1. Use the buttons or dial on the joystick to adjust speeds.
2. Use the programmer to reprogram the top speed- which will be about 4mph. This is a pretty typical top speed on low-end wheelchairs. Remember, speed affects performance- the faster you go, the worse the braking and turning gets, and the tippier the chair gets.Also remember that wheelchairs have very few safety features for crashes and tips.
3. Invest in a pair of high performance motors and motor controller (which probably means a new joystick, too). You'll also need better batteries since the faster speeds will put more demand on them. Your best source for this sort of information will be wheelchair user forums.
4. Buy a high performance wheelchair, like the Bounder High Performance (http://www.wheelchairs.com/fast.htm)
Most people who use chairs want more speed, but wheelchairs are TIGHTLY regulated by the government, and there are lots of restrictions on what they can and cannot do.
hi there patty ,as a Invacare tech ill try to answer your question, first rotate seat by pulling the lever up on the right side of chair rotate and lift seat up takes 2 people gen. then remove the 4 screws that hold the shroud on that allows you to get at the control box, batterys, and the gearboxes and motors better and motors better
Hi Lane. What happened to your old brushes?
Be carefull fitting different brushes to your machine. If you do, make sure that the brushes you use are also for a 24 volt DC motor. Different voltage motors have different types of material used for the brushes, they can damsge your commutator if you use the wrong ones.
If you find some that are slightly to big, it is Ok to carefully file them down to size.
Contact a local service agent, they often have used brushes that still have a bit of life in them.
I often use brushes from one brand in other brands of machine, and have used brushes as well, but we are probably too far away in New Zealand.
Good luck. Neil.
hi ,I don't have access to the wiring diagram however I worked on most scooters so can I ask what the problem is , has the wiring loom got damaged ? if so please tell me the name of the motor contoller under the seat a blue or black box. I have rewired over 200 scooters so it not a issue. Not one failure.
I do not believe that you can. If you use the "b" channel for the center channel, the "a" channel will not process the left and right channels simultaneously. It is either or, not both at the same time. It may be possible to run your E660's directly off the TV output adjusting the volume from the TV, while running the center channel through the Yamaha receiver and adjusting the volume for the center channel from the receiver.I hope this helps.
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.
