A modern version of the Patient Transport Chairs used by Hospitals and Ambulance services with a lift capacity of up to 110kg. Although primarily used to transport persons across level surfaces, they can also be used to carry patients up or down stairs. Physical effort is required to perform this and we recommend the assistance of 2- 4 people, dependant on the person who is being evacuated.
Because of the lifting and Manual Handling involved, it is recommended that full Risk Assessment and PEEP should be carried out.
Transport Chairs are used by Emergency Services around the world and by organisations who wish to comply with current legislation.

We currently manufacture 2 models of Transit Chair:
