Introduktion
Congratulations on your new MC Concept 1170 II electric
mobility scooter.
You are now the owner of an electric mobility scooter developed
for use indoors as well as outdoors. It is what is called a Class B
vehicle according to the European classification of electric scooters.
To get the best out of this vehicle - and to avoid breakdowns
and accidents - we recommend that you read this User Manual
carefully. If you are a new user, you should pay particular
attention to the section “Driving the MC Concept”.
The MC Concept 1170 II is designed to stay safe to use for at
least 10 years, up to a maximum of 5,000 hours, providing it has
service and safety inspections every year, which is equivalent
to around 500 operating hours. The service must be carried out
either by Medema Danmark A/S or an authorised workshop.
IMPORTANT! For safety reasons it is of the utmost importance
that service and safety check intervals are complied with, as this
minimises the risk of brake failure and short-circuits in the wiring,
which could generate heat and cause a fire.
We offer a wide range of accessories for the MC Concept that
can make everyday life easier for you. You are always welcome
to contact us for further information on special accessories and
adaptations.
Medema Production A/S is not responsible for any damage
or injuries caused by inappropriate or unsafe use of the MC
Concept.

runs up to 100 times per minute. To supplement this check, you
should carry out the following regular checks.




Switch off the electronic system (no lights in the display)
Check if the joystick is bent
Check if the joystick is damaged in any other way
Check that it returns to the central position when you release it
If the check reveals any problems, contact a competent service
engineer before using the scooter again.

with at least one metre of free space around the scooter.


Start the scooter and slowly move the joystick forward. There is a
clicking sound. (The scooter may start to move in this setting).
Immediately release the joystick and listen for the clicking sound,
which should occur within one second.
Repeat in all directions.



Driving the MC Concept 1170 II
MC Concept is a modern device, specially developed to help
you achieve maximum mobility.
Before getting on or off the vehicle, you must check the
following:




That the wheelchair is switched off.
That the wheelchair is not disengaged.
That the wheelchair and the seat you are moving to are both
stable.
Avoid placing your full body weight on the footrests.
This may tip the wheelchair forwards.
If you are using the MC Concept for the first time, you should try
out all the day-to-day situations you are likely to encounter:



inclines/declines,
driving on rough terrain
driving on sloping terrain.
You should practice these manoeuvres with your therapist or
other carer.
Warning!
The seat should NEVER be hoisted while driving on uneven
surfaces, slopes or up and down kerbs. The higher the seat is
raised, the more unstable the chair becomes.
Arms and legs
While driving, you must place your arms on the armrests and
your feet on the footrests.
Cables and leads
Always make sure that cables and leads from components like
the joystick are fixed using ties.

Changes of level
Never attempt to climb onto raised objects or kerbs higher than
10 cm. Always approach changes of level head on, with the
front and back wheels moving in a straight line. (See below.)
This reduces the possibility of tipping.
Fig 1
Fig 2
Fig 3
Fig 4
Driving on hills
When driving on hills, you should try to keep the scooter moving
all the time. If you have to stop, start up again slowly.
When driving downhill, you must drive at the slowest speed.
If the MC Concept starts moving faster than you want, stop it
by completely releasing the joystick. Carefully push the joystick
forwards again and carry on with care until you reach the
bottom of the hill.

sideways incline: 10°

Avoid driving and parking in the rain

Avoid parking on snow and ice.

Always park on a level (flat) surface.

Avoid driving on rough ground.

Avoid driving on icy surfaces, or smooth surfaces (for example
snow or freshly mown grass)

Never attempt to climb kerbs higher than 10 cm.

Avoiding driving over kerbs diagonally. There is a risk of tipping
over.

Not to be used for towing other vehicles, etc.

Driving on public roads:
When driving on public roads, footpaths, pedestrian streets, car
parks, shopping centres, etc. you must make sure you adjust
your speed and distance for other users. At 7 km/h you must
follow the traffic rules applicable to cyclists. This also means
that your lights must be switched on during lighting-up time.
(Optional extra)
On footpaths, the maximum speed is 6 km/h. In this situation
you are regarded as a pedestrian.
Note!
You should assume that other road users cannot see you while
you are sitting in the MC Concept. So take great care and wait
for the road to clear before crossing.
Driving on stairs/escalators:
The scooter is not designed for use on stairs or escalators and
any attempt to do so may cause serious injury to yourself and
others.
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
The MC Concept 1170 II satisfies the requirements for the use
of scooters in an environment with electromagnetic noise. There
may, however, be rare situations in which electromagnetic
noise can affect the MC Concept 1170 II. Sources of such noise
include radio and television stations, amateur radio transmitters
and mobile phones.
If such equipment is being used close by, you are
recommended to switch off the MC Concept.
Avoid using a mobile phone while driving.
If the MC Concept starts making unintended movements or if
the brakes are released, turn the MC Concept off as soon as it
is safe to do so.
In rare cases a MC Concept can set off shop alarms.
Dynamic’s control systems have been tested and meet the
requirements of ISO7176/14 and EN12184.

