What Are Blind Spot Sensors?
The Braze Mobility blind spot sensors are a set of ultrasonic sensors that can be attached to any wheelchair, turning it into a "smart" wheelchair. They provide alerts to wheelchair users about objects in the environment using multimodal feedback (light, sound, and vibrations). Our sensors encourage safer navigation and independent driving to people who use wheelchairs.
Anyone who uses a wheelchair can use Braze's blind spot sensors, especially those who...

How Do Blind Spot Sensors Work?
Braze's sensors do more than just alert people to objects around them.
Braze Mobility created the world's first patented blind spot sensors, which can be added to any wheelchair. The sensors enhance a wheelchair user's spatial awareness. Our sensors not only make safe drivers safer, but they promote independence.

Braze Mobility's Blind Spot Sensor Kits
Meet the Braze Sentina Plus, our most popular kit!
The Braze Sentina and two Echo Heads make up the Braze Sentina Plus kit. The system offers both rear and peripheral coverage around the wheelchair.
When an object, wall, or person enters the vicinity of the sensor, feedback such as light, sound, and vibrations (an optional add-on) are sent to the wheelchair user.
Braze Mobility provides a collection of kits for a range of needs and lifestyles, with affordable solutions starting at $1,850 USD.
Blind Spot Sensors: A Smart Wheelchair Solution
Our patented sensors are also known as a smart wheelchair systems (SWCS). They are devices that are embedded (or added) to a person's wheelchair and are meant to enhance safety during wheelchair navigation. There are three kinds of SWCS devices: monitoring, alerting, and intervening technologies.
How Does Braze's Sensors Compare To Other SWCS?
Our system is an effective alerting technology that's clinically-supported, customizable, and affordable for wheelchair users compared to other devices. Our system also empowers users by providing them actionable feedback. As a result, the sensors enhance spatial awareness while leaving them fully in control.
