How to choose an electric wheelchair? The first thing we need to consider is that electric wheelchairs are for users, and each user's situation is different. From the perspective of the user, based on basic data such as height and weight, daily needs, use environment and special surrounding factors, etc., a comprehensive and detailed assessment should be carried out from the perspective of the user, so that effective selection can be carried out, gradually subtracted until a suitable electric wheelchair is selected.
How to choose an electric wheelchair? In fact, the conditions for selecting electric wheelchairs and ordinary wheelchairs are basically similar. When selecting the seat back height and seat width, the user can sit on the electric wheelchair, the knees are not curved, and the calf can be naturally lowered at a 90° right angle. The appropriate width of the seat is, at the widest position of the hips, add 1-2cm to the left and right.
If the user sits, the knees are slightly high, and the legs will be curled, and it is very uncomfortable to sit for a long time. If the seat surface is narrow, the sitting will be crowded and wide, and long-term sedentary will cause secondary injuries such as spinal deformation.
Then consider the weight of the user. If the weight is low, the use environment is flat, and the brushless motor is cost-effective; if the weight is heavy, the road condition is not very good and needs to drive long distances, it is recommended to choose a worm gear motor (brushed motor).
The easiest way to detect the power of a motor is a climbing test, whether the climbing test motor is easy or slightly strenuous. Try not to choose the motor of the horse-drawn cart. There will be many faults in the later stages. If the user has more mountain roads, it is recommended to use a worm motor.
The battery life of an electric wheelchair is also a concern for many users. To understand the properties of the battery and the AH capacity, if the product description is about 25 kilometers, it is recommended that the budget life be 20 kilometers, because the test environment and the actual use environment will differ. For example, the battery life in the north will be reduced in winter, and try not to drive an electric wheelchair out during colder times, which will cause great and irreversible damage to the battery.
6AH battery life 8-10 km
12AH battery life 15-20 km
20AH battery life 30-35 km
40AH battery life 60-70 km
Battery life is related to battery quality, weight of electric wheelchairs, passenger weight, and road conditions.
How to choose an electric wheelchair? It is also important to note the overall width of the electric wheelchair. Some families have narrow doors and need to measure the width and choose an electric wheelchair that can be freely accessed. Most electric wheelchairs have a width of 55-63cm, and some have made it more than 63cm.
When buying products, you need to carefully understand the instructions, check whether the product label brand is consistent with the manufacturer. If the product label brand is not consistent with the manufacturer, it is an OEM product.
Finally, let's talk about the warranty time. Most of them are one-year warranty for the whole vehicle, and there are also separate warranties. The controller is regular for one year, the motor is for one year, and the battery is 6-12 months.
There are also merchants who have long warranties, and ultimately follow the warranty instructions in the manual. It's worth noting that some brands have warranties based on the factory date, and some are based on the sell-by date.
When buying, try to choose a production date that is closer to the date of purchase, because most electric wheelchairs have batteries that are installed directly on the electric wheelchair and are sealed and stored and cannot be maintained separately. If left for a long time, the battery life will be affected.
Friends who have been using electric wheelchairs for a long time may find that the battery life is slowly short, and an inspection finds that the battery drum is packed. Either you run full and run out of power, or you can't charge it how you charge it. Don't be in a hurry, tell you how to properly maintain your battery today.
In the driving state of the electric wheelchair, the battery itself will heat up, plus the weather is hot, the temperature of the battery is even as high as 70 ℃. In the case of the battery not cooled to the ambient temperature, the electric wheelchair will be charged immediately as soon as it stops, which will exacerbate the battery's lack of water, reduce the service life of the battery, and increase the risk of battery charging.
It is recommended to park the electric vehicle for more than half an hour and charge it after the battery is fully cooled. If the battery or motor is abnormally heated during the driving of the electric wheelchair, please go to the professional electric wheelchair maintenance department for inspection and repair in time.
The battery also heats up during charging, and if charged under direct sunlight, it can also cause the battery to lose water and cause a drum bag to the battery. Try to charge the battery in a cool place or choose to charge an electric wheelchair in the evening.
Charging an electric wheelchair with a mismatched charger may result in damage to the charger or damage to the battery. For example, using a charger with a large output current to charge a small battery can easily cause the battery to charge the drum pack.
It is recommended to go to a professional electric wheelchair after-sales repair shop to replace the matching high-quality brand charger to ensure the charging quality and prolong the service life of the battery.
Many electric wheelchair users often charge all night for convenience. The charging time often exceeds 12 hours, and sometimes forgets to cut off the power to charge for more than 20 hours, which will inevitably cause great damage to the battery. Charging multiple times for a long time can easily cause the battery to charge the drum due to overcharging. Generally, electric wheelchairs can be charged for 8 hours with a matching charger.
Try to keep the electric wheelchair battery fully charged before traveling, and depending on the actual range of the electric wheelchair, you can choose to take public transportation for long-distance travel.
After reading this article, do you have a general understanding of how to choose an electric wheelchair?
Beds used by patients or severely disabled people during inpatient recuperation and rehabilitation, there are ordinary hospital beds and multifunctional back beds.
