The procedure in maintaining the postural supports are:


Ø When the flip-up or swing-away in the supports, check that there is a free movement, and ensure that they are not too loose.


Ø Once you noticed that they are intact, check if they are properly tightened.


Ø You should know that loose bolts and nuts can finally loose and allow the support to drop. Also, too much tightening of bolt and nut that was loose can destroy bolt and housing.


Ø Proper tightening of the loose bolt with an open-end box wrench and/or Allen wrench is better. After the tightening, you should take note of red spots around the skin that are having contact with the main support.


However, if some red spots around the skin are discovered, you need to loosen the necessary part such as the support and consult an expert on wheelchair maintenance.

Ø When you identify problems, consult an expert on the maintenance of a wheelchair.


Ø The routine should be carried out every month.
