The wheelchair handbike generally has three wheels in structure, which are transmitted by a manual device to the driving wheels to make them move. A wheelchair is an important tool for rehabilitation. The wheelchair handbike 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. Next, let me explain it to everyone.

What is the development of the wheelchair handbike?
If you want to understand the wheelchair handbike, you must understand his development history.
In the world’s recognized history of wheelchair handbike, there are two earliest records. One is on a sarcophagus in the Southern and Northern Dynasties (525 AD). The sarcophagus is carved with a chair on wheels; the other is a vase depicting a similar pattern in ancient Greece. Things are about the same age as in China.
The earliest official record of wheelchair handbike in Europe is the medieval wheelbarrows, which need to be promoted by others, and are closer to contemporary nursing wheelchairs. In the 16th century AD, during the Renaissance, King Philip II of Spain suffered a stroke and ordered craftsmen to make a wheelchair. This wheelchair handbike was made of wood, which was very cumbersome and inconvenient, but for the disabled at that time, it was already a Very good tool too.
Around the 18th century, a wheelchair with a modern design appeared in the world, consisting of two large wooden front wheels and a single small wheel at the back, with a chair with armrests in the middle. And some assist handcycle handbikes with battery are electric wheelchairs.
Up to now, with the development of science and technology and the whims of mankind, the wheelchair handbike was born.
Manual wheelchairs are generally composed of seven parts: push hand, wheelchair frame, wheels, brake device, anti-falling device, seat back, and foot pedal. Others need to assist handcycle handbikes with battery.
1. Big wheels
Carry the main weight. The diameter of the wheelchair handbike is 51, 56, 61, 66 cm. Except for a few use environment requirements and solid tires, pneumatic tires are mostly used.
2. Small wheels
There are several kinds of diameters of 12, 15, 18, and 20cm. Small wheels with large diameters are easy to overcome small obstacles and special carpets. However, the large diameter makes the space occupied by the entire wheelchair larger and it is inconvenient to move. The normal small wheel is before the big wheel, but in the wheelchair handbike used by lower limb paraplegics, the small wheel is often placed behind the big wheel. It should be noted during operation that the direction of the small wheel should be perpendicular to the big wheel, otherwise it is easy to tip over.
What are the benefits of the wheelchair handbike?
A wheelchair handbike 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 perform physical exercises and participate in social activities; ordinary wheelchairs move forward through the user’s rotating side circle or the assistance of others. In the wheelchair handbike, the user can move forward by turning the crank or swing lever, which is more portable and flexible.
Wisking healthcare Corporation. has developed a variety of wheelchair handbike and conducted a lot of tests before leaving the factory to ensure the quality. This wheelchair handbike not only has a large exhaust capacity but also has strong endurance. If you are in the wheelchair handbike business, you can consider using 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.
Electric scooter makes use of high-tech composite materials to make the body, which has the advantages of impact resistance, corrosion resistance, toughness, not easy to damage, long life, and so on. Electric scooter for the elderly can be divided into 3 wheels and 4 wheels. In the design, the manufacturer does not simply apply the configuration of the original 2-wheel electric bicycle to the scooter for the elderly but separately configures the motor and controller for the mobility scooter. In terms of function, it is not the same as the 2-wheel electric bicycle, which should focus on the convenience and safety of the elderly. Next, take a closer look at mobility scooters.

