V. GENERAL WARNINGS
A. WEIGHT LIMITS
E. KNOW YOUR CHAIR
WARNING
WARNING
Every wheelchair is different. Take the time to learn the feel of this chair
before you begin riding. Start slowly, with easy, smooth strokes. If you are
used to a different chair, you may use too much force and tip over. If you
use too much force, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or loss of control
may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.
NEVER exceed the weight limit specified by Sunrise Medical. The weight
capacity provided by your manufacturer is for the combined weight of a
rider and items carried using on-board storage. If you do exceed the weight
limit, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or loss of control may occur and
cause severe injury to the rider or others.
Weight Capacities
F. REDUCE THE RISK OF AN ACCIDENT
Quickie IRIS - 250lbs/(113Kg).
Zippie IRIS
- 225lbs/(102kg).
Quickie IRIS HD - 350lbs/(159kg).
WARNING
1. BEFORE riding, you should be trained in the safe use of this chair by
your health care advisor.
2. Practice bending, reaching and transfers until you know the limit of
your ability. Have someone help you until you know what can cause
a fall or tip-over and how to avoid doing so.
3. Be aware that you must develop your own methods for safe use
best suited to your level of function and ability.
4. NEVER try a new maneuver on your own until you are sure you
can do it safely.
5. Get to know the areas where you plan to use your chair. Look for
hazards and learn how to avoid them.
6. Sunrise recommends using anti-tip tubes in evey circumstance.
B. INTENDED USE
The Quickie and Zippie IRIS Series of wheelchair's intended use is to provide mobility to persons limited to a sitting position.
WARNING
DO NOT use this device for purposes other than what is intended by the
manufacturer
1. The wheelchiar is not designed for weight training and is unsafe for
use as a seat while weight training. Weight training from the wheelchair substantially changes the stability of the chair and may cause
tipping.
2. DO NOT stand on the frame of the wheelchair.
3. NEVER allow someone to stand on your chair or use it as a step
ladder.
4. This chair is designed for a single rider only.
5. Unauthorized modifications and use of parts or accessories not supplied or approved by Sunrise Medical may change the chair structure. This will void the warranty and may cause a safety hazard. If
the warning is ignored, damage to your chair, and the potential
severe injury of the person using the chair for unintended purposes
can occur.
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.
G. SAFETY CHECKLIST
WARNING
Before you assist a rider, be sure to read all warnings contained in this
manual, and follow all instructions that apply. Be aware that after consulting
a healthcare advisor, you will need to learn safe and proven body mechanics to use and create assistive methods best suited to your abilities.
Before Each Use Of Your Chair:
1. Make sure the chair rolls easily and that all parts work smoothly.
Check for noise, vibration, or a change in ease of use. (They may
indicate low tire pressure, loose fasteners, or damage to your
chair).
2. Immediately repair any problem. Your authorized supplier can help
you find and correct the problem.
3. Check to see that both quick-release rear axles are locked. When
locked, the axle button will “pop out” fully. If not locked, the wheel
may come off and cause you to fall.
4. If your chair has anti-tip tubes, lock them in place.
D. ACCESSORIES
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.

approved by Sunrise Medical may change the chair structure. This will void
the warranty and may cause a safety hazard.
Some problems that may occur, but are not limited to:
1. Incorrect Wheels and/or tires that put the rider at risk of a fall or
tip-over.
2. Adding a component to the frame, changing the structural integrity of
the chair.
3. Any modification or disassembly can potentially create an unsafe situation where rider and/or attendant are put at risk.
WARNING
1.
If you modify or adjust this chair, it may increase the risk of a
tip-over UNLESS you make other adjustments as well.
2.
Consult your authorized supplier BEFORE you modify or adjust
your chair.
3.
We recommend that you use anti-tip tubes until you adapt to
the change, and are sure you are not at risk to tip over.
4.
Unauthorized modifications by the end-user, dealer or any other
individual, including the use of parts not supplied or approved
by Sunrise may change the chair structure. This will void the
warranty and may cause a safety hazard.

