4 Accessories
Belt with metal buckle, adjustable both sides
4.1 Postural belts
A postural belt is an option which can either be fixed to the mobility
device ex-works or can be retrofitted by your specialist dealer. If
your mobility device is fitted with a postural belt, your specialist
dealer will have informed you about fitting and usage.
The postural belt is used to help the mobility device user keep an
optimum sitting position. Correct use of the belt assists the user
in sitting securely, comfortably and well-positioned in the mobility
device, especially for such users who do not have such a good sense
of balance while sitting.
We recommend using the postural belt whenever the
mobility device is used. The belt should be tight enough to
ensure that you are sitting comfortably and that your body is
in the correct sitting position.
4.1.1 Types of postural belts
Your wheelchair can be fitted with the following postural belt types
ex-works. If your wheelchair has been fitted with a different belt
to those listed below, please ensure that you have received the
manufacturer's documentation with regard to correct fitting and use.
Belt with metal buckle, adjustable one side
Belt can be adjusted on both sides. This means that the buckle can be
centrally positioned.
4.1.2 Adjusting the postural belt correctly
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Ensure that you are sitting correctly, which means that you are
sitting right at the back of the seat, your pelvis is positioned erect
and as symmetrically as possible, not to the front, to the side or
at one edge of the seat.
Position the postural belt so that your hipbones can be easily
felt above the belt.
Adjust the belt length using one of the adjustment aids described
above. The belt should be adjusted so that you can fit a flat hand
between the belt and your body.
The buckle should be positioned as centrally as possible. In doing
so, carry out adjustments on both sides as much as possible.
Check your belt every week to ensure that it is still in good
working condition, to ensure it has no damage or wear, and
that it is fixed properly to the mobility device. If the belt
is only fastened with a bolted connection, ensure that the
connection has not loosened or come undone. You can find
more information about maintenance work on belts in the

•
6.1 Driving
The maximum load capacity that is stated in the technical
data only states that the system is designed for this mass
in total. However, this does not mean that one can sit
a person with this body weight in the mobility device
without restrictions. Attention must be paid to the body
proportions, such as height, weight distribution, abdominal
belt, leg and calf strap and seat depth. These factors have
a strong influence on driving features such as tilt stability
and traction. The permissible axle loads in particular must
be adhered to (refer to 11 Technical data, page 95). It may
possibly be necessary to carry out adaptations to the seat
system.
6.2 Before driving for the first time
Before you take your first trip, you should familiarize yourself well
with the operation of the vehicle and with all operating elements.
Take your time to test all functions and driving modes.
The rear mirror (if installed) is adjusted so you can look behind
at all times without having to bend forward or shift your seating
position.

Check the position of the front wheels. They must be in driving
direction and at right angles to the obstacle.
Approach slowly and keep at a consistent speed until the rear
wheels have also passed over the obstacle.
Descending
The approach to descend an obstacle is the same as to ascend it with
the difference that you need not stop before descending.
1.
Descend the obstacle very slowly.
6.6 Driving up and down gradients
For information concerning the maximum safe slope, refer to 11
Technical data, page 95.
CAUTION!
Risk of tipping over
– Only ever drive downhill at a maximum of 2/3 of the
top speed. Avoid sudden changes of direction or
abrupt braking when driving on slopes.
– Always return the backrest of your seat or the seat tilt
(if adjustable seat tilt is available) to an upright position
before ascending slopes. We recommend that you
position the seat backrest or the seat tilt slightly to
the rear before descending slopes.
– Always lower the lifter (if fitted) to its lowest position
before ascending or descending a slope.
– Never attempt to ascend or descend a slope on
slippery surfaces or where there is a risk of skidding
(such as wet pavement, ice etc).
– Avoid trying to get out of the vehicle on an incline
or a gradient.
– Always drive straight in the direction the road or path
you are on goes, rather than attempting to zigzag.
– Never attempt to turn around on an incline or a slope.
CAUTION!
