Paramed Systems announced today the release of their Mobility Offers Versatility (MOV) chair, a fully motorized stair-chair capable of carrying fire, emergency medical, and rehabilitating patients safely and easily both up and down flights of stairs with the touch of a button.
Paramed developed the dual-track MOV in response to industry demand for a 500 pound capacity stair-chair capable of safe stairway ascents and descents. The MOV has been designed to significantly reduce the inherent risk of back and lower abdominal injury for the care giver when transporting a non-ambulatory patient up or down stairs.
“The innovative design of the MOV, and its unique ability to safely and effortlessly ascend and descend stairs, is unmatched by anything in the market,” said Nate Walkingshaw, Paramed President and CEO. “In addition to our international Paraslyde Evacuation Sled and Descent Control System tracked device for medical cots, the MOV is a significant addition to the product line.”
Paramed Systems is a manufacturer and distributor of highly engineered patient transport devices for non-ambulatory patients. Established in 2004, Paramed distributes products worldwide to the Fire, Emergency Medical, Hospital and Home Healthcare Industries.
