GENERAL GUIDELINES
MANDATORY! 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 Quantum Rehab Dealer 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 manoeuvre 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 operating your
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 Quantum Rehab Dealer to further customise 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 authorised by Pride. Do not use
accessories if they have not been tested or approved for Pride products.
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.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your power chair:
Check for proper tyre inflation. Maintain but do not exceed the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating in 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.”
NOTE: If you discover a problem, contact your Quantum Rehab Dealer for assistance.

Weight Limitations
Your power chair is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Please refer to the specifications table for this limit.
WARNING! Stay within the specified weight capacity of your power chair. Exceeding the weight
capacity voids your warranty. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or property damage
resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your power chair. Carrying passengers on your power
chair may affect the centre of gravity, resulting in a tip or a fall.
Tyre Inflation
If your power chair is equipped with pneumatic tyres, you should check or have the air pressure checked regularly. Proper
inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tyres and help ensure the smooth operation of your power chair.
WARNING! It is important that the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on the tyre be maintained
in pneumatic tyres at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tyres. Low pressure may
result in loss of control, and overinflated tyres may burst. Failure to maintain the psi/bar/kPa air
pressure rating indicated on the tyres at all times may result in tyre and/or wheel failure.
WARNING! Inflate your power chair drive tyres from a regulated air source with an available
pressure gauge. Inflating your tyres from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting
in a burst tyre.
NOTE: If the tyres on your power chair list the psi rating only, use the following conversion formulas to find
the bar or kPa rating: bar = psi x 0.06895; kPa = psi x 6.89476.
Incline Information
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access. Some ramps
may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on your power chair.
Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
Take wide swings with your power chair’s front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that, the power chair’s rear
wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short and not bump into or get hung up on any railing corners.
When driving down a ramp, keep the power chair’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure a
safely controlled descent.
Avoid sudden stops and starts.
When climbing an incline, try to keep your power chair moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly and then accelerate
cautiously. When driving down an incline, set your power chair to the slowest speed setting and drive in the forward
direction only. If your power chair starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired, allow it to come
to a complete stop by releasing the joystick, then push the joystick forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the power chair in
freewheel mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of
the incline. Drive your power chair straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the
possibility of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas
covered with snow, ice, cut grass or wet leaves).
WARNING! Never travel down an incline rearward. Doing so may cause the power
chair to tip. Always exercise caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! If your power chair is equipped with a reclining seatback, do not attempt
to negotiate inclines with the seat in a reclined position. Do not attempt to negotiate
obstacles with the seat in a reclined position unless an attendant is present to help
stabilise the chair. Failure to heed may result in the power chair tipping over.

WARNING! Even though your power chair is capable of climbing slopes greater than those illustrated
in figure 1, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or any other
specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause instability in your power chair.
Pride recommends that the maximum slope of an incline you attempt to safely ascend or descend on your power chair does
not exceed 8.7 % (5°). See figure 1.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than 8.7 % (5°) may put your power
chair in an unstable position and cause it to tip.
8.7% (5 )
Figure 1. Maximum Safe Slope (Ascending and Descending)
Freewheel Mode
Your power chair is equipped with two manual freewheel levers to allow for manual manoeuvrability by a trained attendant.
For more information about how to place your power chair into and out of freewheel mode, see III. “Your Power Chair.”
WARNING! Do not use your power chair in freewheel mode without an attendant present.
WARNING! Do not attempt to personally place your power chair in freewheel mode
while seated on it. Ask an attendant for assistance if necessary.
WARNING! Do not place your power chair in freewheel mode while on an incline or
decline. This could cause the chair to roll uncontrollably on its own.
Braking Information
Your power chair is equipped with two powerful brake systems:
Regenerative — uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the joystick returns to the centre/stop position.
Disc Park Brake — activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or when power is
removed from the system for any reason.
Cornering Information
While your power chair is equipped with front and rear castor wheels, excessively high cornering speeds can still create the
possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of tipping include, but are not limited to: cornering speed, steering
angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an
area of high traction (such as passing from a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speeds while turning) and
abrupt directional changes. High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner,
reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your power chair from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable centre of gravity.
This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall.
Public Streets and Roadways
WARNING! You should not operate your power chair on public streets and roadways. Be aware
that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your power chair. Obey all
local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then proceed with
extreme caution.

