This product has been designed and manufactured with safety and function for both the user and
the operator as the utmost importance. The recommended max load capacity for this product is
120kg.
Operators must read and follow the manual to ensure all safety precautions are not compromised.
For safety when lowering the product to its lowest position, the operator should ensure any
obstructions are removed from behind.
When fully reclining the back on a twin motor mechanism the chair should be positioned a
minimum of 650mm distance from a rear wall.
For safety transferring a patient on / off the chair, the operator must ensure that the rear castors
have been locked
Never have any loose objects in the vicinity of the product when using any of the functions, as
these may obstruct, hinder or damage the moving components of the product. Always check the
surrounding area and under the chair for objects that may be crushed with any movement of the
product.
Do not place anything over the power cords, pass any power cords through the chair or drag the
chair by the cords. When positioning ensure all cabling is free of the mechanism. Damaging
the electrical cables voids the warranty.
Ensure electrical plug is disconnected from the wall before moving the product.
Do not use as a CPR Bed.
When not in use, leave the product in the upright position.
Follow the maintenance instructions.
Follow the cleaning instructions.

The product is delivered fully assembled and ready for use however inspect the product before use.
For protection the transformer and power cable are stored behind the backrest cushion.
Transformer, power cord and
cable can be found tucked
behind the bottom of the
lumbar cushion.

For protection the cables that connect the battery charge unit to the actuators and the battery to the
transformer are located in a zipped pouch behind the bottom skirt at the rear of the chair.
Zipped protective pouch that
contains cabling.
ACTUATORS TO BATTERY CABLE: Cable
connecting the actuators to the battery unit.
Note: These cables will be connected upon
receipt and need not be disconnected at any
time. This cable should be kept in the
protective pouch at all times.
CHARGING CABLE: Cable
for connecting the battery
unit to the transformer when
charging. Note: When not
charging this cable should be

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Positioning
The Air Comfort Compact Mobile Lift Chair (Twin Motor) is fitted with two electric actuators. Using a
handset, this allows the occupant or carer to gradually lift the chair at an angle to assist the occupant to
sit or alight from the chair. Using the same handset the leg rest can be raised and the back reclined for
further comfort. The twin motor allows each of these functions to be operated independently or in
unison.
•
When fully reclining the back on a twin motor mechanism the chair should be positioned a
minimum of 650mm distance from a rear wall.

BATTERY BACKUP
The battery backup feature enables the lift chair to be powered to the raised position (once only) in the
event of a power failure.
2 x 9v batteries are fitted to the compartment inside the hand control.
The batteries must be replaced if the lift chair has been operated during a power failure or operated
when unintentionally not plugged into AC power.

CASTORS
All Compact Lift Mobile Chairs are fitted with four castors. The two rear swivel castors are also
locking. To lock the castors simply push the black lever down. To unlock the castors push the same
lever down on the opposite end. The operator should always use their foot for locking and unlocking
the castors.

PUSH HANDLE
Every Compact Lift Mobile Chair is fitted with rear push handle so that the carer can maneuver the
chair with greater ease either with or without an occupant seated.
Note: Before maneuvering the chair with the occupant seated, ensure the footrest is slightly raised to
bring the occupants feet off the floor.
BATTERY CHARGE
The Compact Lift Mobile Chair (Twin motor) is fitted with a chargable battery unit that is fixed inside
the back frame. This battery enables the lift and recline functions to be operated when the chair is not
plugged into AC power.
Charge the battery for a full 8 hours prior to use.
To charge the battery, connect the Charging Cable located in the protective pouch (See set up
Instructions) to the Transformer. Connect the Transformer to the AC mains. Charge will begin
immediately.
When charging the
battery, connect the
Charging Cable (See Set
Up Instructions) to the
transformer.
The Battery Capacity of 2.3Ah permits approximately 100 adjustment cycles per charge. If the battery
voltage reaches a warning threshold, an acoustic alarm signal sounds when the manual switch is pressed.
This is an indication that the battery needs to be recharged before further use.
The battery should be fully charged at least every 6 months if not in use. Failure to do so will reduce the
life of the battery. If used regularly, the battery should be charged once every 24 hours.

AIR COMFORT SEATING SYSTEM
The Exclusive Air Comfort Seating System is comprised of four separate air bladders providing
complete head to toe pressure relief and superior comfort. Each Bladder is filled with a specifically
calibrated low level of air to ensure maximum pressure relief for the average user.
There should be no need to adjust the level of air or access the bladders unless to fulfill a specific
clinical need and at the direction of a Clinician or if there appears to be a fault.
All Air Comfort models are extensively pressure mapped during research and development to identify
the ideal air levels, construction and materials.

SERVICE & MAINTENANCE
Maintenance and Cleaning
1. Cleaning Instructions
•
Material: Please follow specific fabric-cleaning instructions located on the rear backrest
cushion.
•
Electrical components and cables: The handset, transformer, cables and actuators should
be regularly inspected, cleaned and replaced if found to be damaged. Failure to
immediately replace damaged components can result in damage to other connected
electrical components.
•
Lift Action: The steel lift action should be regularly cleaned with a damp cloth and then
wiped dry. After some time lubrication of joints and pivot points can assist
Common Service Concerns
1. The transformer is overheating and the lift and recline action is not operating. This usually
indicates that one of the cords inside the action has been damaged or cut. Contact your dealer to
arrange a repair. This damage is not a covered under warranty.
2. There isn’t enough air in the seat. If you are unfamiliar with the Air system, it may appear
that there is not enough air in the air bags. The air bladders work effectively when the user is
sitting in the chair. When seated the small amount of air will displace throughout the bladders to
create a thin layer of air cushioning. Do not add air to the bladders before first consulting your
supplier or the manufacturer. If you believe one of the air bladders has deflated, un-velcro the
cover on the side of the seat to access and carefully remove the problem bladder. Examine the
bag and the valve for obvious punctures or any sign of damage, particularly along the welds. To
test for a leak, inflate the bag (making sure the valve is then properly secured) and leave it aside
for several hours or overnight to see if it deflates of its own accord. If the bladder shows signs of
leaking air, a new bladder can be sourced through the supplier from whom the unit was
purchased. Should you wish to repair the air bladder onsite, puncture kits are available. Follow
the instructions on the puncture kits for repairing the leak.
3. The seat area has collapsed. Do not be alarmed when the seat settles into its natural shape.
The seat should look slightly concaved after some time as the foam settles. This does not
necessarily indicate that the air bladders are faulty. Sit in the unit and you will find that the
cushioning is unchanged, or in fact improved. If you still feel the air bladder has a leak, follow
the steps outlined in point 2 above.
