Summary

Usually, an owner of a powered wheelchair must seek diagnostic,
maintenance, or repair services of the wheelchair from the manufacturer.

The bill requires a manufacturer to provide parts, embedded
software, firmware, tools, or documentation, such as diagnostic,
maintenance, or repair manuals, diagrams, or similar information, to
independent repair providers and owners of the manufacturer's powered
wheelchairs to allow an independent repair provider or owner to conduct
diagnostic, maintenance, or repair services on the owner's powered
wheelchair. A manufacturer's failure to comply with the requirement is a
deceptive trade practice. In complying with the requirement to provide
these resources, a manufacturer need not divulge any trade secrets to
independent repair providers and owners.
Any new contractual provision or other arrangement that a
manufacturer enters into that would remove or limit the manufacturer's
obligation to provide these resources to independent repair providers and
owners is void and unenforceable.
