Awarded at Busworld Kortrijk 2013 The Quantum ™ The transportation industry's first fully automatic rear-facing wheelchair securement station. Combining transportation insight, intelligent technology and high quality construction, Quantum lets wheelchair and scooter passengers board the bus or train, position their chair and simply push a button to secure themselves in a stable and safe rear-facing position. All in under 25 seconds — without requiring the driver to leave their seat to help. Let Everyone Enjoy The Ride Improve passenger safety, eliminate tip-overs and reduce operator involvement by deploying Quantum — the world's first automatic wheelchair securement system. 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. G E T A L L T H E A N S W E R S AT : QSTRAINT.COM/QUANTUM
