FutureSafe Securement System Helps Wheelchair Users with Upper Extremity Issues

HUDSON, Ohio — FutureSafe securement system helps wheelchair users with upper extremity issues, the company announced today.

eFutureSafe / FutureSafe Head & Backrest / Seatbelt Anchorage

The AMF-Bruns head and backrest anchorage system is available in two models:

  • eFutureSafe (automatic)
  • FutureSafe (manual)

With two quick movements, each system locks behind the wheelchair passenger or driver, to provide maximum security.

Features for Both Systems:

  • Allows wheelchair passenger or driver with upper extremity issues to travel safely.
  • Turns inwards toward the vehicle wall when the vehicle is without a wheelchair. A single seat can easily be fitted to the empty position.
  • Can withstand 15G rear and 20G frontal collisions.
  • Crash and sled tests clearly show the highest level of safety in a rear impact.
  • Emergency Release.
  • Meets all applicable regulations.

eFutureSafe vs. FutureSafe

The biggest difference between the two systems is that eFutureSafe is automatic. The hand-controlled adjustment power feature provides customized head, back and neck adjustments. Regarding shoulder belts, eFutureSafe is connected to the vehicle’s B-pillar, using the OEM shoulder belt. FutureSafe contains its own integrated certified shoulder belt.
