A four-year-old girl with Cerebral Palsy is now able to enjoy being taken regularly upstairs to bed by her mother thanks to an AAT GB innovation.
Previously, Cecilia Cann from Lincoln was having to be taken downstairs before her father left for work or was sleeping downstairs when he was working overnight.
Now, thanks to the S-Max stairclimber, Cecilia’s mum, Lauren, can take her up and down stairs easily.
“Life has been difficult, I don’t have the capability to carry Cecilia on my own, it’s not safe for either of us,” Lauren said.
“Cecilia desperately wanted me to take her up to bed, and would cry because I couldn’t.
“Now I can do it, she’s so happy that mummy is taking her to bed. She loves it and asks ‘more’ as soon as we get to the top of the stairs!
“The stairclimber has transformed our daily life, particularly with being confined to the house with COVID.”
The AAT S-Max stairclimber is in essence a slimline wheelchair with battery powerpack,that smoothly and safely propels the passenger up and down stairs using advanced kinematics, with minimal effort from the operator.
A single charge of the batteries executes up to 300 steps up even narrow or turning flights, and over all common floor surfaces. When not in use, the S-Max can be folded compactly away.
