Many power wheelchair controllers are able to be programmed for speed, acceleration etc. There is normally a separate programmer that you need to plug ino the the power wheelchair. Your supplier should have one of these.

If you do not know your local supplier, have a look on the manufacturers website. If it is pride mobility, then try

Is there a way to set the speed to slow where it can't be changed?

Yes a technician with a programmer can set the control very slow so it is limited on how fast it can go. Otherwise the joystick is meant to be adjustable, so setting it to one speed only not possible.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Jazzy 1143 has new batteries all lights are good still is very slow

it may be that the joystick has been programmed for indoor or slow reaction user, you will need it to be reprogrammed (this is normally a very cheap and easy thing to do, but you need a programmer or to get a mobility shop to re program it) with most joysticks it just plugs in to the charge / data 3 pin socket on the joystick and takes less than 5 mins. a lot of mobility shops will reprogram free in the hope you will use them for further work if needed. phone a few and see how you get on, you will need to be able to tell them the type of controller (joystick) your chair has, if you are unsure do a google "image search for "wheelchair controller types" look at the images to identify the type you have fitted.

My son has a invacare chair should go 6 mph but has slowed to a snails crawl. How Can I speed it back up?

The chair may be in what they call SLOW MODE or the batteries are weak. If you have powered seating on the chair the seat has sensors that make the chair drive slow or not drive at all when the seat is tilted or reclined or raised. A sensor can go bad or get out of position. The joystick could have different programming for different drive modes. Try changing drive modes.

What can i do to speed upp chair?

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 (

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.

Why is my merits DL 5.2i stuck in low speed ?

You may have a thermal rollback issue. Try charging the chair overnight and leave the controller on while charging. This will give the control module/joystick time to reset themselves. Thermal rollback happens when a certain temperature in the motors is reached. The system shuts itself down to protect from damage.

We have a hoverround that is not being used. We charge it frequently. But today we tried to move it and it is moving very slow. I know it was originally set to a slower setting. How can we speed it up?

Rev you would have to locate the provider that delivered the chair and ask if they can reprogram the chair for you. I don't remember the type of joystick the MPV 5 uses so I don't know what type of programmer would be needed to fix the upper speed setting. They could also check the batteries cause if they are 2-3 years old they could be a cause of the slower speed Hope this helps

Invacare pronto m51 moving very slow. moves free and easy when in neutral

Check that the speed control on your joystick is set to high. If it is then you probably have a battery problem. Even with all the lights lit on the joystick you can have one battery of the two on the chair that is not charging fully. This will cause the M51 to creep and not work correctly
