The goal of this project was to create a wheelchair maintenance resource for the Department of Mental Retardation consisting of a website, a checklist and a manual. The manual gives systematic instructions on how to perform maintenance, while the checklist gives an overview of the manual. The website includes variously formatted copies of the checklist and manual as well as information to contact manufacturers and service centers. The products were each carefully evaluated in order to create revised final products.
