Koller Engineering, specialists in the design and manufacture of wheelchair accessible vehicle products, has re-launched its “space-saving” wheelchair restraint range.
The IRiS wheelchair and passenger restraint has been designed to be used where it is not possible to use a four-point tie-down restraint.
Dean Koller, managing director at Koller Engineering, said: “We have seen growing demand for passenger and wheelchair restraints that are adaptable and can be easily stored and fitted into vehicles.
“IRiS does not need front wheelchair tie-down straps; not only is this a unique space-saving feature, but it makes it easy to fit and helps in maintaining a passenger’s dignity. IRiS is also adjustable, so it can fit different width floors, therefore works perfectly in a variety of vehicles.
“Importantly IRiS has been crash-tested to ISO 10542 resulting in complete peace of mind when in use. With its combination of durability and functionality, we wanted to re-launch the product as this wheelchair and passenger restraint can answer many space-saving issues that people experience.”
The restraint uses karabiner straps and an interchangeable TITUS passenger harness to secure and “future-proof” the wheelchair.
