This is a simple modification to the traditional wheelchair by Jerry Ford. What it does is automatically stop the wheelchair from rolling away if the wheelchair occupant gets up to switch chairs or to reach something. This invention prevents the chair from rolling away from under the occupant by accident which can cause falls and serious injury.

The automatic brake system works like an airport cart in the sense that somebody has to either be pushing a lever at the rear handles OR the occupant has to be firmly planted in the sea for it to move.
