IV. NOTICE– READ BEFORE USE
A. CHOOSE THE RIGHT CHAIR & SAFETY
OPTIONS
D. WARNINGS
The word “WARNING” refers to a hazard or unsafe practice that
may cause severe injury or death to you or to other persons. The
“Warnings” are in four main sections, as follows:
Sunrise provides a choice of many power wheelchair styles, sizes and
adjustments to meet the needs of the user. However, final selection
of a wheelchair rests solely with you and your health care professional. Choosing the best chair for you depends on such things as:
1. V — EMI
Here you will learn about electromagnetic interference and
how it can affect your chair.
1. Your size, disability, strength, balance and coordination.
2. Your intended use, and your level of activity.
3. The types of hazards you must overcome in daily use (in
areas where you are likely to use your chair).
4. The need for options for your safety and comfort (such as
positioning belts or special seat systems).
INTENDED USE: The Quickie QM-7 Series Wheelchair is a battery operated device with wheels that is intended for medical purposes to provide mobility to persons restricted to a sitting position.
2. VI — GENERAL WARNINGS
Here you will find a safety checklist and a summary of risks
you need to be aware of before you ride this chair.
3. VII — WARNINGS — COMPONENTS & OPTIONS
Here you will learn about your chair. Consult your supplier
and your health care professional to help you choose the
best set-up and options for your safety.
4. X — BATTERIES
Here you will learn about battery and charger safety, and
how to avoid injury.
Throughout this owner’s manual and on the wheelchair you will
see the icons listed below to identify warnings and potential hazards.
B. ADJUST CHAIR TO YOUR ABILITY
You need to work with your doctor, nurse or therapist, and your
supplier, to fit this chair and adjust the controller settings for your
level of function and ability.
WARNING!
C. REVIEW THIS MANUAL OFTEN
Before using this chair you, and each person who may assist you,
should read this entire Manual and make sure to follow all instructions. Review the warnings often, until they are second nature to you.
ESD:
These warnings must be followed, failure to
do so may cause personal injury or may damage the wheelchair.
Electrostatic Discharge can damage printed
circuit boards.
V. EMI (ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE)
B. WHAT EFFECT CAN EMI HAVE?
WARNING
WARNING
Heed all warnings to reduce the risk of unintended brake release
or chair movement:
1. Beware of the danger from hand-held transceivers. Never
turn on or use a hand-held transceiver while power to your
chair is on. Use extra care if you believe that such a device
may be in use near your chair.
2. Be aware of nearby radio or TV stations, and avoid coming
close to them.
3. If unintended movement occurs, turn your chair off as soon
as it is safe to do so.
1. EMI can cause your chair, without warning, to:
• Release its brakes
• Move by itself
• Move in unintended directions
If any of these occur, it could result in severe injury to you
or others.
2. EMI can damage the control system of your chair. This could
create a safety hazard, and lead to costly repairs.
C. SOURCES OF EMI
A. WHAT IS EMI?
WARNING
The sources of EMI fall into three broad types:
WARNING
1. EMI means: electromagnetic (EM) interference (I). EMI comes
from radio wave sources such as radio transmitters and
transceivers. (A “transceiver” is a device that both sends and
receives radio wave signals).
2. There are a number of sources of intense EMI in your daily
environment. Some of these are obvious and easy to avoid.
Others are not, and you may not be able to avoid them.
3. Powered wheelchairs may be susceptible to electromagnetic
interference (EMI) emitted from sources such as radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two
way radios, and cellular phones.
4. EMI can also be produced by conducted sources or electrostatic discharge (ESD).
1. Hand-Held Transceivers:
The antenna is usually mounted directly on the unit. These include:
• Citizens band (CB) radios
• “Walkie-talkies”
• Security, fire and police radios
• Mobile phones
• Lap-top computers with phone or fax
• Other personal communication devices
• Electronic article surveillance systems
NOTE– These devices can transmit signals while they are on, even if not in
use.

Q M- 710/715HD/ 720
2.
V. EMI (ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE)
F. REPORT ALL SUSPECTED EMI
INCIDENTS
Medium-Range Mobile Transceivers:
These include two-way radios used in police cars, fire trucks,
ambulances and taxi cabs. The antenna is usually mounted on the
outside of the vehicle.
WARNING
You should promptly report any unintended movement or brake
release. Be sure to indicate whether there was a radio wave source
near your chair at the time. Contact:
3. Long-Range Transceivers:
These include commercial radio and TV broadcast antenna towers
and amateur (HAM) radios.
Sunrise Medical, Customer Service Department at (800) 333-4000.
NOTE– The following are not likely to cause EMI problems: Laptop computers (without phone or fax), Cordless phones, TV sets
or AM/FM radios, CD or tape players.
