Surrogate Wheelchair SWC030

To ensure that we had a surrogate wheelchair that was absolutely true to the prescribed dimensions of ISO10542 Annex E, we decided that we would design and build a model with a true Centre of Gravity that could be taken beyond 85kg mass for the purpose of dynamically testing both Brotherwood Automobility conversions and restraint systems being utilised or designed for future use.

Surrogate SWC030 is the successful model to emerge from a 3 year R&D programme.  It is supplied with inflatable wheels and certified by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) to ISO 10542 Annex E.  Beyond the standard 85kg, a second set of wheels is supplied to take the testing through 120kg, 140kg, 160kg and 190kg.
