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.
Vibration Module (AS-0003)
Up to 3 vibration modules can be used with Braze Sentina or Braze Hydra. These modules provide intuitive vibrations to indicate proximity to obstacles. They can be placed in areas such as the backrest, armrests, seat cushions, etc. Intensity of vibrations can be controlled by the knob on the controller module.
Vibration modules are suggested for clients who want tactile feedback to replace or supplement the visual feedback offered by the controller module. However, these modules are NOT recommended for clients with spasticity and/or high sensitivity to vibrations.
