When buying a lightweight wheelchair, pay attention to the seat width: measure the distance between the hips or between the two strands when sitting down. After adding 5cm, there is a gap of 2.5cm on each side after sitting down. The seat is too narrow, it is difficult to get on and off the wheelchair, but the hip and thigh tissues are compressed; the seat is too wide, it is difficult to sit firmly, it is inconvenient to operate the wheelchair, the limbs are easy to fatigue, and it is difficult to enter and exit the gate. Seat length of an electric wheelchair: Measure the horizontal distance from the hip to the calf gastrocnemius when sitting down, and reduce the measurement result by 6.5cm. If the seat is too short, the weight will mainly fall on the sit bones, which will easily cause excessive local pressure; if the seat is too long, it will compress the popliteal area and affect the local blood circulation, and it is easy to irritate the skin. For patients with short thighs or flexion contractures of the hips and knees, it is better to use a short seat. The seat height of a lightweight wheelchair: measure the distance from the heel (or heel) to the popliteal socket when sitting down, plus 4cm. When placing the pedals, the board should be at least 5cm above the ground. If the seat is too high, the wheelchair cannot enter the table; if the seat is too low, the seat bones will bear too much weight. The seat cushion of electric wheelchair In order to be comfortable and prevent bedsores, a seat cushion should be placed on the chair of the wheelchair. Common cushions are foam rubber cushions (5-10cm thick) or gel cushions. To prevent the seat from sinking, a 0.6cm thick plywood can be placed under the cushion.
Electromagnetic brake of lightweight wheelchair: It can only break when it is electric. Always pay attention to whether the tire pressure of the electric wheelchair is normal. This is the most basic. Wash the chair cover and leather backrest of the electric wheelchair with warm water and diluted soapy water. Always use a lubricant to maintain the electricity, but don't use too much to prevent the oil stains from staining the floor. Maintain general maintenance from time to time, and check whether the screws and screws are secure. Please use clean water to wipe the body of the car normally, avoid placing the lightweight wheelchair in a damp place and avoid knocking on the controller, especially the rocker; when carrying the electric wheelchair, please protect the controller strictly. When the controller is contaminated by food or beverages Please clean up immediately, use diluted cleaning fluid dampened with a cloth to wipe, avoid using abrasive or alcohol-based cleaning agents.
The battery of a lightweight wheelchair is the key to driving. The battery of high-end electric wheelchairs has a relatively high price in the market. Therefore, in the process of using electric wheelchairs, battery maintenance is very important. The problem that the battery is prone to be that there is no way to charge and it is not durable after charging. First, if the battery cannot be charged, check whether the charger is normal, and then check the fuse. Small problems basically occur in these two places. Secondly, the battery is not durable after charging, and the battery is worn out during normal use. Everyone should know this; the battery life will gradually weaken over time, which is normal battery loss; if it occurs suddenly Endurance problems are generally caused by the excessive discharge. Therefore, in the process of using the electric wheelchair, the battery must be diligent in maintenance. In the control parts of the lightweight wheelchair, the brake is a very important part, which is closely related to the personal safety of the user. Therefore, every time you use an electric wheelchair, you must check whether the brakes are normal. The reason why the brakes often fail is caused by the clutch and the rocker. Every time you travel with a lightweight wheelchair, check whether the clutch is in the "gear ON" position, and then check whether the rocker of the controller bounces back to the middle position. If it is not for these two reasons, it is necessary to consider whether the clutch or controller is damaged, then repair it in time, and avoid using a lightweight wheelchair when the brake is damaged.

Generally confined to a wheelchair, manual active wheelchairs are those that require human strength to move them. Manual wheelchairs can be folded, stored, or placed into vehicles, although modern wheelchairs are equally likely to be rigid frames. A general manual wheelchair is a general medical equipment shop for the sale of wheelchairs, roughly in the shape of a chair, four wheels, a large rear wheel, a hand wheel, a brake is added to the rear wheel, the front wheel is smaller, for steering, and an anti-roll wheel is added to the back of the wheelchair.
Applicable to general conditions, or short-term mobility is not suitable for sedentary. Electric wheelchair, an electric wheelchair is a wheelchair with an added electric motor and means of navigation control. Usually, a small joystick is mounted on the armrest instead of manual power for wheelchair movement. Depending on the mode of operation, it can be controlled by rocker, head or suction system, and other switches. Electric wheelchairs are a good option for people with severe paralysis or who need to travel a great distance, as long as their cognitive abilities are good, but they require a lot of room.
