Just how fast?
Watch a comparison of Q’STRAINT ONE vs. Traditional Securement.

CALLING ALL DEVICES

The Q’STRAINT ONE can better accommodate large mobility devices that are increasingly common. From standard wheelchairs to oversized, hulking powered chairs – Q’STRAINT ONE makes securement and transport far less stressful for both passengers and operators.

Extra Space?

EASY & INTUITIVE

Never stress over securement procedures again. With user-friendly features like: color-coded components, easy to reach hook ups, push button locking & unlocking, and audio/visual feedback –  every securement becomes a straightforward process that you can standardize across your fleet.

GET IT RIGHT, EVERY TIME

The extra large securement space and precise positioning of the Q’STRAINT ONE’s securement hooks makes achieving the ideal securement angles a breeze. This feature alone will help eliminate the primary cause of most wheelchair incidents related to improper securement.

EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE

Eliminate tripping hazards, storage worries and misplaced parts. All four retractors are integrated into the platform itself, making it virtually disappear when not in use. That’s it, that’s the system.

FINALLY, ONE APPROACH

Every Q’STRAINT ONE install includes instant access to the ONE APPROACH, a mobile-friendly, QR-Code accessible Quick Checklist & How-to Tutorial conveniently posted in the securement area to give operators even more confidence in the field. No matter the vehicle, wheelchair or operator, keep your approach to securement the same with Q’STRAINT ONE.

“The Q’STRAINT ONE system is a state-of-the-art technology for wheelchair securement safety and it will assist TransNet with our efficiencies considering that securement time is cut in half.”

–Susan Kopystecki, Executive Director at TransNet

SAME FOOTPRINT, MORE ROOM

Q’STRAINT ONE shares the same footprint as the standard securement area you are already using. Yet, the Q’STRAINT ONE actually gives you more room to secure.
See for yourself:

Q'STRAINT ONE true securement space 52" true securement space with traditional retractors

True Securement Space?

‘True Securement Space’ is the space unobstructed by the securement equipment. This is the ‘true’ usable space the operator has to position and secure the mobility device.

How is this possible?

The ‘True Securement Space’ of a traditional securement location is greatly reduced by the size of the retractors themselves, limiting the usable space and making securement increasingly difficult especially considering the size of many modern mobility devices.

Q’STRAINT ONE’s integrated retractors are significantly more compact than traditional securements, giving operators a full 6.5 inches more of coveted ‘True Securement Space’ versus the same sized location with traditional securements.

Why is this so important?

More space means more room to accommodate oversized mobility devices and to secure them safely.

“I truly believe the Q’STRAINT ONE system is the most significant paratransit innovation of the last 30 years. Every securement challenge you can possibly encounter is fundamentally improved with this system.”

–Procurement Manager, Large Eastern Paratransit Agency

THE ULTIMATE PROBLEM SOLVER

Nearly all securement related incidents are caused by 1 of 3 securement challenges that can lead to disaster.
Q’STRAINT ONE eliminates or greatly reduces all 3 issues.

ISSUE 1:

Not anchoring securements properly to the vehicle floor.

Many incidents can be traced back to the beginning of the securement process where an operator fails to properly anchor the securements to the vehicle floor.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED:

The Q’STRAINT ONE eliminates this step in the securement process entirely.

By integrating the securements into the vehicle floor, the securement process begins with the securements already properly positioned. Problem solved.

ISSUE 2:

Not achieving proper belt angles.

Achieving approximately a 45-degree belt angle is essential to putting downward pressure on the mobility device and keeping it secure during routine driving. But as mobility devices have gotten larger and take up more of the ‘True Securement Space’, achieving the desired belt angle has become difficult or even impossible with some devices.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED:

More room between the chair and the securements makes it much easier to achieve the ideal belt angle – particularly with larger devices.

The additional 6.5″ of ‘True Securement Space’ compared to traditional securement can make all the difference in avoiding a serious injury or serious liability.

ISSUE 3:

Improper Occupant Securement Use.

More incidents are caused by improper occupant securement use than improperly securing the mobility device. This isn’t surprising considering that this step comes at the end of the securement process, and often requires significant close personal interaction between the passenger and operator. As a result, occupant securement use is often rushed or even ignored.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED:

The innovative, redesigned occupant securement exclusive to the Q’STRAINT ONE makes it easier than ever to ‘get it right’.

Q’STRAINT ONE occupant securements can be pre-loaded for easier access and the self-tensioning feature ensures better placement on the passenger – eliminating the invasive nature of occupant securement and dramatically improving the experience for both operators and passengers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Q'STRAINT ONE work with foldaway seating?

Yes! The Q’STRAINT ONE can be used with any traditional seating option. Check with the vehicle manufacturer or dealer for availability given your desired floorplan and application.

What if the bus loses power? How do you release the securements?

The Q’STRAINT ONE is equipped with a 12-volt back-up battery that will allow you to release the securements using the emergency release. Watch

Does Q'STRAINT ONE meet WC18?

Yes! Q’STRAINT ONE meets ANSI / RESNA WC18, the industry best practice standard for securement equipment.

Can Q'STRAINT ONE be used to secure scooters?

Yes. While we don’t recommend that passengers remain in their scooter while transported, the larger ‘True Securement Space’ provided by the Q’STRAINT ONE makes it much easier to accommodate larger devices, like scooters. Watch

What about a very wide mobility device - wider than the platform?

A mobility device does not have to be completely on the platform to be secured effectively. The Q’STRAINT ONE platform is the same width (30″) as a traditional securement location and is designed to help guide any mobility device into the proper position for securement. Watch

Can you put multiple Q'STRAINT ONE's in a vehicle?

Yes! The Q’STRAINT ONE system was designed with this in mind. The platform allows multiple systems to be nested together, allowing you to use a Q’STRAINT ONE in every securement location while maximizing the available space in the vehicle. Look

STEP-BY-STEP:

Q'STRAINT ONE Pre-positioned belts and hooks
Q'STRAINT ONE Integrated Passenger Securements

Clear Visual Indicators integrated into the platform help guide the wheelchair into place.

Now secure the chair using the Integrated Retractor Hooks, getting the ideal 45º securement angle every time.

Next, the Pre-Positioned Occupant Belt minimizes awkward positioning and difficult bending while maximizing the personal space for passengers, giving your drivers plenty of room to engage the occupant restraints.

Finally, simple Push-Button Operation with Visual and Audio Feedback allows operators to lock or unlock the securements. The system itself is interlocked with the vehicle, automatically locking once the vehicle starts moving, eliminating any possibility of operator error.
