1. Preliminary remark
Dear user,
By purchasing your Bischoff & Bischoff folding wheelchair
from the Pyro Light Series, you are getting a top German
product that sets new standards with its variability.
These operating instructions are to help you become more
familiar with the operation and use of the wheelchair.
Pyro Light /
Pyro Light XL
1.1 Important safety information
In order to avoid toppling and dangerous situations, you
should practice safe handling of your new wheelchair on a
flat and familiar surface. In such a case, an assisting person is recommended.
• Prior to using the wheelchair, please check whether all
parts attached have been fastened properly.
• Never lift the wheelchair by parts that are not fixed
firmly (the armrests or legrests).
• Ensure that instantaneous/quick-release axles are positioned correctly in the axle holders, as otherwise there
is a danger of injury.
• Please note that the danger of tipping is increased by
shifts in weight (e.g. strong upper body movements or
overcoming obstacles). The critical obstacle height is 23
• Steps and larger obstacles may only be crossed with the
help of at least two assisting persons. For this, use lifting points 1 and 2 (see overview of the wheelchair). If
equipment such as ramps, lifts or step climbing aids are
available, these should be used.
• When using on a downward incline, it must be noted
that a danger of tipping exists from 8% (5°). It is
recommended to use tilt protection.
Bischoff & Bischoff GmbH • 03.01.2012
• Avoid running against obstacles (steps, kerbs) without
braking or moving down steps.
• Avoid using on uneven, loose surfaces.
• An assisting person should be used if going over
obstacles (steps etc.). Use the tip assist (see overview of
wheelchair) to tip the wheelchair appropriately.
• When getting into or out of the wheelchair, apply both
locking brakes.
• Ensure a sufficient profile depth of your tyres.
• Observe the road traffic regulations when on the road.
• The passive lighting (reflectors) of your wheelchair must
always be visible to other road users.
• The locking brake must not be used for braking when
the wheelchair is moving.
• When braking at fast speeds or on long downward slopes when using the push rims, fingers and hand surfaces become hot. Caution! Danger of burning!
• We recommend that leather gloves are used for use outdoors. These increase grip and protect fingers and
hands from dirt and injury at the same time.

To make it as easy as possible to get into and out of your
B+B folding wheelchair, you can easily swing the legrests
outwards or inwards if needed without having to remove
them (Fig. 8).
• Pull the handle. This opens the locking device.
• Now you can swing the legrests outwards or inwards.
Fig. 8
• If necessary, fold the foot plates upwards first.
To return to the original position, simply swing the legrest
forwards until it locks into place.
When standing up from the wheelchair, under no
circumstances stand on the foot plates!
Setting the legrest length
The length of the legrests can be adjusted in 4 20 mm
steps up to a total of 80 mm.
• To do so, remove the Allen bolt (4 mm) and set the
legrest as required (Fig. 9)

To lock the brake, simply push the brake lever forwards
until it locks (Fig. 18). To release the locking brake, simply
pull the brake lever backwards (Fig. 18).
Adjusting the knee lever locking
brake (compact brake)
If you notice that the braking effect is no longer sufficient
or is uneven, proceed as follows:
Fig. 16
• With pneumatic tyres, first check the tyre pressure. It
must be 300 - 400 kPa (3-4 bar - not necessary for puncture-free tyres).
• Check the tyre profile depth. At the same time, check
for even wear of the tyres. If the profile depth in the
middle of the tread is <1mm, the tyres must be changed
by a specialist retailer.
Fig. 17
Bischoff & Bischoff GmbH • 03.01.2012
Fig. 18
• Now check the adjustment of the brake. This must be
set such that the gap between the tyre tread and the
braking bolt with the brake open is 15 mm (Fig.19). The
braking bolt must be horizontal, i.e. parallel to the ground surface.
• After unscrewing the two rounded head bolts with 5
mm Allen head on the brake mounting (Fig. 20), you
can position the brake correctly.
To ensure optimum braking function, the pneumatic tyres must take pressures of 300 - 400 kPa
(3-4 bar)! Not adhering to the required tyre pressure can lead to loss of braking efficiency!
Fig. 19
The compact brakes only operate on one driving
wheel each!
Ensure that both drive wheels have the same tyre
pressure with pneumatic tyres to achieve good
directional stability!
After completion of the setting process, retighten
the loosened bolts and test the brakes!
In general!
Fig. 20
As the brakes are one of the most important items of
safety equipment on your wheelchair, the wish for a service braking system for the accompanying person can be
fulfilled with the optional drum brake. As well as its use
as a locking brake for the wheelchair, the drum brake can
be used for braking while moving.
As the drum brake uses a brake shoe that is not applied
to the tyres but to the brake drum in the wheel hub, this
braking system is largely independent of the tyre state
(air pressure) and thus significantly safer. (Drum brake:
see options)
Pyro Light /
Pyro Light XL
7.6. Wheels and tyres
Check for correct attachment of the wheels each
time they are attached!
The spoked wheels are attached with a quick-release axle
(Ø 12 mm) to the frame with an adapter block (Fig. 2122). The Pyro Light model comes with quick-release axle
as standard. (For quick-release axles, see Section 7.7)
Fig. 21
Drive wheels
Rubber tyres with an inner tube or PU tyres (puncture
proof, no valve) size 24"x1³/8" are fitted as standard on
your Pyro Light. If they become worn or defective, the authorised specialist retailer should be requested to undertake the repair.
To ensure optimum operating safety of the brakes/wheelchair, the pneumatic tyres must have a
pressure of 300-400 kPa (3-4 bar).
Fig. 22
Steering wheels
Rubber tyres with an inner tube or puncture proof tyres
(without valve) with a diameter of 6" (7" on the Pyro Light
XL) are mounted on your Pyro Light as standard. If they
become worn or defective, the authorised specialist retailer should be requested to undertake the repair.
Fig. 23
To ensure optimum operating safety of the
wheelchair, the pneumatic steering wheels must
have a tyre pressure of 200 - 250 kPa (2-2.5
Bischoff & Bischoff GmbH • 03.01.2012
7.7. Quick-release axles
To achieve significantly easier transport of your
wheelchair, the wheels are equipped with quick-release
axles as standard:
Fig. 24
• Press on the locking button of the quick-release axle
with a finger and remove the wheel (Fig. 24).
• When reattaching the wheel, simple push the wheel
back into the mount. At the same time, press the
locking button.
Ensure when pushing back in that the quickrelease axle is pushed! Check after pushing back
in that the wheel is firmly attached by pulling it
towards you without operating the locking button of the quick-release axle.
7.8. Seat height adjustment
The position of the drive wheel is a criterion for easy, comfortable and pleasant use.
• The drive wheels and steering wheels can be adjusted
vertically to allow the seat height to be adjusted.
• The wheelbase can be extended by turning the adapter
block by 180°. This increases the stability against tipping backwards (note the assembly instructions)
Pyro Light /
Pyro Light XL
To attach, remove, swing away and adjust the legrests and
the legrest length, please refer to Section 7.2

