Pow’r Up Lift Option Usage
Charging the Battery
The EasyStand Bantam Pow’r Up Lift uses two 12 volt sealed lead batteries rated at 2.9 amps each. An
EasyStand Bantam can be lifted approximately 100 times on one full battery charge. An audible alarm will
sound when the battery is low. Please charge the battery after the alarm sounds. A battery needing a full
recharge will take approximately 8 hours. The EasyStand Bantam can be raised to the standing position while
being charged. The function of the charger is to detect a full battery and then provide a constant potential
power supply to hold the battery at a full condition without overcharging. When the battery EMF rises to a factory preset point, the charger circuit will not allow the peak output voltage to exceed that value. This factory
FIG. A
setting protects a battery from excessive depletion of electrolyte, which can
occur from overcharging. The charger can be found in the tool pouch on the
back of the unit.
! CAUTION: Use only the Linak charger, model numbers 00CH01-XX OR
10CH01S-00, provided by Altimate Medical with your Pow’r Up option.
1. Plug the receptacle into a wall outlet. The light on the charger will be green
indicating an open circuit.
2. FIG. A-Plug the charger cord into the side of the hand control. The light on
the charger will turn yellow indicating the batteries are being charged.

Activating the Mechanical Emergency Release
! CAUTION: Using the emergency mechanical release as the primary means of returning to the seated
position can cause damage to the unit. Only use the mechanical release in emergency situations.
All Altimate Medical electric lift products are equipped with a
mechanical release to be used in emergency situations.
FIG. G
FIG. G-The release allows the user to be lowered to a seated
position in the unlikely occurrence of the battery losing charge
while the user is in a standing position. The actuator only retracts
if the release is pulled and there is weight on the seat. The release
is located on the left side of the seat and is signified by a red tag
with the word “EMERGENCY”.
1. To activate the emergency mechanical release pull out the
quick release pin located underneath the seat.
2. Squeeze the handle and, if necessary, push down on the handle.
Battery Replacement
The batteries are enclosed in the control box of the Pow’r Up Lift (the black box where the cords are
plugged in). Once the batteries have reached the end of their life and need to be replaced, do not open
the control box; please contact Altimate Medical Customer Service or your medical equipment dealer
for information about purchasing a replacement control box. It is recommended that the batteries be
replaced every four years.
Please contact your local recycling authority for information about disposing of the old batteries.
IP Rating
The IP rating is a classification system indicating the protection degree from dust, water and impact for
electrical equipment and enclosures. Pow’r Up Lift components are rated at IP21. The definition for IP21 is
as follows:
First character definition: 2 - Protected against solid foreign objects of 12.5mm diameter and greater.
Second character definition: 1 - Protected against vertically falling water drops.
Electromagnetic compatibility
Pow’r Up Option components have been designed and tested to meet the applicable EMC requirements. It
is unlikely that you will encounter problems with your EasyStand due to inadequate electromagnetic
compatibility. However, if you notice any unusual (such as intermittent) behavior of your Pow’r Up option
and the EasyStand is being used next to possible interfering equipment such as mobile phones,
microwaves, or radio broadcast masts, this could be an indication of electromagnetic interference. If such
behavior occurs, use the mechanical release to lower the unit to the seated position and move the

range.b
Interference may occur in the vicinity of equipment
marked with the following symbol:
NOTE 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and
reflection from structures, objects, and people.
a
Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile
radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy.
To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be
considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the EasyStand Bantam is used exceeds the
applicable RF compliance level above, the EasyStand Bantam should be observed to verify normal operation. If
abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as re-orienting or relocating the
EasyStand Bantam.
b
Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.

