The Massachusetts Department of Mental Retardation (MDMR) has noticed that many wheelchairs are not properly maintained. This problem and possible solutions have been explored through research via the Internet and public libraries, and interviews with wheelchair users, parents, care providers, and maintenance professionals. A website and an instructional video have been created to assist people in performing proper preventative wheelchair maintenance . These resources have been submitted to MDMR with a distribution plan, and recommendations for testing the effectiveness after implementation.
