Mother Jones published an article detailing the impact service and repair consolidation has on wheelchair users. According to the article, Numotion and National Seating and Mobility (NSM), spent the last decade buying up smaller shops across the country, now controlling more than half of the wheelchair service industry.

Wheelchair users say this means longer wait times and poor quality service. When you rely on a powered wheelchair for mobility, any faulty or delayed repair has dangerous consequences. This underscores the importance of Colorado’s Wheelchair Right to Repair victory.

Tell the FTC: Stand up for Right to Repair

It's harder than it should be to fix our stuff. Manufacturers of every electronic product from toasters to tractors create barriers that stymie repair from owners or independent repair businesses. It's fueling a rise in electronic waste, the loss of independent repair businesses -- and ultimately more cost and more waste for consumers.
