The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the Go-
Chair to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorised Pride Provider in
the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the Go-Chair user will need to practice
operating the Go-Chair 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 Go-Chair user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your Go-Chair 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 maneuver
through doorways, on and off of 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 oper-
ating your Go-Chair safely.
Pre-Ride Safety Check
Get to know the feel of your Go-Chair and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check
before each use to make sure your Go-Chair operates smoothly and safely.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your Go-Chair:
Check for proper tyre inflation. Maintain but do not exceed the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on
each tyre if equipped with pneumatic tyres.
Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
Check all controller connections to the power base. Make sure they are secured properly.
Check the brakes. See VII. "Care and Maintenance."
Check battery charge. See VI. "Batteries and Charging."
Ensure the manual freewheel levers are in drive mode before sitting on the travel chair.
NOTE: If you discover a problem, contact your authorised Pride Provider for assistance.
