4. Safety Precautions
Please read and follow the safety precautions listed below. The operation and use of Oxford
patient lifts is simple and straightforward. Following these few basic safety precautions will make
lifting operations easy and trouble free.
READ AND UNDERSTAND THE USER INSTRUCTION MANUAL BEFORE USING
YOUR “PRESENCE”
WARNING
• ALWAYS plan your lifting operations before commencing.
• ALWAYS carry out the DAILY CHECK LIST before using the lift.
• ALWAYS familiarise yourself with the operating control and safety features of a lift before
lifting a patient.
• DO NOT use a sling unless it is recommended for use with the lift.
• ALWAYS check the sling is suitable for the particular patient and is of the correct size
and capacity.
• NEVER use a sling which is frayed or damaged.
• ALWAYS fit the sling according to the instructions provided (user instructions).
• ALWAYS check the safe working load of the lift is suitable for the weight of the patient.
• ALWAYS carry out lifting operations according to the instructions in the user manual.
• NEVER disconnect or bypass a control or safety feature because it seems easier to operate
the lift.
• DO NOT lift a patient with the castor brakes on. Always let the lift find the correct centre of
gravity.
• DO NOT attempt to manoeuvre the lift by pushing on the mast, boom or patient.
• ALWAYS manoeuvre the lift with the handle / foot push pad provided.
• ALWAYS lower the patient to the lowest comfortable position before transfers.
• DO NOT push a loaded lift at speeds which exceed a slow walking pace (3 Km/hour 0.8
metres/second).
• DO NOT push the lift over uneven or rough ground. Particularly if loaded.
• DO NOT attempt to push/pull a loaded lift over a floor obstruction.
• NEVER force an operating/safety control. All controls are easy to use and do not
require excessive force.

• The MINIMUM load required to manually lower the hoist using the mechanical emergency
down function is 30 kg.
• DO NOT park a loaded lift on ANY sloping surface.
• DO NOT use electric lifts in a shower.
• DO NOT charge an electric lift in a bathroom or shower room.

1. Leg adjustment
The legs on the Oxford Presence are electrically adjustable for width. The legs can be opened to
enable access around armchairs or wheelchairs. For transferring and negotiating narrow doorways
and passages the lift legs should be in the closed position.
Electric leg adjustment - is achieved by pressing the appropriate buttons on the handcontrol. The
legs will be locked whenever the handcontrol switch is released.
2. Castors and Braking
The lift has two braked castors which can be applied for parking. When lifting, the castors should
be left free and un-braked. The lift will then be able to move to the centre of gravity of the lift. If
the brakes are applied it is the patient that will swing to the centre of gravity and this may prove
disconcerting and uncomfortable.
3. Raising and lowering the boom
The movement of the boom is achieved by a powerful electric actuator which is controlled by a
simple handcontrol unit. The handcontrol has two buttons with directional arrows UP and DOWN
. The actuator stops automatically at the limit of travel in both directions. The handcontrol
plugs into a socket at the base of the control box.
4. Emergency Stop
The red Emergency Stop Button is located on the front of the control box and is activated by
pressing in. This will cut all power to the lift and only be reset by twisting the button anticlockwise
and releasing.

5. Electrical Emergency Down/Up
Emergency lower (down) and raise (up) buttons are provided at the front of the control box. This
is operated by inserting a ballpoint pen into the button highlighted . This will bring the boom
up or down should the handcontrol fail at any time.
6. Mechanical Emergency Down
In the case of a complete electrical failure the electrical actuator is fitted with mechanical lowering
device (RED BOSS). This will only operate when the lift is under load. The device must be pulled
upwards to activate, and a slow decent will commence.
Note: The MINIMUM load required to manually lower the hoist using the mechanical emergency
down function is 30 kg.
7. Batteries
The batteries are protected from deep discharge by a LOW VOLTAGE ALARM. This will sound
when the batteries need recharging and the handcontrol is being operated. It will not sound
independently of the handcontrol being operated. DO NOT IGNORE THIS WARNING ALARM.
Complete the lifting operation and place the battery on charge (see charging instructions).
8. Slings
The Oxford Presence has the option of both a 6-point spreader bar and a 4-point positioning cradle.
Both systems use different attachment methods and slings.
The 6-point system uses slings with webbing loops, which allow positioning adjustment by selecting
different coloured loops. The 4-point cradle uses the Secruri3 safety clip system and adjustment is
made by rotating the 4-point cradle either upward or down.
Loop strap slings: Oxford Quickfit, Full Back, Quickfit Deluxe, Long Seat, Access and Silkfit
Safety clip slings: Oxford Comfort
The 6-point system attaches to the spreader bar hooks via loop straps (shown below), each sling is
supplied with instructions. Please study the instruction guide before use.

FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY
Your presence lift has the option of using both a 6-point spreader bar and 4-point positioning
cradle. The removal of either of these systems is completed easily by the use of a quick-release
pin. This is done quickly and easily, but you must read the following safety instructions to ensure
the spreader bar/cradle is safely locked into position before use.
CONNECTION
To connect, raise the spreader bar/cradle up toward the boom slot.
Insert the pin sleeve through the plastic end cap and to support the spreader bar/cradle.
Once aligned in the boom slot reinsert the quick release pin fully into the sleeve until it locks into
position. YOU MUST CHECK THAT THE PIN IS SECURELY FITTED.
To do this, press your finger into the barbed end. If the pin remains stationary the lift is safe to use.
