Q'Straint to host 'Emerging Trends in Wheelchair Transportation' webinar

Posted on June 2, 2017

On Tuesday, June 6 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern, Q’Straint will host a webinar on Metro-Magazine.com, “Emerging Trends in Wheelchair Transportation: New Standards & Technologies,” featuring its National Training Manager Darren Reaume.

Over a quarter century after ADA changed the transportation industry by guaranteeing passengers with disabilities access to public transportation, providers are still struggling to safely secure many mobility devices as large power-chairs and scooters become increasingly popular. Furthermore, transportation providers face growing pressure to find solutions for rising liability, timely service, and dramatic increases in ADA ridership in an evolving industry. As these challenges mount, recent advancements in securement equipment, wheelchairs, and standards have the long term potential to alleviate these securement difficulties for both fixed-route and on-demand services.

This presentation will explore developing ridership and securement dilemmas facing transit providers, and examine how emerging technologies and recent regulatory changes are addressing the previous short comings of primitive securement applications. We invite attendees to engage in a thought-provoking discussion about the challenges they are facing and what the changes discussed mean for the industry and the future of ADA transportation.
