The Newest Innovation in Patient Extrication.
A dolly designed specifically for transporting people while preventing first responder back injuries: extricate patients from tight or restricted spaces by rolling, not carrying.

A cost-effective tool for hospitals and nursing homes: meet JCAHO requirements for "All Hazards" evacuation planning

  • The most cost effective approach: 1 WauK® board can evacuate 5 patients
  • Roll patients on wheels; don't drag them through hallways, down stairs
  • Minimize back strain for the extricator
  • Maximize patient comfort and safety
  • Easily extricate through tight spaces, narrow doorways, small stair landings
  • Train staff easily:
    • NO complicated stairway braking systems
    • NO unrolling before use
    • NO re-rolling for storage after use

Five Patient Evacuation Estimate

Five evacuations by one team is an estimate based on simulated evacuations conducted by a two person team using Rescue Randy (a 175 lb. dummy) as the evacuee. We estimate that in two to three hours a team could evacuate 5 people from the fifth floor of a building. Our simulation was done in daylight. Emergency lighting, the floor the patient is on, and other factors may affect the actual number of evacuations a team can perform. Five patients per WauK® board is a conservative estimate of it's reusability during evacuation to allow for economic comparisons.
