SAFETY/HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS
“Safety and Handling” of the wheelchair requires the close attention of the wheelchair user
as well as the assistant. This manual points out the most common procedures and techniques involved in the safe operation and maintenance of the wheelchair. It is important to
practice and master these safe techniques until you are comfortable in maneuvering around
the frequently encountered architectural barriers.
Use this information only as a “basic” guide. The techniques that are discussed on the
following pages have been used successfully by many.
Individual wheelchair users often develop skills to deal with daily living activities that may
differ from those described in this manual. Invacare recognizes and encourages each individual to try what works best for him/her in overcoming architectural obstacles that they
may encounter. However, ALL WARNINGS and CAUTIONS given in this manual MUST be
heeded. Techniques in this manual are a starting point for the new wheelchair user and
assistant with “safety” as the most important consideration for all.
STABILITY AND BALANCE
WARNING
ALWAYS wear your seat/chest positioning strap. Inasmuch as the SEAT/
CHEST POSITIONING STRAP is an option on this wheelchair (You may
order with or without the Seat/Chest Positioning Strap), Invacare strongly
recommends ordering the Seat/Chest Positioning Strap as an additional
safeguard for the wheelchair user.
To assure stability and proper operation of your wheelchair, you must at all times maintain
proper balance. Your wheelchair has been designed to remain upright and stable during
normal daily activities as long as you do not move beyond the center of gravity.
Virtually all activities which involve movement in the wheelchair have an effect on the center
of gravity. Invacare recommends using seat/chest positioning straps for additional safety while
involved in activities that shift your weight.
DO NOT lean forward out of the wheelchair any further than the length of the armrests.
Make sure the casters are pointing in the forward position whenever you lean forward. This
can be achieved by advancing the wheelchair and then reversing it in a straight line.
COPING WITH EVERYDAY OBSTACLES
Coping with the irritation of everyday obstacles can be alleviated somewhat by learning how to
manage your wheelchair. Keep in mind your center of gravity to maintain stability and balance.
A NOTE TO WHEELCHAIR ASSISTANTS
When assistance to the wheelchair user is required, remember to use good body mechanics.
Keep your back straight and bend your knees whenever tipping the wheelchair or traversing
curbs, or other impediments.
9000 Series

Part No. 1056953
GENERAL GUIDELINES
SECTION 1
WARNING
Always verify that hand grips on the rear cane are secure PRIOR to use when an
assistant is used to propel or lift the chair. Check for any signs of looseness or
deterioration and if found, contact a qualified technician. DO NOT attempt to
move the wheelchair by pulling on the hand grips if they are found to be unsecure
or have deteriorated.
9000 XT RECLINER ONLY - DO NOT use the spreader bar to lift the
wheelchair.
Also, be aware of detachable parts such as the spreader bar (9000 XT RECLINER ONLY),
armrests or legrests. These must NEVER be used to move the wheelchair or as lifting
supports, as they may be inadvertently released, resulting in possible injury to the user and/
or assistant(s).
When learning a new assistance technique, have an experienced assistant help you before
attempting it alone.
PERCENTAGE OF WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION
WARNING
DO NOT attempt to reach objects if you have to move forward in the seat
or pick them up from the floor by reaching down between your knees.
The seat depth, back height/angle, seat angle, size/position of the front
casters, size/position of the rear wheels, anti-tipper model, as well as the
user condition directly relate to the stability of the wheelchair. Any
change to one (1) or any combination of the ten (10) may cause the
wheelchair to decrease in stability. These adjustments MUST be performed by a qualified technician.
Many activities require the wheelchair owner to reach, bend and transfer in and out of the
wheelchair. These movements will cause a
CENTER OF
change to the normal balance, the center of
GRAVITY
gravity, and the weight distribution of the
wheelchair. To determine and establish your
particular safety limits, practice bending,
reaching and transferring activities in several
combinations in the presence of a qualified
healthcare professional BEFORE attempting
active use of the wheelchair.
UNOCCUPIED
OCCUPIED
Proper positioning is essential for your
safety. When reaching, leaning, or bending
forward, it is important to use the front casters as a tool to maintain stability and balance.

REACHING, LEANING AND BENDING - FORWARD
GENERAL GUIDELINES
WARNING
DO NOT attempt to reach objects
if you have to move forward in the
seat or pick them up from the floor
by reaching down between your
knees.
Position the front casters so that they are
extended as far forward as possible and
engage wheel locks.
REACHING, LEANING - BACKWARDS
WARNING
DO NOT lean over the top of the
back upholstery. This will change
your center of gravity and may
cause you to tip over.
Position wheelchair as close as possible to
the desired object. Point front casters
forward to create the longest possible
wheelbase. Reach back only as far as your
arm will extend without changing your
sitting position.
TIPPING
WARNING
DO NOT tip the wheelchair without assistance.
When tipping the wheelchair, an assistant should grasp the back of the wheelchair on a nonremovable (non-detachable) part. Inform the wheelchair occupant before tipping the wheelchair and remind him/her to lean back. Be sure the occupant’s feet and hands are clear of all
wheels and/or pinch points.
