Subject: [DCHAS-L] evacuation chair
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 an evacuation chair. From what I’ve seen so far, the idea is to transfer the mobility-restricted worker/student to the evacuation chair; another worker/student/staff member then ‘walks’ the chair down the stairs. Features & prices vary.
Does anyone have experience to share about these devices?
