Q'Straint's Velocity XPress is 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 in 15 seconds, enabling quicker wheelchair securement and better positioning. The remote release minimizes bending by drivers/operators, reducing back injuries and improving securement. Velocity XPress also dramatically lowers the cost of outfitting existing buses with Q'PODs in a retrofit installation. No electricity is required.
