Thank you for placing your confidence in our shower trolleys. They have been engineered from quality materials and hand-made with care to fulfil the requirements of the healthcare industry. Your trolley will give years of trouble-free service if used and cared for in accordance with our directions.
Before using your shower trolley, please take the time to read our Operation Guide carefully and familiarise yourself with the controls and operation of the unit.
It is important to assess that this equipment is suitable for your patients clinical needs.
Modsel offers a range of trolleys designed for a wide variety of facilities and types of use.
To steer the trolley, press the corner GREEN pedal on the base down fully to activate steering or engage the steering bracket if fitted. Lift the pedal to release. To brake when parked, press the corner RED pedals down fully to activate each castor brake. Lift the pedal to release.
To raise the trolley top, pump down on the GREEN raise pedal on the trolley base to raise the top. To lower the trolley top, press down and hold the RED lower pedal on the trolley base to lower the top.
To tilt the trolley top for drainage, lift the GREEN release lever on the foot end of the trolley top. Always ensure the top is supported to control speed of tilt.
To operate the dropsides, lift the BLACK release levers at both ends together at the same time. Ensure the dropside is supported to control speed of lowering and push back under to catch and hold. When the dropside is lifted into its upright position, it will automatically lock.
To remove for cleaning, unscrew the hose nut under the trolley top. To re-install, tighten the hose nut firmly by hand.
To remove or replace the bath liner or mat, twist the two liner retainer clips under both sides of the trolley top a quarter turn. Pull tab down to remove. Replace in reverse order.
To raise and lower the trolley top, press the UPWARD facing arrow on the handset to raise. Press the DOWNWARD facing arrow to lower. To operate the backrest (option), press the UPWARD facing arrow labeled as backrest on the handset to raise. Press the DOWNWARD facing arrow to lower.
The number of operations per charge will vary according to the loading of the stretcher. Do not continually run the battery to low charge as this will gradually reduce the battery life. Regular charging of the battery is recommended. Low Battery Warning: On hearing an audible tone from the unit during use, remove the battery for charging immediately. Failure to comply with this will result in shortening of battery life.
To remove the battery, squeeze the lever under the end of the battery to release the lock and then pull away from the control box interface connection, allowing the battery to continue resting on its slide support. Carefully lift the battery out. To install the battery, lift the battery into position and rest on its slide support. Push the battery firmly into the control box interface until you hear the lock click.
The wall charging unit can be mounted as desired and must be connected to a standard 240V power point. When power is on, a green light on the charging unit will be illuminated. Action of removal and replacement of the battery on both the charger and the trolley is similar, except that the charger is mounted vertically. An orange light will be illuminated during charging and will switch back to green when the battery is fully charged. Charging time may take up to 4 hours. Battery may be left on charger until required.
Position the shower trolley next to the patient’s bed. Raise trolley to a sufficient height to clear bed and move the shower trolley top over the bed. APPLY BRAKES TO THE TWO WHEELS NEAREST THE OPERATOR, lower trolley top down until it presses firmly onto the mattress. Lay trolley liner out onto mattress then transfer patient onto trolley (the use of a slide sheet is recommended). Raise trolley top to clear the bed. Release brakes taking care that the patient is restrained. Move slowly away from bed. Pull dropside up until it locks pack into position. TROLLEY MUST NEVER BE WHEELED WITHOUT BOTH DROPSIDES LOCKED IN THE RAISED POSITION. NEVER LEAVE THE PATIENT UNATTENDED ON THE TROLLEY. WHEN HANDLING PATIENTS, SURGICAL GLOVES MUST BE WORN.
Adjust height of the trolley to a suitable working height for showering. Trolley may be tilted either during showering or immediately after to allow for water drainage. Locate the drain hose to a position suitable for water drainage. NEVER LEAVE THE PATIENT UNATTENDED IN THE SHOWER. WHEN HANDLING PATIENTS, SURGICAL GLOVES MUST BE WORN. Upon completion of showering, hook the drain hose in the provided location on the trolley end rail with the retaining hook. Return the patient to bed following the above guidelines, taking into account your organisations safety and manual handling procedures.
