EZ Lock Wheelchair Dock Assemblies Improve Safety

Similar to the goals for all Braun handicap vehicle conversions, the EZ Lock wheelchair dock is durable, easy to use and safe. The restraint system holds the wheelchair anchored to the floor of the vehicle whether an individual is riding or driving.

The docking base attached to the floor locks the wheelchair in place. The chair easily glides into position due to the unique base design. After users position the wheelchair and lock it in place, a sophisticated electronic system ensures the base is stable. Riders who use seat belts in conjunction with the reliable docking system stay safe and secure during the ride.

How the System Works to Keep Occupants Safe

The EZ Lock restraint system is a simple device that will not detract from aesthetics yet utilizes advanced technology. After mounting the base to the floor, users simply roll the wheelchair into the proper position and it automatically locks into place.

The electronic system has built in safeguards that monitor the wheelchair’s status while the vehicle is in motion. The status instantaneously displays on an easy to read control panel with all functions featuring soft-touch switches and lights for convenience.

After locking in the wheelchair and starting the ignition, safeguards offer additional protection to the occupant. Once the driver has turned on the engine, the chair is secure during transportation because the locking base is unable to release its hold on the wheelchair until the engine turns off. If the chair fails to lock into the base properly, the system sends an alert about the problem so the user can fix it before the vehicle starts moving.

Upon arrival at the destination, the system releases the wheelchair at the push of a single button. A manual release is included for emergencies. EZ Lock is the best safety restraint system of its kind because it offers improved independence and enhanced mobility to users.
