SAFETY

WARNING! Do not operate your new power chair for the first time without completely reading and
understanding this owner’s manual.
Your power chair 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 power chair user. Please be aware that the final
selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of power chair to be used is the responsibility of the power
chair 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 power
chair to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorized Pride provider in the
instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the power chair user will need to practice
operating the power 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 power chair user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your power 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 elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the user become accustomed to
operating the power chair safely.
Modifications
Pride has designed and engineered your power chair to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of
accessories is available from your authorized Pride provider to further customize your power chair 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 power chair.
WARNING! Do not modify your power chair in any way not authorized by Pride. Unauthorized modi-
fications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your power chair.
Pre-Ride Safety Check
Get to know the feel of your power chair and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check
before each use to make sure your power chair operates smoothly and safely. See X. “Care and Maintenance.”
Perform the following inspections prior to using your power chair:
n Check for proper tire inflation. Maintain 30-35 psi in each tire (if equipped with pneumatic tires).
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
n Check all controller connections to the electronics tray. Make sure they are secured properly.
