Description of Emergency Vertical Air Assisted Device (Hover jack)
The Emergency Vertical Air Assisted Device is used to assist patients/visitors that cannot get up after a fall, cannot ambulate or sit in a chair, and must lay flat, while being transferred in the hall ways and stair wells. The Evacuation Hover Jack, when inflated, will lift the person to waist height, keeping them flat, and allow them to be transferred laterally to a stretcher/bed or evacuated down a stair well without manual lifting or repositioning. This reduces the risk of staff members being injured from lifting and repositioning a person as well as preventing further injuries to the patient by keeping them at a supine position during transfer. It provides a way to evacuate patients safely and efficiently, especially for the patients who cannot be evacuated on a bed mattress.
The Emergency Vertical Air Assisted Device must be compatible/interchangeable with our current Hover Tech products (Hover Jack, HoverMatt, air supplies, and carts).

Salient characteristics for Emergency Vertical Air-Assisted Device (Hover Jack):
