Magic Mobility were thrilled that our Retractable Docking Pin was awarded ‘Most Innovative New Product for 2016’ at the ATSA Independent Living Expo in May. Clare Daff our Engineering Manager was at ATSA to graciously accept the award.
The retractable docking pin allows a wheelchair to be easily secured inside a car, allowing the wheelchair user to drive their car from their wheelchair. When the pin is not in use, it retracts safely inside the wheelchair frame. A pin that permanently hangs below the wheelchair can catch on curbs and obstacles preventing the user from enjoying the freedom a Magic Mobility wheelchair offers. The docking pin is operated from the joystick, is crash tested and can be fitted as standard to any Magic Mobility power wheelchair base and could potentially be fitted to other wheelchairs with modification.
