A stairclimber is a portable battery powered device that ascends, descends steps and stairs to safely transfer someone with reduced mobility between levels and beyond. It can have an integral seat or be fixed to a wheelchair.
A stairclimber is free-standing and completely portable. Its use is not confined to the stairway. It is not fixed to the building structure in any way. A stairlift is secured to the wall or stairs and can only be used within the scope of its transfer rail.
With appropriate training of the operator/care giver, it is completely safe. AAT is the UK’s #1 suppler, with an impeccable safety record spanning 20+ years.
A stairclimber can be adjusted to suit both the operator and passenger for optimal comfort and safety in use. The standard version can accommodate small children through to adults up to 135kg. Versions are available for larger passengers. Almost any suitably trained person can operate a stairclimber.

A vacuum posture cushion is in essence a beanbag from which the air is removed once the desired shape is achieved to retain that outline. Versions range from simple rolls to mattress-sized. Its ability to retain its shape and perfectly mirror/correct the user’s anatomy means there is no need for frequent re-plumping of cushions, moving the person to avoid pressure sores. Its design and construction makes it suitable for numerous scenarios, including supported bathing, sleeping, sitting, in wheelchairs, canoes, aircraft… the list is endless. See https://www.aatgb.com/posture-cushions/ to appreciate the diversity of uses.
A fixed mould seat is permanently fixed in the shape ordered. A vacuum posture cushion is infinitely remouldable, whenever needed, at home, by the trained carer to deliver postural comfort and correction with mm precision giving the flexibility to quickly address variations in requirements.
With their advanced neoprene cover, vacuum posture cushions can be used anywhere, at home and beyond, even in the bath, swimming pool, sea- wherever you would need cushion support. They can be wiped clean and air dry quickly.
