REV Group, a manufacturer of industry-leading specialty vehicle brands and provider of parts and services, has extended its partnership with Indianapolis-based IMMI to offer their new Per4Max four-point seatbelts exclusively in REV Ambulance brands.
The Per4Max seatbelt is a four-point seatbelt that enables ambulance crews the freedom to administer patient care while remaining safely buckled up.
The Per4Max also includes an exclusive controlled decelerator inside the belt, which is designed to “ride down” the force on the body that occurs during a crash.
Testing has shown that in a severe crash, Per4Max’s controlled decelerator has the potential to reduce the severity of g-force related injuries to the head and chest of ambulance crews. Only Per4Max provides this newly designed advanced safety technology.
