WARNINGS.
Please read the instructions carefully. They contain important warnings and instructions.
TA iQ power chair is not intended for users with a weight exceeding 140 kg.
TA iQ power chair should always be turned off when getting on or off of the chair and when assisted by a
helper, so that the power chair does not accidentally move if the joystick is activated.
Do not reach into or under the power chair when the seat lift or seat tilt is activated, because there is a risk of
entrapment of hand and fingers between the mechanical parts.
Check that others, especially children, aren’t too close to the power chair when the seat lift or seat tilt is
activated.
The power chair is EMC tested. However, it is possible that the power chair can be affected by electromagnetic
fields from electronic devices, such as mobile phones. Similarly, it cannot be excluded that the chair can emit
electromagnetic fields that can affect the surroundings, such as alarm systems in stores.
Pay particular attention to late run when driving on ramps.
When the power chair's brakes are disengaged, the power chair may roll if it is on a sloping surface.
Slowing down by pressing the On /Off button creates the risk that the user's torso could fall over.
This could lead to, the user falling out of the power chair.
Slowing down in this manner should be avoided on sloping surfaces and ramps.
When forcing level differences, it is important that the power chair runs perpendicular to the obstacle in order to
minimize the risk that the power chair should tilt.
By forcing level differences with the seat tilted or hoisted there is a risk that the power chair can tip over. By
forcing level differences, it is therefore important that the seat is elevated as little as possible and is as close to
an upright position as possible to minimize this risk.
Driving on steeper slopes should be avoided where possible as this will affect the chairs natural stability, as the
risk of the power chair tipping over is increased. When driving on slopes ensure the following factors are
considered.
The seat should not be lifted, The tilt or backrest recline is not adverse to affect stability, The back cushion or
seat cushion positioning setup on the TAiQ RWD, should not be positioned behind the centre of the rear axle
point. If in doubt please contact TA Service or your local dealer, Speed is not excessive, but considered safe in
the environment.
When the power chair is used as a seat in a car, bus or similar, the power chair must always be secured with an
approved car attachment. Using 4 point car attachment the hooks must only be attached in the 4 attachment
loops on the power chairs. Fastening the hooks elsewhere will cause a high risk of danger to the user and
damage to the power chair. When using a Dahl docking system the instructions from Dahl Engineering must be
followed closely. Failure to follow instructions carefully, will cause a high risk of danger to the user and damage
to the power chair.
Avoid touching leaking batteries, as the contents can be harmful.
The temperature of some surfaces can increase and get very hot when in direct sunlight. Especially the armrest,
joystick controller, back/seat and footplate surface, care should be taken to avoid touching with bare skin.
Repairs and programming of the power chair must be performed by TA Service or a repairer who is authorized
by TA Service.
Unauthorized programming can cause the power chair to handle in a way that could cause danger to the user or
the surroundings.
Only original parts or parts that are approved by TA Service should be used.

BEFORE DRIVING:
WARNING!!
TA iQ is not intended for users with a weight exceeding 140 kg
WARNING!!
TA iQ should be turned off when entering and exiting the power chair and when assisted by a helper, so
that the power chair does not accidentally move if the joystick is activated.
CAUTION!
Smoking or use of open fire, while seated in the power chair, creates a risk of burns to the user or
upholstery.
Footplate / foot rests can be locked to facilitate entry and exit.
Before you use TA iQ, check the following:
- The power chair's speed is sufficiently low.
- Any footrests are properly mounted and locked so they do not swing out while driving.
- The seat lift is set at the lowest possible level and the seat tilt is as close to horizontal (neutral) position as
possible.
NB!
When the seat is raised above 6.5 cm, the power chair seat can only tilt 16 °. If the seat is not lifted higher
than 6.5 cm, the seat can be tilted fully (40°).
When the seat is tilted more than 15° the seat can only be raised 6.5 cm. If the seat is not tilted more than
15°, the seat can be lifted fully (30 cm)
When the seat is raised more than 6.5 cm or by tilted over 15° the chair speed automatic reduces by 15%.
