ATW: the All-Terrain WauK® board

See the Rescue Tool Departments Nationwide Are Buying

New, larger, outboard mounted wheels allow the next-generation All-Terrain WauK® board ("ATW") to be used in both outdoor and indoor applications. With better stability, easier handling, and improved clearance, the ATW allows one or two responders to easily evacuate immobile patients by pulling or pushing:

  • over gravel
  • through tall grass
  • on carpet
  • down stairs
  • in tight elevators
  • and more

The All-Terrain WauK® board is a dolly specifically designed for transporting people. 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 immobilized, without carrying them.
