WARNING
Seat Positioning Straps
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. The seat positioning strap is a positioning strap only. It is not designed for use
as a safety device withstanding high stress loads such as auto or aircraft safety belts. If signs of wear appear, strap MUST be
replaced IMMEDIATELY.
With regards to seat/chest positioning straps - it is the obligation of the DME dealer, therapists and other healthcare
professionals to determine if a seat/chest positioning strap is required to ensure the safe operation of this equipment by the
user. Serious injury can occur in the event of a fall from a wheelchair.
Tire Pressure

follow these suggestions may cause the tire to explode and cause bodily harm. The recommended tire pressure is listed on
the side wall of the tire.
Replacement of a pneumatic tire or tube MUST be performed by a qualified technician.
Weight Training
Invacare does not recommend the use of its wheelchairs as a weight training apparatus. Invacare wheelchairs have not been

4 SAFETY/HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS
4 Safety/Handling of Wheelchairs
4.1
Safety/Handling of Wheelchairs
“Safety and Handling” of the wheelchair requires the close attention of the wheelchair user as well as the assistant. This 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.
4.2
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. The seat positioning strap is a positioning strap only. It is not designed for use
as a safety device withstanding high stress loads such as auto or aircraft safety belts. If signs of wear appear, strap MUST be
replaced IMMEDIATELY.
DO NOT attempt to lift a wheelchair by lifting on any removable (detachable) parts. Lifting by means of any removable
(detachable) parts of the wheelchair may result in injury to the user or damage to the wheelchair.
ALWAYS check hand grips for looseness before using the wheelchair. If loose and/or worn, replace IMMEDIATELY.
DO NOT climb, go up, or down ramps or traverse slopes greater than 9°.
Invacare strongly recommends proceeding down ramps or slopes slowly to avoid hard braking or sudden stops.
DO NOT leave elevating legrests in the fully extended position when proceeding down ramps or slopes.
Be aware that carrying heavy objects on your lap while occupying the wheelchair may adversely affect the stability of the
wheelchair, resulting in serious bodily injury to the user, damage to the wheelchair and surrounding property.
Invacare® MyOn™MyOn Jr Wheelchairs

Part No 1167418
4 SAFETY/HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS

WARNING
This wheelchair has been designed to accommodate one individual. If more than one individual occupies the wheelchair this
may adversely affect the stability of the wheelchair, resulting in serious bodily injury to the user and passenger and damage
the wheelchair and surrounding property.
To assure stability and proper operation of your wheelchair, you must at all times wear your seat positioning strap and 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 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.
4.3
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.
4.4
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.
Also, be aware of detachable parts such as arms or legrests. 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.
4.5
Tipping

WARNING
DO NOT tip the wheelchair without assistance.
When tipping the wheelchair, an assistant should grasp the back of the wheelchair on a non-removable (non-detachable) part. Inform the wheelchair
occupant before tipping the wheelchair and remind him/her to lean back. Be sure the occupant’s feet and hands are clear of all wheels.
Part No 1167418
25
Invacare® MyOn™MyOn Jr Wheelchairs
4 SAFETY/HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS
Tipping - Curbs
After mastering the techniques of tipping the wheelchair, use this
procedure to tackle curbs, short stairs, etc.
Method 1 - Wheelchair with Step Tubes
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 wheelchair in one
continuous movement onto the sidewalk.

FIGURE 1
Method 1 - Wheelchair with Step Tubes
WARNING
DO NOT let the wheelchair drop the last few inches to the ground. This could result in injury to the occupant.
Push the wheelchair forward until the rear wheels roll up and over the curb.
Method 2 - Wheelchair without Step Tubes
1.
Unless the first assistant has exceptional upper body strength, it is
recommended that METHOD 2 use two assistants.
The second assistant should be positioned at the front of the wheelchair
lifting upward on the non removable (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. The wheelchair should be
tilted back to the balance point and, in one continuous downward
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.


