Braze Mobility makes blind spot sensor systems that can be installed on any wheelchair and provide the user with feedback about obstacles in their blind spots. No one has eyes on the back of their head, but with Braze sensor systems, you can have eyes on the back of your wheelchair.

Who can benefit?

Anyone who uses a manual or powered wheelchair for mobility can use our obstacle detection system to increase spatial awareness and to improve maneuvering abilities in tight and/or unfamiliar spaces. Our system is especially useful to those with limited upper body mobility and/or low peripheral vision.

How does it help?

Our system helps increase awareness, safety, and confidence in mobility. It restores dignity to the user by helping prevent wheelchair collisions that can lead to frustration and embarrassment. Watch Wade Watts use our system to navigate through doorways.
