Wheelchairs — Part 4: Energy consumption of electric wheelchairs and scooters for determination of theoretical distance range
|Publication Date:||1 October 2008|
|ICS Code (Aids and adaptation for moving):||11.180.10|
This part of ISO 7176 specifies methods for determining the theoretical distance range of electrically powered wheelchairs, including scooters, using measurements of energy consumed while driving and the nominal energy capacity of the wheelchair's battery set. It is applicable to electrically powered wheelchairs with a maximum nominal speed no greater than 15 km/h, intended to provide indoor and/or outdoor mobility for one disabled person whose mass is within the range represented by ISO 7176-11. This part of ISO 7176 also includes requirements for test reports and information disclosure.
