STRAP is an option on this wheelchair (you may order with or without the seat positioning strap), Invacare strongly recommends ordering the seat positioning strap as an additional safeguard for the wheelchair user.

ALWAYS use the handrims for self-propulsion. Inasmuch as the HANDRIMS are an option on this wheelchair (you may order with or without the handrims), Invacare strongly recommends ordering the handrims as an additional safeguard for the wheelchair user.

WHEELS AND TIRE PRESSURE

WARNING

Make sure the detent pin and locking pins of the quick/quad-release axle are fully released BEFORE operating the wheelchair.

The locking pins MUST be protruding past the inside of the rear wheel axle bushing for a positive lock.

DO NOT use your wheelchair unless it has the proper tire pressure (p.s.i.). DO NOT overinflate the tires. Failure to follow these suggestions may cause the tire to explode and cause bodily harm.

Replacement of a pneumatic tire or tube MUST be performed by a qualified technician.

WEIGHT TRAINING

WARNING

Invacare DOES NOT recommend the use of its wheelchairs as a weight training apparatus. Invacare wheelchairs have NOT been designed or tested as a seat for any kind of weight training. If occupant uses said wheelchair as a weight training apparatus,

Invacare shall NOT be liable for bodily injury and the warranty will be void.

SECTION 1 GENERAL GUIDELINES

SAFETY/HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS

“Safety and Handling” of the wheelchair requires the close attention of the wheelchair user as well as the assistant. This section of the manual points out the most common procedures and techniques involved in the safe operation and maintenance of the wheelchair. It is important to practice and master these safe techniques until you are comfortable in maneuvering around the frequently encountered architectural barriers.

Use this information only as a “basic” guide. The techniques that are discussed on the following pages have been used successfully by many.

Individual wheelchair users often develop skills to deal with daily living activities that may differ from those described in this manual. Invacare recognizes and encourages each individual to try what works best for him/her in overcoming architectural obstacles that they may encounter, however ALL WARNINGS and CAUTIONS given in this manual MUST be followed.

Techniques in this manual are a starting point for the new wheelchair user and assistant with

“safety” as the most important consideration for all.

STABILITY AND BALANCE

WARNING

ALWAYS wear your seat positioning strap. Inasmuch as the SEAT

POSITIONING STRAP is an option on this wheelchair (You may order with or without the seat positioning strap), Invacare strongly recommends ordering the seat positioning strap as an additional safeguard for the wheelchair user.

Anti-tippers MUST BE attached at all times. Inasmuch as the ANTI-TIPPERS are an option on this wheelchair (You may order with or without the anti-tippers),

Invacare strongly recommends ordering the anti-tippers as an additional safeguard for the wheelchair user.

To assure stability and proper operation of your wheelchair, you must at all times maintain proper balance. Your wheelchair has been designed to remain upright and stable during normal daily activities as long as you do not move beyond the center of gravity.

Virtually all activities which involve movement in the wheelchair have an effect on the center of gravity. Invacare recommends using seat/chest positioning straps for additional safety while involved in activities that shift your weight.

DO NOT lean forward out of the wheelchair any further than the length of the armrests. Make sure the casters are pointing in the forward position whenever you lean forward. This can be achieved by advancing the wheelchair and then reversing it in a straight line.

COPING WITH EVERYDAY OBSTACLES

Coping with the irritation of everyday obstacles can be alleviated somewhat by learning how to manage your wheelchair. Keep in mind your center of gravity to maintain stability and balance.

A NOTE TO WHEELCHAIR ASSISTANTS

When assistance to the wheelchair user is required, remember to use good body mechanics.

Keep your back straight and bend your knees whenever tilting the wheelchair or traversing curbs, or other impediments.

MVP™ & MVP jr.™

12

Part No. 1106638

GENERAL GUIDELINES SECTION 1

WARNING

DO NOT attempt to lift or tilt a wheelchair by using any removable

(detachable) parts. Lifting by means of any removable (detachable) parts of a wheelchair may result in injury to the user or damage to the wheelchair.

Also, be aware of any removable (detachable) parts. These must NEVER be used to move the wheelchair or as lifting supports, as they may be inadvertently released, resulting in possible injury to the user and/or assistant(s).

When learning a new assistance technique, have an experienced assistant help you before attempting it alone.

PERCENTAGE OF WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION

WARNING

DO NOT attempt to reach objects if you have to move forward in the seat or pick them up from the floor by reaching down between your knees.

The seat depth, seat dump, back angle, seating system, caster size and position, rear wheel size and position, anti-tippers, as well as the user condition directly relate to the stability of the wheelchair. Any change to one (1) or any combination of the ten (10) may cause the wheelchair to decrease in stability.

EXTREME care MUST be taken when changing the stability of the wheelchair.

These adjustments MUST be performed by a qualified technician ONLY.

Many activities require the wheelchair owner to reach, bend and transfer in and out of the wheelchair. These movements will cause a change to the normal balance, the center of gravity, and the weight distribution of the wheelchair. To determine and establish your particular safety limits, practice bending, reaching and transferring activities in several combinations in the presence of a qualified healthcare professional BEFORE attempting active use of the wheelchair.

Proper positioning is essential for your safety. When reaching, leaning, bending or bending forward, it is important to use the front casters as a tool to maintain stability and balance.

