XXL Care Lift, Electrically Elevating Shower-, Commode- & Care Lift
with Tilt-in-Space Seat Unit
The XXL Care Lift was developed to meet both the needs of the bariatric patient and those of the caregivers.
The electrical lifting function (seat height from 50 – 110 cm / 19,7 – 43,3”) enables the helper to obtain an ideal
working position during toileting, showering and personal hygiene routines. This allows the user to enjoy his/her
daily shower, etc. without feeling that they are a burden to the helper, thus contributing to less stressful care
routines.
The elevating function combined with the seat, which can be tilted forward and backward, also enables the XXL
Care Lift to help the user to a standing position. This is possible because the Lift not only lifts the seat up to 60
cm (26,3”) but also can tilt the seat 6 degrees forwards. In this way the XXL Care Lift, in the same way as typical
catapult seats may help the user to move their body’s centre of gravity to a point directly above his/her feet.
Getting to this vertical position is often one of the most difficult problems for bariatric persons with limited
walking or standing ability.
The electrical tilt-in-space seat unit (-20° - + 6°) combined with the adjustable, soft backrest upholstery offers
the user unmatched comfort. Pressure points may be changed and when the seat is tilted backwards, torsostability is increased. The electrical elevating leg-support provides for optimal working positions for the caregiver
during e.g. foot- and wound care.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for improvements, by e-mail at: info@winncare.dk.
The XXL Care Lift is simple & logical to use. However, you must read the following instructions carefully prior
to taking the product into use.
Assembly:
The XXL Care Lift is delivered assembled and ready for use. The only thing you have to do
is to charge the battery in the charging station prior to use.
On/Off:
The control system in the XXL Care Lift incorporates software, which runs continuously.
Therefore, battery power is consumed, even when the electrical hoisting and positioning
functions are not being used. In order to avoid deep discharging of the battery, you should
ALWAYS turn the complete system off, when the XXL Care Lift is not in use. This is done
by pushing the Emergency Stop button, which cuts the power off completely.
Lifting:
All functions are electrical. Power is supplied by a 24 volt battery (Lead Acid) with a capacity
of 10 Ah, sufficient for 10-15 full lifting cycles when fully charged.
Pressing the corresponding button on the hand control activates lifting and lowering. As
soon as the button is released, movement stops.

The Electrical
Functions:
Charging:
Moving people weighing up to 325 kg (715 lbs) requires a lot of force. Therefore, the XXL
Care Lift is equipped with heavy-duty relays, which require 2-3 seconds to close, after the
buttons on the hand control have been released. This means that you should always wait 3
seconds after using one lifting/positioning function before using the next.
NEVER attempt to charge the battery with anything but the charger supplied with the
XXL Care Lift.
Please see illustrated instruction later in this manual.
Interference:
In unlikely case of the XXL Care Lift interfering with other electrical appliances,
immediately take the product out of use and request service.
Safety:
Note the following instructions carefully:
 Never leave a person with insufficient body control alone in the XXL Care Lift
 Make sure that the hands, legs and feet of the user are not squeezed between parts of the
XXL Care Lift and other aid products (e.g. wheelchair, bed, or the like)
 Never use the XXL Care Lift in hot surroundings, e.g. in saunas or in steam baths.

Emergency
Stop:
In the – unlikely – event that movement continues after the
buttons on the hand control have been released, all activity can be
blocked by pushing the red emergency button situated on top of
the burgundy cover. The button is released again by turning it
clockwise. IMMEDIATELY contact your dealer and DO NOT
use the XXL Care Lift again, before it has been inspected and
repaired.
Emergency
stop
Emergency
lowering:
Should the control electronics for some reason malfunction, the seat unit can be lowered by

to lower the seat
Low
Temperatures:
All batteries loose performance when they are cold, i.e. at 0° Celsius (32° F) or colder. If the
battery has become cold e.g. during transport, you may have to re-charge the battery, before
using the XXL Care Lift.
Temperature:
Normal operational temperature should be 0°- 40° Celsius (32° - 104° F)
Humidity:
The XXL Care Lift is designed for use in the shower. However, neither the Lift nor the
electronics should ever be submerged. Never use the XXL Care Lift for showering, when
the black covers are open.
Service:
The XXL Care Lift must undergo at least one service inspection annually by an authorized
technician. Service agreements can be made with your dealer. Winncare cannot be held
responsible for damage to persons caused by the failure to carry out annual service
inspections.
Batteries:
The Battery cells are an integrated part of the battery-box and may only be replaced by the
manufacturer.
