My department had to deal with a situation very similar. The faculty were able to make arrangements f or the lab to be taught on the first floor instead of making a large purcha se in a rush.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] evacuation chair
Please forgive me if you see this on more th an one list.
We need to accommodate a w heelchair-bound student in a 3rd-floor lab this Fall, so we̵ 7;re looking at the purchase of an evacuation chair. From what I’ve s een so far, the idea is to transfer the mobility-restricted worker/student to the evacuation chair; another worker/student/staff member then ‘wa lks’ the chair down the stairs. Features & prices vary.
Does anyone have experience to share about these devices?
