Q'Straint to Launch inQline at Rehacare

Q'Straint announced that they will be launching inQline at Rehacare in Düsseldorf, September 28, 2016 - October 1, 2016. inQline (patent pending) has been developed to integrate both winch and retractor systems, removing the need for two separate systems in vehicles. As the first system with the ability to steer a wheelchair passenger as they enter a vehicle, inQline offers much smoother loading. Another first is the ability for the system to offer automatic tensioning once the passenger is in place, offering new levels of safety and flexibility. Utilising research & development facilities in both the UK & US, Q'Straint designed inQline to embody the company ethos to keep the safely of wheelchair passengers at its core, building on previous products and feedback from the industry. Dramatically reducing rearward excursions in crash scenarios, inQline has been tested to comply with international standards with wheelchairs up to 200kgs, at the recently unveiled iQ testing facility. A key feature of inQline is the innovative thumb controller allowing complete control of the loading and unloading of wheelchair passengers. With the unique ability to steer the wheelchair, inQline offers a truly safe and effective load and unload experience without the usual tendencies for wheelchairs to go off track or get lodged due to uneven weight distribution, large castors, or vehicles parked on uneven surfaces. With the ever increasing reduction in space inside wheelchair accessible vehicles, it is becoming increasingly difficult to ensure all traditional restraint systems are fully tensioned. inQline removes that issue due to its ability to automatically tension once the passenger is in place in the vehicle. A ‘final squeeze’ of the restraint webbing ensures that the passenger is transported in a safe and secure fashion, whilst reaching a new level of ride comfort. The inQline system consists of two units, small enough to be placed under the seats of vehicles or built into the drop floor pan, but with the additional benefit of being able to be installed in multiple orientations. This gives vehicle converters total confidence that inQline can meet a maximum number of configurations across different vehicles, while continuing to provide the stability necessary for safe transportation.
