Ann You will have to contact the provider of Gramp's chair to ask if they have a programmer for Invacare chairs. Then they will have to program the chair for a lower speed. Of course you can turn the speed down on the joystick but Grandpa is probably the one that will put it back to fast cause its going too slow. try also contacting Roadrunner Mobility@ 1-800-467-2668 and ask if they have a tech in your area that has a progeammer to slow his chair down. Hope this helps

How do I slow down my power chair

You may have a faulty speed control depending on the model. There are hand held programmers that are used to adjust the speed and other parameters. Your local dealer or mobile technician should be able to make that adjustment for you.

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.

Pride Motor Chair 2008 Vr2 Controller Speed adjustment lights go to fast setting but chair barely crawls along!

Great question! The slow flash is indicative of a speed reduced mode on models designed for a seat lift option. If the controller detects that the seat is elevated then the speed is reduced - regardless of what you try to do at the joystick.
First - try lowering the seat to its lowest position.
If this doesnt work then look for a bad or disconnected sensor switch on the seat post. There are two leads at a 2-pin plug that are not making a connection when the seat is lowered - causing the controller to sense the chair is not safe to drive fast.

Why should I get an electric massage chair?

Massage chairs are great because they can help receive a lot ofstress and tension. You can program themto target specific problems areas to work out all your kinks. The best part about a massage chair is thatit doesn't have to end after an hour and you don't have to tip anyone!

Have just purchased a Jet 2 power chair. The top speed is less than walking speed. Is this normal or is there some thing wrong?

Sandy Well could be. Hows that for an answer? It depends on the batteries and the speed setting. If the batteries are getting weak then they won't drive the chair as fast as new or good batteries. If the speed is not set to max then it won't go as fast as you like You can set the speed on the joystick. Now if the speed is set to max and you are still going slow and the batteries are new or good then it could be the program. Check with a provider(Person or Company that sells chairs) in your area and ask if they can check the programmed settings for you. If they have a PP1 programmer they should be able to easily check the settings and adjust them higher if they aren't already set there. Good Luck Hope this helps you
