Stairclimber specialist, AAT GB, has announced a new innovation designed to provide a universal solution to safe transfer.
The Universal Back is mechanically mounted onto the AAT Smax or Sella stairclimbers, and forms an integral part of the unit, rather than being strapped to it.
The adjustability of the Universal Back means that one accessory ensures any passenger can be safely transferred up and down stairs, be they the smallest child through to a bariatric adult.
The adjustability goes beyond accommodating size. It can be precisely adjusted for lateral and vertical, forward and backward support, and even accommodate thoracic asymmetry. Harnessing provides further support if necessary.
The flexibility of the Universal Back means that when added to an AAT stairclimber, the stairclimber can be re-issued to any user, young or old, large or small, without the need to specify alternative and additional accessories and the delivery of a safe, appropriate transfer solution is expedited.
AAT is the only national provider of stairclimbers and support equipment. Its nationwide team of specialists can work alongside the Occupational Therapist to assess – free of charge, and with appropriate health & safety measures – the suitability of a stairclimber for the property, the client, and their carer(s).
AAT can manage the whole process, from specification of any additional accessories if needed, supply of the equipment, and training of the carer who will operate the climber, ensuring a correct and safe solution.
