In 1986, I had a motorcycle accident, resulting in a spinal
cord injury at the level of C5-C6. In the initial years following
my injury, I felt many frustrations regarding the use of
products that were supposedly fabricated to promote
independence for those with impairments such as mine. As
years passed, I started modifying existing products to suit
my special needs, as well as designing new products to
make my life more independent and enjoyable. Many of the
products I design not only have the user in mind, but also the
people assisting with our daily needs. The Anti-Slip Transfer
Board is one such product that has truly enabled myself and
many others to live a more independent and productive life. I
invite you to view the Anti-Slip Transfer Board, as well as the
other products displayed on this site, as high quality, user-friendly and proven many
times over by people in chairs to either meet or exceed expectations.
the GAP by using the
Anti-Slip Transfer Boards
The Anti-Slip Transfer Board is designed to bridge the GAP that exists with transfers in
and out of wheelchairs and/or other seating surfaces. The following attributes explain why
our transfer board is the best available in ensuring user satisfaction, as well as in our
ability as a company to fulfill all transfer board needs, regardless of each individual's
Braiden Enterprises Ltd was founded in 1990 and is a private family company.
The two directors are Sue and John Braiden and they have two daughters,
Jessica, 10, and Blair, 8. The business was founded as a result of Jessica's physical disability and the need
for a better choice of quality disability aids in New Zealand.
John designed and built his first hydraulic wheelchair hoist in 1990 and
manufactured and marketed it under the trade name of GENTLE GIANT TM
Over the ensuing years, Braiden Enterprises Limited have become the leader in
specialist vehicle adaptation and modification for the disabled in New Zealand.
At their Carterton factory they carry out various vehicle adaptations from the
simple hand control to the most complex drive from the wheelchair adaptation.
Over the years, the wheelchair hoists have seen many subtle changes which John
puts down to normal evolution of his products. He is always looking to the future
and is keeping the products up with the latest technology. Apart from wheelchair
hoists, Braiden Enterprises Limited are continually developing new products. One
such recent development is the power access seat unit. The prototype was built
for Jessica and the unit further developed into the current state of micro-processor
controlled technology. John's simple philosophy is that if the disabled person has the ability and desire to
self drive, Braiden Enterprses will find the way.
The UB1000 is a newly developed product from Braiden Enterprises Ltd. The unit fits snugly
beneath the floor of the vehicle and remains out of the way until required for use. This design
leaves the interior of the vehicle to be fully utilised for wheelchair positions and seating.
The unique bi-folding platform which is a Gentle Giant trademark keeps the size of the
unit compact and yet provides the maximum usable length. The unit comes standard with
handrails on both sides of the platform. These are easily lifted and locked into place when in
use and fold away under the bi-folding rear section of the platform.
The UB1000 discreetly closes within its cassette and is protected from road grime and dirt until next required for use.
This unit is ideal for use on larger size vans and
for bus and coach use.
There are 2 models to choose from. The UB1000-M which is a manual pull out platform
carriage and the UB1000-P which is a power out
Gentle Giant TM
Gentle Giant TM Full Platform semi-automatic MODEL IFP5000
This internally mounted hydraulic unit has been a proven winner over
the years. It caters for all types of manual and electric wheelchairs
and is available with an optional extended length platform to cater for
electric scooters and the versatility of taxi use.
The platform is bi-folding which allows the unit to remain very
compact giving ease of handling and good vision through the rear
window of the van.
Gentle Giant TM Access Platform semi-automatic MODEL IAP5000
This unit has all of the characteristics of the full platform unit with the
exception of the platform area. The centre of the platform has been
removed to leave a clear space of 270mm in width. This allows
access through the closed hoist for hand luggage and parcels.
Another of the benefits is being able to push the wheelchair into the
rear of the van by walking directly through the platform behind it and
not having to push from the side.
