Another wheelchair fail

I noticed as I was sitting in my chaise tonight that the controller arm was swinging way to the outside.

Sure enough, it has broken. A screw sheered in half, with part still in the controller.

It is not too shocking really. This same thing has happened three or four times in the past. The person I am working with to get a new chair specifically ordered a controller that isn't this poorly designed.

But the new chair is a ways away still, and I am left with this POS. It is made by a company named Pride Mobility; I hope the designers are aren't proud.

I am really sorry and cannot even imagine your frustration with Pride. I hope that your new wheelchair gets here soon. I have good luck with Invacare, Although My Tilt Feature Stopped Working Last Night and Is Not Good for my bottom and I am very uncomfortable. So, another thing to deal with on Monday.
