Adapting the Wheelchair to the User

A specialist must adjust the wheelchair for you before you use it for the first time. This is carried out either at the reseller where you purchased your wheelchair or at Scewo’s headquarters. This section contains further information on the various settings.

Calibrate the device before using it for the first time and when changing users

Changes to the seat settings alter the center of gravity. The user’s weight including additional load may change when the user changes or as a result of external factors. Before using the wheelchair for the first time, it is essential to recalibrate the center of gravity (see Section Calibrating the Center of Gravity). Failure to comply with this requirement may for example result in accidents caused by an increased braking distance.
