Teesside University Choose Phoenix for Simulated Ambulance

Wanting to create a realistic ambulance environment for its trainee paramedics, Teesside University turned to Phoenix Seating.

As a passenger seating manufacturer we are used to seeing our seating products installed in minibuses, police units, patient transfer vehicles, on board school transport and taxis to name just a few applications so it’s always a welcomed change when an opportunity to fit Phoenix Seats in more obscure scenarios are presented. 

Simulated Ambulance TeessideTeesside University recently approached Phoenix to help with the realism of the recently commissioned simulated ambulance being installing for its paramedic course. As Phoenix seats are already used in the ambulance market, Phoenix were able to easily assist Teesside University.

Providing 2 x Blenheim High Back Tip Up seats finished in a green antimicrobial vinyl trim to keep with the appearance & authenticity of a real world ambulance, Phoenix are delighted that trainee paramedics will be learning practical skills using its products.

Peter Kirkham, Senior Technical Manager at Teesside Uni commented; “following the commissioning of the simulated ambulance, it was quickly realised how imperative the realism of the vehicle was in order to provide the best student experience; from dimensions and appearance through to the space and accessories included. ‘

After communications with Phoenix and learning seating ranges are used in ambulance applications, Peter added; ‘Including genuine ambulance fitting and fixtures, the Phoenix seats add to the realism which is essential for high quality simulated learning in Higher Education. Very easy to install, the seats are perfect for the learning environment and the quality and longevity of the products ensures we can continue to offer real world learning in controlled environments.’

With a range of Phoenix seats installed in many ambulance applications across the UK, it is fantastic the seats are also being utilised in higher education and gearing the upcoming generation of paramedics and ambulance staff ready for real world application.
