Patient Carry Chair »

ID3: Develop the Opportunity

Transporting the patient from the incident site to the Ambulance has been identified as a major cause of musculoskeletal injury (MSI) in ambulance paramedics. Exisitng carry chairs require significant manual handling capabilities to facilitate transfer of the patient. In response to this validated unmet need, the NIC launched a competition to develop a new Patient Carry Chair solution.