Brakes
The MC Concept is equipped with two sets of brakes: The
motor brake and the parking brake.
Motor braking:
When you drive downhill, the control unit of the MC Concept
applies the motor brake.
Parking brake:
When the vehicle is stationary and the joystick is not moved, a
magnetic brake is automatically applied to each drive unit. For
driving, the magnetic brake is released first, after which the MC
Concept can be driven as described above.
Note!
You must NEVER brake the MC Concept by switching off with
the I/O button while moving, as this applies the magnetic brake
with considerable force, with a resulting risk of tipping.
Disengagement:
The MC Concept is equipped with one disengagement lever on
the back of the vehicle.
Warning!
When the scooter is disengaged, the braking system is deactivated.
You must NEVER disengage on sloping terrain. This can lead to
serious damage or personal injury.

lever out a little and turn up).

Batteries
The battery indicator shows how much power is available to the
scooter.



Red, amber and green indicate that the batteries are fully charged.
Red and amber indicate that the batteries will soon need recharging.
Red indicates that the batteries need to be recharged as soon as
possible, otherwise the scooter will cut out.
The MC Concept’s batteries should be charged while not in use.
This extends the service life of the batteries.
The MC Concept is supplied with sealed, maintenance-free
batteries that do not normally generate gas and do not need to
be topped up with water.
Note!
Unsealed batteries must NEVER be installed in the MC Concept.
If charging is to take place outdoors, an enclosed charger
without a fan should be chosen.
Only use chargers designed for charging dry maintenance-free
GEL batteries.
Max. charging current 12 A.
The charging cable must NOT be extended.
New batteries can be purchased from Medema Danmark A/S.
Battery disposal
Used batteries must be disposed of through your supplier or at
a recycling centre.
Take care in handling any leaky batteries, as they contain
corrosive acid bound into the gel mass.
INFO: New batteries can be purchased from Medema Danmark
A/S.

Charging
Charging
1
Plug the cable into the control box on the scooter.
2
Plug the charger into the outlet or switch it on.
3
Use the indicator lights on the charger to check that charging has started.
4
When charging has finished, switch off or unplug the charger, and then
remove the charger cable from the control box.
The actual battery indicator on the vehicle will show “full” after
charging for a short time. However, the batteries are not fully
charged until the indicator on the CHARGER turns green.
Note!
New batteries reach full capacity after approx. 20 discharge/
charge cycles.
Please note that the capacity of the batteries will reduce over
time and at low temperatures. Battery capacity at -10°C is half
that at +20°C.
If the MC Concept is not going to be used for an extended
period, charging once a month will suffice.
Note!
The charger must NOT be placed on the seat during charging.

General care
If you get food or drink, etc. on the control unit, you should wipe
it with a damp cloth.
You must only use a damp cloth to clean the MC Concept.
Note!
Using a high-pressure cleaner or hose may damage the
scooter’s electronic system.
Service intervals
The MC Concept is designed to require a minimum of maintenance.
However, you are recommended to take it to your dealer for an
annual inspection.
IMPORTANT! For safety reasons it is of the utmost importance
that the servicing and safety check intervals are complied with,
as this minimises the risk of brake failure and short-circuits in
the wiring, which could generate heat and cause a fire.
(For further information see the Service Manual.)
Insurance
A MC Concept with a maximum speed of 10 km/h is in the eyes
of the law a bicycle, and no separate insurance is required.
Most contents/home insurance policies include third-party
liability insurance for cyclists and so also cover MC Concept
users.
We recommend that you talk to your insurance company about
this when the vehicle is delivered.
If necessary, comprehensive insurance will have to be taken
out separately.

Storage
The scooter should be stored and charged under cover,
preferably at temperatures above 10° C.
Note!
The charger must be kept dry, but should not be covered when
in use.
For long-term storage we recommend covering the MC Concept
1170 II to protect it from dust, rain and sunlight.
Transporting by motor vehicle
The MC Concept 1170 II must ALWAYS be secured while being
transported.
To lift the scooter, use the pivot wheels at the front and back.

Towing
If you should be unfortunate enough to break down, the MC
Concept can be towed or pushed. The MC Concept must
always be turned off and disengaged for towing. See the
section on Brakes.
To tow the MC Concept, secure a rope to the tow fitting on the
front - marked in yellow. Do not tow faster than 5 km/h. The
scooter will generate electricity when it is towed, with the motors
acting as dynamos. If it is towed at more than 5 km/h, there is a
risk of the motors generating enough electricity to damage the
scooter and, in the worst case, cause a fire.
