With the general population living longer than ever, health-care needs are growing exponentially.

Currently, statistics show more than 2.8 million Americans use a wheelchair for mobility, allowing greater independence in daily functioning, home life and vocational settings. All this wheelchair usage means there’s a lot of need for repair and maintenance of wheelchairs, along with other medical devices.

In a study led by Michael Boninger, of the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System, about 53 percent of wheelchair users reported one or more breakdowns requiring repair between 2006 and 2011.