G. EMI FROM CHAIR
WARNING
D. DISTANCE FROM THE SOURCE
The chair itself can disturb the performance of electromagnetic
fields such as emitted by alarm systems of shops.
WARNING
Electro-magnetic energy rapidly becomes more intense as you get
closer to the source. For this reason, EMI from hand-held devices
is of special concern. (See C.1 above) A person using one of these
devices can bring high levels of EM energy very close to your chair
without you knowing it.
H. HEAD ARRAY SAFETY AND RFI
WARNING
If you have a Head-array, the sensors used in the product have the
potential to operate unintentionally if moisture or any substance
that is electrically conductive is present in sufficient quantities.
E. IMMUNITY LEVEL
Electro magnetic interference from electrical power lines and certain types of phones can cause the sensors to activate.
WARNING
1. The level of EM is measured in volts per meter (V/m). Every
power wheelchair can resist EMI up to a certain level. This is
called its “immunity level”.
2. The higher the immunity level, the less the risk of EMI. It is
believed that a 20 V/m immunity level will protect the power
wheelchair user from the more common sources of radio
waves.
3. The configuration tested and found to be immune to at least
20 V/m is: Quickie QM-710 power wheelchair with a righthand mounted RNET remote joystick system, 18" seat width,
18" seat depth, dual post height adjustable armrests, fixed
tapered legrests with one piece solid footplate, and Gp 24
gel cell batteries.
4. All After Market input device options, classified as breath controls, Proportional controls, and/or Switched controls that can
be used with this powerchair, have an unknown effect on their
immunity level to different types of EMI. They have not been
specifically tested with the QM-710/715HD/720 and RNET
control system:
These sensors are capacitive in nature, and can generate an electronic field, which can be affected by liquids and/or a source of
radio frequency Interferance (RFI). Any material that is conductive
has the potential to activate the Head-array unintentionally.
Avoid use under high power lines and around cell phones.
Avoid the use of a Head Array in rain or snow and protect against
the potential of spilled liquids on the sensors.
Avoid cell phones and electronic devices in proximity to the array.
Avoid any source that has the potential of (RFI).
Warn the user of this chair that the chair controls have the potential of acting erractically or making sudden stops, if (RFI) is not
avoided.
If any (RFI) causes erratic behavior, immediately cut off the power
to the wheelchair, and wait until the interference passes.
WARNING
Individuals with physical limitations requiring the use of a specialty
control input device known not to be immune to 20V/m, or not
known, should exercise extra care around known sources of EMI.
WARNING
There is no way to know the effect on EMI if you add accessories
or modify this chair. Any change to your chair may increase the risk
of EMI. Parts not specifically tested or parts from other suppliers
have unknown EMI properties.

Q M- 710/715HD/ 720
VI. GENERAL WARNINGS
M. TRANSFERS
NOTE–To do this: Move your chair past the object you want to reach, then
back up alongside it. Backing up will rotate the casters forward.
WARNING
3. Turn off all power to your chair. If you fail to do so, you may
touch the joystick and cause your chair to move when you
do not expect it.
It is dangerous to transfer on your own. It requires good balance
and agility. Be aware that there is a point during every transfer
when the wheelchair seat is not below you. To prevent a fall:
1. Always turn off power before you transfer to or from your
chair. If you fail to do so you may touch the joystick and
cause your chair to move when you do not expect it.
2. Make sure motor brakes are engaged. This keeps the chair
from moving when you transfer.
3. Work with your health care professional to learn all safe
methods for transfers.
• Learn how to position your body and how to support
yourself during a transfer.
• Have someone help you until you are sure you can do a
safe transfer on your own.
4. Move your chair as close as you can to the seat you are
transferring to. If possible, use a transfer board.
5. Rotate the front casters until they are as far forward as possible.
6. Be careful of the footrests. If you can, remove or swing them
out of the way.

O. DRESSING OR CHANGING CLOTHES
WARNING
Be aware that your weight will shift if you dress or change clothes
while seated in this chair. To make the chair more stable, rotate the
front casters until they are forward.
P. OBSTACLES
WARNING
Riding over curbs or obstacles can cause tipping and serious bodily
harm. If you have any doubt that you can safely cross any curb or
obstacle, ALWAYS ASK FOR HELP. Be aware of your riding skills
and personal limitations. Develop new skills only with the help of
a companion.
1. Be aware that thresholds are very dangerous. (Even a small
change in height may stop a caster wheel and cause your
chair to tip). You may need to:
• Remove or cover threshold strips between rooms.
• Install a ramp at entry or exit doors.
2. Keep your eyes moving when you ride; scan the area well
ahead of your chair.
3. Make sure the floor areas where you use this chair are level
and free of obstacles.
