Q'Straint, Inc. Key Developments

Q'straint Opens New iQ Research Center of Excellence Facility

Q'Straint has announced the opening of a new research facility exemplifying the company's edge innovation in advancing the safety and effectiveness of wheelchair passenger travel. The company announced the opening of the iQ Research Center of Excellence, a new research facility which features technologies such as a HYGE(TM) crash simulation system or test sled. The iQ Research Center of Excellence will push further innovation and enhance the company's product development capabilities. This facility features technologies such as a HYGE(TM) crash simulation system and Phantom high-speed cameras to help study the dynamics in a crash environment as they relate to wheelchair passengers. The new iQ Research Center of Excellence and crash simulation system are located in Q'Straint's Whitstable, East Kent, UK location. Currently only a limited number of HYGE dynamic crash simulation systems exist in the world.

Q'Straint Introduces Revolutionary New Fully Automatic Wheelchair Securement System

Q'Straint, Inc. has 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 wheelchair and scooter passengers 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 the past, drivers would take additional time to affix straps to harness the chair, potentially invading the passenger's personal space. With Quantum, all passengers are treated equally. Wheelchair users 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. Q'Straint engineers applied the highest levels of industrial design to ensure Quantum delivers the performance to keep passengers safe and operators productive. When the vehicle is safely stopped, the Quantum unit is ready for the wheelchair passenger. Once the passenger's wheelchair is centered against the backrest, the press of a button engages the automatic locking sequence. 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.
