New ambulance chassis includes innovative safety improvements

The Type 1 ambulance features innovative enhancements, like mobility seating, designed with provider safety and functionality in mind

During a recent and detailed tour of the new Demers Type 1 MXP 170 ambulance, given by Greg Tucci, regional sales manager for Demers Ambulances, I was impressed by some of the remarkable design features focused on safety and power management.

My single favorite feature is the new Mobility Track Seating, which swivels and slides on an innovative Demers-built track mechanism. It allows you to move in almost any direction during patient care and works so well about the only time you should need to undo your seatbelt is to get something out of the cabinets.

If you need to slide towards the patient’s head it’s as easy as pulling a lever. Ditto if you need to move towards the feet. Once care has been rendered, you can swivel to a forward facing position for optimal safety. Continue
