Let Everyone Enjoy The Ride Improve passenger safety, eliminate tip-overs and reduce operator involvement by deploying Quantum — the world's frst automatic wheelchair securement system. Thinking Beyond Safety STEP 2 Quantum's arms move to secure the wheelchair in place, and continually adjust their grip as needed throughout the journey. STEP 1 With the vehicle safely stopped, the Quantum unit is ready for the wheelchair passenger. Once the passenger's wheelchair is centered against the backrest, the press of a button engages the automatic locking sequence. STEP 3 Only when the bus stops at the destination can the Quantum release sequence be engaged so the passenger can disembark. 66 < m ETRO m AGAZINE AUGUST 2014 advertising index The Advertiser Index is provided as a courtesy to METRO advertisers.
