Storm Shelter Beds - The Perfect Solution for those with Limited Mobility
Those with limited mobility face critical danger when it comes time to seek protection from tornadoes and other severe weather. People who use wheelchairs, power scooters or walkers can not access an underground shelter, or for that matter make it outside to any type of shelter quickly or without help. This includes those with serious health issues or simple aging. These people are limited in where to seek protection from dangerous storms. This is why the new innovative Life Lift Shelter Bed, as seen on ABC’s Shark Tank, is the perfect solution for those with limited mobility. The FEMA-tested and approved shelter is immediately accessible right in the home for the person with mobility issues to roll right into. There are no stairs, steps, or ladders to try to overcome. It is right in the bedroom, under a bed—ready to protect from EF5 tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and even home invasions. The Full Stage Protection Bed, with its power lift, can even act as a hi-lo application for transferring from bed to wheelchair when it is not acting as a simple bed or life-saving shelter.
A Funny Story by a Life Lift Systems Employee
My mother was at home caring for my dad, who was weak from terminal cancer, and my grandmother, who was suffering from severe dementia. When the Oklahoma tornado sirens blared, my mom knew she had to get her two vulnerable loved ones to the safest place in the house—the bathroom. She knew my grandmother was deathly afraid of storms, so she came up with a plan which involved not telling her mom they were in the path of a tornado. She helped my dad sit in the bathtub on a chair and closed the shower curtain so my grandmother wouldn’t see him. Then she proceeded to help my grandmother on the toilet like it was a normal potty time. All of a sudden my dad sneezed! My grandmother started screaming that there was a man in the shower! Lucky for all of them, the tornado didn’t come their way.
Severe Weather is Serious
Although there are certainly other funny severe weather stories, tornadoes, straight winds and hurricanes are not funny. They are often deadly. Getting those with mobility challenges to a safe place can be dangerous. Many times, those caught in the deadliest storms are the elderly, children and babies and those with mobility issues who cannot access safety quickly enough. That’s why we are so honored to be able to offer this convenient and accessible ADA approved shelter which will protect from the fiercest weather threats. It will provide protection from 250 MPH winds from EF5 tornados, hurricanes or straight winds which can wipe structures to the slab unless they are bolted into the concrete. The Life Lift Shelter Beds can also provide protection from earthquakes as entire cars have been dropped onto our shelters and withstood crush values up to 60,000 lbs.
Those with and without mobility challenges can rest assured of the multi-purpose protection our Life Lift Shelter Beds offer.
