Exploring the world around you and having the freedom to go wherever you want is a valuable experience, especially with a new electric wheelchair. For even the experienced wheelchair user, a new electric wheelchair can add a unique set of features not available before. As New World Mobility, we offer you different types of electric wheelchairs. Just like with any new mode of transportation, there are some key tips for a comfortable and enjoyable ride. In this article, we will have a brief look at the tips on using your electric wheelchair in an ideal way.
Learning the Basics
Learning how to operate your electric wheelchair is of the utmost importance in having a comfortable riding experience. The basics are necessary for controlling the speed and direction of your wheelchair and for understanding the various touch screen layouts and safety features. Although the basics are all the same, depending on the type of electric wheelchair you have purchased, the features may vary. However, there is usually a tutorial provided in the manufacturer’s instruction manual. Additionally, our electric wheelchairs come with customer support; if you ever have questions, you can ask questions and get more information on your chair.
Start Slow and Practice
Once you understand the basics of electric wheelchairs, it’s time to take it for a spin. Start slowly and pay close attention to your speed and direction. This will help you gain familiarity with your electric wheelchair and prepare you for more difficult terrain. With practice, you’ll build your confidence and become more comfortable controlling your electric wheelchair. Remember to take your time and focus on the basics before tackling more difficult terrain.
Charge the Electric Wheelchair’s Battery
As you’re out exploring, make sure to keep an eye on the battery power of your electric wheelchair. The battery level can vary depending on use and terrain, so keep in mind that you may need to recharge more frequently if you’re using your electric wheelchair often. It is recommended to keep the battery of your electric wheelchair at least half full before you set out in order to avoid low battery power halfway through your ride.
