Universal Brakes

This sounds simple, but the brakes on a wheelchair are one of the most important features on the chair. For example, it is imperative to make sure the brakes are set whenever someone is getting on or off the device. If a chair is still able to roll, there is a chance that the wheelchair user may put their weight on it and have it slide out from under them. Before someone gets up from a wheelchair they should always be sure to have assistance. Whenever commuting, say on a bus or a van, it is important to keep the brakes locked. Without locked brakes, a sudden stop or turn could spell disaster for the person sitting in the wheelchair.
