Strengths:Seating device style
Light weight
Weaknesses:Before attempting to train on the device, practice without a person. Have the rescuer get accustom with the device and how it feels as it starts to descend the stairs. Then use mannequins or sandbags etc. in weight increments so that the rescuer feels in control.
Comments:After viewing the demonstration dvd during an emergency preparedness meeting, members decided to try out the life slider in our office buiding stairwell. The slider took up the depth of the landing. I was acting as the rescuer. A colleague who tried the device at another facility location (one with carpeted stairs) was in the slider. I was concerned that there wasn't enough space between the slder and myself on the landing. The lanyard was around my waist correctly. I was holding the remaining lanyard as instructed on the video with a sufficient amount of slack as demonstrated. As the slider began descent, within seconds the force pulled me forward and I was propelled head first. It was a short staircase with a landing with a widow with bars. My colleague was heading directly towards the window. i instinctly forced myself out of a head first fall. My colleague thought I let go of my hold but I never did. I have the bruises on my hand. Luckily neither one of us were seriously injured. My colleague has a soar tailbone. I have some very serious bruises on my arm, leg and hand from my attempt to break my fall. When viewing the dvd all of us commented on how quickly the resucers were moving down the stairs. The life slider appealed to us because of the tobaggan style as we provide services to individuals with physcial disabilities ranging from mild to severe. Many of these indivduals live in high rise buildings and in an emergency would need to be rescued. It is hard to rate the product at this time. I put in ratings of 2 so that I could forward my comments.