Outdoor Driving Surfaces
Your power chair is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces composed
of concrete, blacktop or tarmac. However, Pride recognises that there will be times when you will encounter other surface
types. For this reason, your power chair is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass and gravel. Feel free to use
your power chair safely on lawns and in park areas.
Reduce your power chair’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
Avoid tall grass that can entangle the running gear.
Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
Inclement Weather Precautions
Exposure of your power chair to inclement weather conditions should be avoided whenever possible. If suddenly caught
up in rain, snow, severe cold or heat while operating your power chair, proceed to shelter at the earliest opportunity.
Thoroughly dry your power chair before storing, charging or operating your power chair.
PROHIBITED! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions and on icy/slippery surfaces can
have an adverse affect on the electrical system. Maintain and store your power chair in a dry and
clean condition.
WARNING! Prolonged exposure to hot or cold conditions may affect the temperature of upholstered
and non-upholstered items on the power chair, possibly resulting in skin irritation. Exercise caution
when using your power chair in extremely hot or cold conditions or when exposing your power
chair to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
Stationary Obstacles (Steps, Kerbs, etc.)
Proceed with extreme caution when driving near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges and/or drop-offs (kerbs, porches, stairs, etc.).
To navigate up over a kerb or stationary obstacle:
1. Approach the kerb or obstacle slowly, and make sure the power chair is traveling perpendicular to the obstacle. See figure 2.
2. Increase the forward speed just before the front wheels (or kerb climbing mechanism) come in contact with the obstacle.
3. Reduce the forward speed only after the rear wheels have cleared the obstacle.
To navigate down a kerb or stationary obstacle:
1. Approach the kerb or obstacle slowly, and make sure the power chair is traveling perpendicular to the obstacle. See figure 2.
2. Reduce the forward speed just before the front wheels come in contact with the obstacle.
3. Increase the forward speed only after the rear wheels have cleared the obstacle and you are once again on a level surface.

WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair climb or descend an obstacle that is higher
than 5 cm (2 in.) unless you have the assistance of an attendant.
WARNING! If your power chair is equipped with a kerb climber, do not attempt to climb any kerb
in excess of 5 cm (2 in.) in height. Do not approach kerbs at an angle; instead approach any kerb
you intend to ascend or descend in the forward position.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair proceed rearward down any step, kerb or
other obstacle. This may cause the power chair to tip.
Doors
Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
Drive your power chair gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your power chair gently and slowly
rearward to pull the door open.
Lifts
Modern lifts have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the lift door(s).
If you are in the doorway of a lift when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or allow the rubber
door edge to contact the power chair and the door will reopen.
Use care that handbags, packages or power chair accessories do not become caught in lift doors.
Lift/Elevation Products
If you will be traveling with your power chair, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications and safety information set forth by the
manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
WARNING! Never sit on your power chair when it is being used in connection with any
type of lift/elevation product. Your power chair was not designed with such use in
mind and any damage or injury incurred from such use is not the responsibility of Pride.
Motor Vehicle Transport
Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your power chair while traveling in a motor vehicle. The power chair
should be stowed in the boot of a car or in the back of a truck or van with the batteries removed and properly secured. In
addition, all removable power chair parts, including the armrests, seat, front riggings, controller and shrouds should be
removed and/or properly secured during motor vehicle transport. If your power chair is equipped with a transit securement
system, refer to IV. "Assembly" and the supplement provided with your power chair for additional information regarding
power chair transport in a motor vehicle.
WARNING! Pride does not recommend using the power chair as a seat in a motor vehicle. The
power chair user should transfer into the vehicle seat and use the vehicle-installed belt restraint
system if and whenever feasible. If your power chair is equipped with a manufacturer-installed
transit securement system, please refer to the supplemental safety information provided with
your power chair.
WARNING! Ensure power chairs equipped with a transit securement system are properly secured
to the motor vehicle during transport. Power chairs that are not properly secured can become a
hazard to the user and to other vehicle passengers in the event of a crash, sudden stopping or
swerving, as the power chair could tip or slide out of place.
WARNING! Always be sure your power chair and its batteries are properly secured when it is being
transported. Batteries should be secured in an upright position and protective caps should be
installed on the battery terminals. Batteries should not be transported with any flammable or
combustible items.

