What to Buy with Drive Lightweight Manual Wheelchair?

How to Use Cougar Aluminum Wheelchair?

  • Adjusting/Elevating Leg rest:

    Lift footplate on leg rest assembly to desired position. Release leg rests assembly and it will automatically lock into place. To lower, push out on leg rest lever and lower footplate to the desired position.

  • 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 by learning chair to one side and spin the adjuster wheel.

  • General Care:

    Wipe chrome 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.

  • To Open Chair:

    Open wheelchair by tilting to one side and pushing down on seat rail until fully opened.

  • To Close/Fold Chair:

    First, fold footplates to a vertical position. Grab a seat with both hands at the front and back edge and lift. Or, tilt chair to one side and lift up on seat rail.

  • Removable Arms:

    Remove arms by depressing spring button and lifting arms out of the front and rear sockets.


  • Do not attempt to adjust or operate wheelchair without reading carefully all instructions in the manual.
  • This wheelchair has not been approved as a seat that can be used within vehicles of any kind. Always transfer wheelchair user to vehicle manufacturers approved seat and use safety restraints available.
  • Do not operate this wheelchair on roadways, streets or any surfaces with vehicular traffic.
  • Do not attempt to operate on inclines 10% or greater without proper assistance.
  • Be sure to completely engage wheel locks when getting in and out of a wheelchair or when in an elevator or wheelchair lift.
  • The wheelchair should be on a smooth, stable and level area with wheel locks engaged before transferring user in or out of the wheelchair.
  • Do not adjust footrests any lower than 2-1/2" from the floor.
  • When getting in or out of the wheelchair, do not stand on or apply weight to footrests.
  • Before reaching or leaning forward, rotate casters to the front of the wheelchair engage wheel locks to help prevent the wheelchair from tipping over.
  • Do not lean over or apply weight to the top of the wheelchair back. This can cause the wheelchair to tip over. When trying to extend arms over back, only reach as far as your arm can extend without having to alter your seating position.
  • Do not stand on a wheelchair.
  • Do not use wheel locks to slow your descent down an incline.
  • Abruptly changing directions while going down an incline could cause instability or possible tipping over



The wheelchair is designed to be safe and 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 in the chair. Never reach so far that require you to shift in the seat or bend over 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 that extends the wheelbase and will stabilize the chair.


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