Q-Straints – Manual Securement System
The manual locking system is retractable and is an integrated 4-point wheelchair passenger securement system. Each component is designed, engineered and tested to work as one cohesive system. In the event of a collision or sudden stop, the system isolates the forward forces of the occupant from those of their chair by direct ing the chair's forces to the vehicle floor
EZ Lock Docking Systems
The electronic wheelchair E-Z docking system automatically secures your wheelchair to the van's floor, making a wheelchair user’s transport both safe and convenient.
The automatic docking base allows the wheelchair user driver or passenger to lock their wheelchair into place independently of others.
The casing is sturdy 3/16 inch powder coated steel. Locking Jaws are 1/4 inch steel coated with a permanently bonded lubricant. Entry into lock is mechanical and the release is attained by an electrical pull solenoid. There is an emergency mechanical release that is also incorporated as a safety measure (in case the vehicle loses battery power). The base lock is mounted to the vehicle floor and acts as a receiver for the interfacing pin that is mounted to the wheelchair.
The Wheelchair Bracket: The interface bracket is mounted to the wheelchair allowing it to lock into docking base. The docking system can accommodate a wide array of wheelchair styles, including both manual and power wheelchairs. Although we provide an interface for most of the wheelchairs currently on today’s market, it is advisable for you to come into VMI Mobility Center for a fitting to ensure we have a system appropriate for your particular wheelchair. It is helpful for us to have the name of the manufacturer, your wheelchair model and model number, and to note any accessories that might interfere with the bracket installation (i.e. reclining or elevating seat, vent tray etc).
The Control Panel: The Main User Interface for electronic EZ LOCK System. Functions include release, alarm buzzer deactivation for unoccupied use, and an array of warning indicators. A green light signifies locking jaws are completely closed and system is safe to use. A yellow light means locking jaws are not completely closed, and that the user should exit and then re-enter base lock. Red light indicates system has been deactivated and is for unoccupied use only.
