If a building is "wheelchair accessible," it means that it is constructed to allow a person using a wheelchair to move around without being obstructed, and with access to all the features of that building including its bathrooms and multiple levels.

I'd like to add that you need to careful when inquiring if a place is wheelchair accessible.  I'll use hotels as an example because I've traveled a lot and have learned about accessibility the hard way sometimes.  
Some hotels say a room is wheelchair accessible because, there are bars next to the toilet, but, come to find out you can't fit a wheelchair into the bathroom.  Other hotels have a huge bathroom including a roll-in shower and provide some type of shower bench.  
So, know what your needs are and be specific about how wheelchair accessible a place is when asking.

I have learned that wheelchair accessible often does NOT mean that. It means that there is a sign that says it's wheelchair friendly. The door may weight 50 lbs and open towards you so you have to try and pull it open while wheeling yourself - which takes two hands. I could go on.. but I won't. ;)

It really doesn't mean much at all.

It means the charger does not see any voltage from the wheelchair. If the batteries are very low or completely dead the charger cannot start charging. Each battery needs to have approximately 9 volts left in it.

The red light on the transformer/Charger means the charger is bad. Sometimes it can also be battery harness wiring. Most often it is the charger that needs replaced.

Merits dl5.2i dynamic has all the lights blinking and wont move what does that mean


It depends on the number of blinks that it's giving you.
For example if it blinks 4 times and there is a longer pause and then it blinks 4 times again, it's a 4 blink code and that means a right motor fault.
every number of blinks will mean something different

How do you access the battery of hoveround mpv4 for replacement?


Under the seat on both sides there are two grey battery covers. Squeeze the pinch clip buckle to remove the black webbing strap and lift the cover off carefully. You may have to turn the seat to the side to get better access.

Wheelchair Question


Nowadays, wheelchairs can be cheap to purchase and are widely available, so choosing a wheelchair can be confusing. Somebody using the wheelchair independently will require a self propelling (large wheels) model they push themselves.

A self propelled, or transit wheelchair (smaller wheels) will be appropriate if the wheelchair will be pushed by an attendant. A folding wheelchair is a good choice for occasional use as they can easily be dismantled, folded and transported by car. It is much easier for the disabled to get around independently than it used to be, and there are two types of wheelchair on the market that come with an engine. Motorized scooters and motorized wheelchairs.

Motorized scooters can negotiate curbs and road crossings easily and does not need much physical strength making it easier for elderly people to use.

The motorized / power wheelchairs were designed for people who have very limited mobility, this is powered by a joystick in one hand for easy use. This product is can also negotiate with curbs and road crossings reasonably easily.

You should choose this type of wheelchairs if you are an independent person who would not like help with it. Realize again that these are less maneuverable than self-propelling chairs. Notice that you will not be able to fit these in most cars although you can fit them in modified vehicles.
