Thank you for visiting our page for our wheelchair maintenance app!

We are trying to collect information about types and frequency of wheelchair breakdowns and repairs using a smartphone app.  This information will help us to track the types of wheelchair failures to inform wheelchair users.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked questions about yourself and your wheelchair and will be asked to log any breakdowns or failures of wheelchair parts in the app.  You will be compensated for your participation in this study.

Please note, at this time we can only enroll U.S. Citizens in the research study.
