Electric wheelchairs are a special means of transportation for the elderly and handicapped. For this group of people, transportation is the actual need, and safety is the first element.

For the elderly, what are the advantages of electric wheelchairs compared to other means of transportation?

1. Automatic brake or electromagnetic brake

A qualified electric wheelchair is firstly equipped with an electromagnetic brake, which automatically brakes when you let go, and will not slide uphill or downhill. Eliminates the hurried hands and feet of traditional electric wheelchairs and electric tricycles when braking, and the safety factor is higher; but keep your eyes on when buying, many electric wheelchairs on the market currently do not have electromagnetic brakes, and their braking effect and driving experience are relatively bad.


2. Anti-dumping small wheel

Driving on a flat and smooth road, any wheelchair can walk very smoothly, but for any wheelchair user, as long as he goes out to drive, he will inevitably encounter road scenes such as slopes and potholes. In order to cope with this circumstances, there should be anti-dumping small wheels to ensure safety.

Generally, the anti-tip wheels of electric wheelchairs are installed on the rear wheels. This design can effectively avoid the danger of falling backward due to the unstable center of gravity when going uphill.

3. Anti-skid tires

When encountering slippery roads such as rain, or when going up and down steep slopes, a safe wheelchair can easily stop, which is related to the anti-skid performance of tires.

The stronger the tire grip performance, the more stable the brakes, and it is not easy to stop the car and slip on the ground. The rear wheels of general outdoor wheelchairs are designed to be wider and have more tread patterns.


4. The speed does not exceed 6 kilometers per hour

The national standard stipulates that the speed of electric wheelchairs shall not exceed 6 kilometers per hour. The reason why the speed is set to 6 is that the road conditions are different in different places and the use groups vary greatly, so that every elderly disabled person with mobility impairments can travel safely.

5. Differential design when turning

Electric wheelchairs are generally rear-wheel drive. Electric wheelchairs usually use dual motors. Both dual motors and single motors are controlled by the controller to control forward and backward, and turn to all operations. It can be realized by gently moving the controller to dry, effortless, and easy to learn.

When turning, the rotation speed of the two motors on the left and right are different, and the speed is adjusted according to the turning direction, which prevents the wheelchair from turning over. Therefore, in theory, the electric wheelchair will never turn over when turning.