Firstly, an electric wheelchair can stand upright or lie down. It can stand and walk but also become a recliner. Secondly, the sofa seat is more comfortable. Simple structure, strong electric power, electromagnetic brake (automatic parking brake, parking in half slope). Thirdly, this is a special feature for a lightweight wheelchair. Because of the materials used, the electric lightweight wheelchair will be very light, easy to carry, and easy to push by the caregiver. This type of lightweight wheelchairs also has a feature that suitable for the trip. There are even electric wheelchairs that can climb hills, the scope of application of electric wheelchairs is further expanded.
Electrically powered wheelchairs are more environmentally friendly, electric wheelchairs would be more environmentally friendly if they were made of biodegradable materials. Whether lithium-ion or maintenance-free lead-acid batteries are used, they are undeniably environmentally friendly when properly handled. Of course, users should be aware that if you want to scrap an electric wheelchair, make sure that their batteries are properly disposed of.
Finally, you must pay attention to safety when using an electric wheelchair, especially if you are the only person without supervision. If you are in the electric wheelchairs business, you can consider our cost-effective products.
Mobility scooter, also called the lazy car, refers to transportation and auxiliary tools for the purpose of transportation. In China, it can sometimes refer to cars, electric bicycles, electric mobility scooters, two-wheel self-balance mobility scooters, and unicycle balance mobility scooters. It is used for people with mild disabilities and elderly people who have limited mobility but have not yet lost their mobility. In order to provide convenient auxiliary devices to achieve the purpose of providing labor-saving and increasing movement and living space. Electric mobility scooters in old age quickly occupied the mobility scooter market due to their advantages of simplicity, ease of operation, economy, and practicality, and are very popular among the elderly and people with disabilities. In recent years, new energy electric mobility vehicles have become popular, providing new mobility options for users who pay attention to practicality, safety, and economic convenience.

●What should I pay attention to when using a mobility scooter?
The compact body of the mobility scooter brings a flexible driving experience. It can shuttle freely in alleys or urban congested roads, making travel easier and more efficient, and avoiding the trouble of "difficult parking". At the same time, the charging mode does not rely on traditional charging piles, and household 220V can complete convenient charging, and it only costs 5 cents per kilometer to achieve "light cost" travel. In terms of practicality, the mobility scooter adopts the design concept of "minimizing mechanical space and maximizing riding space", with a three-meter body layout of three seats, creating a spacious and comfortable riding environment. The rear seats support flat laying down. In terms of safety, the mobility scooter will be equipped with a high-strength steel body frame design, and the proportion of high-strength steel in the entire body will reach more than 57%. The mobility scooter comes standard with an ABS anti-lock braking system, EBD braking force distribution, tire pressure monitoring, and reversing radar functions, and the safety configuration also allows users to travel at ease.
The two-wheeled mobility scooter is based on a basic principle called "dynamic stability", which is the automatic balancing ability of the vehicle itself. The built-in precision solid-state gyroscope is used to judge the body's posture state, and after the appropriate instructions are calculated by the precision and high-speed central microprocessor, the motor is driven to achieve the effect of balance. The fastest speed of the new type of mobility scooter can reach 15 kilometers per hour, while the average walking speed is 3 to 5 kilometers per hour. This kind of transportation allows people to ride in the city without obstacles. There are also four-wheeled mobility scooters used by the elderly, which are convenient to use, safe and comfortable.
The mobility scooter should drive according to the road conditions, mainly to avoid bumpy roads. Be sure to slow down when going uphill, on the bridge, or driving heavy loads against the wind. This can avoid the battery's large current discharge, reduce the impact damage of the battery, and also increase the battery's endurance and service life. When driving a mobility scooter in winter, try not to increase the horsepower to the maximum, so that it can avoid the phenomenon of insufficient power due to the decrease of the battery capacity in the low-temperature state, and it is also conducive to prolonging the service life of the battery. Charge in time, and do not lose power when the mobility scooter is stored. It is prone to sulfation when the battery is stored in a power-deficient state. Lead sulfate crystals adhere to the plate, blocking the ion channel, causing insufficient charging, and reducing battery capacity. The longer the idle time in the power-deficient state, the more serious the battery damage. Therefore, when the mobility scooter is not in use, it should be recharged once a month to better maintain battery health. Avoid high-current discharge, and try to avoid instantaneous high-current discharge when the mobility scooter starts, carries people or goes uphill. High-current discharge can easily lead to lead sulfate crystals, thereby damaging the physical properties of the battery. Correctly grasp the charging time. During the use of the mobility scooter, it is difficult to accurately grasp the charging time according to the actual situation, refer to the usual frequency of use and mileage, and also pay attention to the capacity description provided by the battery manufacturer, as well as the performance and charging of the supporting charger Parameters such as the size of the current can be used to control the charging frequency. Generally, the battery is charged at night, and the average charging time is about 8 hours. If it is shallow discharge (the driving range is short after charging), the battery will be fully charged soon, and overcharge will occur if the battery continues to charge, which will cause the battery to lose water, heat, and reduce the battery life. Therefore, the battery discharge depth is 60%. It is best to charge it once at 70%, and it can be converted into riding mileage in actual use. Charge it according to the actual situation to avoid damaging charging.