Braking distance is much longer on a downhill
slope than on even terrain
– Never drive down a slope that exceeds the maximum
safe slope (refer to 11 Technical data, page 95).
6.7 Handling the drive lock-out feature
Drive lock-out is a feature designed to prevent the wheelchair from
being driven after the seating system has been tilted beyond the safe
total angle relative to the vertical position. The total angle can be any
combination of seat angle, backrest angle and/or surface angle.
70
1528224-Q
Usage
WARNING!
Risk of tipping
Drive lock-out only responds when you adjust angles in
standstill. The feature CANNOT identify angle changes
during driving, for example, when accessing a slope.
– Stop your wheelchair before driving on a slope, set the
total angle to a value including the angle of the slope
you want to access. Start driving. If the drive lock-out
allows driving then it is safe to drive on the slope with
the original seat and backrest angles set.
When you set the seat angle and the backrest angle according
to our recommendations before driving on a slope, you can
safely drive on slopes. Refer to 2 Safety, page 10.
Depending on the type of your remote, one of the following will
occur when the drive lock-out feature has been activated:
•
•
•
•
A minus symbol displays on the remote
A crossed out drive profile number displays on the remote
Left to right chase on the battery display
Left to right chase on the battery display alternating with a
steady display
For details on what your remote displays, refer to the user manual
of the remote.
Checking drive lock-out on a slope
If you are unsure whether the angle setting of your wheelchair is
within the safe range when driving on a slope, do the following:
1528224-Q
1.
2.
Stop the wheelchair and switch to adjust mode and back to drive
mode.
Start driving.
If the total angle is outside of the safe range, the drive lock-out
will inhibit driving. Adjust the angle as described below.
Adjusting the total angle to allow driving
1.
2.
Reduce the seat angle and/or the backrest angle to set the total
angle to a value within the safe range.
Start driving.
If the total angle is within the safe range, the wheelchair moves.
6.8 Use on public roads
If you wish to use your mobility device on public roads and lighting is
required by national legislation, then your mobility device needs to
be fitted with an appropriate lighting system.
Contact your Invacare dealer if you have any questions.
6.9 Pushing the mobility device in freewheel
mode
The motors of the mobility device are equipped with automatic
brakes, preventing that the mobility device starts rolling out of
control when the remote is switched off. When pushing the mobility
device manually whilst freewheeling, the magnetic brakes must be
disengaged.
Pushing the mobility device by hand may require more
physical force than expected (more than 100 N). The
necessary force nevertheless complies with the requirements
of ISO 7176-14:2008.
71
Invacare® Spectra XTR Series
6.9.1 Disengaging motors
CAUTION!
Risk of the mobility device running away
– When the motors are disengaged (for push operation
whilst freewheeling), the electromagnetic motor
brakes are deactivated. When the mobility device is
parked, the levers for engaging and disengaging the
motors must without fail be locked firmly into the
"DRIVE" position (electromagnetic motor brakes
activated).
Disengaging the motor
1.
2.
Switch off remote.

Electrical system
7 Electrical system
In the following, you find information on how to charge, handle,
transport, store, maintain, and use batteries.
7.1 Electronics protection system
7.2.1 General information on charging
The vehicle drive electronics is fitted with an overload protection.
New batteries should always be fully charged once before their first
use. New batteries will be at their full capacity after having run
through approx. 10 - 20 charging cycles (break-in period). This
break-in period is necessary to fully activate the battery for maximum
performance and longevity. Thus, range and running time of your
mobility device could initially increase with use.
If the drive is severely overloaded over a long period (for example,
during steep climbs) and, above all, at simultaneous high external
temperatures, the electronic system can overheat. In this case,
the vehicle performance is gradually reduced until it comes to a
standstill. The status display shows a corresponding flash code (please
refer to the user manual for your remote). If you switch the drive
electronics off and then on again, the error message is deleted and
the electronics can be switched on again. It can however take up to
five minutes until the electronics has cooled down enough for the
drives to apply their full performance.
