NOTE: The stand up lift may be operated by one (1) healthcare professional for ALL lifting preparation, transferring
from and transferring to procedures with a cooperative, weight--bearing individual able to support the majority of his/her
own weight. However, since medical conditions vary, Invacare recommends that the healthcare professional evaluate
the need for assistance and determine whether more than one (1) assistant is appropriate in each case to safely
perform the transfer.
WARNING
DO NOT attempt any transfer without approval of the patient’s physician, nurse or medical assistant.
Thoroughly read the instructions in this Owner’s Manual, observe a trained team of experts perform the
lifting procedures and then perform the entire lift procedure several times with proper supervision and a
capable individual acting as a patient.
Individuals that use the Standing Sling (Model R130) MUST be able to support the majority of their own
weight, otherwise injury can occur.
DO NOT raise the patient to a full standing position while using the transport sling (model R134), otherwise
injury can occur.
Invacare standing and transport slings are specifically designed to be used in conjunction with the
Invacare Stand Up Lift. Slings and accessories designed by other manufacturers or other Invacare slings
are not to be utilized as a component of Invacare’s stand up lift system. Use of these products is prohibited
and will void Invacare’s stand up lift warranty. Use only genuine Invacare standing and transport slings and
lift accessories to maintain patient safety and product utility. Use the sling that is recommended by the
individual’s doctor, nurse or medical assistant for the comfort and safety of the individual being lifted.
Before positioning the legs of the stand up lift around the patient, make sure the patient's feet are out of
the way of the footplate, otherwise injury can occur.
Invacare recommends locking the rear swivel casters ONLY when positioning or removing the sling
(standing or transport) from around the patient.
Invacare does NOT recommend locking the rear swivel casters of the stand up lift when lifting and
transferring an individual. Doing so could cause the lift to tip and endanger the patient and assistants.
Invacare DOES recommend that the rear swivel casters be left UNLOCKED during lifting and transferring
procedures to allow the stand up lift to stabilize itself when the patient is initially lifted from and transferred
to a chair, bed or any stationary object.
STANDING SLINGS - DO NOT use the standing sling in combination with the stand up lift as a transport
device. It is intended to transfer an individual from one resting surface to another (such as a bed to a
wheelchair). Moving a person using the standing sling in combination with the stand up lift over ANY
distance is NOT recommended.
STANDING SLINGS - Before lifting the patient, make sure the bottom edge of the standing sling is positioned on the lower back of the patient and the patient's arms are outside the standing sling.
STANDING SLINGS - The belt MUST be snug, but comfortable on the patient, otherwise the patient can
slide out of the sling during transfer, possibly causing injury.
TRANSPORT SLINGS - Before lifting the patient, make sure the bottom edge of the transport sling is at the
base of the spine and the patient's arms are outside the transport sling.
DO NOT use any kind of material (such as a plastic back incontinence pad or seating cushion) between
the patient and sling material that may cause the patient to slide out of the sling during transferring.
ALWAYS use the color coded strap on the standing sling closest to the patient while still maintaining
patient stability and comfort.

SAFETY SUMMARY
SAFETY SUMMARY, (continued)
WARNING
Bleached, torn, cut, frayed, or broken slings are unsafe and could result in injury. Discard Immediately.
DO NOT alter slings.
When elevated a few inches off the surface being transferred from and before moving the patient,
check again to make sure that the sling is properly connected to the attachment points of the
stand up lift. If any attachments are NOT properly in place, lower the patient back onto the surface
and correct this problem.
During transfer, with patient suspended in a sling attached to the lift, DO NOT roll stand up lift over objects
such as carpet, raised carpet bindings, door frames, or any uneven surfaces or obstacles that would
create an imbalance of the stand up lift and could cause the stand up lift to tip over. Use push handle on
the mast at ALL times to push or pull the stand up lift.
Use push handle on the mast at ALL times to push or pull the stand up lift.
Casters and axle bolts require inspection every six (6) months to check for tightness and wear.
After the first 12 months of operation, inspect all pivot points and fasteners for wear. If the metal
is worn, the parts MUST be replaced. Make this inspection every six (6) months thereafter.
The electric motor is sealed at the factory and if service is required, the motor unit MUST BE returned to the factory for repair. DO NOT attempt to open the motor or obtain local service as this
will VOID the warranty and may result in damage and a costly repair. Consult your Dealer or
Invacare for further information.
Regular maintenance of Stand Up Lift and accessories is necessary to assure proper operation.
Grounding Instructions:
DO NOT, under any circumstances, cut or remove the round grounding prong from any plug used with
or for Invacare products. Some devices are equipped with three-prong (grounding) plugs for protection against possible shock hazards. Where a two-prong wall receptacle is encountered, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to contact a qualified electrician and have the twoprong receptacle replaced with a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle in accordance
with the National Electrical Code. If you must use an extension cord, use ONLY a three-wire extension
cord having the same or higher electrical rating as the device being connected. In addition, Invacare
has placed RED/ORANGE WARNING TAGS on some equipment. DO NOT remove these tags. Carefully
read battery/battery charger information prior to operating, charging or servicing your stand up lift.
WEIGHT LIMITATION
DO NOT exceed maximum weight limitation of the Stand Up Lift. The maximum weight limitation is
350 lbs. regardless of any additional weight limitations on accessories.

LUBRICATION (FIGURE 1)
All parts of the Invacare Stand Up Lift are made of the best
grades of steel, but metal to metal contact will wear after
considerable use.
There is no adjustment or maintenance of either the casters or brakes, other than cleaning, lubrication and checking axle and swivel bolts for tightness. Remove all debris,
etc. from the wheel and swivel bearings. If any parts are
worn, replace these parts immediately.
The Invacare Stand Up Lift is designed for minimum maintenance; however, a six (6) month check should ensure
continued safety and reliability.
Keep lift and slings clean and in good working order. Any
defect should be noted and reported to your dealer as
soon as possible.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR STAND UP LIFT
The casters MUST swivel and roll smoothly. A light grease
(waterproof auto lubricant) may be applied to the ball