WARNING!!
Do not reach into or under the power chair when the seat lift and seat tilt is activated, because there is a risk of
entrapment of hand and fingers between the mechanical parts.
WARNING!!
Be aware that others, especially children, aren’t too close to the power chair when the seat lift and seat tilt
is activated.
WARNING!!
When the control box is swung to the side or in to place there is a risk of entrapment in the swing away
bracket. Watch out for your own and the fingers of others.
CAUTION!
Place your feet on the foot rest before lowering the foot rest to avoid risk of entrapment between the foot
rests and the power chair.
CAUTION!
High speed starts can put people in the surrounding area in danger.
The first drives in TA iQ should be conducted in an area where there is plenty of room, at low speeds.

6.1 Performance check
The electronic circuits in your control system have been designed to be extremely safe and reliable. The onboard microcomputer carries out safety checks at up to 100 times per second. To supplement this safety
monitoring you should carry out the following periodic checks.
If the control system fails any of these checks, do not use the wheelchair and contact your service agent.
Daily Checks
Joystick: With the control system switched off, check that the joystick is not bent or damaged and that it returns
to the center when you push and release it. If there is a problem do not continue with the safety checks and
contact TA Service or your service agent.
Weekly Checks
Parking brake: This test should be carried out on a level floor with at least one meter clear space around the
wheelchair.
 Switch on the control system.
Check that the screen remains on after initialization and that the battery gauge is displaying a reasonable
amount of charge.
 Push the joystick slowly forwards until you hear the parking brakes operate. The chair may start to
move.
 Immediately release the joystick. You must be able to hear each parking brake operate within a few
seconds.
Repeat the test a further three times, pushing the joystick slowly backwards, left and right.
Connectors: Check all connectors are secure, properly mated and free from damage
Cables: Check condition of all cables for damage
Joystick gaiter: Check the thin rubber gaiter around the base of the joystick for damage or splitting. Check
visually only, do not handle the gaiter.
Mounting: Make sure the controller is securely fixed to your wheelchair. Do not over tighten any screws.
6.2 Swing-away bracket
A
When getting in or out of the wheelchair or if you
drive close to a table, the controller can be swung
away to the side, parallel to the armrest.
B
The control box is locked with a ball catch when it is
in drive position.
Push the inside of the control box to get it out to the
side (A), and then drag the controller backwards to
get it parallel with the armrest (B)

6.3 Getting in and out of the wheelchair
! Before getting in and out of the wheelchair, make
sure that the wheelchair is turned off.
If the user can transfer itself, lower the tilt and the
lift to the lowest position.
For transferring from the front tilt the footplate up
figure 1
Figure 1
For sideways transfer it is possible to lift the armrest
up (both sides can be lifted)
Push on the release button on the bracket to be able
lift the armrest – figure 2
Figure 2
The armrest can be lifted up along the back rest
- figure 3
Figure 3
If the user shall be transferred by lift, it is an
advantage to tilt the seat and the back to get the
pelvis all into the back rest – figure 4

WHILE DRIVING:
TA iQ's driving characteristics including: braking, maximum speed and acceleration can be set to suit the users
need.
Setting the chair's driving characteristics is performed by TA Services A/S.
7.1 Speed and profiles
TA iQ is switched on by a light pressure on the Power button.
The power chair's speed is increased by pressing the speed-up button.
The power chair's speed is decreased by pressing the speed-down button.
Driving profiles are selected by pressing the profile button, if they are
programmed.
Profiles can be customized by TA. Service and are individual.
7.2 Driving distance
As in all motorized vehicles are driving distance depends on various factors:
Speed
Approximate driving distance at 20° Celsius on straight flat road and batteries
discharged/charged 20 times:
Approximately 35-40 km at 8 km/h
Approximately 30-35 km at 10 km/h
About 25-30 km at 12 km/h
Theoretical driving distance measured according to ISO 7176-4: 2008 at max.
speed (12 km/h): 28.15 km
Driving style. If you drive with big or small deflection on the joystick. Many
start and stop.
