Anyone involved in the day-to-day care of a child with physical, mental disability knows life becomes more difficult as they grow and can no longer be safely carried up and down stairs. It puts the child and the care team at risk.
Occupational therapists can make it safe quickly and efficiently with AAT’s top-selling S-Max stairclimber.
The battery-powered kinematic machine safely and smoothly transfers the child between levels in the home, and onward to wherever they need to be- bedroom, bathroom, lounge….
It delivers fall prevention and safe transfer without structural alteration or disruption to daily life for the household.
The S-Max can be attached to a wheelchair, avoiding any need to physically manoeuvre between equipment. Alternatively, AAT’s Class 1 medical device certified S-Max Sella variant features an integral seat.
The high balance point and PowerStep feature means the smallest carer can easily operate and control the S-Max, even pausing, stopping en-route if needed. When not in use, it folds compactly away.
AAT’s range of accessories enable the S-Max to accommodate the child’s safety and postural support as he or she grows or their needs change: options address seating and harnessing requirements from head to toe.
The one piece of equipment offers a universal solution, that can be used with children of all ages.
And it can be quickly re-issued to other clients when no longer needed by the original recipient.
The S-Max provides a timely, cost-effective preventative solution. The equipment manages the risk of possible falls or injuries. It helps the family to live life without impacting or limiting living space.
And, when not in use, it folds compactly away, making the most of often limited living space.
As it is not fixed, it can even help get the child down steps into the garden.
This also means it can fit into a car boot, enabling the child to participate in life beyond the home.
“To our knowledge, there is no better, faster single option to be able to prescribe a safe way overcome the problem of safely transferring up and down stairs for a child with a disability,”Peter Wingrave, AAT Director
