For Therapists

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.

Benefits of Blind Spot Sensors for Wheelchairs

Infographic on People Who Can Benefit from Blind Spot Sensors

Anyone who uses a wheelchair could benefit from the Braze system, but especially those who have difficulty with vision in blind spots for any reason. This could include:

  • Decreased upper body or neck mobility
  • A head rest that blocks rear vision
  • The use of an alternative joystick control requiring them to face forwards when driving
  • Low vision
  • Hemispatial neglect
  • And more..

Clients as young as 7 years old, and clients with varying levels of cognition* have successfully used Braze Mobility systems. The system feedback was designed to be intuitive, with all feedback designed to clearly prompt the user to safely navigate the chair. If you are unsure if the client will be able to use the system, ask us about our training app, which indicates whether the client is able to understand the feedback and execute the correct response.

*These devices only provide the driver with information and do not control the wheelchair in any way. They should not be relied upon to prevent collisions.