They are also known as hospital beds, medical beds, multi-functional nursing beds, etc. They are used by patients during recuperation and rehabilitation treatment and are mainly used in hospitals, township health centres, community health service centres and rehabilitation institutions.
The use of manual hospital beds is similar to that of other functional hospital beds, only that they are simpler in various aspects such as operation, for example, compared to electric ones, many electric hospital beds have more complicated functions and more buttons, which are not quite suitable for the convenient and quick operation requirements of ordinary patients, and this is one of the reasons why many hospitals choose hand cranked medical hospital beds.
So what problems should be noted in the use of manual hospital beds? Since it is a hand crank hospital bed, then the natural control of the bed lift is the rocker, so the role of the rocker in this is very big, whether it is the patient's family or the hospital nurses, when operating the rocker rocker must pay attention to the force evenly, in order to avoid too much force led to the rocker off the wire condition, because if the wire will let the raised bed panel suddenly fall, causing physical and mental injuries to patients. Then is the daily maintenance of the three shaking four fold hospital bed, this is more important, because some manual hospital bed manufacturers of hand shaking medical hospital beds need to be at the rocker often on the lubricant, can make the normal use of its rocker.
In addition, in the daily manual hospital bed bed cleaning, be careful not to have foreign objects present at the bed links, which can easily cause irreversible damage to the bed when the bed is lifted, thus shortening the service life of the hand-operated hospital beds.
First of all, as a multi-functional electric hospital bed manufacturers, after placing the product, will be the electric bed power line will be connected, and then there are professionals to debug, to ensure the smooth operation of the function. As a health care worker, in addition to listening to the technical staff sent by the manufacturer to explain, but also to fully understand the operating specifications of the product, especially the manual part must be read and understood clearly.
More importantly, because it is electric, and the ordinary manual hospital bed is different, so be sure to figure out the emergency disposal button of the electric hospital bed, so as to ensure that the product in the remote control operation failure can be the first time the bed operation system suspended, to avoid bringing unexpected harm to the patient.
On the use of hospital beds precautions, this and manual hospital beds precautions are actually similar, in addition to daily check the bed below the lifting system and lifting together whether there are debris and other accidents, as the most important point of the electric medical bed is to often check the situation of the wire, including whether the plug is solid, whether the appearance of the wire is broken and other situations occur.
Smart electric wheelchairs are one of the special transportation tools for the elderly with disabilities with reduced mobility. For such people, mobility is the actual need, and safety is the first factor. Many people have this concern: Is it safe for the elderly to drive electric wheelchairs? DRAGON will talk to you today about why smart electric wheelchairs are safe and reliable transportation tools for the elderly.
As a 10-year practitioner in the wheelchair industry, DRAGON is here to popularize a qualified smart electric wheelchair for everyone today. Why is it a safe and reliable transportation tool for the elderly? What are the advantages of electric wheelchairs over other mobility tools for the elderly? This article is only analyzed from the perspective of the user's own control.
A qualified smart electric wheelchair first has electromagnetic brakes, releases automatic brakes, and does not slip uphill and downhill.
Smart electric wheelchairs eliminate the hassle of traditional electric wheelchairs and electric tricycles when braking, and the safety factor is higher; however, polish your eyes when purchasing. At present, many electric wheelchairs on the market do not have electromagnetic brakes, and their braking effect and driving experience are relatively poor;
When driving on a flat and smooth road, any wheelchair can walk very smoothly, but for any wheelchair user, as long as they go out, they will inevitably encounter slopes, potholes and other road scenes. In order to cope with this situation, anti-tipping wheels should be used to ensure safety.
The anti-tipping wheels of electric wheelchairs are installed on the rear wheels. This design can effectively avoid the danger of falling back due to unstable center of gravity during uphill.
Safe wheelchairs can easily brake on slippery surfaces such as rainy days, or when going up and down steep slopes, which is related to the non-slip performance of the tire. The stronger the grip of the tire, the smoother the brake, and it is not easy to fail to brake and slide on the ground. Generally, outdoor wheelchairs have wider rear wheels and more tread patterns.
National standards stipulate that the speed of ordinary intelligent electric wheelchairs should not exceed 6 kilometers per hour. The reason why the speed is set at 6 kilometers per hour is due to the different road conditions and the number of users varies greatly, so that every elderly person with disabilities with reduced mobility can travel safely.
Smart electric wheelchairs are generally rear-wheel drive, and electric wheelchairs usually use dual motors, whether dual motors or single motors are controlled by controllers to control forward and backward, steering all operations. Just move the controller joystick gently, effortless and easy to learn to operate.
When turning, the left and right motors rotate at different speeds, and the speed is adjusted according to the turning direction, avoiding the wheelchair rollover, so in theory, the electric wheelchair will never roll over.
Many people have learned about the price of smart electric wheelchairs, especially the prices of high-end smart electric wheelchairs, and shook their heads straight after shaking their heads. Some people even said that this price could add a little money to buy a car, but don't forget, no matter how good or cheap it is for the elderly, he can't drive a car, are you right?
If you understand the above aspects, you know why smart electric wheelchairs are safe and reliable travel tools for the elderly and disabled with reduced mobility.
