Full Stop: A portable add-on to prevent unwanted wheelchair motion.

Oftentimes, wheelchairs will shift even when the wheel-locking brakes are engaged. Our solution to this problem is an add-on component for wheelchairs which increases the amount of friction between the chair and the ground, thereby preventing unwanted movement while deployed. Our product is to existing wheelchair brakes what a kickstand is to a bike’s brakes. Full Stop provides greater reliability and safety to users who are concerned about their wheelchairs slipping out from under them.
