Ì
General Use
DO NOT stand on the frame of the wheelchair.
DO NOT stand or put pressure on the footrests. When getting in or out of the
wheelchair, make sure the footplates are in the up position.
DO NOT attempt to lift the wheelchair by any detachable components.
There are potential finger pinch point areas at moving parts and between the seat
frame and the seat cradles on some models. When opening the wheelchair, take care
not to place your hand or fingers between the seat frame and the seat cradles (if
present) or on any other moving parts.
ALWAYS keep hands and fingers away from moving parts. DO NOT sit in the
wheelchair until the seat is completely in the open position. Risk of injury may occur
if care is not taken.
Ensure the seatback fold-down section is locked in the upright position before use.
The wheelchair should be on a stable, level surface with the wheel locks engaged
before transferring the user to or from the wheelchair.
Completely engage the wheel locks when entering and leaving the wheelchair or
using the wheelchair in an elevator or a wheelchair lift.
DO NOT transfer in or out of the wheelchair on your own unless you have sufficient
upper body strength, balance and agility and have been instructed in transfer
techniques by a health professional. Every precaution should be taken to reduce the
gap distance between the wheelchair and the target seat or bed. Turn both casters
parallel to the object you are transferring to.
DO NOT use the wheel locks (or hand grip locks if present) to stop the wheelchair
from moving. Wheel locks are not brakes. DO NOT use the wheel locks to slow your
descent down an incline.
Changing direction when going down an incline could cause instability.
DO NOT lean forward out of the wheelchair any farther than the length of the
armrests.
DO NOT attempt to reach for objects if doing so means you must move forward in the
seat.
DO NOT attempt to reach objects if you have to pick them up from the floor by
reaching down between your knees.
DO NOT shift your weight or sitting position toward the direction you are reaching as the
wheelchair may tip over.
DO NOT attempt to lean over the top of the back upholstery to reach objects.

WARNINGS & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
!
Ì
General Use
DO NOT tip the wheelchair without assistance. DO NOT lean the wheelchair back since this
can cause the wheelchair to tip over. If trying to reach objects, reach back only as far as your
arm will extend without altering your seating position.
Any person assisting the rider in maneuvering or lifting of the wheelchair must have sufficient
strength and be able to see obstacles in the path of travel. When learning a new assistance
technique, have an experienced assistant help you before attempting it alone. Remember to
use good body mechanics.
Contact with water or excess moisture may cause the non-aluminum wheelchairs to rust or
corrode. DO NOT use the chair in a shower, pool or other body of water. Avoid excess
moisture (example: do not leave the chair in a damp bathroom while taking a shower). Dry
the chair immediately if exposed to moisture.
When cleaning the hand grips, use only a clean towel lightly dampened with cool water.
Ensure the hand grips are dry before use. Use of soap or ammonia based cleaning solutions
may result in the hand grips sliding off.
If the wheelchair is exposed to extreme temperatures, high humidity and/or becomes wet,
check the hand grips to ensure they are not loose and do not twist on the handle.
Avoid storing or using the wheelchair near open flames or combustible products.

