Is it possible to attach the R20 on an Iris or SR45?
This is currently not possible mainly due to the tube shapes. Iris tubes are oval and SR45 tubes are rectangular.
Are anti tips required?
The use of anti tips depends on the COG adjustment of the wheelchair, the attendant and the application (E.g. Environment, such as hilly areas). The location of the R20 does not make the wheelchair more tippy.
Which back tube / push handle diameters are covered by the operating unit clamp system?
The operating unit clamp system covers back tube / push handle diameters from 19-25 mm.
Which chairs is the R20 compatible with?
The R20 is compatible with all wheelchair models that have a box frame and tube diameter between 22 and 28 mm. For the latest information vist the R20 webpage.
How can I evaluate if the R20 will work with the seat width/rear seat height of my wheelchair?
This can be evaluated with help of the docking arm length matrix available on our web page. This is available in the parts manual (section documents) or on the web page.
How far can the telescopic tubes of the docking arms be extended?
The maximum extension is indicated by the red mark, this should not be exceeded.
Is a drumbrake mandatory?
The R20 is a pushing device without any braking function. A drumbrake is only recommended, but not mandatory, as it always depends on the capabilities of the user and the area of application. (E.g. Environment, sloping terrain.)
Can the wheelchair user self-drive using the R20?
No. Self-driving with the R20 by the wheelchair user is extremely dangerous and is not allowed.
Can you attach the docking system B on the cross brace?
No. Docking systems must always be attached to non moving frame parts and the docking pins must always be in parallel to the ground.
Can you drive through puddles with the R20?
As the motor has a protection class of IP 54 and the puddle depth is less than the tyre height, there should be no risk - but please always bear in mind the puddle depth.
Can you shorten (cut) the docking arms?
No. Please do not attempt to shorten or cut the docking arms. Complete docking arms or only tubes are available as a spare part. A matrix of the required docking arm length is available in the parts manual (section documents) or on the web page.
Can I transport the R20 in an airplane?
Yes, the R20 can be transported in an airplane, because the battery power is 209 Wh while the max allowed battery power for medical devices is 300 Wh. You can find the IATA certificate on the Sunrise Medical website.
Can the charger be used outdoors?
No. The charger can only be used INDOORS and has a protection class of IP 21.
Can the dealer adapt the docking arm length?
Yes, the dealer can adapt the docking arm length economically, via spare parts (tube set) or ordering complete docking arms.
Can you attach the R20 to a Neon²?
Yes it is possible, please use docking B and choose the option EMR000146 Neon² on the orderform.
