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. 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.
It is the responsibility of each manufacturer to produce active wheelchairs that meet the standards to ensure the safe travel of people with disabilities.

What is the benefit of a wheelchair handbike?
Wheelchair Handbikes provide independence and mobility that reduce barriers and increase life satisfaction for people who have the use of their arms but not their legs. Handcycles are a great choice for people with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, spinal cord injury, amputation, multiple sclerosis, or who have had a stroke. These adaptive devices make wheelchair handbikes available as a competitive sport and recreational activity for people who otherwise would be sidelined. Piloting a wheelchair handbike is a great cardiovascular workout, and it builds strength and tones the shoulder, arm, and abdominal muscles. Since operating a handcycle requires simultaneous management of pedals, steering, and brakes plus speed and location, it’s a great tool to improve balance and coordination. Socially, a wheelchair handbike helps a person get out into the world and take advantage of that access to meet and connect with people.
What the disadvantage of a wheelchair handbike?
It's very difficult to assemble, and if you buy a wheelchair handbike online, it's better to have it assembled, because it's going to take you a long time to do it on your own.

2. Tires: Always pay attention to whether the tire pressure is normal. This is the most basic.
3. Chair cover and backrest: Clean the chair cover and leather backrest with warm water and diluted soapy water.
4. Lubrication and general maintenance: Always use a lubricant to maintain the electric wheelchair, but don't use too much to avoid oil stains on the floor. Maintain general maintenance from time to time, and check whether the screws and screws are secure.
5. Normally, please wipe the electric wheelchair with clean water. Avoid placing the electric wheelchair in a damp place and avoid hitting the controller, especially the rocker. When carrying the electric wheelchair, please protect the controller strictly. When the controller is exposed to food or When the beverage is contaminated, please clean it up immediately, wipe it with a cloth dampened with a diluted cleaning solution, and avoid using detergents containing powder or alcohol.
It can be divided into maintenance-free lead-acid battery power chair wheelchairs and lithium battery power chair wheelchairs.
The maintenance-free lead-acid battery power chair wheelchair superimposes the control system, power system, and driving power source on the traditional manual wheelchair; the maintenance-free lead-acid battery with mature technology with large capacity is used as the driving power source. At the same time, it also uses an aluminum alloy tube frame, a quick-release armrest height-adjustable structure, a 180°rotation of the hanging feet， and a quick-release structure, and is equipped with the latest electromagnetic brake technology. It does not slide uphill and has no inertia when downhill. The gearbox of the maintenance-free lead-acid battery electric wheelchair is a two-stage variable-speed motor, which gives the wheelchair sufficient and matched horsepower, more powerful climbing， and more durable electricity.
The power device is superimposed on the traditional manual wheelchair, and the large-capacity lithium battery is used as the power source. The lithium battery electric wheelchair adopts the aluminum alloy tube frame and ergonomic design, which realizes the electric wheelchair’s high strength, high load-bearing, lightweight, small size, and Structure that can be folded at any time.
One of the applicable scenarios: residential or commercial areas with elevators
Many elderly people live in houses with elevators or on the first floor. Due to leg inconvenience, they may not go out often. With the help of electric wheelchairs, the elderly can drive them in and out freely. Go downstairs and drive to the community, and then go where you want to go. Generally, the standard for home elevators is 1.4 meters long, and the size of commercial elevators is larger, while the length of Wisking power chair wheelchairs is generally within 1.2 meters, so you can freely enter and exit the elevator.
Applicable scenario 2: Go to the vegetable farm to buy vegetables
Nowadays in urban life, grocery shopping is a very important part of the life of the elderly. The vegetable market is generally not too far from the residential building but there is still a distance. Many elderly people can walk there, but they cannot walk after buying vegetables. When you come back (who can’t walk with the vegetables or can’t walk far), if you use a Wisking power chair wheelchair, you can drive directly from your home to the vegetable market, and you can freely shuttle in the vegetable market to buy the dishes you need, and then put them in the vegetable basket. It is very convenient to drive back without any effort.

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.