V. GENERAL WARNINGS
I. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
WARNING

1. NEVER let anyone sit in this chair while in a moving vehicle.
a. ALWAYS move the rider to an approved vehicle seat.
b. ALWAYS secure the rider with proper motor vehicle restraints.
2. In an accident or sudden stop the rider may be thrown from the
chair. Wheelchair seat belts will not prevent this, and further injury
may result from the belts or straps.
3. NEVER transport this chair in the front seat of a vehicle. It may shift
and interfere with the driver.
4. ALWAYS secure this chair so that it cannot roll or shift.
5. Do not use any chair that has been involved in a motor vehicle accident. The frame and/or components may have been changed due to
the accident. Such items could be, but are not limited to: bent, loosened, and/or broken components that were subjected to an impact.
WARNING
1. Use extra care if you must ride your chair on a
wet or slick surface. If you are in doubt, ask for
help.
2. Contact with water or excess moisture may cause your chair to
rust or corrode. Avoid all extreme weather situations if possible.
a. Do not use your chair in a shower, pool or other body of
water. The chair tubing and parts are not water-tight and may

J. TERRAIN
WARNING
1. Based on ANSI/RESNA testing, Sunrise Medical recommends the
use of a caster wheel with a minimum diameter of 5”, if the wheelchair will be overcoming obstacles up to 1/2” on a regular basis.
2. Your chair is designed for use on firm, even surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, indoor flooring, and carpets.
3. Do not operate your chair in sand, loose soil, or over rocky terrain.
4. If you use your chair on terrain that is rougher than described
above there is a danger that screws and bolts will loosen prematurely, and that damage to wheels or axles could put the rider at
risk of a fall, tip-over, or loss of control.

Front Transit hook
Look for this symbol on your wheelchair. It indicates wheelchair securement points which conform to ANSI/RESNA (1998)
V.1 - Section 19 and/or ANSI/RESNA (2012) V.4 WC-19. For
more Transit related information, see the “Transit Securement
Supplement” included with your chair.
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.
M. WHEN YOU NEED HELP
K. STREET USE
WARNING
For The Rider: Make sure that each person who helps you reads and follows all warnings and instructions that apply.
WARNING
1. This product is not intended for street use.
2. Avoid streets whenever possible.
3. Obey and follow all legal pedestrian pathways, and laws that apply to
pedestrians.
4. Be alert to the danger of motor vehicles in parking lots, or if you
must cross a road.
For Attendants:
1. Work with the rider’s doctor, nurse or therapist to learn safe methods best suited to your abilities and those of the rider.
2. Tell the rider what you plan to do, and explain what you expect the
rider to do. This will put the rider at ease and reduce the risk of an
accident.
3. Make sure the chair has push handles. They provide secure points
for you to hold the rear of the chair to prevent a fall or tip-over.
Check to make sure push handle grips will not rotate or slip off.
4. To prevent injury to your back, use good posture and proper body
mechanics. When you lift or support the rider or tilt the chair, bend
your knees slightly and keep your back as upright and straight as you
can.
5. Remind the rider to lean back when you tilt the chair backward.
6. When you descend a curb or single step, slowly lower the chair in
one easy movement. Do not let the chair drop the last few inches
to the ground. This may damage the chair or injure the rider.
7. To avoid tipping, or getting hung up on objects, unlock and rotate
anti-tip tubes up, and out of the way.
8. Whenever you aren’t attending the wheelchiar, ALWAYS use the
wheel-lock to secure the rear wheels, and lock anti-tip tubes in
place if you must leave the rider alone, even for a moment. This will
reduce the risk of a tip over or loss of control of the chair.
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others
L. MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY
1
2
If possible and feasible, the rider should transfer to the Original Equipment
Manufacturer vehicle seat and use the OEM vehicle restraint.
Sunrise Medical does provide a WC-19 Wheelchair Tie-Down and
Occupant Restraint System, otherwise called a Transit Option. To Identify
whether your wheelchair has been manufactured with the Transit Option
installed, look for four points of securement. Two Front points (A), and
two rear points (B). These points are recognized by the securement point
decal which can be found on or near the securement points. If your
wheelchair is equipped with the Transit Option please review the Transit
Securement supplement that was provided with the wheelchair for additional information and instructions. You can request a copy from your
authorized supplier, or Sunrise medical at 1-800-333-4000 if you don’t have
it.

If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.

