1. PREFACE AND INTRODUCTION
Please carefully read this owner’s handbook before
using the powerchair. Improper use of the
powerchair could result injury, damage or traffic
incidents.
This handbook includes a copy of the service record
and warranty information. Please keep it in a safe
place or with the powerchair. If someone else uses
the powerchair, provide them with this handbook
for their information.
As designs change some illustrations and pictures
herein may not correspond to the powerchair
purchased. We reserve the right to make design
modifications.
• Use extreme caution when driving your
powerchair in busy areas such as shopping malls.
• Do not drive the powerchair under the influence
drink or drugs, or when you are tired.
• Be careful when using the powerchair in low
light. It has not been designed for use at night.
• Before using the powerchair in busy or
hazardous environments, familiarise yourself
with the operation of the powerchair. Practice in
an open and safe area which is free from
hazards and other people. Use a low speed for
your initial practice.
Always remain in seat whilst using the
powerchair. Do not stand on the
footplate.
The Drive range of powered wheelchairs have been
designed and manufactured to provide a
comfortable and secure yet affordable solution for
some mobility requirements. All Drive powerchairs
have a fixed base (not folding) with a separate seat.
There a number of mid-wheel and rear-wheel drive
configurations available.
Whilst Driving
• Do not use your powerchair on surfaces that are
muddy, gravelly, bumpy, narrow, snowed over,
icy; or on towpaths near to canals which are not
guarded.
• Do not use your powerchair outside when it is
raining, snowing, misty or windy.
The models in the Drive powerchair range are:
• Sunfire General rear wheel drive powerchair
• Sunfire Plus GT RWD powerchair
• Sunfire EC RWD powerchair
• Image EC mid wheel powerchair
• Image GT mid wheel powerchair
• Geo Indoor RWD powerchair
• Do not make erratic turnings on your
powerchair.
• Bear in mind driving motions such as
accelerating, stopping, turning, reversing, and
the effect of gradients.
Your Drive powerchair is CE marked by Drive
Medical, who are an ISO 9001 and ISO 13485
certified medical device manufacturer.
• Slow down when driving on gradients. Always
lean forward when climbing a steep gradient. Do
not travel on gradients exceeding those stated
in the specification. Most access ramps are 5º
which is a suitable incline for all Drive
powerchairs.
2. SAFETY
Before Driving
• The user needs to be familiar with the use and
operation of this powerchair before driving.
• Ride on the pavement and pedestrian areas
only. Never ride on motorways or dual
carriageways. Only use roads to cross to other
side of the pavement.
• Be aware of traffic when crossing or using roads.
Drive Powerchair Range
Page 2
Z20945 (Rev C)
When climbing an incline, try to keep your
powerchair moving. If you must stop, start
up again slowly, and then accelerate
cautiously. When driving down an incline,
do so slowly and in the forward direction
only. If your powerchair starts to move
faster than you anticipated or desired,
allow the chair to come to a complete
stop by releasing the joystick. Push the
joystick slightly forward and continue
travelling slowly down the incline. When
climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive
at an angle up the face of the incline.
Always drive your Drive straight up the
incline. This greatly reduces the possibility
of a tip or a fall.

• Do not use the powerchair to carry heavy goods.
• Do not use a mobile phone or other wireless
communication devices whilst driving. Always
stop somewhere suitable and switch off the
powerchair before using the phone.
Electromagnetic Interference
• Powerchairs may be susceptible to
electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources
such as mobile phones, walkie-talkies, TV and
radio broadcast stations and amateur radio sets.
In some cases, there is a risk this interference
may cause involuntary movement of the
powerchair. The powerchair has been tested and
passed to withstand interference to a level of
20V per metre.
• Do not set in freewheel mode when driving,
especially on a gradient. Ensure that the
powerchair’s automatic brakes are applied
before use.
• Do not exceed the weight limit of the
powerchair.
• Be aware that the above sources may cause
involuntary movement due to EMI. Exercise
caution whilst using the aforementioned devices
and avoid close proximity to TV and Radio
broadcast stations.
Labelling
• Please carefully read all labels applied to the
powerchair before driving. For future reference,
do not remove them from the powerchair. The
labels are also shown here:

connector on the charger in to the socket on
the front of the joystick controller
For On-board chargers (USA). Plug the mains
lead in to the socket on the scooter body.
Switch on the plug socket at the mains.
Charger Light
• The charger light will illuminate orange to
indicate the batteries are charging. The
charging duration is about 8 hours, however a 12
hour charge is recommended for optimum
performance. The orange light will turn green
when charging is 95% complete.
Ensure that the charger is removed from
the mains and the powerchair after
charging. Failure to do this may flatten the
battery.
