Braze Mobility

Braze Obstacle Detection Systems

Cars have sensors. Why can't wheelchairs?

Who can benefit?

Any manual or powered wheelchair user 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. It restores dignity to the user by helping prevent collisions that can lead to frustration and embarrassment. Watch Wade Watts use our system to navigate through doorways.