Stairs and Escalators
Power chairs are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use a lift.
WARNING! Never use your power chair to negotiate steps or escalators.
Positioning Belts
Your Quantum Rehab Dealer, therapist(s) and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining your requirement
for a positioning belt in order to operate your power chair safely. The positioning belt is not designed for use as a restraining
device in a motor vehicle. You should be properly belted into seats approved by the vehicle manufacturer with your power
chair properly stowed for vehicle transport or secured using an optional transit securement system.
Positioning belts should be installed as detailed in this manual. See V. “Comfort Adjustments.” Once installed, the belt
should be placed across the pelvis as determined by your healthcare provider. Anchor points of the positioning belts should
be located so that a projected side-view angle of the pelvis is between 45°-75° of horizontal depending on the user’s
weight, posture and seat cushion thickness.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your power chair, make sure it is
fastened securely in order to reduce the possibility of a fall from the power chair.
WARNING! The positioning belt is not designed for use as a seat belt in a motor vehicle. Nor is
your power chair suitable for use as a seat in any vehicle. Anyone traveling in a vehicle should be
properly belted into seats approved by the vehicle manufacturer. If your power chair is equipped
with a manufacturer-installed transit securement system, please refer to the supplemental safety
information provided with your power chair.
Batteries
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information. For more
information about your power chair’s batteries, see VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Power chair batteries are heavy. See specifications table. If you are unable
to lift that much weight, be sure to get help. Use proper lifting techniques and avoid
lifting beyond your capacity.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery.
Charging a frozen battery may result in damage to the battery.
WARNING! Connect your battery harnesses in the proper manner. RED (+) cables must
be connected to positive (+) battery terminals/posts. BLACK (-) cables must be
connected to negative (-) battery terminals/posts. Protective caps should be installed
over all battery terminals. REPLACE cables immediately if damaged.
Removable Parts
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move a power chair by any of its removable parts, including the
armrests, seat, front riggings, controller and shrouds.
Preventing Unintended Movement
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period of time,
turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent joystick contact. This
will also eliminate the possibility of unintended chair movement from electromagnetic (EM) sources.

Transfers
Transferring onto and off of your power chair requires a good sense
of balance. Always have an attendant or healthcare professional
present while learning to properly transfer yourself.
To eliminate the possibility of injury, Pride recommends that you or
a trained attendant perform the following tasks before attempting a
transfer:
Turn off the power to the controller.
Ensure your power chair is not in freewheel mode. See III.
“Your Power Chair.”
Turn the castor wheels toward the transfer destination to improve power chair stability during transfer.
Make sure both armrests are flipped up or removed from your
power chair.
Flip up the foot platform or move the leg rests aside; this will
help to keep your feet from getting caught on the front rigging
during the transfer.
Reduce the distance between your power chair and the object you are transferring onto.
Figure 4. Ideal Transfer Position
WARNING! Before transferring, position yourself as far back as possible in the power chair seat
to prevent the power chair from tipping forward during transfer.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the power chair armrests and do not use the armrests
for weight bearing purposes, such as transfers. Such use may cause the power chair to tip, resulting
in a fall from the power chair.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the front riggings. Such use may cause the power
chair to tip.
User Positioning
Pride recommends that all users be seated in an upright position with their pelvis positioned as far rearward as possible in the
power chair seat. All users need to discuss pelvic positioning with their Quantum Rehab Dealer, therapist(s) or healthcare
professional to determine appropriate pelvic position when seated on the power chair based on the user’s individual medical needs.
Reaching and Bending
Never reach, lean or bend while driving your power chair. If it is absolutely necessary to reach, lean or bend while seated
on your power chair, it is important to maintain a stable centre of gravity and keep the power chair from tipping. Pride
recommends that the power chair user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and reaching in the
presence of a qualified healthcare professional.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the
floor by reaching down between your knees or if you have to reach over the back of
the seat. Movements such as these may change your centre of gravity and the weight
distribution of the power chair, possibly causing your power chair to tip.
WARNING! Keep your hands away from the tyres when driving. Be aware that loose
fitting clothing can become caught in drive tyres.

