It's taken from a list of features of a baby pushchair. Hope this is enough context, I just can't figure out what the "posicional dentado" is. Cheers!!

parking brake, cog mechanism

The "posicional" (freno posicional) means it's a parking brake. See parallel descriptions of a particular model:

Bugaboo Cameleon dispone de ruedas giratorias con suspensión ajustable y un manillar telescópico, lo que la convierte en una sillita extremadamente confortable para el niño y de muy fácil manejo para los padres.

Ficha Técnica

Dimensiones abierto: (posición ciudad, con capota) manillar telescópico 91,5/104 alto x 60 ancho x 97/113 largo.
Dimensiones cerrado: 90 x 50 x 28,5.
Peso: chasis+capazo 9kg.
Estructura: aluminio.
Declinación respaldo: 3 posiciones.
Sistema de plegado: muy compacto, separación de silla/capazo del chasis.
***Sistema de frenado: freno posicional dentado.***

big wheels with pneumatic tires

The tires of the 2 big wheels should be inflated to the correct pressure (1 bar/15 PSI) at the time of delivery. Double check this pressure before using your new Bugaboo Cameleon.

parking brake

The parking brake is on the handlebar. It prevents the big wheels from turning. Always apply the parking brake when the stroller is stationary so it cannot roll away. When the handlebar is above the big wheels, the parking brake is on the right on the handlebar, with the release button on the outside.

I think the "dentado" part means the brake engages cog wheels (or toothed wheels). See photo here:

And description here:

Parking Brake
6. The parking brake is a foot-operated bar located between the two rear wheels. Press down on the horizontal bar with your foot. It will locate in the toothed hubs on the inside of the rear wheels and prevent the wheels from turning.
7. To release the parking brake, lift up the bar with your foot.

I'd phrase it as above: "parking brake, cog mechanism"

Reference information:
Espero que te ayude esta referenvia. Tanto el freno de las ruedas como el grado de reclinación se efectúa por medio de ruedas dentadas donde encaja una pieza para inmovilizar las ruedas o la posición de reclinación. Es pero que encuentres el término más adecuado. Suerte.
