    3.Position the lift so that the patient is as far back in the chair as possible. Always be sure to lock the wheelchair brakes but NOT the lift breaks.
    4.Begin to lower the patient carefully into the chair.
    5.To position, push gently on the knees of the patient with your right or left hand while simultaneously lowering the patient into the chair.



    Other alternatives for positioning the patient further back into the chair are as follows:
    a.Raise the patient so that he/she is just touching the seat.
    b.Pull up on the top and back of the sling with left hand.
    c.Complete lowering the patient into the chair.
    d.Raise the patient and repeat steps B-C if necessary.
    Unhook the sling from the cradle or the chains or straps attached to sling.
    Leave the sling in place if for short periods of time. We always recommend that if the patient is going to be sitting in on the sling for more then a few hours the sling should be taken out from under their bottom to prevent the sling from bunching up and causing any skin issues on the patients bottom area.
     NOTE: Remove only if a divided leg sling was used.
     NOTE: Use the straps or handles on the side and the back of the sling to guide the patient’s hips as far back as possible into the seat for proper positioning.
