Stryker Evacuation Chair - An All-In-One Evacuation Solution for the Disabled

Just turn on the news and the number of, ‘people in crisis’ stories unravel at an unprecedented rate. You might get anxiety from viewing such constant dangers that surround you. Now imagine if you were disabled. That anxiety could significantly increase.

Stryker Evacuation Chair

Thankfully, many safety protocols are in place to assist those that cannot assist themselves and evacuation chairs are an integral part of such preparation. This is especially true for people with disabilities working in buildings or hard to reach sites.

According to the United States Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy

People with disabilities may need additional assistance evacuating if stairways are a part of their evacuation route. A multi-faceted approach, including evacuation devices, wheelchairs, transfer devices and staff support, may be required.

It May Be Needed More Than You Think

In a crisis situation, determining who can or cannot swiftly exit a structure should not be determined at such a time. It is not always the one who is noticeably disabled but many others that could also have a physical challenge that is not so conspicuous. Those suffering from asthma, heart issues, potential for seizures or have been rendered immobile during the unexpected crisis may need to be carried to safety.

Having the proper emergency tool, such a Stryker Evacuation Chair, on site can make all the difference when it comes to removing anyone safely and efficiently in a high stakes situation. This evacuation chair is equipped with the strength and design needed to get the job done.
