The WauK® board is a dolly specifically designed for transporting people. New, larger, outboard-mounted wheels allow the next-generation All-Terrain WauK® board ("ATW") to be used in more outdoor applications with better stability, easier handling, and improved clearance to evacuate your supine* patients over gravel, through tall grass, and more.

The WauK® board is a smart tool to use in stairways, tight elevators, mobile homes, aircraft, small rooms, water rescues, active shooter situations, mass evacuations, bariatric patient transport, removal of deceased, and anywhere you want to minimize back injuries while maximizing mobility. Roll, don't carry!

The WauK® board’s one-of-a-kind, patented design adds the functionality of a dolly to a conventional backboard, allowing a first responder to extricate an immobilized patient from tight, restricted spaces. It's the ideal companion to a stair chair because the WauK® board allows rescuing patients that must remain supine (lying face up), without carrying them.
