Where can I get spare parts for obsolete wheelchair

I live in Manchester (uk) and am looking for some spare parts for my, now obsolete, Everest & Jennings Imperial Recliner.

I currently use this as a shower chair.

without going into too much personal detail, owing to the severity of my disability, all of the alternatives that the authorities have given me to try out have been unsuitable

I know that E & J were taken over by an American Company (Graham Field health products) quite some time ago, but was wondering if the company had a uk subsidury outlet/partner from who I could get some advice on the matter?

I know there is a lot of E & J stuff on Amazon, etc, but I don't have an account, as I am rather nervous about putting any financial details on the web, besides I would
much rather talk to a person about things. (novel as that idea may be these days!!)

Many thanks

    Not sure. What parts are you looking for? Can the part be repaired maybe, if you someone has the right skills. You probably know this already, but sometimes parts from wheelchairs are interchangeable. Maybe try emailing graham Fields inc, to ask about UK outlets, the email address is cs@grahamfield.com

    Hope you get something sorted, it might help to have a photo of the part you require.
