FORCE = MASS times ACCELERATION

An abrupt acceleration, imposed upon the human body by a collision between a person in motion and a stationary object, or by an object striking a stationary individual, can cause injury which may be fatal. source: The Oxford Companion to the Body 2001

SAE Compliance is a critical initiative that Ferno EMS has tasked its engineers to address.  Products that are SAE compliant should be easy to integrate, built with unquestionable performance, and cost-effective. Added to our SAE compliant line of products is:

Ferno's Secure Lock+ Storage Bracket Secure Lock+ securely attaches to stair chairs using a fastener and can be added to the back of the ambulance where space is a premium. securelock-1.jpg


  1. Secure Lock+ meets global crash test regulations and is a simple to use, safe, and low-profile design which permits use in varying ambulance makes and models.

  2. For Type 2 vehicles or other “Van” style ambulances, Secure Lock+ is cross-compatible with several stair chair manufacturers.
