It is important for the attendant to be familiar with proper assisting procedures in any situation that requires the use of the Fly Lite Transport Chair. Safety is the Key consideration. Consult your physician, nurse or physical therapist to determine methods most suitable for your individual needs and abilities.
Note: The Fly Lite transport chair does not conform to Federal Standards for automobile seating and should not be used as a seat in a motor vehicle.
To open the chair, tilt to one side and push down on seat rails.
Lift back support to upright position. The lock to secure the back will engage automatically. To fold down and store, depress the locks simultaneously, and carefully fold down the back support.
To attach footrests, align the holes on the footrest arm with the pegs on the frame of the Fly Lite Transport chair.
To adjust the length of the footrests, loosen the bolt (or knob) on the telescoping tube shaft. Tighten securely after adjustment. The lowest part of the footrest should not be less than 2 1/2 inches from the ground to permit proper clearance.
To move the swing-away footrest, release the lock. Swing outward and rearward. Simply lift up and off to remove the footrest.
Before entering or leaving the chair, engage the dual wheel locks against the tires on both rear wheels. Make sure the front casters are in the forward position before transferring into or out of the chair.
Do not move forward on the seat while leaning forward out of the chair. If it is absolutely necessary to do so, make sure the front casters are in the forward position. If you are picking an object up from the floor, go past the object, and then go backwards. The casters will then swing to the forward position.
Leaning out of the transport chair without proper assistance could cause tipping.
Do not step on the foot plates when transferring, as this could cause tipping.
Note: You and your attendant should consult a qualified professional for correct techniques on ramp negotiations.
Note: The Fly Lite Transport Chair should not be operated without the assistance of an attendant.
