Reducing barriers to wheelchair repair!
Wheelchair Repair Workshops
Wheelchair repairs are costly and can take months to get done through insurance. We want to empower people with the knowledge and networks to get their wheelchairs repaired quickly and efficiently. These workshops are for people with disabilities as well as bike shop workers willing to provide wheelchair service.
During this session, you will:
- Learn about the different types of wheelchairs.
- Get hands-on experience with cleaning, lubrication, and adjustments.
- Take home the tools you need for preventative maintenance!
Registration is required, see details below.
Philadelphia - November 21, 6:30pm - This workshop is hosted by Neighborhood Bike Works! Registration now closed.
