Ambulance safety is still evolving.
In the late 1960s, a series of studies and reports unlayered a critical issue in America. Accidental injuries were the leading cause of death in the first half of a life span. In fact, vehicle accidents killed more Americans in 1965 alone than the Korean War. When it came to prehospital emergency care, that same 1965 report exposed that “if seriously wounded… chances of survival would be better in the zone of combat than on the average city street.” This report made several recommendations for improvement, which prompted the standardization of emergency training for “rescue squad personnel, policemen, firemen and ambulance attendants.” It led to the first nationally recognized curriculum for EMS, which is considered the birth of modern EMS.
EVS Ltd has been at the forefront of ambulance seat safety 25 years.
Less than fifty years in, improving care is still central in EMS. More importantly, we are now focused on care for the crew, as well as the patient. The need for national guidelines and standardized testing regarding ambulance safety is growing and improving. Fortunately for EVS, safety is first and foremost, as it has always been. It drives product innovation, design, material selection and build processes, and we are proud to offer the best and safest ambulance seat products on the market today.
Work smarter and safer in an EVS Attendant Seat.
EVS Ltd offers a wide variety of attendant seats as OEM equipment or aftermarket retrofit. While most commonly used in Type I, Type II, or Type III emergency vehicles, our seats can also be installed in mobile command centers, blood drive units, telecommunication units, passenger transport vehicles, and prisoner transport vehicles. They are extremely versatile, boasting the most options in our product lineup. They can be fitted with various belting types, armrests, recliners, and base options such as swivel bases, stationary bases, and our exclusive mobility tracking systems.
The ABS backs offer improved durability and our seamless construction works as a barrier against blood-borne pathogens saturating the seat’s internal componentry. High quality molded automotive foam offers extreme comfort, an important consideration for departments with high call volume. Most importantly, the ability for various belting types allows departments to choose what works best for their working style while still enforcing a seated and belted policy for patient care.
