HighTower® from B&D Independence, a BraunAbility company

World's First Vertical Docking System Eliminates Ground Clearance Issues

In traditional automatic wheelchair securement systems, a pin beneath the wheelchair and docking system installed in the floor is used to secure the wheelchair in place. The HighTower is the first vertical docking system engineered for power wheelchairs. By keeping your securement system to the side of the wheelchair verses the bottom means a significant increase in ground clearance so you can be confident that your wheelchair won't be getting caught on any obstacles.

Unrivaled Security and Stability 

 

The HighTower docking system also improves your overall stability, making you safer than ever before in your vehicle. B&D Independence, the leader of transfer seat bases for the mobility industry for over 30 years, created the HighTower and tested with the University of Michigan's Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) to conduct crash testing for the HighTower docking system. See further information about safety testing at UMTRI's website here. B&D is also a member of the Committee on Wheelchairs and Transportation, the foremost leader in safety and testing related to power wheelchairs and their securement systems.

Easy to Operate

Installation and operation of the HighTower docking system is designed to be simple. A frame bracket sits between the seat and frame of the wheelchair and the rod to the HighTower installed to this bracket. The HighTower dock is then installed in the console area of the vehicle providing an easy solution for your securement needs.
