Instruction Booklet: Safety Infomation on Electronic Interference (EMI)
CAUTION: It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible effects
of Electromagnetic Interference on your motorized scooter.
Powered wheelchairs and motorized scooters may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference
(EMI), which is interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted from sources such a radio
stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones. The
interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the motorized scooter to release its brakes,
move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also permanently damage the motorized
scooter control system. The intensity of the interfering EM energy can be measured in volts
per meter (V/m). Each motorized scooter can resist EMI up to 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 at least a 20 V/m immunity level, which would provide useful
protection from the more common sources of radiated EMI. This immunity level of this motorized
scooter model is 20 V/m.
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 warnings listed below, your
risk to EMI will be minimized.
Tiller Angle Adjustment:.
• Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitters-receivers) with the antenna mounted directly on
the transmitting unit. Examples include: citizens band (CB) radios, “walkie talkie,” security, fire,
and police transceivers, cellular telephones, and other personal communication devices;
CAUTION: Some cellular telephones and similar devices transmit signals while they are ON,
even when not being used.
• 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; and
• Long-range transmitters and transceivers such as commercial broadcast transmitters (radio
and TV broadcast antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios.
CAUTION: Other types of hand-held devices, such as cordless phones, laptop computers,
AM/FM radios, TV sets, CD players, and cassette players, and small appliances, such as
electric shavers and hair dryers, so far as we know, are not likely to cause EMI problems to
your motorized scooter.
Instruction Booklet: Safety Infomation on Electronic Interference (EMI)
Motorized Scooter Electromagnetic Interference:
Because EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one move closer to the 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 motorized
scooter control system while using these devices. This can affect motorized scooter movement
and braking. Therefore, the warnings listed below are recommended to prevent possible
interference with the control system of the motorized scooter.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur radio
(HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones can affect motorized scooters. Following
the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of unintended brake release or motorized
scooter movement which could result in serious injury.
• Do not operate hand-held transceivers (transmitters-receivers), such as citizens band (CB)
radios, or turn ON personal communication devices, such as cellular phones, while the
motorized scooter is turned ON;
• Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to avoid coming close to
• If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the motorized scooter OFF as soon as it
is safe;
• Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the motorized scooter, may
make it more susceptible to EMI; and
CAUTION: There is no easy way to evaluate their effect on the overall immunity of the
motorized scooter.
• Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the distributor listed on the
inside front cover of this manual. Note whether there is a source of EMI nearby.
Important Information:
• 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.
• The immunity level of this product is 20 V/m.