GUIDELINES:
SAFETY & HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS
Center of Gravity, Balance and Stability
The transport wheelchair has been designed to be safe and stable during normal transport
activity as long as proper balance is maintained. The point at which a wheelchair will tip
forward, backward, or to the side depends on its center of balance. To assure stability and
proper operation of the wheelchair, the center of gravity must be maintained in the chair.
Center of gravity is the point at which all the weight of an object can be considered to be
concentrated and represents the balance point.
Most activities such as transferring in and out of the wheelchair, bending, and reaching
affect the center of gravity and weight distribution of the wheelchair. Addition of accessories
such as a backpack will also re-distribute weight. Loss of proper balance may cause the
chair to tip over. Use of the seat belt is advised to help maintain stability by minimizing
movement within the wheelchair seat. The use of anti-tip devices (available only for
MDS808200SLR /C models), especially when maneuvering on ramps or inclines, will also
enhance safety.
Transport wheelchairs are designed for safe and efficient transport with someone pushing
the chair. Transport wheelchairs are not intended for independent use by wheelchair bound
individuals. The design does not allow maneuvering by the occupant.
To determine safety limits of the transport chair, practice with activities such as transferring,
bending, and reaching with a healthcare professional that is knowledgeable about
wheelchair use.
To assure safe operation of the transport wheelchair, ALL of the Warnings and Instructions
in this manual must be followed. Failure to do so may result in tipping the wheel chair over
or causing the user to fall which may result in serious bodily injury or damage to the
wheelchair.
Some basic wheelchair safety guidelines follow. The guidelines are critical for standard
wheelchair use, however, the principles also hold true for transport chairs. If any of the
following activities are required while using the transport chairs, these guidelines must be
followed to ensure safety and to avoid potential injury to the user or the transporter and to
avoid damage to the chair.
Reaching / Leaning / Bending – FORWARD or SIDEWAYS
• Position the wheelchair as close as possible to the object.
• Make sure the front casters are pointing in a forward position. This extends the wheel
base and will help stabilize the chair.
• Make sure the wheel locks are engaged before activity.
• DO NOT attempt to reach for objects if doing so means you must move forward in the
seat. DO NOT shift your weight toward the direction you are reaching.
• DO NOT attempt to reach objects if you have to pick them up from the floor by reaching
down between your knees.
• DO NOT shift your weight or seat position toward the direction you are reaching.
9
GUIDELINES:
SAFETY & HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS
Reaching / Leaning – BACKWARD
• Position the wheelchair as close as possible to the object.
• Make sure the front casters are pointing in a forward position. This extends the wheel
base and will help stabilize the chair.
• DO NOT engage the wheel locks – if your weight shifts while reaching backwards it is
better for the wheelchair to roll than to tip.
• DO NOT lean back over the top of the back upholstery.
• Reach back only as far as your arm will extend without changing your position in the
seat.
Transferring into and out of the wheelchair
Transport chairs do not have detachable arms, requiring the user to be able to stand and
assist with pivoting to the chair.
• Position the wheelchair as close as possible.
• Make sure both wheel locks are engaged.
• Remove or swing away the footrests that are in the transfer path.
• DO NOT put weight on the foot rests.
• Transfer as far back into the seat or onto the bed/chair as possible.
Obstacles
Obstacles such as floor threshold strips, uneven floors, cords or items on the floor, or cracks
in pavements can damage your wheelchair and may cause loss of control or a tip over. Be
alert! Scan your path and avoid any items that may cause instability.
Curbs, Steps and Stairs
Do not attempt to negotiate curbs or single steps without assistance. Ask your healthcare
worker to provide instructions regarding safe wheelchair use for curbs, steps and stairs.
Proper body mechanics and awareness of the center of gravity is crucial for these
maneuvers. The step tubes at the back of the chair are utilized to tilt the transport chair
backwards until the balance point is achieved and the front casters clear the curb/step.
Gently lower the front wheels to the ground and slowly roll the transport chair forward until
the rear wheels roll up over the curb/step.
Extreme caution is required if it is absolutely necessary to maneuver an occupied chair up or
down stairs. Two assistants with adequate body strength and endurance must be present.
DO NOT lift the chair by any removable parts (i.e. swing-away footrests). Make sure the
hand grips are not loose. Techniques for going up or down steps should be received from a
health care professional familiar with wheelchair use and practiced before attempting to
transport on stairs. If at all possible, an alternate means of transport up or down stairs is
recommended.
10
GUIDELINES:
SAFETY & HANDLING OF WHEELCHAIRS
Ramps / Inclines
The assistant must know their capabilities and limitations in terms of strength and endurance
before attempting to go up or down a ramp. Slopes will change the center of gravity. DO
NOT attempt to negotiate steep inclines greater than 10% (6 degrees, or one foot of rise or
fall for every ten feet of ramp length) without an experienced assistant. Use of anti-tip
devices are encouraged (available only for MDS808200SLR /C models), however, they may
not prevent a tip-over. Sometimes anti-tip devices may catch at the beginning of a ramp. If
this occurs, they will need to be disengaged and extra care should be taken. Backpacks or
other gear on the back of the wheelchair will cause it to tip backward more easily. Training
and practice negotiating ramps with a healthcare professional is recommended.
• Go as straight up or down the incline as possible.
• Check the ramp for any obstacles, bumps, depressions, or wetness before beginning.
Ask for additional assistance if necessary.
• Stay in the center of the ramp if possible.
• Avoid changing direction while on the ramp as this may cause loss of control of the
wheelchair.
• Avoid stopping on a ramp. Stopping may cause loss of control of the wheelchair. If
stopping is necessary, avoid sudden, abrupt forward movement when you resume
propelling the chair as that could cause instability.
• When going up an incline, the occupant should lean forward. This will adjust the center
of gravity to counteract the tendency of the wheelchair to tip backward.
• When going down a ramp, the occupant should face forward and lean backward into the
seat. Descent should always be done slowly. DO NOT use wheel locks as brakes to
slow down or stop the chair. Attempting to use the wheel locks could result in accidental
locking, veering or tipping to one side, or suddenly stopping.
• When going down a steep incline, the assistant should turn the chair and go down
backwards to avoid tipping the occupant out of the chair.
Basic Information for Wheelchair Assistants / Transporters
Work with the wheelchair user’s healthcare professional or your institution to learn safe ways
to assist that are within your capability and comfort level. To prevent injury to yourself or the
chair occupant use good body mechanics:
• Always tell the rider what you intend to do so he/she is ready for your actions and can
assist with maintaining a balanced center of gravity for stability.
• Bend at the knees, not at the waist. Keep knees bent, not locked straight.
• Use legs for strength, not the weaker muscles of the back or arms. This will help prevent
back strain.
• Do not twist at the waist. Keep the torso facing the same direction as the hips and move
the feet to turn. This will help prevent back strain.
• Maintain a straight back. Hunching or rounding the shoulders can cause back strain.
• Do not hesitate to call for additional assistance if needed.
• If you do not feel comfortable with an activity you are requested to assist with (such as
negotiating a step or a steep incline), you may decline to assist and should help find
appropriate assistance for the occupant.