smoking. You must adhere to the following safety guidelines if you decide to smoke cigarettes
while seated in your power chair.
Do not leave lit cigarettes unattended.
Keep ashtrays a safe distance from the seat cushions.
Always make sure cigarettes are completely extinguished before disposal.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI)
WARNING! Laboratory tests have shown that electromagnetic and radio frequency waves can
have an adverse affect on the performance of electrically-powered mobility vehicles.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from sources such as cellular phones, mobile two-way
radios (such as walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links,
microwave signals, paging transmitters and medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency vehicles. In some cases,
these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control system. Every electrically-powered mobility vehicle
has an immunity (or resistance) to EMI. The higher the immunity level, the greater the protection against EMI. This product
has been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/m.
WARNING! Be aware that cell phones, two-way radios, laptops and other types of radio transmitters
may cause unintended movement of your electrically-powered mobility vehicle due to EMI.
Exercise caution when using any of these items while operating your mobility vehicle and avoid
coming into close proximity of radio and TV stations.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered mobility vehicle
can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify your power chair in any way
not authorised by Pride.
WARNING! The electrically-powered mobility vehicle itself can disturb the performance of other
electrical devices located nearby, such as alarm systems.
NOTE: For further information on EMI/RFI, go to the Resource Center on www.pridemobility.com. If
unintended motion or brake release occurs, turn your power chair off as soon as it is safe to do so. Contact
your Quantum Rehab Dealer to report the incident.

Dual Manual Freewheel Levers
For your convenience, your power chair is equipped with dual manual freewheel levers. The levers are located on each
motor, and allow you to disengage the drive motors and manoeuvre the chair manually.
WARNING! Do not use the power chair while the drive motors are disengaged! Do not
disengage the drive motors when the power chair is on an incline or decline, as the
unit could roll on its own! Only engage the freewheel mode when on a level surface.
WARNING! It is important to remember that when your power chair is in freewheel
mode, the braking system is disengaged.
To operate the dual manual freewheel levers:
1. Pull up both manual freewheel levers to engage the drive motors (drive mode). See figure 8.
2. Push down both manual freewheel levers to disengage the drive motors (freewheel mode). See figure 9.
NOTE: You must turn off the power before disengaging the drive motors, otherwise you may get an error
code on the controller. To clear this code, turn off the controller and place the power chair in drive mode.
Then, turn on the controller. The error message should be cleared. If it isn’t, contact your Quantum Rehab
Dealer.
NOTE: The power chair will be significantly easier to push with the power off.
WARNING! Avoid applying excessive force to the manual freewheel levers.

BATTERIES AND CHARGING
Your power chair uses two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries. These batteries are sealed and maintenance free.
Since they are sealed, there is no need to check the electrolyte (fluid) level. Deep-cycle batteries are designed to handle a
longer and deeper discharge. Though they are similar in appearance to automotive batteries, they are not interchangeable.
Automotive batteries are not designed to handle a long, deep discharge, and also are unsafe for use in power chairs.
WARNING! Contact your Quantum Rehab Dealer if you have any questions regarding
the batteries in your power chair.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and wash hands after
handling.
WARNING! Always use two batteries of the exact same type, chemistry and amp-hour
(Ah) capacity. Refer to specifications table in this manual and in the manual supplied
with the battery charger for recommended type and capacities.
Charging the Batteries
The battery charger is essential in providing long life for your power chair batteries. It is designed to optimise your power
chair’s performance by charging the batteries safely, quickly and easily.
PROHIBITED! Removal of grounding prong can create electrical hazard. If necessary,
properly install an approved 3-pronged adapter to an electrical outlet having 2-pronged
plug access.
PROHIBITED! Never use an extension lead to plug in your battery charger. Plug the
charger directly into a properly wired standard electrical outlet.
PROHIBITED! Do not allow unsupervised children to play near the power chair while
the batteries are charging. Pride recommends that you do not charge the batteries
while the power chair is occupied.
MANDATORY! Read the battery charging instructions in this manual and in the manual
supplied with the battery charger before charging the batteries.
WARNING! Explosive gases may be generated while charging the batteries. Keep the
power chair and battery charger away from sources of ignition such as flames or
sparks and provide adequate ventilation when charging the batteries.
WARNING! You must recharge your power chair’s batteries with the supplied off-board
battery charger. Do not use an automotive-type battery charger.
WARNING! Inspect the battery charger, wiring and connectors for damage before each
use. Contact your Quantum Rehab Dealer if damage is found.
WARNING! Do not attempt to open the battery charger case. If the battery charger
does not appear to be working correctly, contact your Quantum Rehab Dealer.
WARNING! If the battery charger is equipped with cooling slots, then do not attempt
to insert objects through these slots.
WARNING! If the battery charger has not been tested and approved for outdoor use,
then do not expose it to adverse or extreme weather conditions. If the battery charger
is exposed to adverse or extreme weather conditions, then it must be allowed to adjust
to the difference in environmental conditions before use indoors. Refer to the manual
supplied with the battery charger for more information.