Suggestions
1. Do not disconnect the charger cord
until charging is completed and the light
is lit Green.
2. When fully charged the battery charger
will still trickle charge the battery for
optimum range.
3. Even when not in use, the powerchair
should be charged at least every week
to ensure battery longevity.
4. Ambient temperature will effect
charging time. Charging time will be
longer in cold environments.
5. The batteries carry a 1 year warranty
which covers manufacturing defects
only. It does not cover battery faults as
result of not following the guidelines
herein.
Drive Powerchair Range
Page 9
Warning
1. Only use the charger supplied with the
powerchair. Using the wrong type of
charger may cause damage. Never
disassemble or modify the powerchair.
2. Always charge the powerchair in a well
ventilated space. Avoid direct sunlight
or contact with water and moisture.
3. Do Not charge or operate the
powerchair in temperatures below 10ºC or above 50ºC. Do not expose the
battery pack to these temperatures.
About the Batteries
• The batteries require charging every week to
ensure battery longevity.
• The batteries supplied by Drive Medical are
classified as safe for air transport under IATA
special provision A67.
Battery Care
1. You should recharge the batteries after
each time the powerchair is used to ensure
maximum battery range. The batteries
should be charged at least once a week
even if the powerchair is not used.
2. After charging or replacing a new battery,
drive the powerchair for a short period to
ensure battery capacity is sufficient.
3. In cold environments, the battery may
respond more slowly and range will be
reduced.
4. When driving on a gradient, the battery
gauge will fluctuate. This is a normal
occurrence.
5. Battery range is reduced when driving up
gradients or on rough terrain, as the
powerchair uses more power.
6. The batteries should not be charged for
more than 24 hours.
Battery Replacement
It is natural for the battery capacity to reduce with
time, even if the battery is charged as directed
above. When the battery range is about half of its
peak performance we recommend that the
batteries are changed. Continuing to use an old
battery will result in a rapid reduction in the range
of the powerchair and can cause excessive wear
and tear on other parts of the powerchair.
Z20945 (Rev C)
6. INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
a. Weekly Checking
Check the following items weekly or before driving.
If you find anything abnormal contact your Drive
Medical Dealer for further inspection or advice.
• Arms. Check they are secure and flip up easily
d.
Cleaning
•
The powerchair should be cleaned periodically,
especially if you tend to drive on sand, gravel
or other adverse environments.
•
Use a soft, wrung dry cloth to keep your
powerchair clean and dust free. Use a damp
cloth and mild detergent to clean the
powerchair.
• Seat and Back. Check for rips or sagging. Ensure
seat positively locks in position and swivels
freely.
• Motor. Check for any abnormal noise and
electromagnetic brakes work correctly.
Warning
• Do not use a hose pipe or splash water
directly on to the powerchair.
• Do not use petrol, solvents or vaporising
solutions as these many damage body
panels. Do not use wax
• Ensure the charger is unplugged and the
powerchair switched off before cleaning
the powerchair.
• Freewheel Lever. Ensure they works correctly.
• Horn. Check the horn sounds when button
pressed.
• Tyres. Check tyre tread depth and for any signs
of damage such as cracking.
• Front (Castor) Wheels. Check they swivel easily,
and there is no vibration when going forward.
b. Service Record
To ensure your powerchair is correctly serviced take
it to your Drive Medical dealer for regular service.
We recommend that powerchairs are serviced at
least annually, and your dealer may charge a fee
for this.
A copy of the service record is at the back of this
handbook.
Even if the powerchair has not been used,
it should still be serviced annually.
c.
•
Batteries and Tyres
For information on the batteries, please read
section 5 on Battery Charging and Care.
•
Tyre condition will be affected by how you
drive the powerchair and what terrain it is
driven on.
•
Some models come with solid tyres which are
puncture free, so there is no need to check tyre
pressure.
•
On models with pneumatic tyres, check tyre
pressure regularly. The maximum tyre pressure
is stated on the side wall of the tyre.
Drive Powerchair Range
Page 10
e.
Storage
•
Ensure the powerchair is stored with the seat
set in the forward position, the powerchair
switched off and charger disconnected. Ideally
the joystick controller should also be
unplugged to prevent battery drain.
Store the powerchair in environments which
are free from direct sunlight and water or
moisture.
f.
Moving About
1.
Switch off the powerchair and dismount from
the powerchair.
2.
Lift the powerchair by the chassis only.
3.
For your safety ask for help if required. You will
need two or more people when moving or
lifting the powerchair as a whole.
Never lift the powerchair by the bumpers or
body panels, as this can cause injury or
damage.
