4.1 THE CENTER OF BALANCE IS AFFECTED BY:
a. A change in the seat height of your chair by adding a seat cushion.
b. Changes in your body position, posture or weight distribution.
c. Driving your chair on a ramp or slope.
d. The use of a back cushion insert, or the amount or location of added weight.
4.2 TO REDUCE THE RISK OF AN ACCIDENT:
a. Consult your doctor, nurse, therapist or your authorized supplier BEFORE
you modify or adjust this chair. You may need to make other changes to
correct the center of balance.
b. Use the anti-tip wheels that were supplied with your chair.
5.0 ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
5.1 Contact with water or excess moisture may cause your chair to rust, corrode or
cause your joystick control not to function.
5.2 Do not store or use your chair in a hot or cold environment (Below 35º F or
above 110º F).
It is dangerous to transfer on your own. It requires good balance and agility.
To Avoid A Fall:
6.1 Work with your health care professional to learn safe methods of transfer.
a. Learn how to position and support yourself during a transfer.
b. Until you know how to do a safe transfer on your own, get help.
6.2 Before you transfer, turn the power off on your joystick. This locks the brakes
and keeps the rear wheels from rolling. However, this will not keep your chair
from sliding away from you or tipping.
6.3 Move your chair as close as you can to the bed or seat and use a transfer board.
6.4 Move or swing footrests out of the way. Make sure your feet do not catch in the
space between the footrests.