VI. SAFETY WARNINGS: FALLS & TIP-OVERS
A. CENTER OF BALANCE
6. If your chair has anti-tip tubes, do not go over an obstacle without
help.
7. Keep both of your hands on the handrims as you go over an obstacle.
8. Never push or pull on an object (such as furniture or a doorjamb)
to propel your chair.
WARNING
The point where this chair will tip forward, back, or to the side depends on
its center of gravity and stability. How your chair is set up, the options you
select and the changes you make may affect the risk of a fall or tip-over.
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.
1. The Most Important Adjustment is:
a. The position of the rear wheels. The more you move the rear
wheels forward, the more likely your chair will tip over backward.
b. The position of the carriage.
2. The Center of Balance is also Affected by:
a. A change in the set-up of your chair, including:
• The seat height and seat angle.
• Backrest angle.
b. A change in your body position, posture or weight distribution.
c. Riding your chair on a ramp or slope.
d. The use of a back pack or other options, and the location and
amount of added weight can change the balance of your chair,
3. To Reduce The Risk Of An Accident:
a. Consult your doctor, nurse or therapist to find out what axle
and caster position is best for you.
b. Consult your authorized dealer, BEFORE you modify or adjust
this chair. Be aware that you may need to make other changes
to correct the center of balance.
c. Have someone help you until you know the balance points of
your chair and how to avoid a tip-over.
d. Use anti-tip tubes.
D. FRONT CASTER LIFT
WARNING
Front caster lift can occur when the front wheels, ordinarily in contact
with the ground, are either intentionally, or unintentionally caused to lift
from the ground while the rear wheels remain in contact. Pitch control
(partial or full) should NEVER be attempted without consulting your
healthcare advisor and making sure that anti-tips are installed.
If you fail to heed this warning, you are at a high risk of damage to your
chair, a fall, tip-over or loss of control that may occur and cause severe
injury to the rider or others.
E. REACHING OR LEANING
WARNING
If you reach or lean it will affect the center of balance of your chair. This
may cause you to fall or tip over. When in doubt, ask for help or use a
device to extend your reach.
1. NEVER reach or lean if you must shift your weight sideways or rise up
off the seat.
2. NEVER reach or lean if you must move forward in your seat to do
so. Always keep your buttocks in contact with the backrest.
3. NEVER reach with both hands (you may not be able to catch yourself to prevent a fall if the chair tips).
4. NEVER reach or lean to the rear unless your chair has anti-tip
tubes locked in place.
5. DO NOT reach or lean over the top of the seat back. This may
damage one or both backrest tubes and cause you to fall.
6. If You Must Reach Or Lean:
a. Do not lock the rear wheels. This creates a tip point and
makes a fall or tip-over more likely.
b. Do not put pressure on the footrests.
c. Move your chair as close as you can to the object you wish to
reach, then back up alongside it. Backing up will rotate the
casters forward.
d. Do not try to pick up an object from the floor by reaching
down between your knees. You are less likely to tip if you
reach to the side of your chair.
e. Rotate the front casters until they are as far forward as possible. This makes the chair more stable.
f. Firmly grasp a rear wheel or an armrest with one hand. This
will help to prevent a fall if the chair tips.
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.
B. DRESSING OR CHANGING CLOTHES
WARNING
Your weight may shift if you dress or change clothes while seated in chair.
To reduce the risk of a fall or tip-over:
1. Rotate the front casters until they are as far forward as possible.
This makes the chair more stable.
2. Lock anti-tip tubes in place. (If your chair does not have anti-tip
tubes, back it up against a wall and lock both rear wheels).
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.
C. OBSTACLES
WARNING
Riding over curbs or obstacles can cause tipping and serious bodily harm.
If you have any doubt that you can safely cross any curb or obstacle,
ALWAYS ASK FOR HELP. Be aware of your riding skills and personal limitations. Develop new skills only with the help of a companion.
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.
To avoid the risk of traversing obstacles:
1. Keep a lookout for danger – scan the area well ahead of your chair
as you ride.
2. Make sure the floor areas where you live and work are level and free
of obstacles.
3. Remove or cover threshold strips between rooms.
4. Install a ramp at entry or exit doors. Make sure there is not a drop
off at the bottom of the ramp.
5. To Help Correct Your Center Of Balance:
a.
Lean your upper body FORWARD slightly as you go UP over
an obstacle.
b.
Press your upper body BACKWARD as you go DOWN from
a higher to a lower level.
F. MOVING BACKWARD
WARNING
Use extra care when you move your chair backward. Your chair is most
stable when you propel yourself forward. You may lose control or tip over
if one of the rear wheels hits an object and stops rolling.
1. Propel your chair slowly and smoothly.
2. If your chair has anti-tip tubes, make sure to lock them in place.
3. Stop often and check to be sure your path is clear.
If you fail to heed these warnings, damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or
loss of control may occur and cause severe injury to the rider or others.

