General Details

Caution: Powered Wheelchairs & Scooters

This item should be trialled in the user's home environment to ensure maximum safety and independence. Environmental considerations include kerbs, footpaths, road, railway crossing, etc.
Users should take care when riding a scooter or powered wheelchair and observe the following safety guidelines:
• Users who intend to use scooters or powered wheelchairs must ensure they have the necessary physical and cognitive skills to operate and manoeuvre them safely
• Stay within the legal speed limit of 10km/h
• Be aware that taking medication or driving under the influence of alcohol may affect the user's judgement
• Always make sure that you are clearly visible, particularly at night or on dull days-use the lights and reflectors and install a reflective flag high enough to be seen by motorists
• Wear a bicycle helmet whenever possible
• Slow down when you are near other people, especially pedestrians and cyclists
• Avoid stopping or driving on inclines greater than your scooter or powered wheelchair is designed for
• Use footpaths if possible. If there are no foot paths, plan to user quieter roads
• Plan your trip and avoid uneven surfaces, dips and potholes
• Ensure if you are carrying parcels that the load will not over-balance your scooter or powered wheelchair and the parcels do not interfere with your controls or vision.
