1.6 Safety rules
 To prevent injury and/or damage to your wheelchair, make sure that no objects and/or
body parts are caught in the spokes of the driving wheels.
 The parking brakes should be applied before getting into and out of the wheelchair.
 When getting into and out of the wheelchair, do not stand on the footplates. These
should be folded up beforehand, or the footrests should be swung completely outwards
out of the way.
 Investigate the effects of shifting the centre of gravity on the behaviour of the
wheelchair, for example on up or down gradients, on laterally sloping ground, or when
overcoming obstacles. Obtain support from an attendant.
 If you want to pick up something (lying in front of, on the side, or to the rear of the
wheelchair), you should not lean too far out to avoid tipping over.
 When moving through doors, arches, etc. ensure that there is enough room at the sides
so that you do not get your hands or arms caught or crushed and that there is no
damage to the wheelchair.
 Only use your wheelchair according to regulations. For example, avoid uncontrolled
rolling against obstacles (steps, kerbs, doorframes, etc) or dropping down from ledges.
The manufacturer cannot assume liability for damage caused by overloading, collision
or other improper use.
 Stairs may only be negotiated when aided by another person. If furnishings like driveon, ramps or lifts are available, use them.
 When moving on the public highway, you are subject to the rules of the road.
 When driving your wheelchair, you should not be under the influence of alcohol or
medicine as in the case of driving other vehicles. This also applies to indoor driving.
 When travelling outdoors, adapt your driving to weather and traffic conditions.
 When transporting the wheelchair, never pick it up by grasping movable parts
(armrests, footrests, etc.)
 To be better visible when driving in the dark, wear the brightest possible clothing or
clothes with reflectors, and check that the reflectors mounted on the sides and rear of
the wheelchair are clearly visible.
 Be careful when using possible causes of fire such as cigarettes since they may set the
seat and back covers alight.
 Never exceed the maximum load of 120 kg.

2.13 Use of the wheelchair as seat in a motor vehicle
WARNING
 The wheelchair has passed the crash of ISO 7176-19: 2008 and, as such, has been
designed and tested for use only as forward-facing seat in a motor vehicle.
 The wheelchair's pelvic belt alone is not suited as an occupant restraint belt.
The wheelchair is tested using the four-point strap-tie system and a 3-point occupantrestraint system. Whenever feasible, use the seat of the vehicle and store the wheelchair
in the cargo area.
Steps to secure the wheelchair in a motor vehicle:
1. Check that the vehicle is equipped with a suitable wheelchair tie down and occupantrestraint system, conform ISO 10542.
2. Check that the components of the wheelchair tie down and occupant restraint
system are not frayed, contaminated, damaged or broken.
3. If equipped with an adjustable seat and/or back tilt, make sure that the wheelchair
user is sitting as upright as possible. If the user's condition prevents this, a risk
assessment should be done to evaluate the user's safety during transit.
4. Remove all mounted accessories such as trays and respiratory equipment, and
secure them in a safe place.
5. Position the wheelchair facing forward in the travelling direction, centrally between
the tie-down rails mounted in the floor of the vehicle.
6. Mount the front securement straps according to the instructions of the strap-system
manufacturer at the indicated place. (figure 1) This place is marked on the
wheelchair with a symbol. (figure 2)
7. Roll back the wheelchair until the front straps are tight.
