Ki's Catalyst Line Passes WC19 Testing

Ki Mobility's Catalyst line of manual wheelchairs with the manufacturer's new transit option has passed ANSI/RESNA WC19 crash testing for wheelchairs used as seating in motor vehicles.

Noting the need for the transit option, Doug Munsey, founder of Ki Mobility, said, "The safe transport of individuals who are not able to transfer out of their wheelchair is of increasing concern to our suppliers, families, clinicians, school districts and funding agencies across the country."

Munsey added that retrofit kits for existing Catalyst chairs are available. The transit option can also be installed at the factory.
