In vehicles for the transport of people with reduced mobility (PRM) and ambulances for collective transport (Type A2) in which the user moves in their own wheelchair, ergonomics and safety are essential. Conventional restraint systems require the anchors to be placed on the floor guides after positioning the chair, and their subsequent disassembly before removing it, causing a slow and complex loading and unloading process. In addition, the traditional system for fixing the anchors and the seat belt by the professional is uncomfortable and in many cases ineffective.
With IntegratedWAV the anchors are integrated into the floor and roof of the vehicle so they do not pose any obstacle to interior mobility. Once the chair is located, the fastening elements and the seat belt are removed from the floor without the need for any prior assembly process. And the unloading is much easier since they are collected automatically thanks to the seven retractable reels that make up the system.
In combination, the HANSWAV head restraint device for wheelchair users improves the level of safety and comfort for users and is very easy to use by professionals who provide their service in this type of vehicle.
