Operating the wheelchair
The wheelchair is well suited for normal weather conditions and firm surfaces. For safety purposes,
please avoid using the wheelchair in adverse weather and other poor conditions.
1 -1 User indications
Operating the wheelchair may injure the user or damage the wheelchair if the user is unable to have
full control. If the user is not mentally or physically able to keep full control of the vehicle at all times, an
attendant must be present when necessary.

Safety and Operating information
This manual references the most common procedure. Techniques of safe operation and
maintenance of the wheelchair are mentioned as well. In order to handle your wheelchair safely,
please follow all detailed instructions given in the manual.
Stability
Your wheelchair has been designed to provide the stability you need during normal daily activities.
Therefore, proper operation of your wheelchair will maintain balance at all times. The impact on the
position of the center of gravity is under any wheelchair movement. A change in the center of gravity
may lead to the wheelchair tipping over and a fall. When you move or transfer your weight from one
place to another, we recommend using seat belts to improve your safety.
Weight Limit
The maximum limitation weight of the user is 150 kg.
CAUTION !
- Do not use parts that can be detached, such as armrests, for support or any other reasons other
than the intended purposes. Do not use them as a means for lifting the product, as they may be
inadvertently released. This may result in injury to the user and / or attendant.
CAUTION !
- Avoid turning suddenly and never try to climb and descend a ramp diagonally.

Safety inspection
3-1 Performance
As the user, any possible operational defects of your wheelchair will be noticed by you first. The easiest
troubleshooting symptoms to identify and the preliminary inspection that you can perform are indicted
in the following table. You should consult your retailer if the symptoms persist after adjusting the pressure in the tires and tightening screws and nuts.
3/12
3-2 General inspection
The responsibility of any wheelchair repairs belongs to your distributor with qualified, technical expertise. We suggest a complete inspection by your retailer at least once a year. Regular maintenance
helps the identification and replacement of defective and worn parts on your wheelchair. This also
allows the improvement of daily operation.
a. General
Make sure that the wheelchair folds and unfolds easily and smoothly.
Check that the wheelchair moves in a straight line. (No resistance or deviation)
b. Folding system
Check the folding system for worn or distorted parts.
c. Armrests
Make sure that the armrests are firmly attached and in good condition.
Check the pressure of the armrest.
d. Seat and backrest upholstery
Make sure that the upholstery is in good condition.
e. Rear wheels
Make sure that the wheel nuts and precision bearings are tight.
Check that the wheels are parallel to the frame.
k. Castors
Make sure that the axle is tight by turning the wheel. The wheel must gradually come to a stop.
l. Fork
Make sure that all the fittings are well tightened.
m. Rubber pneumatic tires
Check the pressure of the pneumatic tires (value indicated on the side).
CAUTION !
- Although the Mobi-Chair can float on water, you cannot use or treat it as a boat. In normal condition of use, the Mobi-Chair will not turn over if the user sits sturdily. However, for safety and requirement by law, a life jacket is to be worn by the user. The Mobi-Chair is not intended for areas with
currents or strong waves.
Please be sure to use Mobi-Chair in a range in which the lifeguard can reach timely.
Be careful and have fun!
