BraunAbility Unoccupied Wheelchair Restraint (UWR)
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.
UWR Maintenance and Manuals
After installation, your BraunAbility mobility consultant will schedule a follow-up appointment to assess your system and make any needed adjustments for your safety and comfort. From there, you will need regular maintenance on your docking system every six months – the same recommended maintenance plan for BraunAbility wheelchair accessible vehicles and wheelchair lifts.

Safety Release Mechanisms
In order to manually remove the wheelchair, the UWR is equipped with a manual override lever in the center. This lever can be activated in the event of a power failure and give you peace of mind knowing you'll always have easy access to your wheelchair.
The UWR has a limited 24-month parts/12-month labor warranty. In order to protect your warranty, any repair or replacement work must be completed by a B&D Independence or BraunAbility certified technician.
