CHAPTER 2: GENERAL WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

WARNINGS
Heed all warnings in this section. If you fail to do so, a fall, tip over or loss of
control may occur and cause severe injury to the user or others.

1.0 WEIGHT LIMIT

NEVER exceed the weight limit of 364 kg. (800) lbs. (model 7700), for combined
weight of user, patient and items carried. Exceeding weight limit may cause the chair
to fail.

2.0 TO REDUCE THE RISK OF AN ACCIDENT

2.1 BEFORE driving you should be trained in the safe use of a power chair by your
health care professional.
2.2 Get to know the areas where you plan to use your chair. Look for hazards and
learn how to avoid them.
2.3 Avoid a hard shock such as striking a curb. If this does occur, the vehicle
should be stopped and inspected for damage. Any damage should be repaired
before restarting and operating the equipment.

3.0 REACHING OR LEANING

If you reach or lean, it will affect the center of balance of your chair. This may cause
you to fall or tip over. When in doubt, ask for help or use a device to extend your
reach.
3.1 NEVER reach or lean if you must shift your weight sideways or rise up off the
seat.
3.2 NEVER reach or lean if you must move forward in your seat to do so. Always
keep your buttocks in contact with the backrest.
3.3 NEVER reach with both hands (you may not be able to catch yourself to prevent
a fall if the chair tips.)

4.0 CENTER OF BALANCE

The point where this chair will tip forward, back or to the side depends on its center of
balance and stability. How your chair is set up, the options you select and the
changes you make may affect the risk of a fall or tip over.
