Maximum Speed in Drive Mode

Country-specific maximum speed

The maximum permissible speed is programmed prior to delivery to 6 km/h or 10 km/h depending on the country. The maximum permissible speed is 6 km/h in most EU countries. Be sure to comply with your local rules and regulations.

The user can reduce the wheelchair’s maximum speed (to below the legal speed limit). This is particularly helpful for new users to become familiar with the wheelchair or in confined spaces, i.e. indoor areas.

Two predefined levels are available to switch quickly:

  • Fast (speed icon lights up orange)

  • Slow (speed icon lights up green)

Changing the speed using the joystick:

  1. Make sure you are in drive mode.

  2. Open the menu.

  3. Select the speed icon using the joystick.

  4. The maximum speed alternates between fast (orange) and slow (green).

Changing the speed using the touchpad:

  1. Make sure you are in drive mode.

  2. Open the menu.

  3. Swipe your finger on the center of the touchpad upwards from the bottom (increase speed) or downwards from the top (decrease speed). The current level is shown in a segment at the top right of the LED ring: green means slow, yellow means fast.

'Private Ground' function (country-specific)

The “Private Ground” function can be activated in the app. This temporarily increases the maximum possible speed to 10 km/h to get around faster on larger private properties. Activating this function is your own responsibility. By activating the function, you automatically confirm that you are on private property where travelling at 10 km/h is permitted.

The “Private Ground” setting is automatically deactivated again once the wheelchair is restarted.

The “Private Ground” function is not permitted in public areas.

Always comply with country-specific road traffic laws when increasing the speed from 6 km/h to 10 km/h via the “Private Ground” function. In many countries, the “Private Ground” function may not be activated on public roads, within the area of the German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO) or similar properties. No liability is accepted for using this function on public property.
