This IQP was sponsored by the Department of Mental Retardation to conduct a pilot study on manual wheelchair maintenance. Previous IQPs created a wheelchair maintenance manual and website. We revised these documents to create a simplified online handbook that focused on improving communication between the staff and wheelchair vendors. Use of the handbook was tested at four DMR group homes. Some improvement in the direct care staff's knowledge was shown, but an online resource proved impractical given limited computer access in DMR homes.
