Ensure that the brake is locked when getting on/off the wheelchair.
Do not step on the foot place when getting off the wheelchair, or else the chair will tip forward.
Do not place the wheelchair near any source of fire.
To move up or down a steep slope, ensure that a care giver is around to support the wheelchair; otherwise the chair may overturn. For a steep downward slope, the wheelchair should be turned to face up slope, and the care giver should back the chair downwards gradually.
When lifting a wheelchair with the patient on it, do not hold on to the handles if the chair's backrest is the foldable kind. Otherwise, the backrest may be damaged.
