      After two years of non-use, the battery may no longer be any good, in spite of trying to charge it. I would recommend having the battery checked first (you can do this at a gas station) and if it is not any good, look into replacing it first. This is usually an easy procedure for a family member or attendant.

      If it still doesn't work, you probably will have to get it to a DME who deals in this brand of chair.