LENGTHENING THE WHEELBASE will increase the stability and maintain standard maneuverability of the wheelchair.

SHORTENING THE WHEELBASE will decrease the stability, increase the maneuverability and distribute additional weight onto the rear wheels.

Part No. 1106638

GENERAL GUIDELINES SECTION 1

TIPPING

WARNING

DO NOT tip the wheelchair without assistance.

When tipping the wheelchair, an assistant should grasp the back of the wheelchair on a nonremovable (non-detachable) part. Inform the wheelchair occupant before tilting the wheelchair and remind him/her to lean back. Be sure the occupant’s feet and hands are clear of all wheels and/or pinch points.

Tipping - Curbs.

WARNING

When lowering the front casters of the wheelchair, DO NOT let the wheelchair drop the last few inches to the ground. This could result in injury to the occupant and/or damage to the wheelchair.

After mastering the techniques of tilting the wheelchair, use one of the following methods to tackle curbs, short stairs, etc.

TIPPING - CURBS: METHOD 1 - WHEELCHAIR WITH STEP TUBES:

Place foot on the step tube and begin to tilt the wheelchair toward you. Apply a continuous downward motion until the balance point is achieved and the front casters clear the curb. At this point, the assistant will feel a difference in the weight distribution.

Roll the wheelchair forward and SLOWLY lower the front casters onto the sidewalk.

Push the wheelchair forward until the rear wheels roll up and over the curb.

TIPPING - CURBS: METHOD 2 -

WHEELCHAIR WITHOUT STEP

TUBE:

This method requires two (2) assistants. The

Step Tube

METHOD 1 - WHEELCHAIR WITH

STEP TUBES

second assistant should be positioned at the front of the wheelchair lifting upward on a nonremovable (non-detachable) part of the wheelchair frame when lifting the wheelchair and stabilizing the wheelchair when the wheelchair is being lowered to the ground.

The first assistant should stand on the sidewalk and turn the wheelchair so that the rear wheels are against the curb. Turn the anti-tippers to the anti-tip wheels are pointing up. The wheelchair should be tilted back to the balance point and, in one continuous upward movement, the rear wheels should be pulled up and over the curb. DO NOT return the front casters to the ground until the wheelchair has been pulled backward far enough for the front casters to clear the edge of the curb.

METHOD 2 - WHEELCHAIR

WITHOUT STEP TUBE

Roll the wheelchair backward and SLOWLY lower the front casters onto the sidewalk. Turn the anti-tippers so the anti-tip wheels are facing down.

SECTION 1 GENERAL GUIDELINES

STAIRWAYS

WARNING

EXTREME CAUTION is advised when it is necessary to move an occupied wheelchair up or down the stairs. Invacare recommends that, if possible, the occupant be removed from the wheelchair prior to moving. The manufacturer recommends using two (2) assistants and making thorough preparations.

Make sure to use ONLY secure, non-detachable parts for hand-held supports.

DO NOT attempt to lift or tilt a wheelchair by using any removable

(detachable) parts. Lifting by means of any removable (detachable) parts of a wheelchair may result in injury to the user or damage to the wheelchair.

ALWAYS wear your seat positioning strap. Inasmuch as the SEAT

POSITIONING STRAP is an option on this wheelchair (You may order with or without the seat positioning strap), Invacare strongly recommends ordering the seat positioning strap as an additional safeguard for the wheelchair user.

Follow this procedure for moving the wheelchair between floors when an elevator is

NOT available:

1. If so equipped, rotate the anti-tippers so the wheels are facing up.

2. After the wheelchair has been tilted back to the balance point, one assistant (in the rear) backs the wheelchair up against the first step, while securely grasping a nonremovable (non-detachable) part of the wheelchair for leverage.

3. The second assistant, with a firm hold on a non-detachable part of the framework, lifts the wheelchair up and over the stair and steadies the wheelchair as the first assistant places one (1) foot on the next stair and repeats STEP 2.

4. The wheelchair should not be lowered until the last stair has been negotiated and the wheelchair has been rolled away from the stairway.

5. If so equipped, rotate the anti-tippers so the wheels are facing down.

ESCALATORS? SORRY!

DO NOT use an escalator to move a wheelchair between floors. Serious bodily injury may occur.

Part No. 1106638

GENERAL GUIDELINES SECTION 1

TRANSFERRING TO AND FROM OTHER SEATS

WARNING

BEFORE attempting to transfer in or out of the wheelchair, every precaution should be taken to reduce the gap distance. Align both casters parallel with the object onto which you are transferring. Also be certain the wheel locks are engaged to help prevent the wheels from moving.

DO NOT sit or transfer into the wheelchair unless it is fully open.

CAUTION

When transferring, position yourself as far back as possible in the seat. This will prevent damaged upholstery and the possibility of the wheelchair tipping forward.

NOTE: This activity may be performed independently provided you have adequate mobility and upper body strength.

Position the wheelchair as close as possible alongside the seat to which you are transferring, with the front casters parallel to it. Remove, lower or rotate the armrest so it is out of the way. Engage wheel locks. Shift body weight into seat with transfer.

During independent transfer, little or no seat platform will be beneath you. Use a transfer board if at all possible.
