The elevatOR care / Barrier-free elevator panel

The elevatOR care

There're certain groups of people facing difficulty when taking the elevators; such as, wheelchair users, crutch users, staff that carries hospital beds or medical equipments alone. In many situations, it's probably inconvenient for disabled people to operate buttons for high floors section, and also the emergency button is too high to reach when needed. Most importantly, it takes more time for disables or staffs with medical equipments passing through. So passengers have to keep pushing "open button" until leaving the elevator. The elevatOR care is creating friendly experience for taking barrier-free elevator in medical environment.