Maintenance
Cleaning/Disinfecting
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Clean the EasyStand Bantam with a mild, non-abrasive disinfectant or soap and water.
Check the EasyStand at least weekly to ensure all nuts, bolts and adjustable parts are tightened securely, failure to do so may result in parts falling off which may cause a choking hazard for children.
Do not use bleach or any other bleach-based cleaners on the EasyStand.
Disinfecting wipes are safe to use on metal and non-porous surfaces.
Use a damp sponge with mild soap or a mild, non-abrasive disinfectant.
Spot clean Neoprene with mild soap and water.
Neoprene covers may be removed and hand washed with water. Air dry the covers. Always use care when removing and replacing the covers.
Do not dry clean any upholstery items.
If the EasyStand is being used with one user, clean the EasyStand on a monthly basis or as needed.
If the EasyStand is being used in a multiple user environment, the EasyStand should be cleaned after each use.
Urethane Coated Fabrics
(Dartex or generic equivalent)
• The recommended cleaning and disinfection instructions should be followed whenever possible to avoid damage to the PU membrane which could lead to premature failure of the cover.
• For superficial dirt, use a disposable wipe and a warm solution of neutral detergent. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
• Disinfect using a 0.1% sodium hypochlorite solution (1000ppmm chlorine), stronger bleach solutions not
recommended.
• Thoroughly rinse any remaining cleaning solution with water and dry fabric before re-use or storage.
• Do not iron.
Hydraulic Actuator Maintenance
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
An initial break-in period of approximately 50-100 full cycles is normal for the hydraulic unit. You may experience a squeaking or a less-than-smooth forward stroke. The very close fit of its mating parts gives each actuator its own break-in “feel” and signature sound.
If the actuator is leaking oil, call a local EasyStand supplier for a replacement. The serial number on the EasyStand will be needed.
Do not exert excessive force on the actuator handle or use the actuator handle to move the EasyStand around. This may cause damage to the actuator handle and/or the actuator mechanism and will void any warranty.
User maintenance is not required or recommended on the hydraulic actuator. Never apply lubricant, household oil, grease, or a similar product to any part of the unit. Some compounds may react with the seals used in the
manufacture of this product. This may damage the unit and will void any warranty.
Do not exceed the rated weight limit.
If the EasyStand was shipped and exposed to a temperature of less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, you must allow
the hydraulic unit to warm to room temperature before use. Failure to follow this step could damage the unit and render it inoperable.
Once a standing position is reached, the actuator may settle back one stroke, this is normal.
It is not always necessary to push the actuator handle all the way back to lower the seat. If difficult to lower the seat, try­pushing the handle back in different positions.
If the unit is in the standing position and unoccupied, it is necessary to apply pressure to the seat of the unit while
pushing the actuator handle back.
Purging The Hydraulic Actuator
The hydraulic actuator on the EasyStand has a high probability of getting air trapped in the internal workings of the
unit. This is usually caused by in-transit handling and is quite normal. Please follow the simple steps below, as manual
hydraulic systems may never operate properly unless the entrapped air is correctly purged. The unit must be at room
temperature for this procedure.
1. Pump the handle until the full extension is reached.
2. Continue pumping the handle slowly for an additional 10 strokes. This will properly purge the system.

TroubleShooting
My lower leg length is too short for the stander. Invert and swap the foot plates left to right.
My Bantam won’t go all the way to standing.
Make sure that the supine option ratchet handles have been correctly assembled. We ship the back flat
and the supine knob must be removed then assembled in the correct square hole. If not removed from
position when shipped the bolt prevents the stander from going all the way up. Please refer to pg.6 in the
owners manual.
One of the arms on my tray is shorter than the other, is this correct?
Yes, it is designed so you can line up the longer arm first, then the shorter arm.
We just received our Bantam and on the tray there is a quick pin to secure the tray in place, but
there are two bolts attached on both sides. Am I suppose to use the bolts to secure the tray in
place?
The bolts and nuts are used as a tray depth guide. You can move them to any one of the holes on the tray
adjustment arm depending on the person using the unit. To use, remove from the tray, position the tray
with the correct depth and then reinstall in the hole closest to the tray top. This will stop the arms at the
correct depth so it is easier and quicker when attaching the tray. To secure the tray, there are two quick
pins attached to cables on both sides of the unit. Check both sides to make sure both are there.
Sometimes, in shipping, they will move around, so at first glance only one side is visible.
How do I order parts?
Contact your local supplier and have the serial number ready. If you don’t know who your supplier is, call
Altimate Medical Customer Service (800) 342-8968 and have the serial number ready.