To charge the batteries using the off-board charger:
1. Position your power chair next to a standard electrical
outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off and the
power chair is in drive mode.
3. Plug the off-board charger into the off-board charger/
programming socket on the controller. See figure 26.
4. Plug the off-board charger into the electrical outlet.
NOTE: If it is a Pride off-board charger, then there
are two lights in it. The red light indicates that power
to the off-board charger is on. The green light indicates that the batteries are fully charged. If it is not a
Pride off-board charger, then follow the instructions
supplied by the manufacturer.
5. When the batteries are fully charged, unplug the offboard charger from the electrical outlet and then from
the controller.
Figure 26. Battery Charging
Battery Break-in
To break in new batteries for maximum efficiency:
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This brings the battery up to about 90% of its peak
performance level.
2. Operate your power chair throughout the house and grounds. Move slowly at first, and do not travel too far until you
become accustomed to the controls and break in the batteries.
3. Give the batteries another full charge of 8 to 14 hours and operate your power chair again. The batteries will now
perform at over 90% of their potential.
4. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries will top off at 100% charge and last for an extended period.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How does the charger work?
The battery charger takes the standard electrical outlet voltage (alternating current) and converts it to 24 VDC (direct
current). The power chair batteries use direct current to run your power chair. When the battery voltage is low, the charger
works harder to charge the battery. As the battery voltage approaches full charge, the charger does not work as hard to
complete the charging cycle. When the battery is fully charged, the amperage from the charger is nearly at zero. This is how
the charger maintains a charge but does not overcharge the battery.
Can I use a different battery charger?
You should use the charger supplied with the power chair. It is the safest, most efficient tool to charge the batteries. We do
not recommend using other types of chargers (e.g., an automotive battery charger).
NOTE: Your power chair’s charger will not operate after the batteries have been discharged to nearly zero
voltage. If this happens, call your Quantum Rehab Dealer for assistance.

How often must I charge the batteries?
Many factors come into play when deciding how often to charge the batteries. You may use your power chair all day on a
daily basis or you may not use it for weeks at a time.
Daily Use
If you use your power chair on a daily basis, charge the batteries as soon as you are finished using your power chair.
Your power chair will be ready each morning to give you a full day’s service. It is recommended that you charge the
batteries 8 to 14 hours after daily use.
Infrequent Use
If you use your power chair infrequently (once a week or less), you should charge the batteries at least once per week
for 12 to 14 hours.
NOTE: Keep your batteries fully charged and avoid deeply discharging your batteries. Do not charge the
batteries for more than 24 hours at a charging cycle.
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely do you have an ideal driving situation such as smooth, flat, hard terrain with no wind, hills or curves. More often
you are presented with hills, pavement cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves and wind. All of these
factors will affect the distance or running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining the maximum range per charge:
Always charge the batteries fully prior to your trip.
Plan your trip in advance to avoid inclines if possible.
Limit baggage weight to essential items.
Try to maintain an even speed and avoid stop-and-go driving.
What type of batteries should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM and Gel-Cell are deep-cycle
batteries that are similar in performance. Refer to the Specifications Table for more information regarding the batteries used
with your power chair.
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell
batteries to reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.
Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a much different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium (nicads)
or in other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain down their
charge and then accept a relatively quick recharge. AGM and Gel-Cell batteries should be charged as often as possible.
They do not have a “memory” like nickel-cadmium batteries.
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide a battery that best suits your power chair’s specific demands.
Fresh batteries arrive regularly at Pride and are promptly shipped with a full charge. During shipping, the batteries encounter temperature extremes that may influence initial performance. Heat robs the charge from the battery, and cold slows the
power available and extends the time needed to recharge the battery (just as with a car battery).

