MANDATORY! Do not operate your new scooter for the first time without completely read-
ing and understanding this owner's manual.
Your scooter is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an
extensive variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the scooter user. Please be aware that the
final selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of scooter to be used is the responsibility of the
scooter user, who is capable of making such a decision, and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical
doctor, physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted
the scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorised Pride
Dealer in the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the scooter user will need to prac-
tice operating the scooter in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a
family member or care professional specially trained in assisting a scooter user in various daily living
As you begin using your scooter during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which
you will need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as
you manoeuvre through doorways, on and off lifts, up and down ramps and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips and other safety considerations that will help you become accustomed
to operating the scooter safely.
Pride has designed and engineered your scooter to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range
of accessories is available from Pride to further customise your scooter to better suit your needs and/or
preferences. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove or disable any feature,
part or function of your scooter.
WARNING! Do not modify your scooter in any way not authorised by Pride. Do not use
accessories if they have not been tested or approved for Pride products.
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move your scooter by any of its removable parts,
including the armrests, seat or shroud. Pride recommends use of only solid, non-
removable frame components such as scooter securement points or the front and rear
frame weldments to lift or move your scooter.
WARNING! Lifting the scooter should be accomplished with no fewer than three people,
one at the front and two at the rear of the unit.
PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
