New AMF-Bruns Winch System Pulls and Secures Wheelchairs into Vehicles

Hudson, OH, – With boarding and alighting wheelchair falls on the rise, AMF-Bruns of America has developed Easypull - the world’s first fully-integrated winch system that pulls a wheelchair and passenger into a vehicle up a ramp. Attached to the front of the wheelchair, it effortlessly draws the wheelchair inside. Once in place, Easypull’s automatic restraint system secures the wheelchair to the vehicle. 

Features and benefits include:

  •  Eliminates the need for a person having to physically push and secure a wheelchair passenger into a vehicle.
  • Meets ISO 10542 and Resna WC18 testing requirements.
  • Wireless remote control.
  • Compact design.
  • 2 speed levels / 13.12 ft / 4.02 m.
  • Fully adjustable positioning of the wheelchair inside the vehicle.
  • EMC tested (electro magnetic compatibility). 

“Easypull is a technological breakthrough that eliminates the need for driver or caregiver from physically boarding a wheelchair inside a vehicle,” says Peter Haarhuis, AMF-Bruns of America CEO. “The product is easy to operate and meets all quality and testing requirements.”  

AMF-Bruns provides wheelchair securement and occupant restraint systems. In the 1970’s we invented the world’s first 4-point retractor wheelchair anchoring system. Founded in Germany in 1958, the U.S. distribution facility opened in 2013.
