Blind Spot Sensors For Wheelchairs
We’ve created the world’s first patent-pending blind spot sensors that can be added to any wheelchair, transforming it into a "smart" wheelchair. Our system provides multi-modal alerts to the user regarding location and proximity of obstacles through intuitive lights, sounds, vibrations.
We are honored to serve veterans, are SAM-approved and can sell directly to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We have been featured in their AT National Newsletter. In Canada, we are listed with Medavie Blue Cross.
Our blind spot sensors are based on over a decade of research by a trans-disciplinary team consisting of leading clinical researchers in wheelchair training and assessment, as well as engineers developing state-of-the-art "smart" wheelchairs. We use clinical evidence, user centered design methods, and co-design with users to ensure that our products help users, their families, and therapists achieve their goals for independent mobility.

Blind Spot Sensor Case Study: Phil, US Marine Veteran
Phil, a 68-year-old male veteran of the US Marine Corps uses a power wheelchair and is legally blind. He stated: "Just the other day I ran into a child's stroller. The kid was alright, but it scared me."
Phil needed a system that would help him:
- Identify an obstacle in his environment and provide him with auditory or vibration alerts.
- Allow him to safely operate his power wheelchair at home and in the community.
Phil decided to work with the Braze Mobility System. He had this to say after using the system for 2 months,
"Without a doubt, having [Braze sensors] in both the front and rear has been the cat's meow for me. It is everything I had hoped for and expected. I won't hesitate to recommend it." "It really makes me more mobile, safe, and secure."
