A GENERAL GUIDELINES
1. Safety and operating limits
For safe operation of your wheelchair, the following parameters should be observed:
- Stability and balance
Your wheelchair has been designed to provide the stability
you need during normal daily activities.
Any movement in the wheelchair will have an impact on
the position of the centre of gravity, which may lead to the
wheelchair tipping and falling.
To improve your safety when you move a lot or you transfer your weight from one place to another, we recommend
using seat belts.
- Weight distribution (figure 1)
Many actions cause the user of a wheelchair to reach out,
lean over or move about within the wheelchair and outside
it. These movements cause a change to normal balance,
centre of gravity (G) and weight distribution of the wheelchair.
1
- Weight Limit
The maximum recommended weight of the user is 120
kg. However, the level of activity is an essential factor. For
example, an active user who weighs 75 kg may subject the
wheelchair to more stress than that of a user who weighs
100 kg. To this purpose, we recommend that you consult
your retailer when choosing the model of wheelchair based
upon your daily lifestyle.
1.1 Reaching an object from the chair
The limitations on reaching out from a wheelchair indicated
in the following diagrams have been calculated based on a
representative sample of wheelchair users:
- Only the arms should be extended beyond the seat of the
wheelchair (figure 2).
- The body and head should remain within the boundaries of
the seat (figure 3).
2
3
3
1.1.1 Leaning forward
1.1.2 Leaning backward
Do not extend your chest over the armrest (figure 4).
In order to reach an object in front of you, you must lean and
bend down; therefore, you must use the castors as a tool
(pointing them forward) to maintain stability and balance.
Accurate alignment of the wheels is essential for your safety
(figure 5).
Position wheelchair as close as possible to the desired object
so that you can simply pick it up by stretching your arm
while sitting in the chair in a normal position. Do not lean
backwards because you may cause the chair to tip (figures 6
and 7).
4
4
5
6
7
1.2 Sideways transferring to other seats
This may be done without assistance provided that you are
sufficiently mobile and have a strong enough torso.
- Move the wheelchair as close as possible to the seat
to which you would like to sit, with the castors pointed
forward. Lock the wheels by applying the brakes. Move the
weight of your body towards the seat (figure 8)
- While moving from the wheelchair to the seat, your body
will have little or no support. Where possible use a transfer
board during transfers.
- If you are more or less able to stand up and if your upper
body is sufficiently strong and mobile, you can transfer
forward to another seat. Fold the footplates up and push
the footrests/legrests to the side, bend your body forward
leaning on the two armrests and lift yourself up; then shift
your body towards the place where you want to sit while
distributing your weight to the arms and hands (figure 9).
8
!
Warning :
- Position yourself as close as possible to the place where
you wish to sit.
- When transferring, position yourself as far back as possible
in the seat to prevent breaking screws, damaging the seat
upholstery or causing the wheelchair to tip forward.
- Lock the two brakes; they should not be used as support
for transfers.
- Never stand on the footrests when you are getting in or
out of the wheelchair (figure 10).

