Products

BraunAbility Companion Seat

The BraunAbility Companion Seat is just as it states – a companion. It stands by ready to assist you or a family member get into and out of your domestic minivan.

The Companion Seat is designed for installation in Dodge/Chrysler, Ford and GM minivans. Using the original vehicle seat, the unique power base extends out of the door twenty inches and tilts forward a full six inches to make boarding safe and easy.

A single toggle switch hand-held control controls the automatic functions which allow the passenger or an attendant to operate the seat.

BraunAbility Vangater Series Lift

The BraunAbility Vangater Series lift for a wheelchair has a power tri-folding platform that allows for easy access into and out of a full-size wheelchair van for wheelchair access and ambulatory entry.

With the touch of the button, the machine unfolds the platform into a fully-functional wheelchair lift. Lift operation has three different control options – hand held control, on the lift control, and remote control. The tri-fold feature on the van lift allows for maximum room inside the vehicle.

Bruno Valet

The Bruno Valet is a simple and reliable driver or passenger solution for access to higher vehicles. The Valet provides full power operation to eliminate the twisting, turning and climbing associated with entering and exiting many vehicles. One button control makes operation a snap! The Valet transfer seat includes a high quality, comfort seat and arm rests. The transfer seat utilizes the factory seat belt and meets all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards to ensure a safe ride.

Guidosimplex 906 Accelerator Ring

The New Guidosimplex Detachable Quick-Release Accelerator Ring hand control mounts easily over any steering wheel, and with a push of a button, detaches just as easily. Gently push the ring towards the steering wheel to accelerate and the pressure remains constant at any speed.

The 906 Accelerator Ring allows you to keep your hands on the wheel in a comfortable and natural position that requires very little effort and does not interfere with airbag deployment. An incredibly convenient switch provides power to either the accelerator ring or the gas pedal, allowing ambulatory drivers to drive the vehicle. All installations are performed with minimal impact on the vehicle's existing operating systems.

Guidosimplex All-in-One Driving Controls

The Guidosimplex All-in-One is a unique mechanical brake and accelerator column mounted on the right or left of the steering wheel. No more of the tedious push and pull mechanism that hits your leg, or rods that impede your ingress or egress from the vehicle. The electronic radial accelerator and forward push brake lets you accelerate and brake in your vehicle with only a minimal rotational movement of the hand. There is no dashboard cutting required to install this device and the multiple adjustments in angle and in length allow this device to be installed in almost any vehicle. This device interface also features infrared remote circuitry in order to activate the vehicle’s secondary controls. There are three versions of this lever depending of the type the handle: America (knob handle), Quad Light (handgrip handle) and Quad Support (handgrip handle with support).

Guidosimplex Brake Lever

This new Long-Arm Brake Lever represents our most up-to-date generation of hand control levers. Made entirely of aluminum and coated with embossed rubber, this convenient and durable lever integrates perfectly with the vehicle's interior. Can be installed for either the right or left hand. This innovative design also features a mechanical lever or button that will automatically lock the brakes so hands are free to shift the transmission.

Guidosimplex Duck Clutch

The 'Duck' semi-automatic clutch completely removes the requirement for left leg operation in a manual vehicle. A small lever on the gear knob controls the clutch pedal allowing complete operation of the clutch with the driver's hands. Extremely suitable where an automatic version of the vehicle is not available. Although in essence it is manual, the 'Duck' is 'intelligent'. It is, internally, computer-controlled and performs a 'fly-by-wire' control of the clutch. For instance, the device knows where the 'bite point' of the clutch is and will automatically find it on slight release of the lever. This device allows full clutch control to be performed extremely naturally.

 

Sure Grip Push-Right Angle Hand Control

The Sure Grip Push-Right Angle hand control utilizes a body that doesn't pivot or move when the accelerator is applied. This is different from other Sure Grip products in that the pivot point is on the left-hand side of the wheel and only the handle is able to pivot. The many benefits of the Push-Right Angle hand control are increased leg room, full acceleration without hitting the drivers lap, and easier two handed contact with the steering wheel.

Wheelchair Carrier

Convenience is what the BraunAbility Chair Topper wheelchair carrier is all about. This piece of mobility equipment was developed to assist wheelchair users who are able to transfer from their wheelchair to their vehicle. The chair topper automatically folds and stores a conventional folding wheelchair inside a weather-resistant, car-top compartment.

Now you'll never have to store your wheelchair in the trunk or the backseat of your vehicle, leaving more space inside for additional passengers. The Chair Topper's universal mounting systems ensure that these wheelchair carriers will fit most automobiles and light trucks. It adds only 21 1/2" in height and the plastic out shell gives it a sleek, finished look.

A hand-held remote lets you operate the folding, lifting and storing of your wheelchair. In just 30 seconds, the chair topper is able to lift your wheelchair off the ground and store it in its compartment. These wheelchair carriers are available in driver or passenger side configurations. Due to its horizontal operation, the Chair Topper may be operated in home or public parking garages, with a minimum amount of space required beside the vehicle - a great feature for tight parking situations.
