Always fully charge your power chair before operating.
Always make sure the power is off when getting in and out of the power chair.
Always make sure the clutch levers are engaged (parallel to the wheels) before getting in
or out the wheelchair.
To prolong the life of the battery, it is suggested you charge the battery after every trip. If
you do not drive it for long periods of time, charge it at least once per month.
If the battery gauge goes to RED, charge the battery as soon as possible. If the battery is
totally discharged, it could be damaged, and/or its life could be shortened.
As the battery ages and deteriorates, the battery power will decrease faster.
In cold weather, the battery capacity will be less.
When you are charging the battery, please make sure that the input-voltage (115V/230V)
switch on your charger matches your power source.
Avoid unnecessarily moving of the power chair.
Please fasten the seat belt, if included, while driving and check the proper position of the
anti-tip wheel.
Our products function best at temperatures between 32-122o Fahrenheit.
Disassembling of controller, motor or charger by end user is prohibited; the dealer will not
take any responsibility on these kinds of situations.
Prevent the controller, charger and battery from getting wet; this can cause a malfunction.
To ensure the user’s familiarity with the power chair’s operation, the new driver should
practice driving in a spacious area, traveling forward, backward, left, right, using the
brakes, and going both up and down slopes.
Please turn off the power chair when the chair is not is use and before charging the
battery.
The following areas and conditions can be dangerous and should be avoided; darkness,
dim lighting, steep slopes, rain, snow, shoulder of the road, slippery areas, etc.
Please do not drive your power chair at night without proper lighting.
Please do not lower the footplate to less than 2” above the ground, because accidents
may occur due to insufficient ground clearance.
Keep your feet on the footplate at all times during operation and do not stand on the
footplate. If your feet are in the improper position, you can be seriously injured.
When the power does not come on, recheck all connections and recharge if necessary.
Please check the screws under the joystick periodically and make sure they are not loose,
and tighten them if needed.

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
This portion of the manual will provide the user with basic information about the problems with
EMI (electromagnetic interference), protective measures can be used to either lessen the
possibility of exposure or to minimize the degree of exposure; this section also shows some
conditions that unexpected or erratic movements may cause.
◊
Caution
It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible effects
of electromagnetic interference on your electric ActiveCare power wheelchair.
ELECTROMAGNETIC
SOURCES
INTERFERENCE
(EMI)
FROM
RADIO
WAVE
Power wheelchairs may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is
interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted from sources such as radio stations, TV
stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones. The
interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the power wheelchair to release its brakes,
move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also permanently damage the power
wheelchair’s control system. The intensity of the interfering EM energy can be measured in
volts per meter (V/m). Each power wheelchair can resist EMI up to a certain intensity level.
The higher the immunity level the greater the protection. At this time, current technology is
capable of achieving at least a 20 V/m immunity level, which would provide useful protection
from the more common sources of radiated EMI. This power wheelchair model as shipped,
with no further modification, has an immunity level of 20 V/m without any accessories.
There are a number of sources of relatively intense electromagnetic fields in the 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 to EMI will be minimized.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types:
1.
2.
Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitter-receivers with the antenna mounted directly
on the transmitting unit). Examples include: citizens band (CB) or hand held radios,
(security, fire, and police transceivers), cellular telephones and other personal
communication devices.
NOTE: Some cellular telephones transmit a signal while they are ON but not being used.
Medium-range mobile transceivers, such as those used in police cars, fire trucks,
ambulances and taxis usually have the antenna mounted on the outside of the
wheelchair.
Renegade/P24 Owner’s Manual
4
For service assistance, please call your authorized ActiveCare dealer.
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 player, and cassette players, and small appliances, such as electric
shavers and hair dryers, are not likely to cause EMI problems to your power wheelchair.
POWER WHEELCHAIR ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI)
EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one moves closer to a transmitting antenna
(source). The EM fields from hand-held radio wave sources (transceivers) are of special
concern. It is possible to unintentionally bring high levels of EM energy very close to the power
wheelchair’s control system while using these devices; this can affect your wheelchair’s
movement and braking. Therefore, the warnings listed below are recommended to prevent
possible interference with the control system of a power wheelchair.
Warning!
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV
stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular
phones can affect power wheelchairs. Following the warnings listed below
should reduce the chance of unintended brake release or power wheelchair
movement which could result in serious injuries.
1. Do not operate hand-held transceivers-receivers, such as citizens band
(CB) radios, or turn ON personal communication devices, such as cellular
phones, while the power wheelchairs turned ON.
2. Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to
avoid getting close to them.
3. If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the power wheelchair
OFF as soon as it is safe.
4. Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the power
wheelchair, may make it more susceptible to EMI.
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to
ActiveCare Medical, and note whether there were sources of EMI nearby.

