Head and back support that offers added protection to a driver or passenger who remains seated in the wheelchair.
The BodyGuard is a head and back support that offers added protection to a driver or passenger who remains seated in the wheelchair. The BodyGuard aims to bridge the gap between a vehicle tested occupant position and that of a wheelchair occupant position offering an ADR compliant back and head restraint.
In case of a rear-end collision, many wheelchairs offer insufficient protection of the back, neck and head. The BodyGuard has been developed to assure the wheelchair user’s safety in case of an accident.
All components of the BodyGuard can be adjusted to suit the needs of the wheelchair occupant including the cushion position and the angle of incline.
Even when the passenger is seated in a wheelchair with a low back rest, the BodyGuard offers good protection of the back, neck and head during a rear end collision. The system has been comprehensively tested and meeting the safety requirements of the departments of transportation in Europe, which are equivalent to Australian standards.
