Hi. It's Joey. It isn't easy, but I deal with it as best as I can. Years ago, my caregiver and I were in line at Arby's, getting food. The next thing I knew, my chair wouldn't move! Was it charged? Yes. It wouldn't turn on, so she had to pop my clutches and push me.
With each chair I get (I run my stuff into the ground, so, about every 8 years) I really don't need a lot of major work done. You know, new wheels, new battery, new gel cushion-not much. But then it happens. Either I kill a motor or the control box (or joystick). I've had 3 control boxes/joysticks die in 18 years :O And, if you don't have that working, you have a 3-4 hundred pound manual chair-try moving that. *knocking on wood*
Hey, what did you think this was about?
