A remarkable five member clothing design team from UW Stout created an evacuation harness for the safety of wheelchair bound people. The harness functions like a backpack. It allows an able-bodied person to carry a disabled person away from danger. The safety design of the harness became nationally recognized with an award from the international 2012 Safety Products Student Design Challenge.
