Transportation safety research has shown that the vehicle seat is a key component of the occupant restraint system, and therefore plays a vital role in reducing the risk of injury in a vehicle crash.
APV Test Centre has the experience and capability to confirm that a wheelchair designed for use as occupant seating in a vehicle meets all aspects of the Australian standard. We also have experience testing to ISO and RESNA standards.
Testing can be performed using APV's universal 4-point tie down system or with a customer supplied tie down system. High-speed film imaging captures and records dummy and wheelchair excursions to ensure that requirements of the standard have been met.
