Example of a crash test according to ISO 7176-19 - a wheelchair with a 4 point tie down system

The tie-down equipment used during this test, lived up to ISO 10542-2 but if the equipment is not installed/used correctly it can still go terribly wrong.  The adjuster of the lap belt was damaged by a metal part on the wheelchair frame, which caused the safety belt to tear and threw the occupant out of the wheelchair. It is extremely important that the tie-down equipment be used correctly.