WARNING
Whenever possible, avoid riding on a slope, which includes a ramp or sidehill. This will change the center of balance of your chair. Your chair is less stable and more difficult to manuever. when it is at an
angle. When moving up a hill, anti-tip tubes may not prevent a fall or tip-over.
1. DO NOT use your chair on a slope steeper than 6°.
2. ALWAYS go as straight up and as straight down as you can. (Do not “cut the corner” on a slope
or ramp.)
3. DO NOT turn or change direction on a slope.
4. When you have to use a ramp, always stay in the CENTER of the ramp. Make sure ramp is wide
enough that you have no risk of going off the edge.
5. DO NOT stop on a steep slope. If you stop, you may lose control of your chair.
6. NEVER use rear wheel locks to try to slow or stop your chair. This is likely to cause your chair
to veer out of control.
7. ALWAYS be aware of:
a. Wet or slippery surfaces.
b. A change in grade on a slope (or a lip, bump or depression). These may cause a fall or tipover.
c. A drop-off at the bottom of a slope or ramp. A drop-off as small as 3/4 inch can stop a
front caster and cause the chair to tip forward.
8. To Reduce The Risk Of A Fall Or Tip-Over:
a. Lean or press your body UPHILL. This will help adjust for the change in the center of balance caused by the slope or sidehill.
b. Keep pressure on the handrims to control your speed on a down slope. If you go too fast
you may lose control.
c. ASK FOR HELP any time you are in doubt.
9. Ramps At Home & Work– For your safety, ramps at home and work must meet all legal
requirements for your area:
a. AVOID A DROP-OFF
Make sure there is a section at the top or bottom to smooth out the transition.
b. ALWAYS stay in the center of the ramp and control your speed.
If you fail to heed these warnings damage to your chair, a fall, tip-over or loss of control may occur and
can possibly cause severe injury to the rider or others.

it is moving. Doing so may cause a fall or tip-over
2. To keep the rear wheels from rolling, always set both rear wheel
locks when you transfer to or from your chair.
3. Low pressure in a rear tire may cause the wheel lock on that side
to slip and may allow the wheel to turn when you do not expect it.
4. Make sure lock arms embed in tires at least 1/8 inch when locked. If
you fail to do so, the locks may not work.
1. Make sure the rider does not slide down in the wheelchair seat. If
this occurs, the rider may suffer chest compression or suffocate due
to pressure from the belts.
2. The belts must be snug, but must not be so tight that they interfere
with breathing. You should be able to slide your open hand, flat,
between the belt and the rider.
3. A pelvic wedge or a similar device can help keep the rider from sliding down in the seat. Consult with the rider’s doctor, nurse or
therapist to find out if the rider needs such a device.
4. Use positioning belts only with a rider who can cooperate. Make
sure the rider can easily remove the belts in an emergency.
5. NEVER Use Positioning Belts:
a. As a patient restraint. A restraint requires a doctor’s order.

