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.

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 are the classifications of mobility scooters?
●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.

The active wheelchair is a chair equipped with wheels that can help replace walking. It is an important mobile tool used for home rehabilitation, turnover transportation, medical treatment, and outing activities for the wounded, sick, and disabled. active wheelchairs not only satisfy the physically disabled and people with mobility impairments. More importantly, it is convenient for family members to move and take care of patients so that patients can exercise and participate in social activities with the help of wheelchairs.
Here is the content list:
l Active wheelchair size
l Active wheelchair range features
l Precautions for active wheelchairs
The most important consideration when choosing an active wheelchair is the size of the active wheelchair. The main body weight-bearing parts of wheelchair users are around the hip ischial tuberosity, around the femur, around the fossa, and around the scapula. The size of the wheelchair, especially the seat width, depth, height of the backrest, and the proper distance between the footrest and the seat cushion, will affect the blood circulation of the occupant's stress position, and cause skin abrasion and even pressure sores. In addition, the safety of the patient, the ability to operate, the weight of the wheelchair, the location of use, and the appearance should also be considered.
First of all, we must fully understand the equipment, how to use it, the functions of the buttons everywhere, don't buy things, and can't use it flexibly at critical moments, especially how to start and stop quickly, which can play a key role when encountering unexpected events. Keep the body clean and put it in a dry and ventilated place to prevent the fittings from rusting. Before using the active wheelchair and within one month, check whether the bolts are loose. If there is any looseness, fasten them in time. In normal use, check every three months to ensure that all parts are in good condition. Check all kinds of solid nuts on the wheelchair (especially the fixing nuts of the rear wheel axle). If they are loose, they need to be adjusted and tightened in time. Please check the tire usage regularly, repair the rotating parts in time, and add a small amount of lubricating oil regularly. Sometimes it is inevitable to get muddy water when going out or get wet by rain. Pay attention to timely cleaning and wiping the soil and applying anti-rust wax. Rainwater is too acidic. If the soil is not cleaned in time, the wheelchair will rust easily. At least visually. It affects its appearance. Keep the tire’s air pressure sufficient and not in contact with oil or acid to prevent deterioration. The connecting bolts of the active wheelchair seat frame are loosely connected, and it is strictly forbidden to tighten them. Frequently check the flexibility of the movable and rotating structure, and apply lubricant. If for some reason, the axle of the wheel needs to be removed, make sure that the nut is tightened and will not loosen when reinstalling.
Seat width When sitting down, the distance between the two hips or between the two strands, plus 5cm, that is, 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 get in and out of the gate. Seat length: Measure the horizontal distance from the hip to the calf gastrocnemius when sitting down, and subtract 6.5cm from the measurement result. 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. Seat height: 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.

A wheelchair handbike is generally structured with three wheels, which are transmitted by a manual device to the driving wheel to make it move. A wheelchair is an important tool for rehabilitation. It is not only a means of transportation for the physically disabled, but more importantly, it enables them to use the wheelchair to exercise and participate in social activities.
Here is the content list:
What are the characteristics of a wheelchair handbike?
What types of wheelchair handbike can be divided into?
What are the different materials used for wheelchair handbike?
Because of its large wheel diameter, a wheelchair handbike can adapt to a variety of roads. It is mainly used as a long-distance transportation tool outdoors and can load and plant goods appropriately. It has the characteristics of faster driving speed and labor-saving. The user's upper limbs drive the hand-cranked tricycle in the following ways: vertical rocking, pan rocking, and push-pull. Transmission devices include chain transmission, gear transmission, and connecting rod transmission. Generally, a wheelchair handbike has a manual brake device and a ramp brake device. In addition, it can also have gear shifting and reversing devices.
A wheelchair handbike, which adds a hand-cranked drive handle based on an ordinary wheelchair. The appearance of this wheelchair handbike is similar to that of an ordinary wheelchair, the body is smaller than a tricycle, and it is relatively lighter to use. It adopts chain drive, when both hands rotate synchronously, it can realize straight travel; the differential can realize turning, and the control is flexible.
Mainly divided into two categories: front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive. The front-wheel-drive wheelchair handbike has a simple structure and can be driven and steered with both hands or with one hand. However, this kind of wheelchair handbike has poor operational stability, and its climbing ability is worse than that of a rear-wheel-drive hand-cranked tricycle. The rear-wheel-drive wheelchair handbike is easier to operate, with less waist movement, and better climbing performance. But the transmission structure is more complicated.
According to the material, a wheelchair handbike can be divided into steel tube electroplating, aluminum alloy. Due to the addition of a driving device, the weight of a wheelchair handbike is about 5kg heavier than an ordinary wheelchair. The advantages of the steel tube electroplated wheelchair handbike is good toughness, slightly stronger shock absorption, and better comfort, but it is the heaviest of all materials.
Wheelchair handbike with aluminum alloy frame has the advantages of lighter weight, good repairability, moderate hardness, and strength, but because of its lighter weight, wheelchair handbike transmits vibrations to people when driving, and the comfort is not as good as that made of carbon steel. handbike.
It is the responsibility of each manufacturer to produce wheelchair handbikes that meet the standards, to ensure the safety of travel and the healthy development of the wheelchair handbike market. Wisking healthcare Corporation has conducted many tests on wheelchair handbikes before they leave the factory, and the quality qualification rate is guaranteed.
