RERC on Wheelchair Transportation Safety
This is a website for the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Wheelchair Transportation Safety. It covers the R&D, design and research that are going into the technical and usability issues related to using a wheelchair as a seat in a motor vehicle. This issue applies to anyone who does not transfer out of a wheelchair and into a vehicle seat... kids in school buses, adults commuting in para and public transit, riding or driving in personally owned vans, etc. The research and development portion of their program includes six project areas that address many transportation issues confronted by wheelchair users, including entering and exiting vehicles and appropriate levels of wheelchair crashworthiness, wheelchair securement, and occupant restraint in different types of vehicles and transportation modes. Development and implementation of national and international voluntary industry standards, transfer of proven concepts in new technologies and procedures to the real world, and dissemination of new and existing knowledge to key stakeholders are also fundamental activities that are critical to the goals of the RERC WTS.