Q. DRIVING IN REVERSE
WARNING
N. REACHING OR LEANING
WARNING
Use extra care when you drive your chair in reverse. You may lose
control or fall if one of the rear wheels hits an object.
1. Operate your chair slowly and at an even speed.
2. Stop often and check to make sure your path is clear of
obstacles.
Reaching or leaning affects the center of balance of your chair. If
done improperly, a fall or tip-over is likely. When in doubt, ask for
help or use a device to extend your reach.
To Reduce the Risk of injury and/or Damage to the Chair:
1. Never reach or lean if you must shift your weight sideways or
rise up off the seat.
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. Never reach with both hands (you may not be able to catch
yourself to prevent a fall if you lose your balance).
4. Never try to pick up an object from the floor by reaching down
between your knees.
5. Never put pressure on the footrests while reaching.
6. Never reach or lean over the top of the seat back. This may
damage the backrest and cause you to fall.
R. RAMPS, SLOPES & SIDEHILLS
WARNING
Your center of balance changes when you are on a slope.
NOTE– “Slope” includes a ramp or sidehill. Your chair is less stable
when it is at an angle. Never use this chair on a slope
unless your are sure it is safe. When in doubt, have someone help you.
WARNING
IF YOU MUST REACH OR LEAN, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Remember to:
1. Move your chair as close as you can to the object you wish
to reach.
2. Rotate the front casters until they are as far forward as possible. This makes the chair more stable.

VI. GENERAL WARNINGS
U. WHEELCHAIR LIFTS
Beware Of:
1. Steep slopes. Do Not use this chair on a slope steeper than
10%. (A 10% slope means: One foot in elevation for every
ten feet of slope length).
2. Wet or slippery surfaces (such as when ice, snow, water or
oil film is present). A loss of traction may cause a fall or tipover.
3. A change in grade on a slope (or a lip, bump or depression).
These may cause a fall or tip-over.
4. A drop-off at the bottom of a slope. (A drop-off of as small
as 3/4 inch (19 mm) can stop a front caster and cause the
chair to tip forward).
WARNING
Wheelchair lifts are used in vans, buses, and buildings to help you
move from one level to another.
1. Always turn off all power to your chair when you are on a
lift. If you fail to do so, you may touch the joystick by accident and cause your chair to drive off the platform. (Be
aware that a “roll-stop” at the end of the platform may not
prevent this).
2. Make sure there is not a lip or drop-off at the top or bottom of the platform. These may cause a fall or tip-over. When
in doubt, have someone help you.
3. Always position the user securely in the chair to help prevent
falls while on a lift.
4. Avoid moving forward if a wheel is “hung up” on the lip of
the ramp. Backup, reposition the caster for a more direct
approach. And slowly try again.
S. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A FALL, TIP-OVER
OR LOSS OF CONTROL
WARNING
1. Never use your chair on a slope unless you are sure you can
do so without losing traction.
2. Always go as straight up and as straight down as you can.
• Do not “cut the corner” on a slope or ramp.
• Do not turn or change direction on a slope.
3. Always stay in the center of the ramp. The ramp needs to be
wide enough so that the wheel won’t roll off of the side of
the ramp.
4. Keep your chair moving at a slow, steady speed. Keep control over the chair at all times.
• On a descent, do not let your chair accelerate beyond its
normal speed.
• If the chair picks up speed, center the joystick to slow
down or stop.
V. CURBS & SINGLE STEPS
WARNING
1. Sunrise recommends that you avoid climbing and/or descending
a curb, single step, or other obstacle, and that a ramp or curb
cutout is always used.
2. If you must climb or descend a curb, single step, or other
obstacle that is greater than 2.5", it is recommended to have
a person assist you in doing so.
3. DO NOT try to climb a curb, single step, or other obstacle
greater than 4" high.
4. If you must climb or descend a curb or step alone do so at your
own risk using extreme care and follow the following procedure:
• Proceed slowly, at a steady speed
• Go as straight up or down as you can over the obstacle.
Never turn when trying to climb or descend and obstacle,
doing so may result in a fall or tip-over.
5. Failure to follow the above recommendations may cause:
• A Fall or Tip Over
• Damage to the frame, wheels, axles or other parts, or
loose fasteners.
T. RAMPS AT HOME & WORK
WARNING
Before driving on a ramp, survey the condition of the ramp. On
slippery ramps traction may be reduced causing your wheelchair to
slide.
WARNING
W. STAIRS
NOTE– Make sure ramps meet all Building Codes for your area.
1. For your safety, have a licensed contractor build or remodel
ramp to meet all local codes and standards.
2. The proper design will vary, depending on such things as: the
length and height of the ramp; the need for an intermediate
platform; landing size; doors, and the direction of swing, and;
whether the ramp includes a turn or angle.
