equipment while the batteries are charging.
‹ Warning
1.
To prevent injury to yourself or others, always ensure that the power is switched off when getting on or
off of the scooter.
2.
Always check that the drive wheels are engaged (drive mode) before driving. Do not switch off the power
when the scooter is still moving forward. This will bring the chair to an extremely abrupt stop.
3.
Do not use this product or any available optional equipment without first completely reading and
understanding these instructions. If you are unable to understand the warnings, cautions or instructions,
contact a healthcare professional, the dealers or technical supports before attempting to use this equipment,
otherwise, injury or damage may occur.
4.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the scooter user will need to
practice operating the scooter in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as
a family member or care professional especially trained in assisting a scooter user in various daily living
activities. Consult with your physician if you are taking any medication that may affect your ability to
operate your scooter safely.
5.
Do not attempt to lift or move a power scooter by any of its removable parts including the armrests, seats
or shrouds. Personal injury and damage to the power chair may result.
6.
Never try to use your scooter beyond its limitations as described in this manual.

‹ Modifications
Heartway Medical Product has designed and engineered power scooters to provide maximum utility. However,
under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove, or disable any part or function of your power scooter.
Personal injury and damage to the power chair may result.
1. Do not modify your power scooter in any way not authorized by Heartway. Do not use accessories if they
have not been tested or approved for Heartway products.
2. Get to know the feel of your power scooter and its capabilities. Heartway recommends that you perform a
safety check before each use to make sure your scooter operates safely.
‹ Inspections prior to using your power scooter:
1. If equipped with pneumatic tires, please check for proper tire inflations.
2. Please check all electrical connections and make sure they are tight and not corroded.
3. Please check all harness connections and make sure they are secured properly.
4. Please check the brakes.
‹ Weight limitation.
1. Please refer to the specifications table for weight capacity information. Power scooter is rated for a
maximum weight capacity.
2. Stay within the specified weight capacity for your scooter. Exceeding the weight capacity voids your
warranty. Heartway will not be held responsible for injuries or property damage resulting from failure to
observe weight limitations.
‹ Tire inflation
1.
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tires, it is necessary to check the air pressure at least one time a
week.
2.
Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life your tires and ensure the smooth operation while riding.
3.
Do not under-inflate or over-inflate your tires. It is critically important that 30-25 psi (2-2.4bar) tire
pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at all times.
4.
Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could over-inflate them, resulting in a burs tire.
‹ Temperature
1.
Some of the parts of the power scooter are susceptible to change in temperature. The controller can only
operate in temperature that ranges between -25
2.
~ 50 .
At extreme low temperatures, the batteries may freeze, and your power scooter may not be able to operate.
In extreme high temperatures, it may operate at slower speeds due to a safety feature of the controller that
prevents damage to the motors and other electrical components.

ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI)
The rapid development of electronics, especially in the area of communications, has saturated our environment
with electromagnetic (EM) radio waves that are emitted by television, radio and communication signals. These
EM wave are invisible and their strength increases as one approach the source. All electrical conductors act as
antennas to the EM signals and, to varying degrees, all power wheelchairs and scooters are susceptible to
electromagnetic interference (EMI). The interference could result in abnormal, unintentional movement and/or
erratic control of the vehicle. The United States Food and drug Administration (FDA) suggests that the
following statement be incorporated to the user’s manual for all power scooter like the S12. Power scooters
may as susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is interfering electromagnetic energy emitted
from sources such as radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAN) transmitter, two-way radios, cellular
phones and alarm systems of shops. The interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the power scooter to
release its brakes, move by itself or move in unintended directions. It can also permanently damage the
powered scooter’s control system. The intensity of the EM energy can be measured in volts per meter
(V/m).Each powered scooter can resist EMI up to a certain intensity. This is called “immunity level”. The
higher the immunity level the greater the protection. At this time, current technology is capable of providing at
least 20 V/m of immunity level, which would provide useful protection against common sources of radiated
EMI.
Following the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of unintended brake release or powered scooter
movement that could result in serious injury:
1.
Do not turn on hand-held personal communication devices such as citizens band (CB) radios and cellular
phones while the powered scooter is turned on.
2.
Be aware of nearby transmitters such as radio or TV stations and try to avoid coming close to them.
3.
If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the powered scooter off as soon as it is safe.
4.
Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the powered scooter, may make it more
susceptible to interference from radio wave sources (Note: It is difficult to evaluate the effect on the
overall immunity of the powered scooter).
5.
Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the powered scooter manufacturer, and
note whether there is a radio wave source nearby.
6
TURN OFF YOUR POWERED SCOOTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WHEN EXPERIENCING THE
FOLLOWING:
¾ Unintentional scooter movements
¾ Unintended or uncontrollable direction.
¾ Unexpected brake release
The FDA has written to the manufacturers of power scooters asking them to test new products to be sure they
provide a reasonable degree of immunity against EMI. The FDA requires that a powered wheelchair should
have an immunity level at least 20 V/m, which provides a reasonable degree of protection against more
common sources of EMI. The higher the immunity level the greater the protection. Your powered scooter has
an immunity level of 20 V/m which should protect against common sources of EMI. Warning: The scooter
itself can disturb the performance of the electromagnetic fields such as emitted by alarm systems of shops.

SCOOTER MAINTENANCE & REPAIR
Your power scooter is designed for minimal maintenance. However, like any motorized vehicle it requires
routine maintenance. To keep your S12 for years of trouble-free operation, we recommend you follow the
following maintenance checks as scheduled.
DAILY CHECKS
1. Visual check on the conditions of tires.
2. Inspect the battery condition meter on the controller to determine if batteries need to be charged.
WEEKLY CHECKS
1. Your power scooter comes with standard pneumatic tires. If your power scooter comes with optional air tires,
make sure to maintain the pressure of the tires between 30-35 psi.
MONTHLY CHECKS
1. Visually inspect the controller harnesses. Make sure that they are not frayed, cut or have any exposed wires.
SEMI-ANNUAL CHECKS
1. Check the motor brushes. We recommended that your authorized dealer inspect the brushes every six months
or sooner if your power scooter is not operating smoothly. If inspection determines excessive wear on the
brushes, they must be replaced or motor damage will result.
5
Warning! Failure to maintain the brushes could void the power scooter warranty.
To inspect or replace the motor brushes:
