Convaid Introduces Red brake Handles on all Pediatric Strollers, Pediatric Wheelchairs and Adult Wheelchairs in Line with International Safety Regulations


Convaid Inc. introduced new bright red brake handles on all its pediatric strollers, pediatric wheelchairs, and adult wheelchairs to conform to new international safety regulations recently announced in Australia and New Zealand strollers code AS/NZS 2088:2000 . Many of Convaids' customers take advantage of the advanced mobility products and tend to travel extensively internationally and domestically. Convaid specifically wanted to provide reassurance to its customers that wherever they travel, their wheelchair would be compliant with local safety regulations in Australia and New Zealand by specifically denoting a red brake handle. In the future it is hoped that the uniform acceptance of making a brake handle red, will assist caregivers around the world in understanding this important safety mechanism.

Many children are injured every year when the stroller they are in rolls away from the caregiver and into a hazardous situation. The new red brake handle is highly visible, which should reduce these incidents.
