put on 8" casters this raises the chair 1" in the front. Hope this helps.

Banging noises like steel hitting steel when turning-what is the problem


Make sure that the deck cover fenders is not hitting your drive tires. Check the bearings in your caster wheel assembly to ensure the casters can turn freely. The back outrigger has a pinch bolt in the middle, tighten it all the way then back off 1/2 turn.
If these do not help, you may have damaged the frame, axles or mounting bracket for the motor. This can happen when the rider weighs too much for the power chair or the power chair has been dropped onto the ground.
If you continue to have problems, contact Pride for Tech Support.
Good luck!

Changing the dual axle on an Invacare recliner to lower seat


You will need to remove the rear tires and front casters. If you look at the front caster fork there should be some extra holes where you can re-position the caster wheel. Likewise on the hole where the rear tires mounts there should be a hole above it where you can re-mount the tire. So just move the caster and wheel up to the next hole. If there are no holes to move up to then you cant lower the chair. The only other options would be to install a drop seat which you`ll have to purchase from a dealer or install smaller wheels and casters. So, for instance,say you have 8" casters and 24" wheels you would then install 6" casters and 22" wheels. Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.
