Wheelchair restraint redesigned after customer feedback


Koller Engineering has taken a wheelchair restraint back to the drawing board after receiving customer feedback on its seat belt stalk.

The company, which specialists in the design and manufacture of wheelchair accessible vehicle products, has brought in the design modification to improve accessibility.

Koller has updated the design of the seat belt stalk on all wheelchair restraints using the company’s TITUS harness in response to customer feedback.

The seat belt stalk has been redesigned moving the buckle by 90 degrees for easy access when using on wheelchairs.

“We consistently listen to our customers and take on board their comments,” said Andy Nurrish Koller sales manager.

“The new update comes following feedback on the buckle orientation. Our in-house designers went back to the drawing board and created a modification to the seat belt stalk to allow it to sit at a different angle.

“This revision will help give those fitting the restraint easy access, making it very convenient to use which in turn will save time when fitting and removing.”

The new product update is now available on all TITUS harnesses. TITUS provides maximum passenger comfort and safety and can be used as a ‘conventional’ two-point lap and diagonal harness, or as a three-point harness.

TITUS has been crash tested to ISO 10542 for use individually or as a part of Koller’s combined restraint systems.