WARNING
Extreme caution is advised when it is necessary to move an occupied or unoccupied wheelchair up or down the stairs.
Invacare recommends that, if possible, the user be removed from the wheelchair prior to moving. Invacare recommends
using two assistants and making thorough preparations. Make sure to use only secure, non-detachable parts for hand-held
supports.
Follow this procedure for moving the wheelchair between floors when an elevator is not available:
Moving Up Stairs
1.
If necessary, rotate the anti-tippers so the wheels are facing up.
2.
One assistant (positioned behind the wheelchair), securely grasps a non-removable (non-detachable) part of the wheelchair for leverage and tilts
the wheelchair back to the balance point.
3.
After the wheelchair has been tilted back to the balance point, the assistant behind the wheelchair backs the wheelchair up against the first step.
4.
The second assistant (positioned in the front of the wheelchair), with a firm hold on a non-detachable part of the framework, lifts the wheelchair
up and on to the next stair above and steadies the wheelchair as the assistant behind the wheelchair places one foot on the next stair above and
repeats process.
5.
The wheelchair should not be lowered until the last stair has been negotiated and the wheelchair has been rolled away from the stairway.
6.
If necessary, rotate the anti-tippers so the wheels are facing down.
Moving Down Stairs
1.
If necessary, rotate the anti-tippers so the wheels are facing up.
2.
One assistant (positioned behind the wheelchair), securely grasps a non-removable (non-detachable) part of the wheelchair for leverage and tilts
the wheelchair back to the balance point.
3.
After the wheelchair has been tilted back to the balance point, the assistant behind the wheelchair rolls the wheelchair up to the edge of the first
step.

4.8 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 you are transferring onto. Also be certain the wheel locks are engaged to help
prevent the wheels from moving.
WARNING
Maximum Gap Distance
Engaging the wheel locks may not prevent the
wheelchair from moving on all floor surfaces
including those that may be wet or slick. Always
exercise caution when transferring into or out of
your wheelchair.
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.

1.
This activity may be performed independently
provided you have adequate mobility and upper
body strength.

Position the wheelchair as close as possible along side the seat to
which you are transferring, with the front casters parallel to it.
2.
Engage wheel locks and fold down the wheel lock handles.
3.
Remove or flip back armrests.
4.
Shift body weight into seat with transfer.
Part No 1167418
During independent transfer, little or no seat
platform will be beneath you. Use a transfer board
if at all possible.

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 height, seat depth, back angle, seat system/upholstery, caster size/position, rear wheel size, rear wheel position,
correct anti-tipper as well as the end user’s disability or end user’s physical condition and capabilities directly relate to the
stability of the wheelchair. Any change to one or any combination of the nine may cause the wheelchair to decrease in
stability. These adjustments MUST be performed by a qualified technician.
WHEELCHAIRS WITH TRRO ONLY - The center of gravity is factory set. DO NOT adjust the center of gravity otherwise injury or damage may occur. Contact Invacare for service.
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 health professional before attempting active use of
the wheelchair.


WARNING
This wheelchair has been tested for seating in a motor vehicle with the factory installed seating system only.
When feasible, wheelchair occupants should transfer into the vehicle seat and use the OEM (Original Equipment
Manufacturer) vehicle-installed restraint system
Ensure that the factory installed seating system is secured to the wheelchair frame before operation. Refer to the seating system owner’s manual.
Positioning Belts

WARNING
Preferred Zone
The angle of the pelvic belt should be within the
preferred zone of 45 to 75 degrees to the
horizontal OR within the optional zone of 30 to 45
degrees to the horizontal.
Steeper side-view pelvic belt angles are especially
important if the pelvic belt is intended to be used
for postural support in addition to occupant
restraint in a frontal crash. Steeper angles will
reduce the tendency for a vertical gap to develop
between the user and the belt due to compliance of
seat cushions and belt movement, thereby reducing
the tendency for the user to slip under the belt and
for the belt to ride up on the soft abdomen during
normal use
Steeper belt angles also reduce the tendency for
upper-torso belts to pull the pelvic belt onto the
abdomen during frontal impact loading.