GENERAL CARE
• Wipe off chrome / aluminum parts at least once per week using a clean, soft cloth.
• Clean all metal parts with auto wax or similar products.
• Dry the chair immediately if exposed to moisture.
• Do not use abrasive cleanser or materials that will scratch the finish of the chair.
• Clean the upholstery with a mild soap solution, rinse and wipe dry.
• Clean the hand grips with water only and dry thoroughly. Use of soap or
ammonia based cleaning solutions may loosen the grips.
MONTHLY CHECK LIST / TROUBLESHOOTING
General:
Inspect the entire wheelchair for broken parts, sharp edges and loose fasteners.
Ensure that everything works and the chair rolls straight without drag and does not
pull to one side. Replace or tighten parts as needed. Inspect for bent frame and
crossbars.
Frame and Crossbraces:
Check that the frame and crossbraces are not bent or dented. Check the tubing for cracks

SAFETY INSPECTION & MAINTENANCE
Upholstery:
Inspect for any rips, tears or worn spots and replace as necessary. Inspect the
upholstery screws and assure that all are present and tight. Torn or worn
upholstery may not support the user’s weight and could result in a fall with serious
bodily injury.
Seat back:
Ensure the seat back folding mechanism is functioning properly and the seat back
locks securely in the upright position.
Armrests:
Check for cracks, looseness, or sharp edges.
Hand grips:
Ensure the hand grips are tight and secure on the handles. They should not move
or twist.
Footrests / Legrests:
Ensure the legrest assembly release works properly. Ensure the assembly
automatically locks securely into place when attached and will not accidentally
unlock.
Front Caster Forks:
Verify the forks swivel freely without binding. Check to ensure the casters roll freely
by lifting the chair and spinning the caster. The caster should come to a gradual
stop. If the nut is too loose, the caster will flutter or shimmy. If the nut is too tight,
the chair will be difficult to steer. Check the bearings and clean the fork stem
housing.
Front Casters and Rear Wheels:
Ensure the caster / wheel axle and nut are tight. The fork housing and the rear and
front wheels are constructed with low maintenance, sealed bearings to keep dirt out
and increase the durability of the chair. Bearings are also protected with an
additional bearing spacer component. Check that the wheels are not warped,
cracked or otherwise damaged and the spokes are not broken. Replace as
needed. Assure that the wheels spin freely. Replacement and maintenance of
wheel bearings should be completed by a qualified wheelchair technician only.
Front and Rear Tires:
Solid tires require minimal maintenance. They should occasionally be cleaned with
a damp cloth. Replace the tires if they become cracked, excessively worn, or have
flat spots.

Wheel Locks
Check to ensure both locks engage correctly and embed in the tire at least
1/8 inch. If the lock is worn or damaged, it needs to be replaced. Make sure
the locking assembly is securely attached to the frame and the wheel will not
move when the lock is engaged. Make sure the wheel lock does not interfere
with wheel rotation when the lock is not engaged. See wheel lock adjustment
instructions in the General Use section.
21
MAINTENANCE
Hand grip wheel locks (select models):
Check to ensure the hand grips cause the wheel locks to engage correctly and
embed in the tire at least 1/8 inch. If the lock is worn or damaged, it needs to be
replaced. Make sure both the intermittent and full lock functions work by testing
the hand grips in both the up and down positions. Ensure the chair will not move
when the hand lock is engaged. Make sure the wheel lock does not interfere
with wheel rotation when the lock is not engaged. See wheel lock adjustment
instructions in the General Use section.
