the WauK board

17482 West Westwind Dr
Gurnee IL 60031

Extricate patients from tight or restricted spaces by rolling, not carrying!

The WauK® board is a dolly specifically designed for transporting people. It allows first responders to roll their patients to safety instead of carrying them.

It is a smart tool to use in stairways, tight elevators, mobile homes, aircraft, small rooms, water rescues, active shooter situations, mass evacuations, bariatric patient transport, removal of deceased, and anywhere you want to minimize back injuries while maximizing mobility. Roll, don't carry!

The WauK® board’s one-of-a-kind, patented design adds the functionality of a dolly to a conventional backboard, allowing a first responder to extricate an immobilized patient from tight, restricted spaces. It’s the ideal companion to a stair chair because the WauK® board allows rescuing patients that must remain supine (lying face up), without carrying them.

The unique dolly feature allows first responders to:

  • Roll a patient, rather than carry a patient
  • Remove patients from the most constricted locations
  • Prevent career limiting back injuries
  • Prevent movement of the patient during extrication
  • Readily stored in the backboard compartment of an ambulance

Two 3" diameter wheels at the foot end provide smooth rollability. A rugged built-in foot rest perpendicular to the board when opened, or flush with the board when folded shut.
