DEALER ADJUSTMENTS - STABILITY PROCEDURE 8

STABILITY ADJUSTMENT WITHOUT A SEATING SYSTEM

NOTE: ANY seating system attached to this wheelchair will require ONE (1) or ALL of the components in the preceding sections of this procedure to be readjusted.

NOTE: There are two (2) charts of allowable adjustment combinations. The first chart, STABILITY ADJUST-

MENTS WITHOUT A SEATING SYSTEM shows the allowable adjustment combinations without a seating system attached. The second chart, STABILITY

ADJUSTMENTS WITH A KSS SEATING SYSTEM was developed to show the difference in weight distribution and the decreasing range of allowable back angles.

How to read the Stability charts:

1. Find the chart that represents your desired adjustable pivot point.

2. Then, find your desired seat depth.

NOTE: Seat depths are listed across the top.

3. Follow that column down until you find the row which contains your desired seat width.

NOTE: Seat widths are listed down the left hand side.

NOTE: Each box contains the allowable back angle range for your desired seat width, seat depth, and pivot point adjustment combination.
