This presentation is intended to provide general information regarding the contents of the voluntary industry standards for wheelchair products. These standards are currently organized into 24 interrelated documents that are harmonized world-wide under the auspices of the international Standards Organization (ISO). They cover both manual and powered wheelchairs, including scooters. All ISO standards are reviewed every five years and revisions made as deemed necessary.
Those seeking more specific information are urged to obtain the current versions of the specific standards. Most national standards are adoptions of the ISO standard.