1.3 Tilting (balancing on the rear wheels)
1.4 Tilting, Kerbs
For greater safety, this operation must be performed by an
attendant. The attendant should be aware of the required
physical effort and use appropriate positioning in order to
relieve the strain on his/her back (keep a straight back and
bend knees during this operation).
To tilt the wheelchair, the attendant must firmly grab the handles making sure both are properly fixed. The attendant must
warn the occupant in the wheelchair before tilting it and
remind him/her to lean backwards and make sure that both
feet and hands of the occupant are clear of the wheels.
Place a foot on the footstep tube and move continuously
until the chair reaches the equilibrium point. At this stage, the
assistant will feel a difference in weight distribution, which
usually occurs at approximately 30°. At this point, the
wheelchair can get over the obstacle easily.
Finally, the attendant slowly and gradually lowers the front
down to the ground, while firmly holding the handles.
To get onto the footpath:
- Method 1 (figure 11)
The attendant positions the wheelchair in front of the
footpath facing forward. Attendant tilts the wheelchair
backwards until the castors reach the footpath; attendant
pushes the wheelchair forward until the rear wheels are
against the kerb and again pushes the wheelchair until the
rear wheels climb over the kerb.
- Method 2 (figure 12)
In this case, the attendant stands on the footpath and
moves the wheelchair in a backwards position with the rear
wheels against the kerb. The attendant tilts the wheelchair
backwards until it is balanced and pulls the wheelchair with a
steady movement until the rear wheels climb over the kerb;
then he / she lowers the castors, while making sure that the
chair is far enough on the pavement so that the castors do
not fall into empty space.
! Warning :
- Be aware of detachable parts such as armrests or legrests :
they must NEVER be used as lifting supports as they may be
inadvertedly released, resulting in possible injury to the user
and / or attendant.
- Do not lower the wheelchair suddenly, as this may result in
injury of the user.
11
12
To get off the footpath :
The attendant positions the wheelchair facing forward on
the footpath and tilts it backwards until it is balanced, then
he/she pushes the wheelchair forward until the rear wheels
touch the road; then, he / she gradually lowers the castors
to the ground.
1.5 Stairways
Because this is a difficult movement, we recommend using
two attendants, one in front of the wheelchair and one
behind the wheelchair.
To climb stairways (figure 13) :
After tilting the wheelchair to the point of equilibrium, one
assistant (at the back) holds the wheelchair up against the
first step grasping the handles firmly to lift.
The second assistant, lifts the wheelchair above the stairs,
while holding firmly a fixed part of the frame, and continues
to hold it while the first assistant takes a step and repeats
the operation.
13
The wheelchair must not be lowered until the last step has
been passed and the chair is clear of the stairs.
To descend stairways :
Same operation as above, however, in reverse order.
!
Warning :
- Do not attempt to lift the wheelchair by any removable
parts (such as armrests, legrests or footrests).
- Avoid using an escalator which may lead to serious injury
in the event of a fall.
1.6 Slopes
It is recommended to avoid using ramps with a slope higher
than 9°. The wheelchair risks tipping over in the event of
spinning or side movement (figure 14).
14
7
Upward slopes (figure 15) :
2. Operating instructions
Lean the upper body forward and move the wheelchair
forward with short quick pushes on the hand rims to maintain speed and direction control. If you want to rest, apply
both brakes when stopping.
2.1 Unfolding and Folding the wheelchair
2.1.1 Unfolding the wheelchair (figure 18) :
Downward slopes (figure 16) :
Lean backward cautiously and let the hand rims slide in your
hands. Be ready to react at any moment to control speed
and direction.
8
! Warning :
- Avoid turning suddenly and never try to climb and descend
a ramp diagonally (figure 17).
15
16
- With one hand, grab the armrest or the seat support
tube on one side of the wheelchair and slightly tilt it towards you (so that the rear wheel and castor lift from the
ground);
- With the other hand, push on the seat upholstery until
the tube supporting the upholstery is fully unfolded. The
seat upholstery must be fully extended;
- Then, engage the two manual brakes, open the footrest/
legrest and check the ground clearance (footrest/ground
distance - see § B-2.1.5). You can now sit down in the
wheelchair.
17
18
2.1.2 Folding the chair (figures 19 and 20) :
2.2 Wheelchair propulsion
- Fold and lock the footrest/legrest toward the front of the
wheelchair.
- Swivel the plates into the vertical position. Using both
hands, take the centre front and back edges of the seat
upholstery and lift it. Or, tilt the wheelchair to one side
and close it using the handles on the backrest.
Wheelchair propulsion is provided by the handrims mounted on the wheels.
!
Warning:
- Fold the wheelchair while keeping the seat upholstery
upwards to avoid damage by the folding system.
! Qualified medical and paramedical staff will be able to
advise you with regard to the propulsion technique best suited
to your disability.
2.3. Lifting the wheelchair
First, fold the chair (see § 2.1.2), always lift the wheelchair
by gripping the frame at the points (A) shown in figure 21.
! Never lift the wheelchair by removable parts (armrests,
footrests). Ensure the backrest canes are securely in place.

3. Safety inspection and maintenance
3.2 General inspection
3.1 Performance control
Your distributor, who has the required technical expertise, is
responsible for any wheelchair repairs.
We recommend that you take the wheelchair to your
retailer at least once a year for a complete inspection. Regular maintenance allows the identification and replacement of
defective and worn parts, which improves the daily operation of your wheelchair.
As the user, you will be the first to notice the possible
operational defects of your wheelchair. The following table
indicates the easiest problems to identify and the
preliminary inspection that you can perform.

Remove the rim assembly (tyre and inner tube), repair or
replace the inner tube, reinsert in the tyre and reposition the
assembly on the rim.
Comply with the inflation pressure specified on the sidewall
of the tyre.
!
Never exceed the pressure specified on the sidewalls of
the tyre, otherwise, the tyre may explode and cause injuries !
 Pneumatic tyres wear out. In addition, the roughness of
the ground surface and driving have an impact on their longevity. The pressure in the two tyres should be the same.
Replace them regularly to avoid trouble caused by puncture.
Please consult with your Dealer.
2.3.2 Handrims
They provide wheelchair propulsion. They are made of
anodized aluminium.
!
Handrims are constantly in contact with your hands.
Make sure that they are not damaged !
2.3.3 Axles (photo 9)
2.5 Brakes
The Quick release axles connect the wheels and frame:
Depress the button (A) and insert the axle in the bearing (B)
of the chassis until it locks in place.
The locking balls (C) must rise above the bearing.
2.5.1 Manual brakes
! Make sure that the axle and the locking balls are clean.
To prevent falls, it is essential that the button (A) and the
locking balls (C) are disengaged providing a perfect lock of the
rear wheels.
The quick release axle is a precision part, minimise jarring and
clean regularly to ensure good working of the mechanism.
To operate the brakes, push both handles (A) simultaneously
forward and make sure the wheelchair doesn't move at all.
To make transfers easier, the handle (A) can be folded back:
pull it upwards and then push it backwards.
Note: brake adjustments are based upon the diameter and type
of wheel. After repairing a flat tyre or in the event of wear of
the pneumatic or solid tyre, you may need to adjust the brake(s).
