Warnings
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ADJUST OR OPERATE
GEMINI SCOOTER WITHOUT READING ALL
INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
* As with any new physical activity, instruction,
practice and common sense are necessary for
successful use of the seated scooter. Your health
professional or Gemini scooter distributor can
provide instruction and a demonstration. Practice
operating the scooter to increase your skill and
confidence. Gradually increase the time you
spend using the Gemini scooter to allow your
muscles to adjust to this new activity.
* Failure to properly engage the quick-release
clamp may cause the steering column to move
while the scooter is in use and may cause you to
loose control. With the quick release clamp
properly adjusted, the handle bars will be locked
in place.
* Be sure to check that the quick-release clamp is
secure and tight before each use or injury may
result.
* Injury may result if seat post instructions are
not followed.
* Because the Gemini scooter is lightweight, use
of the hand brake while in motion may cause an
abrupt stop.
* Do not use the Gemini scooter on or near stairs
or while using mind-altering drugs or alcohol or
while suffering from dizziness.
* Do not use the Gemini scooter to pull yourself
up from a seated position. The scooter is
intended for use with a person in place on the
scooter.
* Use caution when moving from carpeted to
hard surface floors and on any rough surfaces or
when changing levels (for example, moving from
a curb to the street and back onto the sidewalk).
* Check the scooter frequently for any loose
cotter pins, clevis pins, or loose nuts or bolts and
the quick-release clamp on the T-tube. Do not
use the scooter if any pins are missing.

Operating Instructions
Congratulations on your purchase or rental of a
Gemini Scooter. This medical device is designed

foot, ankle or leg surgery or injury.

your dealer for a complete explanation of the

feature also makes transporting the scooter quick
and convenient during everyday use.

TO RAISE THE STEERING COLUMN – The
locking mechanism at the base of the steering
column has an added security pin to prevent it
from collapsing during use. Push the lever to the
left and downward at the same time to disengage
the pin and push the steering column upward
until it is in the full upright position. Now,
release the handle to engage the safety pin (the
steering column will stand in the upright position
if the safety pin is engaged). Pull the lever down
so the end of the lever is pointing towards the
ground to lock the steering column in the upright
position (rotate the lever counter clockwise to
loosen and clockwise to tighten the pressure on
the lever).
TO LOWER THE STEERING COLUMN – Pull
the lever up to release the clamp from the
steering column and push the lever forward to
disengage. Push the lever to the left and
downward at the same time to disengage the pin
and gently guide the steering column downward.
HANDLE BAR HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT –
Handle bars are raised or lowered by pushing in
the button on the steering column and resetting
to correct height. Handle bars should be set at
waist level to keep your back straight. Stand on
the side of the scooter where your pushing foot
will be. Lock the parking brake. Release the
quick-release clamp o the T-tube and adjust the
height of the hand grips to a comfortable upright
fit. Relock the quick-release clamp.
SEATED SCOOTER SEAT POST INSTALLATION
AND ADJUSTMENTS
1. Lock seat post housing in the upright position.
2. Make sure seat post housing clamp lever is
completely pushed down and secure.
3. Insert seat post and adjust seat to desired
height, line up hole on seat post housing with
the hole on seat post, insert pin and tighten seat
post clamp.
BRAKE ADJUSTMENT – The pressure of the brake
mechanism on the brake wheel should be enough so that
when the hand lever is in the fully squeezed position, the
brake wheel does not turn but it is not overly tight. The
tightness can be adjusted with the nuts at either end of
the brake cable. Turning the screw clockwise will loosen
the brake and turning the screw counter clockwise will
tighten it.
If further adjustments need to be made loosen the nut
that holds the brake cable which is located on the rear
brake assembly. Once nut is loose pull brake cable and
re-tighten nut. Other fine tune adjustments can be made
by adjusting the top and bottom screws located on the
rear brake housing.
OPERATION/MOVEMENT
• Place hands on handle bars and engage parking
brakes
• Carefully sit on padded seat
• Rest your injured leg on corresponding foot peg
located at the front of the scooter in between
front caster wheels and the steering column.
• Release the parking brakes and propel yourself
forward or backward with your pushing foot,
while keeping your non-weight bearing leg
elevated, rested and centered on the foot peg.
BRAKING – The brake is engaged by depressing the
brake lever on the handle bar. The braking wheel must
be in contact with the floor, and the brake works best
with weight on the scooter.
• To use the brake, simply squeeze the lever with
your finger tips toward the handle bar.
• To release the brake, simply release pressure on
the brake lever.
PARKING BRAKE INSTRUCTIONS
• To set the brake, squeeze brake lever and push
down on button.
• To release the brake, squeeze the brake lever
until button pops up.
If the brake fails to engage, the cable is probably too
loose or too tight.
• To correct, adjust cable with one or both screws
at each end of the cable.
• Loosen the snug screw(s) and turn the
adjustment screw(s) clockwise to loosen the
cable or counterclockwise to tighten it. When
adjustments are correct, the parking feature will
engage and the brake wheel will not turn when
attempting to do so by hand.
• Return each snug screw to its position against
the brake lever holder and cable mounting
bracket at the lower end of the cable.
If these adjustments do not correct the problem, it may
be necessary to make additional adjustments where the
brake cable is attached to the brake shoe.
• Remove the return spring from the brake shoe.
• With an Allen wrench, loosen the screw that
secures the brake cable to the brake shoe.
• Inspect the cable for fraying and replace if
needed.
• Set adjustment screws at each end of the cable
in mid-position.
• Remove slack from the cable and tighten the
screw that secures it to the shoe.
• Re-attach the return spring to the brake shoe.
