Regardless of which country or state we live in, and regardless of laws and regulations, restraints are safer and should be fitted to all wheelchair accessible sidecars.


In the following crash test video, you will see that the safest method of restraining a wheelchair and it's occupant, is four attachment points and a seat belt.

1. No Securement
2.Using Only Two Securement Straps
3. Using Four Staps Correctly Attached & Tensioned
4. No Occupant Seat Belt
5. Wheelchair Safety Belt Only
6. Pelvic Safety Belt Positioned Too High
7. Pelvic (Lap) Correctly
Positioned
8.Pelvic & Shoulder (Lap & Sash) Correctly Positioned
9. Different Chair Types
