PAWRS 3 – Power Assisted Wheelchair Restraint System

The Hook-i PAWRS is an ISO:10542 Compliant combined winch and front restraint system to assist in the loading of a wheelchair and passenger into a rear ramp entry Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.  It has been successfully dynamically tested with heavy wheelchairs up to 190kg.  The PAWRS is a 12V dc powered device that has been endurance cycle tested by drawing a 250kg loaded surrogate wheelchair up a 15° ramp.  On lesser inclines it is capable of pulling greater loads.

As well as being able to handle higher wheelchair weights than most ‘traditional’ 2-part winch and restraint methods, PAWRS offers greater convenience.  No longer is it necessary to squeeze between the seats and the wheelchair to disconnect the winch and connect the front restraints – an  operation which can be quite undignified for the wheelchair user.  As a result the whole loading sequence is much faster and simpler, effectively providing convenience and safety.

EFFORTLESS 3-STEP OPERATION

NO PUSHING • NO STEERING • NO HASSLE

By combining the functions of an electric winch together with a wheelchair restraint system, PAWRS effectively halves the traditional loading process into one simple, fast, easy-to-use device.

Simply withdraw the synchronised belts, fitted with your choice of attachments, and attach to the restraint points on the front of the wheelchair. The wireless remote can then be used to load the wheelchair and passenger into the vehicle at a steady pace, with no risk of roll-back.


REMOTE-CONTROL OPERATION

Although ‘hands-free’ loading is possible, for best practise we recommend that the carer is always positioned behind the wheelchair when loading.

Once inside the vehicle there is no need to attach further front restraints – PAWRS locks in place to secure wheelchairs up to 190kg safely.

Simply attach your choice of rear restraints to complete a safe, proven 4-point restraint system – peace of mind for wheelchair user and carer alike.


pawrs step 1

 Attach the synchronised belts to the recognised anchor points on the front of the wheelchair.

pawrs step 2

 Use the PAWRS power winch function utilising the remote control. The winch function is endurance tested to pull a 250kg load up a 15 degree ramp.

 The attendant should remain closely behind the wheelchair as PAWRS pulls the wheelchair and passenger up the ramp.

pawrs step 4

 PAWRS acts as a front restraint for wheelchairs up to 190kg, leaving just the rear restraints to be attached.
