The Safe-T-Mate Wheelchair Anti Rollback Device prevents a wheelchair from rolling backward by grabbing the tires as the user attempts to sit or stand. When the user is seated, the anti-rollback device is in standby mode, allowing the chair to move freely in all directions. Caregivers will find this patented anti-rollback device helps prevent falls caused by a wheelchair rolling backward.
The Safe-T-Mate Wheelchair Anti Rollback Device features a center override lever that the caregiver can engage to make backing up an unoccupied wheelchair easy. The lever can be removed without affecting the operation of the anti-rollback device. The safety device is available with an optional battery-powered integrated alarm that sounds when the anti-rollback device is engaged. The device features an adjustable spring tension to accommodate a variety of seat cushions.
How it works. The Anti-Rollback System attaches to the rear of most sling seat wheelchairs. A lever directly contacts the underside of the seat and is mechanically linked to the brake arms. If the user begins to stand, the brake arms clamp down on the wheels, preventing the chair from rolling backward. When the patient is seated, the brake arms automatically unlock, and the chair can continue to roll freely.
The Safe-T-mate Wheelchair Anti Rollback Device is easy to install and is recommended for wheelchair users with poor safety awareness who forget to set the manual hand brakes before exiting or entering the wheelchair. The new advanced design fits most wheelchairs with a tubing diameter of up to 1 inch. An oversize U-bolt kit is available for larger-diameter frames.
