RRS Ratchin Restraint System
The Ratchin is a new easy-to-use front restraint system with heavy duty webbing. Unlike the traditional method of restraining the front of a wheelchair using separate inertia reels, the Ratchin features a synchronised reel function.
This greatly assists belt withdrawal and retraction, and minimises the possibility of the belts ‘binding’. In addition, spring strength remains constant and does not deteriorate if the belts are left extended. In addition, the unit features a manual release for use in the event of an emergency.
Three ISO approved versions of the Ratchin system provides flexibility to fit into different sized conversions.
