    Attendant Brakes
    These are located on the handles and have a 2 click system. See Fig 7b. To slow the
    wheelchair pull the brake handles which will ‘click’ once and then by applying
    further pressure it will increase braking. By pressing harder the brake handle will
    ‘click’ again which means the parking brake has been applied. To release the brakes
    (from either the 1 click or 2 click position) then press the release handle.

    The brakes may need to be adjusted periodically. We would advise that this is done
    by a competent person.
    For normal adjustment see Fig. 7a, whereby ‘Nut A’ needs to be released and then
    the adjustor needs to be turned clockwise/anticlockwise to adjust the brakes. After
    adjustment re-tighten Nut A. Should further adjustment be needed then see Fig. 7c
    where the hex nut needs to be undone and the cable pulled and tightened before
    re-locking with the allen key.

    WARNING: The centre of balance is affected by a change in posture body position
    or weight distribution.
    Many activities require the wheelchair owner to reach, bend and transfer into and
    out of the wheelchair. These movements will cause a change to normal balance,
    centre of gravity and weight distribution of the wheelchair.
    The design of your wheelchair enables it to remain stable for normal everyday
    usage if used correctly in accordance with the recommendations in this manual.
    1. Reaching/bending forward
    Move the wheelchair as close as possible to the object you wish to reach.
    Position the front castors so that they are extended as far forward as possible.
    Fully engage the wheel locks on the rear wheels. Only reach out to take what
    is within arm’s length in normal sitting position. Only the arms should extend
    beyond the seat of the wheelchair.
    2. Reaching/bending backwards
    Move the wheelchair as close as possible to the object you wish to reach.
    Reach back only as far as your arm will extend without changing your seating
    position. Do not lean over the top of the back upholstery as this could change
    your centre of gravity and may cause you to tip over.
    3. Reaching/leaning sideways
    Move the wheelchair as close as possible to the object you wish to reach.
    Rotate the front castors to a line in the direction you will be reaching. Fully
    engage the wheel locks on the rear wheels. Do not shift your weight or sitting
    position towards the object you are reaching as it may cause the wheelchair to
    tip over.
    4. Transferring
    Before attempting to transfer in and out of the wheelchair, every precaution
    should be taken to ensure the gap between the two seats is as small as
    possible. Be certain that the wheel locks are on to prevent the wheels moving.
    Turn both castors in the direction of the seat to which you wish to move. Lift
    up the footplates and fold back the supports to the side. Do not stand on the
    footplates. It is imperative that the actual transfer procedure be supervised by
    a certified health care professional until the wheelchair owner is familiar with
    the procedure.

    5. Negotiating Obstacles
    5.1 Forwards
    The wheelchair should be tilted by the helper until the front castors have
    passed over the kerbs. Move the wheelchair forward until the rear wheels
    touch the kerb and gently lower the front castors over the pavement.
    Push the lift until the rear wheels have mounted the kerb. The wheelchair
    should not be lifted by the handles alone.
    5.2 Backwards
    The wheelchair should be positioned so that the rear wheels are against
    the kerb. The helper should then tilt the wheelchair backwards and then
    pull the chair until the rear wheels mount the kerb. The front castors
    should only be lowered to the ground when the wheelchair has been
    pulled sufficiently away from the kerb.
    5.3 Upward and Downward slopes
    Always go straight up and down slopes to avoid the possibility of the
    wheelchair overturning. Avoid steep slopes, which may cause instability.

    The design of your wheelchair enables it to remain stable for normal everyday
    usage if used correctly in accordance with the recommendations in this manual.
    Use as a Seat in Transport
    Aidapt recommend that when possible, wheelchair users should transfer from their
    wheelchair to a vehicle seat and use a 3-point occupant restraint system for the
    seated position. Aidapt also recognises that due to reason of pain or discomfort,
    transfer may not be possible.
    The VA169 wheelchair chair has been successfully tested according to the
    requirements of ISO 7176 Part 19: Wheelchairs for Use in Transport, using a 4-point
    tie-down and occupant restraint system from the range of ISO 10542-1 compliant
    equipment developed and supplied by Unwin Safety Systems.
    Aidapt recommends the use of transport equipment supplied by Unwin Safety
    Systems, their contact details are as follows: Website: www-unwin-safety.com, Tel:
    +44 1935 827740.
    Information regarding the location of tie-down attachment points are provided in