WARNING
The owner of this chair is responsible for makiing sure that it has been setup and adjusted by a trained
service professional under the advice of a healthcare advisor. Service or adjustments should only be done
with the advice of a healthcare professional. Always use parts and accessories that have been
recommended and approved by Sunrise Medical when servicing this chair. Service and/or adjustments
that require the use of tools, should only be done by an authorized supplier under the advice of a
healthcare professional.
A. DEALER SERVICE INTRODUCTION
1. At least once per year, this chair should have a complete inspection, safety check, and regular service
made by an authorized dealer.
2. If you have discovered a worn, bent, or damaged part, repair or replace them with recommended parts
before returning this chair to service..
3. All major maintenance and repair work should be done by the authorized dealer.
B. CRITICAL MAINTENANCE TIPS
1. Torque settings:
A torque setting is the optimum tightening which should be made on a particular fastener. It is important to
use proper torque settings where specified. When not specified, torque settings should be 60 in-lbs
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED
1. Imperial Hex key set
2. Metric Hex key set
3. Imperial Open-end Wrench set
4. Metric Open-end Wrench set
5. Torque wrench
6. Imperial Hex bit Socket set
7. Metric Hex bit Socket set
8. Phillips and Flat screwdrivers
2. Dealer Service and Adjustment Reference materials:
Go to www.sunrisemedical.com for parts manuals, instruction sheets, and instructional videos that will aid in the
repair of the Quickie/Zippie Family of wheelchairs.
C. CLEANING
1. Paint Finish
a. Clean the painted surfaces with mild soap or detergent.
b. Protect the paint with a coat of non-abrasive auto wax.
2. Axles and Moving Parts
a. Clean around axles and moving parts with a slightly damp (not wet) cloth.
b. Wipe off or blow away any fluff, dust or dirt on axles or moving parts.
c. DO NOT USE 3 in 1 oil, or WD-40 ® for lubrication. Only use Teflon based Lubricant when working
on this wheelchair.
D. REAR AXLE
1
A
Tight axle sleeves should be maintained for proper performance of the wheelchair.
a. To adjust the axle (A) you will need a 3/4" wrench (B) to turn the outside axle nuts (C).
b. You will also need a 1/2" wrench to hold the the opposite end of the axle (D), and prevent the axle from
turning, while you are adjusting the nut.
c. Turn the outside axle nut clockwise to tighten.
d. There should only be zero to ten thousandths of an inch (.010") of play.
2. Moving the Rear Axle for Weight Distribution
Weight distribution between the front and rear wheels is primarily adjusted by moving the rear axles forward
or rearward on the frame. Moving the axles REARWARD provides better forward and rearward tipping stability. Moving the axles FORWARD shifts more of the rider’s weight onto the REAR wheels, providing the following benefits: the front end of the wheelchair becomes lighter, thus reducing the turning effort, and with a shorter wheelbase the turning radius is reduced.
CAUTION - Moving the Rear axles can effect the stability of the device ALWAYS check stability with the rider
before putting the chair into service
IMPORTANT NOTE– The axle adjustment on each side of the chair should be equal.
NOTE– Use a torque setting of 120 in.-lbs. When setting-up the axle plate.
NOTE– The frame must be kept horizontal when height adjustments are made. Refer to matrix in the ordering
guide for proper setting.

EE. ATTENDANT WHEEL LOCK INSTALLATION
56
Remove wheels from chair.
2. Attach Mount bracket/cable assembly to axle strut tube using 1/4" x 1-3/4" bolt (item 1) with nut and
washers.
3. If push-to-lock wheel locks are already installed, remove the push-to-lock assemblies by removing the M6
bolts (item 2) and adjustment nuts (item 3), leaving the slide plates mounted on the chair, and go to step
5. If there are no wheel locks mounted already, proceed with step 4.
4. Attach Wheel Lock Slide Plates to Roller Assembly on each side of the chair using 1/4" hex bolts (item
4) and Mounting Block (item 5). If axle of rear wheel is above the base frame tube, orient the slide plates
upward. If the axle of the rear wheel is below the base frame tube, orient the plates downward. Plate
may be flipped forward or reversed as needed for different wheel sizes.
5. Attach the left and right Remote Lock Assemblies (item 6) to the slide plates using the Attendant Wheel
Lock Spacer Blocks (item 7), M6 x 60 screws (item 2), lock washers (item 8), and Wheel Lock
Adjustment Nuts (item 3). The adjustment nuts marked “R” and “L” are to be mounted to the right and
left side of the chair respectively. The smaller protruding oval shape on the nuts should slide inside of the
slot in the slide plate. Do not tighten bolts. Slide the Remote Lock Assemblies as far forward as they will
go.
6. Re-install wheels and slide the Remote Lock Assemblies rearward until the friction block of the remote
lock is approximately 1/4" (6mm) away from the tire when unlocked. If the lock cannot be adjusted to
this position, you will need to adjust the position of the slide plate until it can be adjusted as stated.
Once remote locks are properly positioned, tighten bolts.
7. Attach cables to Remote Lock Assemblies by sliding the stud at the end of the cable into the slot in the
Remote Lock Assembly. Pull back on the cable sheath and slide the end of the cable sheath into the
pocket on the Attendant Wheel Lock Spacer Block (item 3) as shown. Be sure that the cables are routed
away from all moving parts. Attach the cables into place on the chair with zip-ties provided.
8. Adjust the cable adjustment screws (item 9) as necessary to ensure that the wheel locks can get to their
fully extended position when the pedal is engaged. Position of the Remote Lock Assembly may need to
be fine tuned to optimize the force needed to engage the pedal, depending on tire type. If excessive
force is needed to engage the pedal, cable life may be reduced. Once proper adjustment is attained, lock
cable adjustment screw in position by tightening jam nuts against mounting block.