Today, mobility scooter technology has been well developed. And the degree of automation is very high. So how should we choose the right mobility scooter? Shanghai Wisking conducts a large number of connection tests on the mobility scooter before leaving the factory to ensure the quality assurance rate. If you are in the mobility scooter business, you can consider using our cost-effective products.
The control method of the electric scooter is the same as that of the traditional electric bicycle, which is easy to be learned by the driver. It is equipped with a detachable and foldable seat. Compared with the traditional electric bicycle, the structure is simpler, the wheels are smaller, and the wheels are lighter and simpler, which can save a lot of social resources. In recent years, the rapid development of lithium battery electric scooters has spawned new demands and trends.
Here is the content list:
What factors will affect the endurance of electric scooters?
How to distinguish between a sine wave and square wave control of mobility scooter?
How to choose tires for a mobility scooter?
Only in terms of software and hardware, it does not include the factors of the user and the use environment. Four key points affecting battery life: battery capacity, motor power, motor control method, and tires.
1) The battery of an electric scooter: The battery has the greatest impact on battery life. It is strongly recommended to buy a scooter that uses imported batteries. First, the battery conversion rate and energy density are higher, that is, the imported battery capacity is larger under the same volume and weight. At present, the single capacity of domestic batteries is 2000 or 2200, and the single capacity of imported batteries is 2600 or 3200, which is equivalent to 30% more battery life. The second is safe and secure. At present, there are too many examples of spontaneous combustion and explosion of scooter balance vehicles, all of which are caused by the use of inferior batteries.
2) Motor power of electric scooters: the greater the power, the better, there is too much waste, and too little is not enough. At the same time, the power selection of the hub motor is also related to the wheel diameter, speed, torque, and so on. Take a scooter with a wheel diameter of 8 inches as an example. The motor power can be in the range of 250W~350W. Each motor has an optimal power range. This is related to the output curve of the motor. The output power of the general cruising speed is just in this optimal range. inside.
3) Motor control mode of electric scooter: square wave control and sine wave control have their advantages and disadvantages. Swing wave control is comfortable, linear acceleration, high cost, low power consumption, and low sound. Square wave control is simple and rude, cheap and stable, accelerating straight, starting rush, cruising, and power saving. Generally, it is recommended to use sine wave control products. A good sine wave control product has higher requirements for the technical capabilities of the enterprise and pays more attention to the user experience. The overall energy utilization efficiency is 5 to 7% higher than that of square wave control.
4) The tires of electric scooters: the driving wheel has high friction and the driven wheel has low friction and high endurance, and vice versa.
Sine wave control is to turn the handle slightly under no load. At this time, the motor starts softly and smoothly and continues to accelerate to the highest speed. Under load, it starts softly without rushing, and there is no abnormal noise, quiet and comfortable; while the square wave controller is quiet and comfortable. When the handle is rotated a little under load, the motor will accelerate a little. Under load, there will be a lot of noise at the start, and the start is more aggressive, so it is not suitable to be manipulated.
The mainstream mobility scooter on the market has a two-wheel design, some of which are three-wheel designs (front three wheels or rear three wheels). Two-wheel design is recommended, which is flexible, safer in turning, cheap and reliable (the price of fewer wheels and suspension structure), Lightweight and compact. The wheel diameters are 4.5, 6, 8, 10, 11.5 inches, and the common ones are 6, 8, 10 inches. It is recommended to choose large wheel diameters, such as 8 inches and 10 inches, which have high safety passing and good steering. Because the smaller the wheels of the mobility scooter, the easier it is to fall when turning. There are 4 types of tires at the same time, solid tire, honeycomb solid tire, tube-type pneumatic tire, tubeless tire (tubeless pneumatic tire). It is not recommended to choose pneumatic tires for small wheel diameters. It is too easy to burst. It is recommended to choose pneumatic tires for 8 inches and above. The shock absorber through pneumatic tires does not require additional mechanical shock absorbers. Here is a point to note, pneumatic tires must be selected tires The width is more than 40, don't choose too narrow.
It is the responsibility of each manufacturer to produce mobility scooters that meet the standards, to ensure the safety of travel and the healthy development of the scooter market. Wisking healthcare Corporation. has conducted many tests on mobility scooters before they leave the factory, and the quality qualification rate is guaranteed.
