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.

Caution

Laboratory tests have shown that electromagnetic and radio frequency waves can have an adverse effect on the performance of electrically-powered mobility vehicles.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from sources such as cellular phones, mobile two-way radios (such as walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave signals, paging transmitters, and medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency vehicles. In some cases, these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control system. Every electrically-powered mobility vehicle has an immunity (or resistance) to EMI. The higher the immunity level, the greater the protection against EMI. This product has been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/m.

Crash Test Information for Wheeled mobility devices

Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your power chair while traveling in a motor vehicle. The power chair should be stowed in the boot of a car or in the back of a truck or van with the batteries removed and/or properly secured. In addition, all removable power chair parts, including the armrests, seat, front riggings, controller, and shrouds should be removed and/or properly secured during motor vehicle transport. If your power chair is equipped with a transit securement system, refer to section III of the user manual. “Your Power Chair” and the supplement provided with your power chair for additional information regarding power chair transport in a motor vehicle

Maintenance

Maintain and store in a clean and dry condition. Whenever possible, avoid exposure to rain, snow, ice, salt, or standing water.

Battery charger for indoor use only.

Prolonged exposure to hot or cold conditions may affect the temperature of upholstered and non-upholstered items on the power chair, possibly resulting in skin irritation. Exercise caution when using the power chair in extremely hot or cold conditions or when exposing your power chair to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
