Transporting patients down stairwells calls for a medical transport chair that assists the caregiver and keeps the patient safe. FERNO manufactures sturdy, reliable stair chairs to meet every agency’s needs.
Types of Medical Transport Chairs
FERNO offers three categories of stair chairs:
Our lightweight stair chairs are designed for two handlers, and their small size makes them maneuverable in tight spaces. Because the operators carry the patient’s weight, these chairs are ideal for transferring smaller patients or for moving patients down a minimal number of stairs. Weight limit is approximately 350 lbs.
Our stair chairs with belted tracks allow operators to “glide” the patient down the stairs. This function takes a great deal of strain off EMS personnel, which keeps patients and operators safer. Weight limit is approximately 500 lbs.
For the most power and durability for your dollar, your team needs the EZ-Glide Stair Chair with POWERTraxx. Whether the patient is being transported up or down stairs, the POWERTraxx motor does all the heavy lifting so operators experience less fatigue and fewer injuries.
