Q'Straint introduced the world's first fully integrated 4-point wheelchair passenger securement system, the industry standard for more than 25 years. 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 directing the chair's forces to the vehicle floor. A complete 4-point system includes:
- 4 wheelchair restraints to secure wheelchair to the vehicle floor
- Occupant securements - lap and shoulder belt that integrate to the rear wheelchair restraints
- Floor anchorages - installed in the vehicle floor Installation and operator instructions
- Warranty registration card.
The QRT series of retractors are the easiest and fastest-securing 4-point systems available today. These systems allow drivers to secure a wheelchair in less than 15 seconds, while reducing the risk of driver injury and drastically reducing vehicle wait times for transportation operators.