TRANSPORTING YOUR CHAIR
If you will be traveling with your power chair, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation
product or portable ramp to aid in transportation. ActiveCare suggests you closely review the
instructions, specifications, and safety information included with the lift/elevation product
before using that product.
Warning!
Never sit on your power chair when it is being used in connection with any type
of lift/elevation product or portable ramp. Your power chair was not designed
with such use in mind and any damage or injury incurred from such use is not
the responsibility of ActiveCare.
ActiveCare recommends that you do not remain seated in your power chair while traveling in a
motor vehicle. The power chair should be stowed in the trunk of a car or in the back of a truck
or van with batteries removed and properly secured.
Warning!
Do not sit on your power chair while it is in a moving vehicle.
Warning!
Always be sure your power chair and its batteries are properly secured when it
is being transported. Batteries should be secured in an upright position and
protective caps should be installed on the battery terminals. Batteries should
not be transported with any flammable or combustible items.
POSITIONING BELTS
Your authorized ActiveCare Provider, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are
responsible for determining your requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your
power chair safely.
13
Renegade/P24 Owner’s Manual
For service assistance, please call your authorized ActiveCare dealer.
Warning!
If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your power chair, make sure it
is fastened securely in order to reduce the possibility of a fall from your power
chair.
Warning!
The positioning belt is not designed for use as a seat belt in a motor vehicle.
Nor is your power chair suitable for use as a seat in any vehicle. Anyone
traveling in a vehicle should be properly belted into seats approved by the
vehicle manufacturer.
USE ON INCLINES
Many buildings have wheelchair-accessible ramps with specified degrees of incline, 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 power chair.
Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
DO NOT use on inclines greater than 12°.
Take wide swings with your power chair’s front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that,
the power chair’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into
or get hung up on any railing corners.
When driving down a ramp, keep the power chair’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed
setting to ensure a safely controlled descent.
Avoid sudden stops and starts. When climbing an incline, try to keep your power chair moving.
If you must stop, start up again slowly and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an
incline, set your power chair to the slowest speed setting and drive in the forward direction
only. If your power chair starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired,
allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the joystick, then push the joystick forward
slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
Warning!
When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the power chair in
freewheel mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
Warning!
You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas
covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
Renegade/P24 Owner’s Manual
14
For service assistance, please call your authorized ActiveCare dealer.
Warning!
When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the
incline. Drive your power chair straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the
possibility of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating
an incline.
Warning!
If your power chair is equipped with a reclining seatback, do not attempt to
negotiate inclines with the seat in a reclined position. Do not attempt to
negotiate obstacles with the seat in a reclined position unless an attendant is
present to help stabilize the chair. Failure to heed could result in the power
chair tipping over.
Warning!
Never travel down an incline backward. Doing so may cause the power chair to
tip. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
While your power chair is equipped with rear anti-tip wheels, excessively high cornering
speeds can still 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 power chair from tipping.
Warning!
When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable center of
gravity. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall.

Batteries & Charging
Before using your power mobility product for the first time, you will need to charge your
batteries for 8 – 10 hours to ensure that they are fully charged.
Suggestion
ActiveCare Medical recommends that frequent users of their power mobility
products charge their batteries overnight, 8 – 10 hours, to make certain they
have a full charge each day.
Suggestion
ActiveCare Medical recommends that infrequent users of their power mobility
product charge their batteries once a week for 8 – 10 hours.
ActiveCare Medical’s battery chargers are specific to our products and are designed to not
overcharge the batteries. You may leave your power mobility product plugged into the charger
for longer than 8 – 10 hours without causing damage to the batteries.
In some instances ActiveCare Medical’s battery charger may show two green lights indicating
that the batteries are fully charged—this is not always the case. A good rule of thumb is to
charge your batteries 8 – 10 hours before each use to ensure that your power mobility product
has a full charge.