importantly, it will take a few “charging cycles” (a partial drain— then a full recharge) to establish the critical chemical
balance that is essential to the battery’s peak performance and long life. It will be well worth it to take the time to break in
your battery properly.
NOTE: The useful life of a battery is quite often a reflection of the care it receives.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
A fully charged deep-cycle battery will provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your power chair’s
batteries fully charged whenever possible. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged or
stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable power chair operation and limited battery life.
How should I store my power chair and its batteries?
If you do not use your power chair regularly, we recommend maintaining battery vitality by charging the batteries at least
once per week.
If you do not plan on using your power chair for an extended period, fully charge the batteries prior to storage. Disconnect
the battery harnesses and store the power chair in a warm, dry environment. Avoid temperature extremes, such as freezing
and excessively hot conditions, and never attempt to charge a frozen battery. A cold or frozen battery should be warmed
for several days prior to recharging.
What about public transportation?
AGM and Gel-Cell batteries are designed for application in power chairs and other mobility vehicles. These batteries are
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved, allowing safe transportation on aircraft, buses and trains, as there is no
danger of spillage or leakage. We suggest you contact the carrier’s ticket counter in advance to determine that carrier’s
specific requirements.
What about shipping?
If you wish to use a freight company to ship your power chair to your final destination, repack your power chair in the
original shipping container and ship the batteries in separate boxes.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Quantum 6000 is a sophisticated power chair. Like any motorised vehicle, it requires routine maintenance checks.
You can perform some of these checks, but others require assistance from your Quantum Rehab Dealer. Preventive
maintenance is very important. If you follow the maintenance checks in this section as scheduled, you can help ensure that
your power chair gives you years of trouble-free operation. If you have any doubt as to your power chair’s care or
operation, contact your Quantum Rehab Dealer.
WARNING! Do not service the power chair when the seat is occupied.
Your power chair, like most electrical equipment, is susceptible to damage from the elements. Avoid damp areas of any kind.
WARNING! Direct or prolonged exposure to water or dampness could cause the power
chair to malfunction electronically and mechanically. Water can cause electrical
components to corrode and the chair's frame to rust. Power chairs should be examined
periodically for signs of corrosion caused by water exposure, bodily fluid exposure or
incontinence. Damaged components should be replaced or treated immediately.
Should your power chair come in contact with water:
1. Dry your power chair as thoroughly as possible with a towel.
2. Allow your power chair to sit in a warm, dry place for 12 hours to allow unseen water to evaporate.
3. Check the joystick operation and the brakes before using your power chair again.
4. If any inconsistencies are found, take your power chair to a Quantum Rehab Dealer. Power chairs that are frequently
exposed to sources of water, such as incontinence, should be inspected often for corrosion and electronic components
may need to be replaced frequently.
Temperature
Some of the parts of your power chair are susceptible to extreme changes in temperature. Always keep your power
chair between the temperatures of -8°C/18° F and 50°C/122° F.
In extremely cold temperatures the batteries may freeze. The specific temperature at which they freeze depends on a
number of factors, such as battery charge, usage and composition of the batteries (e.g., AGM or Gel-Cell).
Temperatures above 50°C/122° F may cause your power chair to operate at a reduced speed. This reduced speed is
a safety feature built into the controller that helps prevent damage to the motor and other electrical components.
General Guidelines
Avoid knocking or bumping the controller, especially the joystick.
Avoid prolonged exposure of your power chair to extreme conditions, such as heat, cold or moisture.
Keep the controller clean.
Check all connectors to ensure that they are all tight and secured properly.
Make sure pneumatic drive tyres are inflated to the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on each tyre.
WARNING! Make sure your tyres are inflated to the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on the
tyre. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tyres. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and
overinflated tyres may burst. Overinflating tyres can cause them to explode.
WARNING! Do not use a high pressure hose to inflate your tyres.
Use a rubber conditioner on the tyre sidewalls to help preserve them.
WARNING! Never use a rubber conditioner on the tread area of the tyres; doing so may make the
tyres slippery and cause your power chair to skid.

