Please forgive me if you see this on more than one list.

We need to accommodate a wheelchair-bound student in a 3rd-floor lab this Fall, so we’re looking at the purchase of a n evacuation chair. From what I’ve seen so far, the idea is to transf er the mobility-restricted worker/student to the evacuation chair; another worker/student/staff member then ‘walks’ the chair down the sta irs. Features & prices vary.

Does anyone have experience to share about these devices?