WARNING
Never use this chair to go up or down stairs, even with an attendant. Doing so is likely to cause a fall or tip-over.
X. ESCALATORS
At A Minimum:
1. Open sides of ramp must have side rails to prevent your
chair from going over the edge.
2. Slope must not be steeper than one inch in height for every
one foot of slope length (approximately 10º).
3. Ramp surface must be even, and have a non-skid surface.
4. You may need to add a section at the top or bottom to
avoid a lip or drop-off.
5. Ramp must be sturdy. Add bracing if needed, so ramp does
not “bow” when you ride on it.
118444 Rev. D
WARNING
Never take this chair on an escalator, even with an attendant.

X. BATTERIES
A. INTRODUCTION
WARNING
1. Notes–
• Batteries supply the power for your chair. They contain a
finite amount of energy and have limits on how long they can
store and supply energy.
• You can charge batteries only a certain number of times
before they will fail and no longer hold a charge.
• For answers to questions about batteries, consult your supplier.
1. Never use an extension cord. Use of an improper cord
could damage the charger or cause a fire or electrical shock.
2. A battery emits explosive hydrogen gas during charging. To
reduce the risk of fire or explosion:
• Never smoke or allow a spark, flame or high heat near
battery during charging.
• Never allow metal tools or chair parts to make direct
contact across both battery terminals.
2. Use Proper Batteries:
Your chair operates on two 12 volt batteries.
•
•
•
•
•
ALWAYS:
1. Use the charger that comes with your wheelchair. Read and
follow all instructions and warnings.
2. Make sure room is well ventilated.
3. Turn off all power to your chair.
4. Connect and disconnect battery cables with caution.
They should be Group 24, 34 (or 22NF) size with a minimum
of 50 ampere hour rating.
Only deep cycle sealed case construction batteries should be
used in this device.
Connecting Type: Post style batteries or flat top batteries
(used when lowest seat-to-floor height is desired).
When you buy a replacement, insist on a deep cycle sealed
case type. Do not use any other kind of battery.
Group 24 batteries are a minimum requirement for power
seating.
NOTE– Always remove and reattach the negative cable (black cable) first.
5. Make sure to allow enough time to fully charge batteries.
NOTE– Batteries should never be left for long periods in the discharged
state. Unused or stored batteries should be given a charge once
per month.
3. Breaking In:
• A battery requires “breaking-in” for the first 6 to 12 charges.
It will not accept a full charge for this period.
• It is best to limit the length of your trips until you break the
batteries in and you know the range of your chair.
C. BATTERY CHARGER
A battery charger produces a direct current (DC). When applied
to a discharged battery, this reverses the chemical reaction that led
to its discharge.
4. Discharged Batteries:
• Never allow a battery to completely discharge. If you operate your wheelchair until it has almost stopped, you will
greatly reduce the life of your batteries.
• Never let a battery sit in a discharged condition. Give
unused or stored batteries a full charge once per month.
• Always fully charge the batteries. Avoid “topping off” with
frequent charges.
1. Charge Rate. How fast a battery will charge depends on:
• Its electrical capacity; state of charge; electrolyte temperature, and; internal condition.
• The DC output of the charger. (The charge rate will vary if
the alternating current (AC) supply is higher or lower than
110 volts).
2. Caution — To Avoid Damage to the Charger:
• Never place the charger on top of a battery during charging.
(Gases from the battery can damage the charger and may
lead to an explosion or fire).
• Never place a battery on top of the charger.
• Never expose charger to rain or snow.
• Never unplug charger by pulling on the electrical cord. This
will damage the cord.
• Never open a charger or attempt to repair it yourself.
Return charger to Sunrise or have repairs made only by a
qualified person.
• Keep cord out of the way, where it will not be stepped on,
tripped over, or damaged.
WARNING
Never connect a life support or auxiliary device to a wheelchair
battery. The electrical system may fail, and result in severe injury to
or death of user.
B. CHARGING YOUR BATTERIES
WARNING
To avoid the risk of severe injury or death from electrical shock,
fire or explosion while charging: Never connect charger to a 240
volt source. The main input voltage is 110 volts. Never make direct
contact across both battery terminals, as an explosion may occur. A
spark may result in an explosion and/or fire resulting in severe
injury or death.
3. Caution — To Avoid Damage to the Battery:
• Make sure you use the correct setting for sealed (gel) batteries (located on the off-board charger).
• Never charge a frozen battery. A fully charged battery will
rarely freeze, but the fluid in a discharged battery can freeze
at 16 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 9 degrees Centigrade). If
you suspect a battery is frozen, thaw it before charging.
WARNING
Never touch the charger after it is connected to an electrical outlet. This may cause electrical shock.
Never connect or disconnect charger from battery while there is
power to the charger.
