Mobility Repair and Service your Aid Care Mobility Equipment at Gilani Engineering

Mobility Repair and Service your Aid and Care Mobility Equipment at Gilani Engineering

At Gilani Engineering our technicians and engineers can repair, maintain and customise your aid and care mobility and rehabilitation equipment such as wheelchairs, lifters, beds, walkers, hoists accessibility solutions, ramps, and handrails.

 

Disability equipment aid and care mobility repair under NDIS funding:

If you have Assistive Technology (AT) supports funded in your NDIS plan, then you should also have funding for repairs and maintenance.

Funding for repairs and maintenance can be in two places in your plan.

Consumables budget in CORE

This can be used for repairing or replacing low cost AT or simple repairs and maintenance.

Assistive Technology (AT) budget in CAPITAL

This can be used for other repairs and maintenance. Some plans may have repair and maintenance line items to assist.

Keeping your AT working for you and preparing for the unexpected

AT usually requires regular maintenance and care to keep it working well and minimise breakdowns. You can simply develop a maintenance schedule with Gilani Engineering and if you wish we can send you reminders to keep the schedule in the loop.

Breakdowns and urgent repairs often occur unexpectedly, so participants are encouraged to contact their preferred repair provider whenever you get a new plan or buy a new item of AT.

Repairing AT damaged in a natural disaster will be classified as an urgent repair. This extends to hiring a replacement item where needed (e.g. the AT is destroyed or significantly damaged) until a more permanent solution is available.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1- How much does it cost to repair a wheelchair?

 

2- How do you service a wheelchair?

Manual wheelchair users are not excluded from the need to perform regular wheelchair maintenance. The effects of not maintaining a manual wheelchair include wheelchair breakdown and being without mobility.

Steps for Maintaining a Manual Wheelchair

  1. Clean manual wheelchairs often and we recommend every 2-3 weeks
  2. Inspect for wear & tear
  3. Tighten hardware such as seating components such as caster/forks. Listen for sounds your wheelchair doesn’t normally make as this is a good indicator a part is loose.
  4. Inspect seating components such as cushion, seat sling, and back support
  5. Adjust as needed such as wheel locks and tire pressure adjustments
  6. Proactive replacement such as tires, casters, and upholstery
3- How often should a wheelchair be serviced?

General maintenance should be done weekly. This includes cleaning the wheelchair and checking the wheels.

Servicing should be done annually or when a noticeable change occurs. This includes if you notice a damaged wheel or a dent in the wheelchair.

4- How long is a wheelchair supposed to last?

With some general maintenance and regular checks to keep your wheelchair in good working order, you should expect it to last for around five years.
