Marion Ivy Decena (left), division manager of Invention Development Division of the Department of Science and Technology – Technology Application and Promotion Institute(DOST-TAPI), and Redentor Noche (right) during the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement. The idea all began when Heñosa, who was a driver for almost 15 years, experienced and observed brake fluid leakage while driving. Knowing the danger posed by such condition, he developed an anti-loose brake device to be attached along the fluid pipes of each wheel assembly particularly for PUV. When a leak occurs, he said that the device will automatically lock the damaged assembly and cut off the supply of brake fluid to it.
