Unlike a car, you don't have to send in your Eloflex electric wheelchair for regular servicing. However, regular maintenance can significantly extend its lifetime and enhance performance. Here are a few basic tips and guidelines.


Taking good care of your Eloflex not only ensures that it will last longer – it also improves handling, extends the driving range and minimizes the risk of problems.

  • Regularly clean your Eloflex, but never rinse it with running water or a high-pressure washer. Instead, use a damp cloth to wipe it clean.  

  • Always dry your Eloflex when you get home after trips in wet conditions.

  • Recharge the batteries every three months if you do not use your Eloflex on a regular basis.

  • Store your Eloflex indoors in a dry and frost-free environment.