If the drive is blocked due to an insurmountable obstacle, for
example, a curb or similar which is too high, and the driver attempts
to run the drive for more than 20 seconds against this obstacle, the
electronic system switches the drives off to avoid damage. The status
display shows a corresponding flash code (please refer to the user
manual for your remote). If you switch the drive electronics off and
then on again, the error message is deleted and the electronics can
be switched on again.
A defective main fuse may be replaced only after checking
the entire electric system. An Invacare specialised dealer
must perform the replacement. You can find information on
the fuse type in 11 Technical data, page 95.
Gel/AGM lead acid batteries do not have a memory effect as NiCd
batteries.
7.2.2 General instructions on charging
Follow the instructions listed below to ensure safe use and longevity
of the batteries:
•
•
•
•
•
•
7.2 Batteries
Power is supplied by two 12 V batteries. The batteries are
maintenance-free and only need regular charging.
1528224-Q
Charge 18 hours prior to initial usage.
We recommend charging the batteries daily after every
discharge even after partly discharge, as well as each night over
night. Depending on the level of discharge, it can take up to 12
hours until the batteries are fully charged again.

7.2.5 Storage and Maintenance
Follow the instructions listed below to ensure safe use and longevity
of the batteries:
•
Always store the batteries fully charged.
1528224-Q
Electrical system
•
•
•
•
Do not leave the batteries in a low state of charge for an
extended length of time. Charge a discharged battery as soon
as possible.
In case your mobility device is not used for a longer period
of time (that is more than two weeks), the batteries must be
charged at least once a month to maintain a full charge and
always be charged before use.
Avoid hot and cold extremes when storing. We recommend to
store batteries at a temperature of 15 °C.
Gel and AGM batteries are maintenance-free. Any performance
issues should be handled by a properly trained mobility device
technician.
7.2.6 Instructions on using the batteries
CAUTION!
Risk of damaging the batteries.
– Avoid ultra-deep discharges and never drain your
batteries completely.
•
•
•
Pay attention to the Battery Charge Indicator! Charge the
batteries when the Battery Charge Indicator shows that battery
charge is low.
How fast the batteries discharge depends on many
circumstances, such as ambient temperature, condition of the
surface of the road, tire pressure, weight of the driver, way of
driving and utilisation of lighting, if fitted.
Try to charge the batteries always before you reach the red LED
range.
The last 3 LED (two red and one orange) mean a remaining
capacity of about 15 %.
Driving with flashing red LED’s means an extreme stress for the
battery and should be avoided under normal circumstances.
1528224-Q
•
•
•
•
•
When only one red LED is flashing, the Battery Safe feature
is enabled. From this time, speed and acceleration is reduced
drastically. It will allow you to move the mobility device slowly
out of a dangerous situation before the electronic finally cuts off.
This is deep discharging and should be avoided.
Be aware that for temperatures below 20 °C, the nominal
battery capacity starts to decline. For example, at -10 °C
the capacity is reduced to about 50 % of the nominal battery
capacity.
To avoid damaging the batteries, never allow them to be fully
discharged. Do not drive on heavily discharged batteries if it is
not absolutely necessary, as this will strain the batteries unduly
and shorten their life expectancy.
The earlier you recharge the batteries, the longer they live.
The depth of discharge affects the cycle life. The harder a
battery has to work, the shorter is its life expectancy.
Examples:
– One deep discharge stresses the same as 6 normal cycles
(green /orange display off).
– The battery life is about 300 cycles at 80 % discharge (first 7
LED off), or about 3000 cycles at 10 % discharge (one LED
off).
The number of LED can vary depending on the
remote type.
•
Under normal operation, once a month the battery should be
discharged until all green and orange LED are off. This should be
done within one day. A 16 hour charge afterwards is necessary
as reconditioning.
7.2.7 Transporting batteries
The batteries supplied with your mobility device are not hazardous
goods. This classification is based on the German GGVS Hazardous
Goods Road Transport Ordinances, and the IATA/DGR Hazardous
