Question about Drive Health & Beauty

1 Answer

I have a 1 1/2 year old Drive Wheelchair that was provided by Laundauer in New York City. I do not know the model #. It is not a small chair but rather a medium to large (but not really large) size. The front wheels are 3-4" and thick. Problems: 1--the black plastic foot rest has split off just leaving the steel rod that holds it. So it needs to be replaced. and 2- The smaller steel "L" pin that helps guide the leg rest to hi and lo positions is bent. I cannot get it in the lowest position. My husband is very tall and needs it in the lowest position and the release rod does not release to the required position. do you have a repair dealer anywhere in the West Dover/Bennington/Brattleboro, VT area? how do I get parts?

Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it, New York, New York

We have a hoverround that is not being used. We charge it frequently. But today we tried to move it and it is moving very slow. I know it was originally set to a slower setting. How can we speed it up?

Rev you would have to locate the provider that delivered the chair and ask if they can reprogram the chair for you. I don't remember the type of joystick the MPV 5 uses so I don't know what type of programmer would be needed to fix the upper speed setting. They could also check the batteries cause if they are 2-3 years old they could be a cause of the slower speed Hope this helps

My question is related to an Invacare-Nutron R51.Production date 1-7-03,joystick[MKIV R11] flashes red 1 time, than green 5 times repeatedly? Can you please tell me what this means.?

Ranch well the red flash indicates a low battery and the 5 flashes indicate a bad left brake. Now try charging the batteries until you get a green light on your charger then turn on the chair it shouldn't flash the red if the batteries are accepting the charge. If your batteries are 2-3 years old it could be time to change them. If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay most of the repair costs. You can contact your provider for help or a service company like Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 or Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733. If Medicare did buy the chair then you are eligible for a new chair every 5 years and yours is almost 8 years old. Contact a local provider that you trust to check into getting you a new chair. Hope this helps you

To slow, i need it to go faster

Are your batteries fully charged? Are the batteries 2 years old or older? Even with a full charge older batteries will not generate amperage to make the chair go as fast as when new. Also the motors tend to slow down with age due to brushes wearing down. Now, if the batteries are new and the motors are not that old then you need to find a wheelchair provider that has a PP1 programmer and have then check the settings for forward speed etc. If the speed is not set to 100 then they can increase the forward speed to 100%. Hope this helps you

The controller suddenly flashes idle mode...and something like must must complete whole cycle before using or something to that effect it disappeared from the screen before I could write it down

Julie If the chair is new - less than a year old it is under warranty so contact the provider that sold you the chair to have them fix the problem. If Medicare purchased the chair you can contact a service company to have them repair the chair for you and they will bill Medicare. Contact Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 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

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!!
