Scope

This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for manual wheelchairs intended to carry one person of mass not greater than 100 kg.
It also specifies requirements and test methods for manual wheelchairs with electrically powered ancillary equipment.
This European Standard does not apply in total to:
- wheelchairs intended for special purposes, such as sports, showering or toileting;
- custom-made wheelchairs;
- stand-up wheelchairs; and
- add-on power kits for the propulsion of manual wheelchairs.
NOTE 1 – The application of this standard is limited to wheelchairs with a maximum occupant mass of 100 kg because the maximum mass of dummy specified in ISO 7176-11:1992 is 100 kg. Annex A (informative) provides guidance for construction of dummies of mass 125 kg and 150 kg. At the time of publication, a new edition of ISO 7176-11 was under development, including test dummies with masses above 100 kg.
NOTE 2 – Requirements for electrically powered wheelchairs are specified in EN 12184.