All wheel bearings are prelubricated and sealed. They require no subsequent lubrication.
The body shroud has been sprayed with a clear sealant coating. You can apply a light coat of car wax to help it retain
its high-gloss appearance.
Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and are not corroded. Batteries must sit flat within the battery
tray, with the battery terminals facing inward, toward each other. Refer to the battery wiring label for the correct wiring
layout.
WARNING! Even though the power chair has passed the necessary testing requirements
for ingress of liquids, you should keep electrical connections away from sources of
dampness, including direct exposure to water or bodily fluids and incontinence. Check
electrical components frequently for signs of corrosion and replace as necessary.
Daily Checks
With the controller turned off, check the joystick. Make sure it is not bent or damaged and that it returns to the neutral
position when you release it. Check the rubber boot around the base of the joystick for damage. Visually inspect the
boot. Do not handle or try to repair it. See your Quantum Rehab Dealer if there is a problem.
Visually inspect the controller cable. Make sure that it is not frayed, cut or has any wires exposed. See your Quantum
Rehab Dealer if there is a problem.
Check for flat spots on solid tyres. Flat spots could adversely affect stability.
Inspect the armrests for loose hardware, stress points or damage. See your Quantum Rehab Dealer if there is a problem.
Weekly Checks
Disconnect and inspect the controller from the power base. Look for corrosion. Contact your Quantum Rehab Dealer
if necessary.
Ensure that all parts of the controller system are securely fastened to your power chair. Do not overtighten any screws.
Check for proper tyre inflation. Pneumatic tyres should be inflated to the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on
the tyre. If a tyre does not hold air, see your Quantum Rehab Dealer for replacement of the tube.
Calibrate the joystick if a noticeable difference in performance is detected or if the joystick does not operate properly.
To calibrate the joystick, power off the unit, place the joystick in the neutral position and power the unit back on. If a
problem still exists with your joystick’s performance, contact your Quantum Rehab Dealer.
Check the brakes. This test should be carried out on a level surface with at least 1 metre (3 ft.) of clearance around
your power chair.
To check the brakes:
1. Turn on the controller and turn down the speed level of your power chair.
2. After one second, check the battery condition meter. Make sure that it remains on.
3. Slowly push the joystick forward until you hear the electric brakes click. Immediately release the joystick. You must be
able to hear each electrical brake operating within a few seconds of joystick movement. Repeat this test three times,
pushing the joystick rearwards, then left and then right.
Monthly Checks
Check for drive tyre wear. See your Quantum Rehab Dealer for repair.
Check the castor wheels for wear. Replace them as necessary.
Check the castor forks for damage or fluttering which indicates that they may need to be adjusted or have the bearings
replaced. See your Quantum Rehab Dealer for repair.
Keep your power chair clean and free of foreign material, such as mud, dirt, hair, food, drink, etc.

Yearly Checks
Take your power chair to your Quantum Rehab Dealer for yearly maintenance, especially if you use your power chair on
a daily basis. This helps ensure that your power chair is functioning properly and helps prevent future complications.
Storage
Your power chair should be stored in a dry place, free from temperature extremes. When storing, disconnect the batteries
from the power chair. See VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
WARNING! If you fail to store the unit properly, the frame can rust and the electronics can be
damaged.
Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, stored in extreme temperatures or stored without
a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited service life. It is recommended that
you charge the batteries periodically throughout periods of prolonged storage to ensure proper performance.
You may wish to place several boards under the frame of your power chair to raise it off of the ground during periods of
prolonged storage. This takes the weight off the tyres and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the areas of the
tyres contacting the ground.
Disposal of Your Power Chair
Your power chair must be disposed of according to applicable local and national statutory regulations. Contact your local
waste disposal agency or Quantum Rehab Dealer for information on proper disposal of power chair packaging, metal
frame components, plastic components, electronics and batteries.
Cleaning and Disinfection
Use a damp cloth and mild, non-abrasive cleanser to clean the plastic and metal parts of your power chair. Avoid using
products that may scratch the surface of your power chair.
If necessary, clean your product with an approved disinfectant. Make sure the disinfectant is safe for use on your
product before application.
WARNING! Follow all safety instructions for the proper use of the disinfectant and/or cleaning
agent before applying it to your product. Failure to comply may result in skin irritation or premature
deterioration of upholstery and/or power chair finishes.
WARNING! Never hose off your power chair or place it in direct contact with water. Your power
chair has a painted, ABS plastic body shroud that allows it to be easily wiped clean with a damp
cloth.
WARNING! Never use any chemicals to clean a vinyl seat, as they may cause the seat to become
slippery or dry out and crack. Use soapy water and dry the seat thoroughly.
Wheel Replacement
If you have pneumatic tyres and you have a flat tyre, you can replace the tube. If your chair is equipped with a solid tyre
insert, then you must replace the entire wheel assembly. Replacement tyres, tubes and wheel assemblies are readily available through your Quantum Rehab Dealer.
WARNING! The wheels on your power chair should only be serviced or replaced by a Quantum
Rehab Dealer or a qualified technician.
WARNING! Be sure that the controller’s power is turned off and the power chair is not in freewheel
mode before performing this procedure.
