DB Series Brake System with Quick Release Disc Brake Hub
The intuitive, stylish ADI patented disc brake systems enable users of all physical abilities near effortless controlled braking and the ability to fully lock the wheels. Utilizing disc technology on wheelchairs, you gain many benefits while eliminating problems caused by the standard over-center locking devices. Features include a patented two piece hub design that maintains quick release wheels, use as deceleration brake when managing ramps, enhances safety & independence, reduces pain by eliminating twisting & repetitive motions, and allows users to roll completely under desks/tables and lock brakes with ease. Disc, caliper, caliper bracket, quick release disc hub, cable, cable housing and lever assembly are included. Disc Brake Systems are available with Variable Lever, Para Levers, or E-Brakes.
Variable Lever - The only manually activated wheelchair brake system on the market.
ADI's patented single brake lever locks both wheels simultaneously with only light pressure, allowing for safer transfers from a non-moving chair, while offering four stages of incremental braking force.
Para Lever - For the paraplegic user, this system provides true wheelchair braking by utilizing bicycle type brake levers with a “lock-up” button for transfers. Users with good hand function and trunk control can independently actuate the left or right side for deceleration, maneuvering or fast cornering.
E-Brakes – For the ultimate in wheelchair braking, “E-Brakes” utilizes a patented electrically actuated brake system to lock both wheels simultaneously. The brake system is activated by a single toggle switch located conveniently on the chair frame, thus getting the brake lever “out of the way" during transfers.
