The use of ambulance chairs helps to make the process a smooth and calm one for the patient in question, especially considering they are most likely to be distressed over the situation they are in anyway. Ambulance chairs allow the transference of patients between one location and another without causing any discomfort over the movement. Ambulance chairs are easy to store and easy to use, especially when done daily. If you require any further information about ambulance chairs, please contact our support team on 020 7720 2266.
The use of ambulance chairs is highly important, not just for the user but for the operators as well. Using ambulance chairs allows the patient to be transferred in a calm manner, but also reduces the risk of injury for the operator. Lifting a chair into the back of an ambulance, for instance, runs the risk of causing lower back injuries even if the chair is handled correctly. The variations of patient loads means there is only so much an operator can prepare for. With the use of the wheels found on ambulance chairs, this risk is reduced significantly. Not to mention it is a much smoother process for the user.
Stairwells can be particularly hard when transferring a patient, with 80% of both male and female operators complaining of strains and injuries when having to take the weight of the patient. Ambulance chairs again provide a solution to this problem as they support the weight of the user and are suited for navigating stairs, whether it is up or down.
Ambulance chairs are an ideal way of reducing the risk of injuries and strains for ambulance personnel, allowing them to complete their job more effectively. The reduction of stress from the operators has a positive effect on the patient and also provides them with a much smoother transition compared to a lifting seat. Ambulance chairs are an ideal solution to a number of difficult scenarios and aids everyone involved.
