Often inaccurately referred to as “brakes,” wheel locks are not used to stop a moving wheelchair. Wheel locks keep a stationary wheelchair stationary, occupied or not. Whether controlled or in motion, wheel lock style and performance impact functional tasks and safety in varying environments.
Secure wheel locks facilitate safer transfers in and out of the wheelchair. However, any part of the lock that crosses the transfer path can create a skin integrity hazard to the user’s buttocks. Furthermore, wheel locks that cross the path of propulsion can injure fingers when the user is actively propelling. Adequately assessing how a wheel lock is attached and positioned when engaged and disengaged can reduce the risk of injury.
Even an excellent wheel lock may require maintenance over time. The wheel lock function should be reassessed if changes in wheel size, tire type, air pressure, wheel-mounted power assist devices, or axle position. Loose or rotated wheel locks will not function properly. This can allow a wheelchair to move during functional tasks, such as transfers, increasing the risk for falls and injury.
The wheelchair user’s functional independence, upper body strength, and endurance with propulsion should be assessed to select the appropriate wheel lock. The user must engage and disengage the wheel lock confidently and consistently. When in doubt, different trial styles of wheel locks ensure the user is matched to the optimal safety. There are a variety of wheel lock styles available to meet the specific need and abilities of every wheelchair user. Newton, Motion Composites’ high-performance parts and accessories division, offers several ingeniously designed, ultralightweight composite wheel lock solutions.
