FutureSafe 2.0: The new head & backrest

A road accident without additional support in the head and back area can be very dangerous for a wheelchair occupant. To offer this passenger group the highest level of safety, we launched the patented and crash-tested head and backrest FutureSafe more than 10 years ago.


We have now released a revised version of the FutureSafe with the following advantages:

  • Weight reduction of up to 15 % with the same stability (compared to the previous model)
  • Simple and safe operation via cable pull and push button
  • Swivel arms are locked from the inside; unlocking is done by pulling the red loops
  • New design with lighter and more comfortable cushions; visually matches the vehicle interior
  • Extra comfort thanks to additional cushions for head and back support (optionally available in three sizes)

As usual, the new version of the head and backrest is divided and can be individually adjusted to the person in the wheelchair. When travelling without a wheelchair, it is simply swivelled towards the wall so the interior of the vehicle can be used without restrictions.


Tested in numerous static tensile tests as well as dynamic crash tests, the FutureSafe offers the accustomed safety in the event of a rear impact. In the event of a frontal impact, the integrated shoulder belt provides optimum protection for the wheelchair user. The FutureSafe is used in combination with the PROTEKTOR occupant and wheelchair restraint system to ensure maximum safety.
