Q'Straint opens new research facility

Posted on April 3, 2014

Q’Straint opened a new state-of-the-art research facility exemplifying the company’s leading edge innovation in advancing the safety and effectiveness of wheelchair passenger travel.  

The iQ Research Center of Excellence will push further innovation and enhance the company’s product development capabilities. The facility features state-of-the-art technologies such as a HYGE crash simulation system and Phantom high-speed cameras to help study the dynamics in a crash environment as they relate to wheelchair passengers.

“The investment in the iQ Research Center of Excellence underscores the Q’Straint commitment to advancements in research and development,” said Bob Joseph, Q’Straint VP, business development. “Our new crash simulation system allows us to now study, test, certify and bring new products to market quicker than ever before, thereby improving safety for everyone while at the same time reinforcing our position as a global technology leader within the industry.”

The new iQ Research Center of Excellence and crash simulation system are located in Q’Straint’s Whitstable, East Kent, U.K. location. Currently only a limited number of HYGE dynamic crash simulation systems exist in the world.
