General Care

Frame/Hand Grips

Wipe metal parts with a clean, soft cloth at least once a week. All metal parts can be cleaned with auto wax or similar products. If exposed to moisture, dry immediately. Do not use an abrasive cleanser that will scratch the finish. Use only a clean towel dampened with cool water when cleaning hand grips. Confirm that the grips are dry before using. NEVER use ammonia-based cleaning solutions or soap on hand grips, which may cause them to loosen or crack.

Wheels

Large rear wheels should be inspected at least once a month to ensure proper tightness. If wheel wobbles or is loose, release lock nut and tighten axle bolt slightly. Test for proper tightness and alignment by leaning chair to one side and spinning adjusted wheel.

Tires

Tires need minimal maintenance, but should be cleaned as needed with a damp cloth. Replace if tires become worn or cracking appears.

Front Casters

Check casters and lubricate as needed, Lubricate by removing fork and greasing caster stem bearings with high-quality multi-purpose grease. Lubricate wheel bearings by removing wheel from fork. Reassemble fork and wheel by tightening lock nuts until no play remains, but wheels roll freely. If lock nut is too loose, caster will shimmy. If it is too tight, chair will be difficult to steer.

Usage

Using Your Wheelchair

Wheel Locks

Engage both wheel locks before getting in or out of chair, leaning forward in chair, or while in an elevator or wheelchair lift. Proper adjustment of wheel lock is at least 1/8 inch when locked. Locks are engaged by pushing handles completely forward. Adjustments to locks are made by loosening or tightening nut on the carriage bolt. Embed lock shoe at least 1/8 inch by sliding clamp toward rear wheel while handle is engaged in locked position. Tighten nut and bolt to secure in position. Test for correct locking action before actual use.

Stability

Wheelchair is designed to be stable as long as the center of gravity is maintained while going about normal activities. Care must be taken while performing activities that shift your center of gravity while in the chair. Never reach so far that you have to shift in the seat or lean out of the chair. When you have to reach for objects that require you to lean, be certain front casters are pointing in a forward position and wheel locks are engaged, which stabilizes the chair.

Ramps

Be sure of your own capabilities, limitations, and strength before attempting to go up or down a ramp. Correct techniques on ramp negotiation should be shown to you by a healthcare provider. Assistance is recommended when going up or down inclines greater than 10˚. If you must stop on an incline, avoid sudden, abrupt movement when you resume movement. Because of backward angle of the chair, sudden abrupt movement could cause instability. Attempting to use the wheel lock brakes could result in accidental locking or tipping to one side or could cause a sudden stop. Avoid changing direction when going down an incline, as this could result in instability or tipping over.
