Stiltz is preparing to educate delegates about the health and safety benefits of homelifts at The Occupational Therapy Show.
New for 2019, Stiltz will focus on the importance of social inclusion and accessibility within the home with a view to enhancing occupational performance.
Its stand will showcase the Duo+ two-person lift and the Trio+ which accommodates three people, powerchairs or wheelchairs.
Many elderly and disabled clients rely on manual assistance from relatives and carers to access upstairs and this dependency can result in a loss of self-esteem and detrimentally reduce physical and mental health.
From a practical point of view, bathrooms and bedrooms may not be accessible resulting in compromised hygiene and sleeping behaviour.
Stiltz says, with an effective homelift, resultant strain on NHS services and social care can be reduced alongside the potential for costly home conversions or relocation.
