SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

The ConvaQuip Series of full body patient lifts reflect innovative state of the art design to increase user mobility. The ConvaLift will provide years of service if it is properly maintained as any electric and/or mechanical equipment requires. Please pay careful attention to the following important information regarding the care, maintenance, and operation of the patient lift. Carefully read these instructions before assembling the lifter, or attempting to lift a user with the device.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

• Special care must be taken with users/patients who cannot themselves provide assistance while being lifted. (i.e. patients who are comatose, spastic, agitated, or otherwise severely handicapped.)

• The patient lift should be used solely for transferring a user/patient from one utility (beds, chairs, toilets, etc.) to another. The patient lift should not be used for transporting or moving any patient from one location to another location.

• During lifting or lowering, whenever possible, always keep the base of the lift in the widest position.

• The base of the lift should be closed before moving the lift.

• Do not roll casters over any object while the user/patient is in the sling.

• Do not lock casters during lifting.

• While being lifted in a sling, always keep the user/patient centered over the base and facing the caregiver operating the lifter.

• Never leave the user/patient unattended during lifting.

The ConvaLift allows a person to be lifted and transferred safely, with minimum physical effort provided by the caregiver. Before attempting to lift anyone, please practice operating the lift. Also prior to actual lifting, explain the lifting procedure to the user/ patient.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Double check all assemblies for tightness and read operating instructions carefully prior to use.

Do not attempt to use patient lift unless the patient exhibits control over the upper body, strength to grasp the handles, ability to bear some weight and flexibility in knees, hips, and ankles.

PREPARATION BEFORE LIFTING

• Turn on the power by twisting the RED RESET BUTTON clockwise.

• Press the UP or DOWN button on the hand control once. Check if the battery indicator lights are on.

• Position the base of the lift around or under the object.

• Widen the base and engage the caster brakes.

Do not attempt to transfer a patient without prior approval of the person’s nurse. Also, do not transfer without having studied the instructions and performed several practices in operating the product. Together (with the patients doctor, nurse, or medical attendant) select a sling that is both practical and comfortable. The sling selected should be one that serves the needs of the patient, while providing the patient with optimal safety. Never interfere with the lift, unless instructed by the attendant. Have a doctor, nurse, or medical attendant (experienced in the use of the ConvaLift) present during the first few times the lift is used to transfer a new user.

15

Turn the lift “ON” by turning the red “RESET” button clockwise. Turn the lift “OFF” by pressing down the “RESET” button.

TRANSFER FROM BED

• User/patient should be in the center of the bed.

• Position user onto his/her side by rolling user towards you.

• Roll the sling in half, approximately. The handle on the back section should face outward when the sling is fitted.

• Position the sling under the user/patient so the commode aperture aligns with the base of the spine and top of the sling close to the neck.

• Roll user onto the opposite side and position him/her on the flat section of the sling. This will allow you to unroll the remainder of the sling from the other side of the user.

• Once the sling has been positioned centrally, feed the leg sections under the thighs and draw them up between the thighs.

• Raise the head of the bed if this function is available.

• Move the lift slowly towards the user and position the spreader bar over the user’s/patient’s chest.

MAINTENANCE & INSPECTION

• The operator of the lift shall inspect the ConvaLift before each use. Check all bolts for tightness. Make sure the base can be easily widened, and that all lift parts are in place. Make sure that casters can be turned freely, and that caster brakes can be engaged. Make certain all necessary items (i.e. slings, and wheelchairs, etc.) are ready for use.

• At least once a month, the lift should be thoroughly inspected by a person qualified to recognize any signs of wear and tear, and looseness of bolts or parts. Replace any worn parts immediately.

• To lubricate, put a drop of oil on the following points when the ConvaLift is placed into service and every month thereafter: Top of Mast, Spreader

Hinge, and Caster Axles.

BOOM & SPREADER BAR

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

The following list of encountered problems and solutions will assist you in determining what may be causing your patient lift not to function as designed. If you have a problem occurring which is not listed below please contact your dealer or technical support for help. Do not attempt to repair or replace components or parts on your ConvaLift as this may void your warranty or cause further problems that may result in patient injury. Stop using your lift immediately if it is not functioning correctly or any warning beeps are heard.

I need to re-charge my batteries often or they fail to hold a charge when I charge them.

• Replace the batteries or battery pack as they are at the end of their life cycle

• Batteries should be changed every 18-24 months depending on usage

The actuator will either go up or down but not both

• Replace your hand control as it is at the end of its life cycle

• Your control box may be malfunctioning

There is a grinding sound inside the actuator when lifting

• Replace your actuator as the internal gears are stripped

The actuator stops and starts while lifting or lowering

• Replace the batteries or battery pack as they are at the end of their life cycle

My lift will not operate even though it shows the batteries are charged

• Unplug the AC power cord from the control box as the lift will not work when the control box/charger is connected to AC Power.

Check to make sure the hand control is properly inserted all the way into the control box port.

Check to make sure the actuator plug is properly connected and inserted all the

way into the control box

Your hand control needs to be replaced as it is at the end of its life cycle

If there is problem you could not correct, please contact the dealer for assistance.

EMERGENCY LOWERING MECHANISM

In case there is a failure with the actuator or electronics and the user is left suspended in mid-air, please follow the procedures below to safely lower the user to a safer position.

Contact your dealer immediately if standard troubleshooting techniques do not correct the failure. Do not attempt to lift until all failure and safety issues have been resolved.

The following instructions apply to the CL600E / CL600E-D

The Quick Release is implemented by a spring loaded lever mounted at the top end collar of the actuator shaft. DO NOT attempt to turn the Quick Release mechanism like a knob. This will damage the Quick Release mechanism and actuator. Manually activate Quick Release by pulling the RED lever with the arrow symbol in the direction indicated by the arrow towards the opposite red tab.

This will de-clutch the actuator and lower the user safely down.

Note! When the Quick Release is activated, the boom will not lower itself unless there is weight or force applied in the downward direction.

CL600E / CL600E-D

Pinch pinion red tabs together

NOTE:

THE EMERGENCY LOWERING DEVICE IS INTENDED FOR USE

DURING LIFT FAILURE. THIS DEVICE WILL ALLOW LOWERING OF

PATIENTS ONLY. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR DEALER IMMEDIATELY IN

CASE OF FAILURE.
