What makes the Pakkie better than other rescue devices?

The Pakkie is an amazing revolutionary device that not only makes transferring during emergencies and everyday life safe, but it is also a lightweight, space saving device.  Unlike the bulky evacuation chairs when folded, the Pakkie is compact and only weighs 9 ounces, but will support over 300 lbs.  This makes it extremely easy to store.  Because the Pakkie only weighs 9 ounces it will reduce the amount of weight lifted and allow for a safer transfer.

Who should purchase the Pakkie?

Beside persons disabled the following industries/businesses will find the Pakkie extremely useful.

Companies in High Rise Buildings

Anybody disabled in a high rise building has no safe way to evacuate during an emergency.  Also what happens if a person who was totally healthy when they went to work, and then they were injured in an emergency later that day, how would they get out of the building?  Here is where the Pakkie comes to the rescue.

Hospitals

Hospital staff are constantly moving patients from bed to a wheelchair, or stretcher which places stress not only on the patient, but can also place the hospital staff at risk for injury.  The Pakkie is the perfect solution to reducing back injuries to staff.

Doctor's Office

The Pakkie is great for assisting patients with disabilities on to exam tables.

Dentist

The Pakkie is great for assisting patients with disabilities into the dentist chair.

Nursing Homes

Often times patients need to be moved from bed to wheelchair which causes bruising.  The Pakkie will eliminate bruising caused by staff grabbing arms and legs to move.

Airlines

Ok, so you work for an airline company, how many times have you come across persons disabled that need to board an airplane?  Do you as the airline staff have any clue to what is the safest way to life a person?  This is a trick question, because there is no safe way, unless you have the Pakkie.  The Pakkie can be used as an universal transfer device, and can prevent a disabled passenger from becoming injured, and taking legal action against the airline.  Spending a little money on the Pakkie, can save you millions in the future.  The Pakkie is the ultimate investment.

Cruiselines

Cruiselines generally have a good reputation within the population of disabilities, but some cruises do not dock at port, but they dock at sea and take a tender to the dock.  Also what happens if there is an emergency on the ship?  How can a person disabled be expected to get into a life boat?  Do not worry, the Pakkie can be used to solve these problems.

Hotels

What happens to visitors with disabilities when the fire alarm is pulled, or if there is a real fire?  They cannot use the elevators so how will they go down the stairs?  The Pakkie of course.  Hotels could easily store this device in handicap rooms and notify disabled visitors of its presence.  Hotels at the beach have another use for the Pakkie.  The Pakkie makes it possible for several friends to carry their friend with a disability to the beach.  This device is a lot easier to store than a beach wheelchair, and costs far less.  Plus we can add your hotel name and logo to the back of the Pakkie, and you could also be advertising.  These slings will practically pay for themselves.

Fire Departments & EMS

What happens when you get in a situation where you cannot get a stretcher up a tight and winding flight of stairs?  The Pakkie will fix that problem.  Also what happens if you need to respond to a natural disaster, or terrorist attack?  An ambulance can only hold one maybe two stretchers, but with the Pakkie's small lightweight design you can easily store them on the ambulance.

Schools

All schools are required to have emergency evacuation procedures for their students with disabilities.  It can become a school administrators nightmare when a student with a disability is on the second floor when there is a fire.  The elevators are not functional so how do you get the student to safety?  Voila, here comes the Pakkie to the rescue.  This device is great for schools because it can easily be kept in a class room, or a students locker, and with its low cost it is a great investment.
