Home emergency chair
29 April 2013
Evacusafe has launched a new safety product, specifically designed for use in the home. The Home Emergency Chair is a transport chair designed to assist family members in the home, who may require assistance to exit the house in an emergency, such as a fire, due to mobility issues such as disability, illness or other medical conditions.
The three wheel design makes it particularly suitable for use on stairs, both upwards and downwards, as it glides with little effort, making it easy-to-use. For best practise Evacusafe recommends that two people assist with the evacuation to provide optimum comfort and safety to the evacuee.
Commenting on the new product, Evacusafe director Paul Mitchell says: "It's not just a chair for use in emergencies, it's also ideal for helping less able relatives move around the home, in particular up and down stairs."
