ASSESSMENT OF A TRANSPORTABLE MOBILITY AID IN SEVERE DRIVING CONDITIONS: AN EXPLORATORY TEST

The Canadian Standards Association is conducting a review of standard CAN3-D409-M84, Motor Vehicles for the Transportation of Physically Disabled Persons. In conjunction with this, CSA is also developing further standards related to transportable mobility aids, called scooters, and securement systems. An exploratory test was conducted to see what forces and displacements to expect when a typical scooter and tie-down system is subjected to severe driving conditions, and what practical considerations need to be examined, if such a test should become part of a standard.
