Nearly 80% of ambulance accidents that result in serious injuries and fatalities for EMTs occur during frontal collisions.* After years of research and development, MBrace is the next level in advanced safety to better protect our first responders. When a frontal collision occurs, a sensor detects the impact in a fraction of a second. Airbags are deployed from the multi-point harness, protecting the first responders head and neck. MBrace is the first of its kind in the ambulance industry, and only available on Horton Emergency Vehicles. MBrace includes a restraint system that gives EMTs the freedom to move and work while remaining safely buckled up.
