One of the fundamental reasons why the Evac+Chair has been so successful, worldwide, is its superior product quality. Evac+Chair is classified as a class I medical device in both the US, where it is approved by the FDA, and Europe, where it conforms to the provisions of the Medical Devices Regulations EU 2017/745, which means it also carries the CE mark.
The Evac+Chair has also been type-tested through TUV NORD International Gmbh, an independent test-house facility based in Germany, and is manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 and 13485 Quality Management standards.
For total peace of mind, all Evac+Chair Service Engineers have CHAS Accreditation, and we are also proud members of both ConstructionLine and SafeContractor.
The Evac+Chair was also identified as the ‘fastest device’ for evacuating patients from hospitals in an independent clinical study completed by Greenwich University in 2013 – An analysis and numerical simulation of the performance of trained hospital staff using movement assist devices to evacuate people with reduced mobility.
