Q’Straint Introduces Revolutionary New Fully Automatic Wheelchair Securement System

Q’Straint recently announced the introduction of Quantum, the transportation industry’s first fully automatic rear-facing wheelchair securement station designed for virtually any bus or rail car. The revolutionary new product was developed by combining transportation insight, intelligent technology and a pioneering new approach to securement. After boarding a bus or rail car, Quantum allows passengers who use wheelchairs and scooters to position their chair and, by simply pushing a button, to secure themselves in a stable and safe rear-facing position without driver assistance. The process takes under 25 seconds.

“In addition to ensuring the highest level of passenger safety, keeping buses on schedule and preventing tip-overs, Quantum provides a more respectful experience to the process of wheelchair securement,” said Bob Joseph, Q’Straint VP of Business Development. “Now safe securement and release is fully automated.”

“One of our goals is ensuring the integration of people with disabilities into society -- and transportation is a key enabler,” said Jim Franklin, an advocate with the Action Committee of People with disAbilities. “No one enjoys being singled out when a driver must come back and secure a wheelchair because it always takes time. People with disabilities just want to get on the bus and go.”

With Quantum, people who use wheelchairs have the freedom to board the vehicle and automatically secure their mobility device without assistance. With the push of a button, Quantum’s arms move into position and secure wheelchairs and scooters by capturing the wheels – and then continually adjusts grip as needed throughout the journey. Integration with existing vehicle electrical and interlock systems prevents accidental release of a secured wheelchair while the vehicle is in motion. Quantum is being introduced after one year of extensive field tests in severe driving conditions. Operators will benefit immediately and profoundly with reduced dwell time when securing passengers in mobility devices which will result in more reliable schedules. By safely securing wheelchairs and scooters, Quantum ultimately reduces liability exposure for injuries to mobility passengers as well as to seated or standing commuters who could be injured by unsecured mobility devices.
