Testimonials

I am very impressed and 100% satisfied with the automatic locking system. It has kept several of our residents free from falls and even allowed them to become independent with transferring. I love the “unlocking” feature that allows us to still be able to pull the wheelchair when we are ambulating residents who are using a walker and the fact that we can still fold up the chair is awesome.

We recently purchased a wheelchair with the Safer Automatic Wheelchair Wheel Lock system installed. Working with my peers, we all had the same idea of who this would best be suited for. Months later it has done exactly what we needed. We have reduced the amount of falls by this resident. First of all the design is basic and effective while not affecting the basic w/c functions. It has required no maintenance and has performed flawlessly. People who work in this setting know that staff are often hard on wheelchairs and that optional equipment has a tendency to break. This has not been the case with this system. The Saferlock system also allows the chair to fold up for transport and storage. I do not know of another system that can do this without being cumbersome or adding a significant amount of weight for the system. We recently tried another w/c lock system from a different company. This system was cumbersome. It did not effectively lock the wheels against retropulsion and could only be mounted on a fixed armrest chair. In a facility we need the options of removable armrest to accommodate different patients. We have since returned this different wheelchair as we prefer your system.

We currently have 2 units on our wheelchairs and have been very satisfied with their function.  The residents like the fact they are less obvious than other products we have used.  We like that the chairs seem to be more secure in the locking mechanism and that the chairs can still fold for transporting.

We use the Safer wheelchair locks at our facility.  We strive for the best care possible.  To do that, we feel that this is the best product.

Overall design has proven to be durable and easy for the caregiver to use.  We’ve definitely seen fewer falls in our facility because of this device.

I think the braking system works well, it accomplishes the purpose for what it is designed.  I have not had a resident fall when using one.

I have sold Safer Automatic Wheelchair Wheel Locks for over six months now and after quite a few orders for both chairs and locks installed and with lock kits going directly to the customer, I have had absolutely no complaints as to the ease of installation, use, and overall performance of these products.  Most of my customers have ordered additional products and the ones that haven’t are budgeting for more Safer Locks next year.  All of my customers have said that they feel much better now that their most difficult patients regarding fall potential are so well protected from falling as a result of a wheelchair rollback.  This testimony is coming from a customer base of 25 to 30 strong.

As an occupational therapist and rehabilitation program manager in a skilled nursing facility I have been very pleased with the Safer Automatic W/C Wheel Lock.  It is easy to use and does not require frequent adjustments.  I have noticed fewer falls with patients using this device,  which in turn has led to fewer injuries.

We have incorporated the Safer Lock Wheelchairs into our fall prevention program and have seen positive outcomes resulting in fewer falls for our high risk residents.  The Safer Lock is the ideal wheelchair for any long term care resident.

I am a nurse who has worked in long term care for 16 years now, so as you can imagine I have experienced different levels of safety products/accessories for wheelchairs over the years.  My facility recently purchased the Saferlock wheel locking system for one of our residents.  The system we were using at the time could not be utilized by someone that requires an oxygen cylinder attached to the wheelchair.  The Saferlock system was able to accommodate  our needs.  Since the purchase of this system, this particular resident has had no falls related to transfers to and from w/c.  I would recommend this system to other healthcare providers.

I am a PT and clinical specialist for Aegis Therapies and am based out of RCC.  We have had 5 residents fit with this system and we are happy to report that none have had any falls related to their w/c locking systems since that time.  We have had t provide some staff training and retraining so that they are using the system properly but have found them to be effective in decreasing our number of falls in the facility.  We look forward to continuing to work with you to meet our residents’ safety needs.

I am so happy about the Safer Automatic Wheelchair Wheel Lock systems.  In the spring of 2008, I added it to my stable of products that are sold by my company into the Long Term Care Industry.  In July, I seriously injured myself with a bad fall and spent 3 months using this wheelchair.  The locks work flawlessly every time and have been a life-saver for me.

As an independent medical sales representative, I have the option and privilege of carrying products I believe in.  I knew immediately that this product could SAVE LIVES.  Personally and professionally I have heard time and time again “they fell and broke their hip, ended up with pneumonia and never made it back to the facility, or home again”.  Every time I present the Safer Automatic Wheelchair Wheel Locks, I love to “wait” and see the staff’s faces as I demonstrate the locking feature.  They always, look at each other and say “you know who could use this…”?  The facilities I call on are all looking to prevent, and investing in prevention is SO much more cost effective than paying for care.  I feel so fortunate to be able to bring this product to skilled facilities and rehabilitation facilities in my area.

The Automatic locking system allows our residents to participate in meaningful activities while maintaining safety, which is of utmost importance.