How to maintain the electric scooter？
The general instruction manual has instructions on protecting the charger. Many users do not have the habit of looking at the instructions, in addition to the problem after thinking of looking for the instructions, often too late, so it is very necessary to look at the instructions first. To reduce costs, chargers are not designed for high vibration resistance, so chargers are generally not placed in the trunk and basket of the electric bicycle. Under special circumstances, it must be moved, and the charging device should be packed with foam plastic to prevent vibration and jolt. Many chargers after vibration, its internal potentiometer will drift, so that the whole parameter drift, resulting in an abnormal charging state. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to maintain the ventilation of the charger when charging, otherwise, it will not only affect the life of the charger but also may affect the charging state due to heat drift. This can cause damage to the battery. Therefore, protecting the charger is protecting the mobility scooter.
Do you know anything about electric scooters？
The control mode of the electric scooter is the same as that of the traditional mobility scooter, which is easy to be learned by the driver. It is equipped with a dismountable and foldable seat. Compared with the traditional electric bicycle, the structure is simple, the wheels are small, light, and convenient, and it can save a lot of social resources. In recent years, the rapid development of electric scooters with lithium batteries has given rise to new demands and trends. Early electric scooter use lead-acid batteries, iron frame, the external type motor, and the belt drive, although smaller than electric bicycle light, but not portable, its important progress is folded, it is a combination of lightweight, compact, evolved into the compact light small folding electric scooter, widely aroused the concern of the city users and began to pace.
Should electric scooters for the elderly be banned?
The main objection that many people make to mobility scooters for the elderly is "unsafe"! Why is it unsafe? One is that the scooter is not crashworthy, the other is that not obey the rules, no license, no insurance driving. The fact is that if electric scooter instead of walking and walk in the path of the non-motor vehicles, everyone obeys the traffic rules, so safety is guaranteed.
Wisking healthcare Corporation, a company that develops a variety of mobility scooters, conducts extensive testing before leaving the factory to ensure quality. These electric scooters not only have great mobility, but also great endurance. If you are engaged in the mobility scooter business, you can consider using our high-cost performance products.
At present, the world's aging phenomenon is intensifying, and the number of empty-nest elderly people is increasing. At the same time, the number of disabled people caused by various factors is increasing year by year. The physiotherapy and rehabilitation of such a large number of disabled and elderly people have become a major hot issue in society. For the elderly and the disabled who are unable to exercise independently, how to make them return to their normal lives while ensuring their safety, and reducing the pressure on family members, doctors and carers is the starting point of our project. Therefore, active wheelchairs have become a necessary choice for such groups.
Here is the content list:
l Problems faced by people with the inconvenience
l Structure-function of active wheelchair
l Active wheelchair range features
In the care and treatment of the elderly and the disabled who cannot take care of themselves, they face the following problems: patients have demands for autonomous activities, but they must rely on the help of others; family members cannot take care of patients around the clock; the ratio of doctors to patients in large hospitals is seriously unbalanced, The work intensity of nurses and nurses is high, and they cannot take good care of every patient. active wheelchairs can help the elderly or disabled people to carry out various activities in their daily lives without pressure, even participate in marathons and travel, and improve their quality of life.
Active wheelchairs have large wheels and carry the main weight. The diameter of the wheel is 51, 56, 61, 66 cm. Except for a few use environment requirements and solid tires, pneumatic tires are mostly used. active wheelchair wheels have several diameters of 12, 15, 18, and 20 cm. Small wheels with large diameters are easy to overcome small obstacles and special carpets. However, the large diameter makes the space occupied by the entire wheelchair larger and it is inconvenient to move. The normal small wheel is before the big wheel, but in wheelchairs used by lower limb paraplegics, the small wheel is often placed behind the big wheel. It should be noted during operation that the direction of the small wheel should be perpendicular to the big wheel, otherwise, it is easy to tip over. Active wheelchairs have brakes, and the big wheels should have brakes on each wheel. Of course, when hemiplegia can only use one hand, they have to use one-hand brakes, but extension rods can also be installed to control the brakes on both sides. The height, depth, and width of the active wheelchair seat depend on the patient's body shape, and the material texture also depends on the type of disease. Generally, the depth is 41, 43cm, the width is 40, 46cm, and the height is 45, 50cm.
There are many types of active wheelchairs on the market. According to the materials, they can be divided into the aluminum alloy, light material, and steel. Special wheelchairs can be divided into leisure sports wheelchair series, electronic wheelchair series, toilet wheelchair series, standing wheelchair series, and so on. The active wheelchair footrest has a fixed footrest or a detachable footrest, which can be folded when it is carried out or not in use. active wheelchairs are classified into hard seats, soft seats, pneumatic tires, or solid tires according to different models and prices. Among them, wheelchairs with fixed armrests and fixed footrests are cheaper.
So what kind of active wheelchair should we choose? It is the responsibility of each manufacturer to produce active wheelchairs that meet the standards to ensure the safe travel of people with disabilities. Wisking healthcare conducted a large number of connection tests on active wheelchairs before leaving the factory, and the quality assurance rate was guaranteed.

Sports wheelchairs are a type of active wheelchairs. Sports wheelchairs are different from ordinary wheelchairs. They have the characteristics of lighter weight, more flexibility, crash resistance, and shock absorption. Compared with ordinary wheelchairs, sports wheelchairs are faster. Next, let's take a look at the relevant knowledge of sports wheelchairs.
Here is the content list:
What are the characteristics of sports wheelchairs?
Where can sports wheelchairs be used?
1. Active wheelchair frame: The main frame of our sports wheelchair is made of aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy and carbon fiber. It can meet the needs of different customers.
2. Active wheelchair cushion/back cushion: It is sewn and formed with imported materials and flame-retardant Oxford cloth. The texture is soft, breathable, non-slip, smooth, and beautiful, and has high tensile strength. Also comes with a sponge cushion.
3 The front wear-resistant 4-inch PVC universal front wheel is equipped with an aluminum alloy front wheel fork; the rear 24-inch quick-release rear wheel has an excellent shock absorption function.
4. Frame, convenient to carry and travel, and can save space and location. Sports wheelchairs are generally lighter than ordinary wheelchairs.
Sports wheelchairs are very suitable for outdoor use.
1. Activities in the community or park. Some elderly people can only take short walks due to their poor legs and feet. Most of them sit on the benches in the community to rest or chat. However, because the benches in the community are mostly fixed, there are some inconveniences, such as sunbathing. They can't change the bench in the sun or in the scorching sun. Active sports wheelchairs are different. They can move around freely, sit and rest at any time, and stay where they want to stay, which is very convenient.
2. Active sports wheelchairs, as the name suggests, can also be used for sports. At the Paralympic Games, many people with disabilities have inconvenience in their legs and feet, so they need to sit in an active sports wheelchair to determine the winner. At the same time, for some disabled people, ordinary sports can also be carried out on sports wheelchairs on weekdays, such as playing basketball, etc., which can be done through wheelchairs, which is very convenient.
