32 < m ETRO m AGAZINE NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2014 BUSCON 2014: Technology Showcase Q'STRAINT The Q'Straint QRT-360 is the first four-point, heavy-duty, fully automatic retractable tie-down system designed, engineered, and built to perform successfully in a 30-mph frontal crash when the user of a powered wheelchair is traveling in a motor vehicle while using a commercially available crashworthy lap belt that must be used in the frontal-impact test conducted of wheelchairs under WC19. The new QRT-360 meets these increased standards years ahead of their effective date in 2015. FREEDMAN SEATING CO. Giving its engineers two priorities — safety and comfort — resulted in the Esquire seat. Features include height-adjustable three-point shoulder belts, Knee Saver backrests for increased hip-to-knee room and contoured head rests. Also on display at BusCon was the Eleganza by FMS collection. Ideal for executive shuttles, the Bellagio, Trieste and Napoli seats are available with several different insert styles and upholstery materials, allowing operators to customize the look that fits their needs.
