Headrest for increased safety

Our new AMF Bruns Futuresafe 2.0 Headrest (including back rest) ensures transport is safer for wheelchair occupants and we are proud to be the first service in Australia to provide this headrest safety system. An easy-to-use device that simply swings around to lock into position directly behind the wheelchair occupant, providing protection and preventing injury in the event of a rear end collision.

Our experience

Our experience in wheelchair transport led us to realise there was a need to improve the safety for wheelchair occupants whilst travelling, by adding a head and back rest to the service.  After considerable research we found the most suitable option to be the crash tested AMF Bruns Futuresafe 2.0 Headrest.
