AMF-Bruns of America has been a global market leader in wheelchair and occupant securements for over 60 years. We manufacture wheelchair securement products, occupant restraint systems and associated equipment for the safe transportation of special-needs people.

AMF-Bruns introduced the first four-point system for wheelchairs and occupants in the 1970’s. We invented a wheelchair retractor system that is self-locking and self-tensioning to secure the wheelchair. AMF-Bruns was the first to pass an anchorage system crash test and 20G dynamic crash test.
Safety is key at AMF-Bruns. All production work is completed in accordance with the ISO 9001 standard. We have a state-of-the-art, in-house, accredited, test center for research and approval tests. AMF-Bruns uses third-party independent testing facilities to provide unbiased testing results while ensuring accurate testing and reporting.

AMF-Bruns’ Protektor System is a wheelchair and occupant restraints system stabilizing passengers in a collision. All three versions -- Platinum, Black and Silver – are single tensioning, have foot release levers and are available with J-hook, carabiner and loop.
EasyPull is AMF-Bruns’ innovative winch and restraint securement system. It pulls a wheelchair and passenger into a vehicle up a ramp. Attached to the front of the wheelchair, it effortlessly draws the wheelchair inside. Once in place, EasyPull’s restraint system secures the wheelchair to the vehicle.
AMF-Bruns’ Hide-A-Way is the bus industry’s only securement system in which the restraints are fully-integrated into the floor -- freeing up valuable floor space and increasing passenger capacity. Passengers seats, which fold up, can be installed directly over the restraints.
AMF-Bruns’ Head & Backrest anchorage system is installed in minivans or full-sized vans. The system turns inwards toward the vehicle wall when the vehicle is without a wheelchair. A single seat can easily be fitted to the empty position.
AMF-Bruns’ Head & Backrest anchorage system can withstand 15G rear and 20G frontal collisions. Crash and sled tests show the highest level of safety in a rear impact. It has an emergency release and meets all applicable regulations.
AMF-Bruns’ Smart Ramps are wheelchair ramps for minivans or full-size vans which make it easier to transport wheelchair passengers, speeding up entry and exiting considerably. They are available in different lengths and are made of lightweight, perforated, non-slip aluminum metal.
AMF-Bruns’ Channel Ramps are multiple, aluminum-made ramps positioned side-by-side on the edge of the vehicle door for side entry. The wheelchair rolls over the ramps into the vehicle. When not needed, they can be conveniently stored in the vehicle.
AMF-Bruns’ Sidesteps are horizontal and attach to the side of a minivan or full-size van. They improve vehicle access for wheelchair passengers by making it easier for them to enter and exit the vehicle. Sidesteps help reduce injury and falls and are available in three versions: Electric, Manual and Rigid.
AMF-Bruns’ European-brand of passenger seats is called Smartseats, which continuously receive high ratings in design, comfort and materials. Smartseats provide extra comport and support with headrests and unlimited options.
