Today’s we wanted to chat about the service and maintenance options available to you (or a loved one) with regards to mobility aids and assisted devices.
In many cases this equipment is essential for day-day life, and if it were to break, well, that can be an accident waiting to happen.

Get in touch with us
We’ll provide a price estimate and service timeframe
We can check if the repairs are covered under warranty or by your insurance plan
An in-home or in-store service and repair appointment can be scheduled at a time that suits you
This depends on the type of equipment, and if it’s being serviced for a specific reason.
A general service will include a comprehensive safety check, and may also include “where relevant” things like a pressure clean and dry, fixing
or replacing spokes, wheel/castor alignment, inspecting frames for cracks, tightening bolts and screws and more!
Weather can be unpredictable, and a rain shower or storm may start when you’re already out.
Although your electric mobility aids should be able to withstand a little bit of water exposure, they need to be protected from prolonged water exposure.
Otherwise, you can expect some not-so-nice rust (and even possible malfunction and other damage).
Thoroughly dry your power equipment with a towel as soon as you can (making sure all surfaces are dry) and store in a dry place when not in use
After water exposure, check the operation and brakes before using again for safety
If there are any problems or issues, call us immediately so we can help evaluate the condition of your equipment, and advise if you need a service or repair to get you things back running smoothly
Service and maintenance technicians will make sure your equipment is safe, comfortable and completely functional
Regular servicing actually helps reduce the likelihood of major, more costly repairs down the track, saving you $$$ in the long-term
Having a yearly service of your equipment helps keep it in tip top shape! Don’t worry about remembering when your next service is due, we’ll keep rack and send you a reminder!
We can also repair healthcare equipment and have spare replacement parts available too (like new batteries). We’ve even helped with lost/damaged scooter keys that need to be replaced, ASAP!
Let us know what you need and we’ll be happy to assist you.
Wishing you well. Take care,
The RKMRS Team
