CAUTION:
Stability - Wheelchair is designed to be safe and stable as long
as center of gravity is maintained while going about normal
activities. Care must be taken while performing activities that
shift your center of gravity in the chair. Never reach so far that
require you to shift in the seat or bend over out of the chair.
When you have to reach for objects that require you to lean,
be certain front casters are pointing in a forward position that
extends the wheel base and will stabilize the chair.
Ramps - Be sure of your own capabilities, limitations and strength
before attempting to go up a ramp. Correct techniques on ramp
negotiation should be shown to you by a qualified professional.
Assistance is recommended when going up or down inclines
greater than 10o. If you must stop on an incline, avoid sudden,
abrupt movement when you resume movement. Because of
backward angle of the chair, sudden abrupt movement could
cause instability. Attempting to use the wheel lock brakes
could result in accidental locking, tipping to one side, or cause
a sudden stop. Avoid changing direction when going down an
incline, as this could result in instability of tipping over.
