Unoccupied Wheelchair Restraint (UWR) from B&D Independence, a BraunAbility company

World's First Manual Wheelchair Restraint Keeps Chair Free of Additional Equipment

The UWR is the first of its kind – this locking restraint offers a powered release that doesn't add bolts or pins to your manual wheelchair. You've worked hard to personalize your mobility aids, and the UWR protects that personalization by keeping additional pins and bolts off the chair frame. Simply lock into place in your lowered-floor accessible vehicle or full-size van and transfer into the driver or passenger seats. Your manual chair will remain in an upright position to make your transfer into the chair simpler and safer than ever before. 

Foldable Operation Saves Space in Your Vehicle

 

When not in use, the UWR folds up compactly to regain useful cabin space in your vehicle. With just one hand, pull the handle to unlock, lower, and release the handle to lock the mechanism into place. Your wheelchair frame can then be secured to the clasps.
