Evacuation Chairs For Patients

Patient handling equipment is a vital part of any institution that is entrusted with a duty of care to its residents. Whether it is a hospital, residential home or other care facility, the correct equipment must be on hand for the patients who are depending on it. They need to be transported around the complex or in the event of an emergency, even evacuated from it. This puts various pressures on the equipment used in the building, with a great requirement for them to be secure, adaptable and easily moved across many different types of terrain including stairs and uneven ground. The most numerous type of equipment will most likely be chairs. In a hospital most of the people will only require a transport chairs to be moved, so it is important that you invest wisely.

One of the most recognisable transport and evacuation chairs is the Attendant Wheelchair. It is manufactured to exacting standards to be something that both you and the patient can feel entirely comfortable with. It can easily be loaded into the back of vehicles including cars and ambulances to transport. The handles on the back make it particularly easy for the operator to guide around while the material is made from a flame retardant substance for extra safety in an emergency. One of the issues with a piece of equipment like this is that it cannot easily scale stairs, however. Fortunately there are chairs especially built for the task. The TSC 10T Stair Chair has been specifically designed to allow access to stairs – something which is necessary when a fire means that lifts are inaccessible. This folding chair is easy to store and deploy and completely removes the need to carry equipment and patients downstairs. In an emergency it is easy to see how carrying could jeopardise everyone involved in the transportation of that patient. The friction braked tracks of this chair allow you to scale stairs easily and safely in a matter of minutes. It can even scale tight staircases due to its braked front swivel casters. The entire chair is built to last from high grade stainless steel.

Self-propelling wheelchairs are one of the most important medical supplies available. Giving a patient their own ability to get around can reduce the pressure on staff in general. Of course, these chairs can also be used to guide patients around the facility if they need it. The chair is made to be as durable as possible from high quality chrome-plated steel. The pneumatic wheels are a large 24 inches and sit below comfortable arm rests. This is a very comfortable chair that will be great for many different occupants weighing up to 140 kilograms.

Some chairs are designed for evacuation from very confined spaces like on aeroplanes. One such example is the folding Evacuation Chair which has two sets of handles so it can be operated either way up or even carried by two people. It is also great on boats and high rise buildings.
