Evac+Chair supports the mobility provisions for the elderly

In view of Singapore aging population, Evac+Chair supports the mobility provisions for the elderly living in older HDB flats that have no lift landing at every floor. Evac Chair provides an alternative solution that enable vertical access and egress for older persons with mobility limitation.

Evac+Chair is intended to aid people with disabilities for smooth stairway descent leaving a building and its vicinity, both at emergency situations and at peace time. Evac Chair is designed for single user operation ensures no heavy lifting or manual handling is required during emergency evacuation procedures. In peace time, Evac Chair provides an alternative solution that enable vertical access and egress for older persons with mobility limitation living in older flats that have no lift landing at every floor.

Caregiver use the Evac Chair as a means of stairway descent for transporting the people with reduced mobility from flat to the lift landing floor or from the lift landing floor to the flat. Without Evac+Chair, it would take a minimum of 2 caregivers to carry a wheelchair with user down the stairs. Trying to move a wheelchair user down the stairs manually is a tedious and risky process.
