    Basic Safety Precautions

    Before using your wheelchair, please read and keep in mind the following safety precautions. Failure to do so could result in personal injury and/or damage to your wheelchair.

    • Before using, you should receive training in the safe use of a wheelchair from an authorized dealer and/or health care advisor.

    • After engaging the wheel locks, practice bending, reaching and transferring, taking into account the limit of your abilities.

    • NEVER try new manoeuvres on your own until you are sure you can do so safely.

    • Familiarize yourself with the areas where you plan to use your wheelchair.

    • Look for hazards and learn to how to avoid them.

    • Use of anti-tippers is recommended for added safety.

    • Ensure that the wheelchair rolls smoothly and that all parts are working properly.

    • Check for noise, vibration or a change in ease of use, which may indicate loose fasteners or damage to your wheelchair.

    ®• Always consult an authorized Airgo dealer to find and correct any

    problems or if you have any doubt about the condition of your wheelchair.

    General Warnings

    • Do not exceed the weight limit listed on the product. The listed weight limit is for the combined weight of rider and all items carried. Exceeding the listed weight limit risks damage to the wheelchair, a fall, tip-over or loss of control which can cause severe injury to the user or others.

    • Do not attempt to operate your wheelchair on roads, streets or highways.

    • Do not operate your wheelchair in hilly or overly rough terrain, on sandy, oily, wet or icy surfaces.

    • Unauthorized modification of your wheelchair or the use of non-authorized replacement parts may change the structure of the wheelchair and may cause a safety hazard and will void the warranty.

    • Do not attempt ANY inclines or declines greater than 9°.

    • Do not attempt inclines without anti-tippers installed.

    • Do not attempt to ride over curbs or obstacles. This may cause your wheelchair to tip over risking personal injury and/or damage to your wheelchair.

    • Do not use on an escalator. Serious injury may occur.

    • Do not attempt to reach objects if you have to move forward in the seat.
