Wheelchairs & Safety Systems

Wheelchairs & Seating Systems successfully
crash tested with 4 point strap-type
securement as of July 27, 2009
*ANSI/RESNA standard WC19 Wheelchairs Used as Seats in Motor Vehicles is a voluntary
industry standard that establishes minimum design and performance requirements for
wheelchairs that are occupied by users traveling in motor vehicles. One of the most important
design requirements of the standard is for the wheelchair to provide four specific attachment
points (see illustration that follows) that facilitate proper and effective securement of the
wheelchair facing forward in vehicles using a four-point, strap-type tiedown that complies with
SAE J2249 Wheelchair Tiedown and Occupant Restraint Systems for Use in Motor Vehicles. The
wheelchair must be successfully crash tested in a 30-mph, 20-g frontal sled test using these
securement points.
Four labeled securement points are crash-tested and
easy to reach on the wheelchair frame.
These securement points permit proper
attachment of 4 securement straps and a clear
path of travel for proper fit of occupant safety
belts.
The following table is a list of wheelchair products that manufacturers have reported as
successfully crash tested with 4-point strap-type securement.
Since May 2002, the WC19 standard requires that wheelchairs be crash tested with a
wheelchair-anchored pelvic safety belt. This belt connects to a vehicle-anchored shoulder belt,
thereby offering the user a potentially better fit of the pelvic belt with reduced interference of
personal space by another individual. The last column of the table indicates whether a wheelchair
was crash tested with and is available with a wheelchair-anchored pelvic belt. Some products are
listed on this page even though they are not compliant with this provision of WC19. They are
listed because these wheelchairs have been sucessfully crash-tested and provide 4 securement
points which improves passenger protection.
The international standard for wheelchair transportation safety, ISO 7176-Part 19, does not
require a wheelchair-anchored pelvic safety belt. Wheelchairs imported from other countries may
be compliant with this standard. Contact the company representative listed below to clarify this
issue.
