SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

The ConvaQuip Sit-To-Stand patient lift allows a caregiver to lift and transfer a patient safely with minimum physical effort. Before attempting to lift anyone, you should practice operating the lift and be able to explain to the patient the lifting and transfer procedures.

Arrange all necessary items (e.g. lift, sling, commode chair or wheelchair) properly for a smooth transfer.

• Special care must be taken with patients who are comatose, spastic, agitated, or otherwise severely handicapped. A competent caregiver must always be present during any patient lifting.

• The sole function of the patient lift is for transferring a patient from one utility (beds, bathtubs, toilets, etc.) to another.

• The lift should not be used to transport or move patients from room to room or over longer distances. Transfers should normally take place within the same patient room or bathroom.

• Do not put anything (e.g. cushion, pad, etc.) between the user and the sling. This may cause user to slide out of the sling and cause injury.

• The user/patient being transferred should be positioned in the center of the area being transferred from (i.e. bed, wheel chair, chair, commode, etc.) before being lifted, as well as when he/she is returned.

• Keep lifter base widened (use foot pedals to accomplish this) and brakes unlocked during lifting. If the brakes are locked during the lift process, the lift may become unstable.

• While the patient is suspended, always keep the patients centered between the base legs.

• Do not attempt to roll the lift or casters over floor obstacles while the user is in the sling and on board.

3

• Use only ConvaQuip slings specially designed and tested for ConvaQuip patient lifts . Do not use slings manufactured by other companies on

ConvaQuip sit-to-stand patient lift. ConvaQuip is not responsible for any consequence resulting from using non-ConvaQuip products.

• Use only ConvaQuip manufactured or approved parts and components.

ConvaQuip is not responsible for any adverse consequence resulting from using parts and components from other manufacturers.

• Service and repair of the patient lift should be performed by ConvaQuip or its authorized dealers ONLY. ConvaQuip is not responsible for any consequence resulting from any unauthorized service or repair.

• Never attempt to lift over the maximum capacity of the lift and any accessories used in conjunction with the lift. The maximum safe working load for the lift will be clearly labeled on the lift.

If you have a problem occurring which is not listed below, please contact your dealer or technical support for help. Do not attempt to repair or replace components or parts on your lift as this may void your warranty or cause further problems that may result in patient injury. Stop using your lift immediately if it is not functioning correctly or any warning beeps are heard.

I need to re-charge my batteries often or they fail to hold a charge when I charge them.

• Replace the batteries or battery pack as they are at the end of their life cycle

• Batteries should be changed every 18-24 months depending on usage

The actuator will either go up or down but not both

• Replace your hand control as it is at the end of its life cycle

• Your control box may be malfunctioning

There is a grinding sound inside the actuator when lifting

• Replace your actuator as the internal gears are stripped

The actuator stops and starts while lifting or lowering

• Replace the batteries or battery pack as they are at the end of their life cycle

EMERGENCY LOWERING MECHANISM

The following instructions apply to

ConvaQuip STS600E-series

In case there is a failure with the actuator or electronics and the user is left suspended in mid-air, please follow the procedures below to safely lower the user to a safer position.

The Quick Release is implemented by a spring-loaded lever mounted at the top end collar of the actuator shaft. DO NOT attempt to turn the Quick

Release mechanism like a knob. This will damage the Quick Release mechanism and actuator. Manually activate Quick Release by pulling the

RED lever with the arrow symbol in the direction indicated by the arrow towards the opposite red tab. This will de-clutch the actuator and lower the user safely down.

Note: When the Quick Release is activated, the boom will not lower itself unless there is weight or force applied in the downward direction.

Contact your dealer immediately if standard troubleshooting techniques do not correct the failure. Do not attempt to lift until all failure and safety issues have been resolved.

NOTE: THE EMERGENCY LOWERING DEVICE IS INTENDED FOR USE

DURING LIFT FAILURE. THIS DEVICE WILL ALLOW LOWERING OF

PATIENTS ONLY. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR DEALER IMMEDIATELY IN

CASE OF FAILURE.
