Manual Emergency Operation (Push Mode)

If the wheelchair can no longer be moved (using the motors) due to a serious error or a completely discharged battery, the following options for manual pushing operation are available. 

Resolving the issue

Many errors can be solved by you on site using the correct procedures. Restarting the wheelchair often helps. See also Error Messages for further information on error messages.

Maintain walking pace

Never push faster than a walking pace. The wheelchair will stop immediately if the brake is applied again. At high speeds, the occupant could be thrown off or the wheelchair could tip over.

Increased risks during emergency operation, assistant is needed

No sensors or motors are active during the emergency operation. For this reason, only use the emergency operation if no other options are available. Ask a pedestrian or an assistant for help and instruct them so that they can help you deal with the situation safely.

Sloping terrain

If the wheelchair is on sloping terrain, releasing the brakes together with the high weight (wheelchair and user) can cause unwanted movements of the wheelchair. By releasing the button, the brakes can be applied again at any time.

Do not pull or push on the head support

The head support is not designed to be used to pull or push the wheelchair. The head support could get bent and someone could be injured by parts that are protruding or have broken off.