Terrain. Is there, for example, many hills, the ground is slippery, soft or hard,
etc.
Temperature. The colder the ambient temperature is, the less power has the
batteries. The colder it is the lower driving distance you may have.
The batteries installed at the factory have more power after the first 15-20
discharge cycles. So the batteries have become fully effective after about 2030 days.
Is there, for example, installed additional equipment: respirator, moisturize or
other equipment that uses electricity, it will also have a negative impact on the
driving distance.
The chairs electrical functions, electric lift, electric tilt, electric back recline,
electric legs, phone ect. also, though to a lesser degree, influence on the
driving distance.
11
7.3 Braking.
The chair brakes by releasing the control stick, so it returns to the vertical position.
It is possible to adjust how fast the chair is slowing down and thus reduce any late run on the chair. This
adjustment is carried out by TA Service.
At a short late run, braking will be experienced very sharp.
WARNING!!
Pay particular attention to late run when driving on ramps.
When driving on ramps let go of the control stick before you reach the ramps leading edge.
7.4 Mechanical disengaging the brakes.
The electric brake can be disengaged if the chair needs
to be manually towed.
Figure 1
This is done by twisting the brake handles away from
the power chair towards the wheels. Figure 1
When the brakes are disengaged the power chair will
“bip” and write “PM Brake error” in the display to
warn that the brakes are disengaged while the power
chair is ON.
Brake disengages
by turning in the
direction as the
arrow
When the electric brake is disengaged the power chair cannot be maneuvered with the control stick. You
have to turn the brake handles back towards the power chair, and then turn OFF/ON the power chair.
WARNING!!
When the power chair brakes are disengaged, the chair may roll if it is on a sloping surface.
7.5 Emergency brake.
The power chair emergency brakes by pressing the ON / OFF
button.
This brake method results in a very abrupt deceleration and should only be performed in an emergency and
only if the user of the power chair is prepared.
WARNING!!
Slowing down by pressing the On /Off button creates the risk that the user's torso could fall over.
This could lead to, the user falling out of the power chair.
Slowing down in this manner should be avoided on sloping surfaces and ramps.
7.6 Force of obstacles.
TA iQ can climb obstacles, making it able to run over doorsteps and the like.
At very steep increases may inlet and a certain speed be necessary.
In the interest of the power chair's stability by forcing different levels it is important that the seat is elevated as
little as possible and is as close to an upright position as possible to minimize this risk.
Never exceed the max of height kerb as described under TECHINCHAL DATA SHEET
WARNING!!
12
By forcing level differences, it is important that the power chair runs perpendicular to the obstacle in
order to minimize the risk that the power chair should tilt.
WARNING!!
By forcing level differences with the seat tilted or hoisted there is a risk that the power chair can tip over.
By forcing level differences, it is highly important that the seat is elevated as little as possible and is as
close to an upright position as possible to minimize this risk.
7.7 Driving on slopes.
Driving on sloping surfaces should be carried out forwards and at a slow pace.
Never exceed the max safe slope as described under TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
WARNING!!
Driving on slopes should be avoided because a slope to the side can cause the power chair to tip over.
When driving on slopes, the seat should not be lifted to keep the power chair stable.
7.8 Surfaces
TA iQ is fitted with a pattern tread on the big drive wheel for best grip. If the tread is worn it will affect the grip
on the surface.
When driving on uneven surfaces, pay extra attention (like on sand, ice/show, grass etc.) it can have an affect on
the stability and the steering.
If a tyre without a tread pattern is used, it will have the same effect as if the tread is worn.
7.9 Driving in darkness
TA iQ can be acquired with lights as an option. Drive only in darkness when light in the front and back are
applied or as per the applicable national regulations.
8
AFTER DRIVING.
Always leave the chair off and put on lowest speed.
NB! Leaving the chair turned on will draw power from batteries, with reduced remaining driving
distance to follow.