side parts with long arm cushions, the tray is simply pushed onto the armrests from the front with the guides provided (Fig. 30). To remove the activity tray, simply pull it
out again.
Fig. 30
With desk side parts with armrests, the tray is placed with
the guides supplied and attached with star head screws
(Fig. 30). To remove the activity tray, first unscrew the star
head screws and pull the tray out.
Bischoff & Bischoff GmbH • 03.01.2012
9.3. Safety belt
If required, a safety belt is available as an accessory. This
is mounted on the side frame of the wheelchair with the
side part either temporarily removed or swung away (Fig.
31). Take the open end of the belt once around the side
frame tube and fix it with the belt buckle.
Fig. 31
Length adjustment is also carried out with the belt buckle.
Adjust the belt length such that the belt sits firmly but
does not apply pressure.
10. Driving
Sit in your B+B wheelchair. Make sure you are sitting as
far back as possible.
The push rims on the drive wheels are used to move the
wheelchair. Practice moving the wheelchair carefully at
first until you are familiar with it and the way it behaves.
Wheelchairs have only a limited ability to resist tipping
and sliding. Particular care is necessary when braking and
moving onto or turning on inclines. Leaning a long way
out of the wheelchair increases the danger of tipping. For
increased safety, all wheelchairs can be fitted with a
safety belt (not standard).
To get over obstacles more easily, the assisting person
must position the wheelchair at the correct angle to the
obstacle by pressing on the tip assist (Fig. 32).
Before getting in or out, the locking brake must be put on.
Use outside of the home should only be undertaken with
Pyro Light /
Pyro Light XL
sufficient experience. Where possible, somebody should
accompany you.
The static stability of the base model is 5°
(approx. 8%).
The critical obstacle height for the base model in the most
adverse situation (max. weight shift backwards) is 23 mm.
Fig. 32
* The critical obstacle height is the height where the centre of gravity (with user) is vertical over the edge of the
obstacle. If the user attempts to move forward over the
obstacle by driving the drive wheels without shifting the
centre of gravity forwards, the wheelchair tips over backwards.
According to STVZO 66/1 (German Road Traffic Act) of
01.01.1981, hand propelled wheelchairs require permanently attached lighting to participate in public road traffic (including on footpaths).
This consists of (passive):
• two red reflectors to the rear
• two amber reflectors on both sides.
If the wheelchair is used after dark, the following are
necessary in addition (active):
• one white light forwards
• one red light backwards.
These lights must work from an electrical circuit independent of the movement (batteries) power.

Even a wheelchair that can no longer be used represents
valuable material that can be recycled into the industrial
process. Therefore, never throw away your wheelchair for
disposal in the household ld waste, but have it disposed
of professionally in an official waste-disposal centre. Your
local waste service will be pleased to advise you. The environment will thank you.
16. Appendices
Care, hygiene and maintenance
information for the Bischoff &
Bischoff operating instructions
Like all technical products, patient vehicles, mobile walking aids and patient beds, should be subject to a regular
check and maintenance by authorised professionals. These
checks should primarily ensure the safety of the user.
Beyond this, regular care of the product should guarantee
proper functioning even after long use. We have prepared
some care tips, a hygiene plan and a maintenance table
for you below. We hope to have provided a good overview
of the most important care, hygiene and maintenance
work for your Bischoff & Bischoff product.
a) Care instructions
Cleaning of the seat and back covers can be undertaken
with warm water and a sponge or soft brush. For stubborn
stains, standard detergent can be added to the water.
Please note: Never use aggressive cleaning agents such as