    Transport – General Instructions
    When transfer to a vehicle seat is not possible, the following General
    Recommendations are made:
    1. Ensure that the wheelchair is correctly maintained and that settings of any
    adjustable parts are made according to manufacturers ‘Instruction for Use in
    2. Remove any items of luggage that may be attached to the wheelchair and
    secure or store separately during transport in order to reduce the potential
    for injury to others passengers travelling in the vehicle.
    3. Extra care must be exercised when using vehicle boarding aids such as
    passenger lifts or ramps during the loading process. Refer to Wheelchair
    manufacturers Instructions for Use for information on safe slopes.
    4. Position the wheelchair facing forward - centrally in the designated region of
    the vehicle. Ensure the wheelchair brakes are applied.
    5. To minimise the potential for head injuries in an impact, allow a clear space
    of at least 400 mm behind and 650 mm in front of the head of the
    wheelchair user. The shoulder belt anchorage must be side-wall anchored at
    a height level with or above occupant shoulder level.
    6. A height provision ranging from 1200 mm to 1550 mm should be made,
    depending on the size of the passenger. There should also be 200 mm of
    clear space either side of the wheelchair. If these clear space dimensions
    cannot be provided then any structure protruding into this space should be
    adequately padded.
    7. Postural support belts are not to be used as occupant restraints.
    8. Wheelchair users, their carers and family are advised to check vehicle
    specifications to ensure that sufficient floor space is available to
    accommodate the wheelchair and tie-down system. Users of heavy powered
    wheelchairs are also advised to check vehicle carrying capacity. If in doubt
    consult vehicle supplier for further details.

    1. Backrest
    There are two types of backrest fitted to the wheelchair, either fixed or
    adjustable. The adjustable backrest can be folded down by means of a locking
    mechanism fitted to both sides of the lower part of the backrest pillars. To fold
    the backrest down, push on both of the black plastic levers, then pull back and
    down on the top part of the backrest. To return to the original, reverse the
    procedure, making sure the mechanisms are locked securely.
    2. Handles
    The handles are designed for the helper to propel the wheelchair. They must
    not be used solely for lifting the wheelchair over obstructions or kerbs (see
    negotiating obstacles)
    3. Armrest
    PVC pads are fixed onto the armrest for comfort and can be replaced as spare
    4. Seat Upholstery
    Periodically check the upholstery for signs of tears or sagging. Replace
    immediately if the seat is damaged. Remember: the seat upholstery is the
    primary weight – supporting material.
    5. Footplates
    The footplates are intended as a foot support only when you are sitting in the
    wheelchair. On no account should you stand on the footplates. The heel loops
    or calf straps (if fitted) can be used to secure the position of the feet. The
    footplate assemblies can be adjusted in height by loosening the nut of the
    base of the adjustment tube, positioning the plate at the required height and
    tightening the nut to secure the assembly.
    The footplate supports cannot be adjusted but are moveable from the
    wheelchair. They can be swung away to the outside of the wheelchair. To carry
    out this procedure, press the release lever and swing the support to the
    outside of the wheelchair. If the support is to be removed, lift it upwards. To
    re-fit and return to the original position, reverse the above procedure.

    6. Castor and bearing
    The front wheels have solid puncture proof tyres. These should be checked at
    regular intervals to monitor any wear. Wheelchairs become difficult to steer
    and propel when surfaces have worn flat. It is recommended that both front
    tyres are replaced at the same time to avoid one side of the wheelchair from
    being higher than the other.
    The wheel is secured to the castor fork by an axle bolt and axle nut.
    Periodically, this bolt and nut should be checked and tightened if necessary to
    allow a snug but free spinning fit. The castor fork swivel allows the wheelchair
    to be steered. An adjustment locknut is located under the castor cap. If the
    locknut is too tight, the wheelchair will be difficult to steer.
    7. Wheel lock assembly
    These are used to hold the wheelchair in a stationary position, and are fitted
    on either side of the wheelchair. They should not be used when the
    wheelchair is moving or to slow it down. They should always be applied
    To operate, push the brake lever forward towards the front of the wheelchair.
    This will immobilize the wheelchair. To release the brake, move the lever
    towards the rear of the wheelchair.
    8. Cross Bar
    Operation of the cross brace permits the wheelchair to be opened and closed
    easily. It should be inspected at regular intervals for signs of wear and
    9. Folding Backrest Device
    Push down the hinge to fold down the backrest. Automatically lock when pull
    up the backrest handle. This device is to enhance the storage feature.

    1. Upholstery
    Upholstery should be routinely cleaned with a mild soap and water solution.
    Never use paint remover or thinners on upholstery.
    2. Metal Parts
    Clean all metal parts with a wax compound such as car wash to maintain
    finish. Do not use any obtrusive cleanser that will scratch the finish on the
    3. Cross Brace
    Periodically lubricate the centre bolt on the cross brace with light machine oil.
    4. Tyres and Wheels
    Examine tyres regularly for wear and replace as necessary. Solid tyres should
    be replaced when they become loose on the rim or cracks appear which
    expose the mounting wire groove. For pneumatic tyres, check tyre pressure is
    even and correct. Check that the wheels run freely.
    If your wheelchair is fitted with pneumatic tires and you have a puncture
    please take your wheelchair to the nearest dealer or bicycle repair center
    5. Castors
    Check periodically that the bolt and nut securing the wheel to the castor fork
    is tight and allows a snug but free spinning fit.
    6. Brakes
    Regularly check for effective operation and there is no wear or signs of play.
    7. General
    Always check before use that the wheelchair folds and unfolds correctly and
    that movement both backwards and forwards is in a straight line.
    8. Servicing
    We recommend your wheelchair is fully serviced every twelve months. For
    parts and service information please contact Aidapt Bathrooms Limited
