1 The following method is to be used for testing the stability of a stroller on a horizontal plane:
(a) place the stroller in the manufacturer’s recommended position for use as a stroller with all wheels on a horizontal plane;
(b) with no added weight in the seating unit, place the footrest of the stroller in the lowest manufacturer’s recommended use position;
(c) place a 5 cm wooden cube on the centre of the footrest;
(d) apply a force of 200 N vertically downward on the cube;
(e) note whether the stroller is still in the manufacturer’s recommended use position with all wheels in contact with the horizontal plane; and
(f) in the case of a multiple occupancy stroller, perform the test on each footrest, one at a time and then on each footrest simultaneously.
