It is important and necessary that you inspect your EasyStand Evolv periodically to assure
that it is in safe operating condition. Minor adjustments can be made by the operator.

should be handled by an authorized supplier or service center. Only Altimate Medical, Inc.
approved replacement parts should be used to ensure safety and performance.
Do not use the EasyStand Evolv without consulting your physician.

Transferring & Standing
Transferring
• For proper transfer techniques, please seek professional advice from your therapist or physician.
• The kneepad does not lock in the upright position when transferring, do NOT grab the
kneepad for support.
• Always lock the wheel locks on your wheelchair and the casters on the EasyStand Evolv before
transferring.
• If you do not need assistance in transferring, position your wheelchair next to the EasyStand
Evolv. Flip the armrest and knee support away to allow for increased transfer space. Make sure
that the knee support is flipped up to allow you to position your feet. Complete your transfer
and position your feet in the footplates. Secure the foot straps and reposition the knee and side
supports.
• If required, patient lifts can be used for transferring. There are a variety of access points to
accomplish the assisted transfer.
• When transferring out of the EasyStand, pump the seat up so that it is equal to or higher than
the seat you are transferring back in to.
Standing
• Please consult with your physician or therapist before starting a standing program.
• Once transferred into the EasyStand, position your feet and the knee support and secure any
straps and side supports. Push the pump handle forward with 15-25 strokes. The seat will
slowly rise into the standing position. Remember that you can stop the seat anywhere between
the sitting and standing position.
Caution: If the back is adjusted outside of +/- 10 degrees from vertical, it is possible for
the back angle adjustment knob to come into contact with the lower back tube, causing
damage to the unit.
• To return to the seated position, move and hold the pump handle toward the rear until you have
reached your desired position. The seat will slowly lower until you release the handle.
Caution: When lowering the unit from standing to sitting, keep all hands and feet clear
of the mechanism beneath the seat.
• If you have difficulty getting the seat to lower, you may not be applying the proper pressure to
the handle.
• If the unit is in the standing position and unoccupied, apply moderate pressure to the seat of
the unit while holding the pump handle back. Do not use excessive force.
page 28
Transferring & Standing
Maintenance
• Clean the EasyStand Evolv with a mild non-abrasive disinfectant or soap and water.
• Check your EasyStand periodically to make sure that all nuts, bolts and adjustable parts are
tightened securely.
Hydraulic Actuator Maintenance
• An initial break-in period of approximately 50-100 full cycles is normal for the hydraulic unit. You may
experience a squeaking or a less-than-smooth forward stroke. The very close fit of its mating parts
gives each pump its own break-in “feel” and signature sound.
• If the pump is leaking oil, call your local AMI Supplier for a replacement. The serial number will be
needed.
• Do not exert excessive force on the pump handle or use the pump handle to move your EasyStand
around. This may cause damage to the pump handle and/or the pump mechanism and will void any
warranty.
• User maintenance is not required or recommended on the hydraulic pump. Never apply lubricant,
household oil, grease, or a similar product to any part of the unit. Some compounds may react with
the seals used in the manufacture of this product. This may damage the unit and will void any
warranty.
• Do not exceed the rated weight capacity of the equipment for which this hydraulic unit is used on
(the weight limit for the EasyStand Evolv Large is 280 lbs).
• If your EasyStand was shipped to you during or exposed to a temperature of less then 50 degrees
Fahrenheit, you must allow the hydraulic unit to warm up to room temperature before any use.
Failure to follow this step could damage the unit and render it inoperable.
• It is sometimes not necessary to push the pump handle all the way back to lower the seat. If you
have difficulty getting the seat to lower, try pushing the handle back into different positions.
• If the unit is in the standing position and unoccupied, it is necessary to apply pressure to the seat of
the unit while pushing the pump handle back.
Purging The Hydraulic Actuator
The hydraulic pump on your EasyStand has a high probability of getting air trapped in the internal
workings of the unit. This is usually caused by in-transit handling and is quite normal. Please follow the
simple steps below, as manual hydraulic systems may never operate properly unless the entrapped air is
correctly purged. The unit must be at room temperature for this procedure.
1. Pump the handle until the full extension is reached.
2. Now continue pumping the handle slowly for an additional 10 strokes. This will properly purge the
system.
