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.
Braze Hydra (AS-0034)
The Braze Hydra includes 1 Echo Head (offering a 45 degree cone of coverage), and an intuitive LED light display that indicates location and proximity of obstacles. The system allows up to 2 additional Echo Heads to be plugged in (purchased separately).
This system is recommended for clients who want a greater awareness of obstacles in targeted areas and more flexibility in mounting options. For example, Braze Echo Heads could be mounted on the left and right sides of the wheelchair for clients with low peripheral vision or visual neglect.
