CHAPTER 2 – SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS for Breeze C
GENERAL
MANDATORY! Do not operate your new Breeze C scooter for the first time
without completely reading and understanding this owner’s manual.
Your Breeze C is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to
increase mobility. We provide you an extensive variety of products to best fit
the individual needs of the user. Please be aware that the final selection and
purchasing decision regarding the type of Breeze C scooter to be used is the responsibility
of the user who is capable of making such a decision and his/her healthcare professional
(i.e., medical doctor, physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has
properly fitted the Breeze C scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing
healthcare professional and/or the authorized Provider in the instruction process for the
use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the user will need
to practice operating the Breeze C scooter in the presence of a trained attendant. A
trained attendant can be defined as a family member or care professional specially trained
in assisting a user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your Breeze C scooter during daily activities, you will probably
encounter situations in which you will need some practice. Simply take your time and you
will soon be in full and confident control as you maneuver through doorways, on and off
elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the you
become accustomed to operating the Breeze C scooter safely.
MODIFICATIONS
We have designed and engineered your Breeze C Scooter to provide
maximum mobility and utility. However, under no circumstances should you
modify, add, remove, or disable any feature, part, or function of your Breeze
C Scooter.
WARNING! Do not modify your Breeze C Scooter in any way not authorized
by the manufacturer. Do not use accessories if they have not been tested or approved by
the manufacturer.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your Breeze C Scooter by any of
its removable parts , including the armrests, seat, or shroud.
PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your Breeze C Scooter and its capabilities. We
recommends that you perform a safety check before each use to make sure
your Breeze C Scooter operates smoothly and safely.

TIRE INFLATION
Your Breeze C scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or
have the air pressure checked at least once a week. Proper inflation
pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth
operation of your Breeze C scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that the psi/bar/kPa air pressure indicated
on each tire be maintained in pneumatic tires at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate
your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst.
Failure to maintain the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on pneumatic tires at all
times may result in tire and/or wheel failure.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter tires from a regulated air source with an available
pressure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate
them, resulting in a burst tire.
NOTE: If the tires on your Breeze C scooter marked with psi rating only, use the
following conversion formulas to find the bar or kPa rating:
bar = psi x 0.06895 , kPa = psi x 6.89476.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Refer to the
specifications table for information. See appendix A.
MANDATORY! Stay within the specified weight capacity for your Breeze C
scooter. Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty. We will not be
held responsible for injuries and / or property damage resulting from failure to
observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers on your
Breeze C scooter may affect instable conditions.
INCLINE INFORMATION
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination,
designed for easy and safe access. Some ramps may have turning
switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills
on your Breeze C scooter.

Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or incline.

Take wide swings with your Breeze C scooter around any tight corners. If you do
that, the scooter’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, do not cut the corner short, and do
not bump into or get hung up on any railing corners.

When driving down a ramp, keep the Breeze C scooter’s speed adjustment set to
the slowest speed setting to ensure a safely controlled descent.

Avoid sudden stops and starts.

Follow the next figure A according your scooter speed.

IFigure A. Maximum Recommended Incline Angle
When climbing an incline, try to keep your Breeze C scooter moving. If you must stop,
start up again slowly, and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so
by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest setting and driving in the forward
direction only. If your Breeze C scooter starts to move down the incline faster than you
anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control
lever. Then push the throttle control lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled
descent.
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the Breeze C
Scooter in freewheel mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face
of the incline. Drive your Breeze C Scooter straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the
possibility of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! Do not drive your Breeze C Scooter across the side of an incline or diagonally
up or down an incline; do not stop, if possible, while driving up or down an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous
incline (i.e., areas covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING!
Even though your Breeze C Scooter is capable of climbing slopes
greater than those illustrated in figure A , do not, under any
circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or any other specifications
presented in this manual. Doing so could cause instability in your Breeze
C scooter.
Handicap public accesses ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries,
and therefore do not necessarily share the same standard percent of slope. Other inclines
may be natural or, if man-made, are not designed specifically for Breeze C Scooters.
11
Figure A illustrates your Breeze C Scooter’s stability and its ability to climb grades under
various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the Breeze C Scooter’s seat in the highest position and
adjusted rearward on the seat base to its farthest rearward position. Use this information
as a guideline. Your Breeze C Scooter’s ability to travel up inclines is affected by your
weight, your Breeze C Scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your
Breeze C scooter setup.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than what is shown in figureA may put your Breeze C scooter in an unstable position and cause it to tip.
WARNING! Never carry an oxygen tank weighing more than 15 lbs (6.8 kg). Never fill the
front or rear basket with contents exceeding 5 Kg (11 lbs) in the front and
8 Kg
(17.6lbs) in the rear basket.
Figure B. Normal Driving Position
Figure C. Increased Stability Drive Position
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See Figures B and C. This shifts
the center of gravity of you and your Breeze C Scooter toward the front of the Breeze C
scooter for improved stability.
NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while moving
forward, the powered Breeze C Scooter may "rollback" approximately 1 foot (30.5
cm) before the brake engages. If the throttle control lever is released while moving
in reverse, the powered Breeze C scooter may "rollback" approximately 3 feet (one
meter) before the brake engages.
CORNERING INFORMATION
Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which
affect the possibility of tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering
angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding
from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from a grassy area
to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes.
High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner,
reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent
your Breeze C scooter from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable center of
gravity. When using your Breeze C scooter at higher speeds, do not corner sharply. This
greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. Always exercise your senses when cornering.
BRAKING INFORMATION
Your Breeze C scooter is equipped with these powerful brake systems:

Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control
lever returns to the centre/stop position.

Park Brake: Activates automatically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to
near stop, or when power is removed from the system for any reason.
12
OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES

Your Breeze C scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal
driving conditions- dry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt.
However, We recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other surface
types. For this reason, your Breeze C Scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed
soil, grass, and gravel. Feel free to use your Breeze C Scooter safely on lawns and in
park areas.

Reduce your Breeze C Scooter’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft
surfaces.

Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.

Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.

If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
PUBLIC STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your Breeze C scooter on public streets and
roadways.
Be aware that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your
Breeze C Scooter. Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of
traffic, and then proceed with extreme caution.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, CURBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges, and/or
drop-offs (curbs, porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your Breeze C Scooter climb or descend
an obstacle that is inordinately high.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your Breeze C Scooter proceed
backward down any step, curb, or other obstacle. This may cause the
Breeze C Scooter to tip.
WARNING! Be sure your Breeze C Scooter is traveling perpendicular to any curb you may
be required to ascend or descend.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a curb that has a height greater than 10 cm (4").
INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
Exposure of your Breeze C Scooter to inclement weather conditions should be avoided
whenever possible.
If suddenly caught up in rain, snow, severe cold or heat while operating your Breeze C
Scooter, proceed to shelter at the earliest opportunity. Thoroughly dry your Breeze C
Scooter before storing, charging, or operating your Breeze C Scooter.
PROHIBITED! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions, and on icy slippery
surfaces can have an adverse affect on the electrical system. Maintain and store your
Breeze C Scooter in a dry and clean condition.
WARNING! Prolonged exposure to hot or cold conditions may affect the temperature of
upholstered and non-upholstered items on the Breeze C Scooter, possibly resulting in skin
irritation. Exercise caution when using your Breeze C Scooter in extremely hot or cold
conditions or when exposing your Breeze C Scooter to direct sunlight for prolonged
periods of time.

FREEWHEEL MODE
Your Breeze C Scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel
lever that, when pushed Upward, allows the Breeze C scooter
to be pushed. For more information about how to place your
Breeze C scooter into and out of freewheel mode, see 3.
“General description of your Breeze C scooter.”
WARNING! When your Breeze C scooter is in freewheel mode,
the braking system is disengaged.
 Disengage the drive motors only on a level surface.
 Ensure the key is removed from the key switch.
 Stand beside the Breeze C Scooter to engage or disengage freewheel mode. Never
seat on a Breeze C Scooter to do this.
 After you have finished pushing your Breeze C Scooter, always return it to the drive
mode to lock the brakes.
 An added feature built into the Breeze C Scooter is “push-too-fast” protection which
safeguards the Breeze C scooter against gaining excessive speed while in freewheel
mode.
“Push-too-fast” operates differently depending on which of two conditions exists:
 If the key is switched “off” while in freewheel mode, the Breeze C scooter’s controller
activates regenerative braking when the Breeze C scooter is pushed faster than a
maximum threshold which has been preprogrammed. In this case, the controller is
acting as a speed governor.
 If the key is switched “on” while in freewheel mode, you will encounter considerable
resistance at any speed. This prevents the Breeze C scooter from gaining unwanted
momentum should the manual freewheel lever inadvertently be released while driving
the Breeze C scooter.
 When using this lever be careful not to touch the internal surface of the motor, they
could be very hot and cause injure. See the warning label at the rear of the scooter
near the lever.
STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
Breeze C scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators.
Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Do not use your Breeze C scooter to negotiate steps or escalators.
DOORS
 Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
 Use your hand to turn the knob or push the handle or push-bar.
 Drive your Breeze C Scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or
drive your Breeze C Scooter gently and slowly rearwards to pull the door open.
SAFETY
ELEVATORS
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the
door(s).
 If you are in the doorway of an elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the
rubber door edge or allow the rubber door edge to contact the Breeze C scooter and
the door will reopen.
 Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or Breeze C Scooter accessories do not

Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from sources
such as cellular phones, mobile two-way radios (such as walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV
stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave signals,
paging transmitters and medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency vehicles.
In some cases, these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control
system. Every electrically-powered mobility vehicle has an immunity(or resistance) to EMI.
The higher the immunity level, the greater the protection against EMI. This product has
been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/M.
WARNING! Be aware that cell phones, two-way radios, laptops, and other types of radio
transmitters may cause unintended movement of your electrically-powered mobility vehicle
due to EMI. Exercise caution when using any of these items while operating your mobility
vehicle and avoid coming into close proximity of radio and TV stations.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered mobility
vehicle can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify your Breeze C
scooter in any way not authorized by the manufacturer.
WARNING! The electrically-powered mobility vehicle itself can disturb the performance of
other electrical devices located nearby, such as alarm systems.
NOTE: For further information on EMI/RFI,ask your authorized supplier.

shut off automatically to save battery energy. This is an optional
feature. In such cases, to restart control system, turn Main Key Switch
“OFF” and “ON” again.
Battery
The Battery Capacity Indicator (5.1) located on top of the Tiller Box
Status
shows you the remaining capacity of the batteries. Like in cars the
Indicator
Batteries indicator is not absolute accurate, but will help you from
running out of fuel. The best way to use the battery indicator is to learn
it's behavior to the change of the battery capacity. When the indicator
points to the yellow area, recharge batteries as soon as possible.
When the indicator points to the red area you should get to immediate
charging, it is possible to drive only a short distance (1-4 km on level
surface).The accuracy of the battery indicator reading depends also on
the type and age of the batteries.
Fault
The Breeze C ON LED indicator (5.2) is also uses as a Fault
Indicator
indication. When the LED is flashing, It blinks in a code of the fault.
(See Maintenance Manual for code definition).

CHAPTER 9 – EMI WARNING
All types of electrically powered vehicles, such as powered wheelchairs and motorized scooters (in this
text all types will be referred to as “powered vehicles”) may be susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI). This is from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters,
two-way radios and cellular phones. The interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the powered
vehicle to release its brakes, move by itself, or move in unintended direction. It can also damage the powered vehicle’s
control system. The intensity of the interfering EM energy can be measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each powered
vehicle can resist EMI interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted up to a certain intensity. This is called its
“immunity level”. The higher the immunity level, the greater the protection. At this time, current technology is capable of
achieving immunity level, which would provide useful protection from the more common sources of radiated EMI. This
vehicle as shipped, with no further modification, has an immunity level of 20 V/m.
There are a number of sources of relatively intense electromagnetic fields in everyday environment. Some of these
sources are obvious and easy to avoid. Others are not apparent and exposure is unavoidable. However, we believe that
by following the warning listed below, your risk of EMI will be minimized.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types:
1.
Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitters-receivers) with the antenna mounted directly on the transmitting unit.
Examples include: citizen band (CB) radios, “walkie talkies”, security, fire and police transceivers, cellular telephones and
other personal communication devices. ** NOTE: some cellular telephones and similar devices transmit signals while
they are ON, even when not being used.
2.
Medium-range mobile transceivers Such as those used in police cars, fire trucks, ambulances and taxis. These
usually have the antenna mounted on the outside of the vehicle .
3.
Long-range transmitters and transceivers such as commercial broadcast transmitters (Radio and TV broadcast
antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios.
NOTE: Other types of hand held devices, such as cordless phones, laptop computers, AM/FM radios, TV sets, CD
players, cassette players and small appliances such as electric shavers and hair dryers, as far as we know, are not likely
to cause EMI problems to your powered vehicle.
Powered Vehicle Electromagnetic Interference
(EMI)
Because EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one moves closer to the transmitting antenna, the
EM field from hand-held radio wave sources (transceivers) are of special concern. It is possible to
unintentionally bring high levels of EM energy close to the powered vehicle’s control system while using
these devices. This can affect powered vehicle movement and braking.
Therefore, the warnings listed below are recommended to prevent possible interference with the control system
of the powered vehicle.
WARNINGS
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, twoway radios and cellular phones can affect powered vehicles.
Following the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of unintended brake release or powered vehicle
movement which could result in serious injury:
1)
Do not operate hand-held transceivers (transmitters-receivers) such as citizen band (CB) radios, or turn ON
personal communication devices such as cellular phones, while the powered vehicle is ON;
2)
Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations and try to avoid coming close to them.
3)
On appearance of unintended movements or brake release occurrences, switch the powered vehicle OFF as soon
as it is safe.
4) Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the powered vehicle, may make it more susceptible to
EMI (Note: there is no easy way to evaluate their effect on the overall immunity level of the powered vehicle).
5) Please report to us all incidents of unintended movement or brake release and note whether there is a source of EMI
nearby.
Important information
1) 20 volts per meter (V/m) is a generally achievable and useful immunity level against EMI (as of May 1994). The
higher the level the greater the protection;
2) This product delivered to you, has an immunity level of 20 V/m.
