Q'Straint introduces remote release option for Q'POD

Posted on May 9, 2013

Q’Straint announced the availability of a new option for its award-winning Q’POD the Velocity Xpress — a mechanical remote release option that eliminates the need for electrical integration and makes Q’POD installation retrofits faster and less costly.

The release system enables drivers to unlock rear restraints for 15 seconds enabling quicker wheelchair securement and better positioning. The remote release minimizes bending by driver/operators, reducing back injuries and improving securement.

Q’POD’s original Electric XPress Delay remains the default release mechanism with all new orders, but many transportation agencies expressed interest in having the option to choose. With the Velocity XPress remote release, operators can elect to reduce total acquisition costs on new buses they want to outfit with Q’PODs.

Velocity XPress also dramatically lowers the cost of outfitting existing buses with Q’PODs in a retrofit installation. No electricity is required, it eliminates the need for interlock integration and the entire project can be completed in much less time.

The Velocity XPress Remote Release features include:

  • A hydraulic cylinder velocity controller as a mechanical timer.
  • Simplified and less costly installation and integration.
  • Rapid installation process on new or retrofit buses.
  • No electrical connection required for operation.
