Therapists can quickly and cost-effectively make inroads into the backlog of people needing equipment to go, or remain, at home.
The solution reduces the strain on carers too.
The solution is AAT GB’s Universal Back for its Sella stairclimber.
The accessory is the result of AAT listening to, and working with adaptations teams. That, coupled with AAT’s internal design & engineering expertise, delivers an outcome which supports people who need a secure postural structure to get up and done steps and stairs at home.
The Universal Back means that any of the 3000+ AAT stairclimbers already held within local authority equipment stores can be instantly, and cost-effectively, adapted to fit any user- young or old, large or small. It is fully adjustable by width and height, and seat depth, to provide lateral and even asymmetrical trunk support.
“Everyone so far who has tried the Universal Back has bought it,” says AAT GB Sales Director Peter Wingrave. “It ticks the boxes in terms of a quick, best value solution, and facilitates easy re-issue of equipment. It helps anyone who would benefit from a comprehensive structural seating system on a stairclimber to access all parts of their home without the lengthy process of a major adaptation.”
The Sella stairclimber and universal back combo means anyone who needs a wheelchair and a carer can be quickly enabled to be safely and easily moved up and down steps and stairs.
The user is sat securely and comfortably whilst their carer operates the stairclimber at their own pace, without strain or effort. It means the client, their carer(s), family, can live better at home, and venture out, without the time, cost, disruption and location limitation inherent with alternative means of inter-storey transfer.
Sella is perhaps the most multi-functional stairclimber on the market, with the capacity to accommodate the most challenging of stairways- even narrow, steep and spiral staircases. When not in use, it folds neatly and compactly away. Its compactness, strength, durability and foldability means it can be easily used at home or away, indoors or out.
The success of the Sella as a concept means there are five times more AAT stairclimbers already in equipment stores than any other stairclimber. The Sella stairclimber features a range of accessories that enable tailoring of the stairclimber to individual needs, shapes and sizes for long-term use. The Universal Back provides a “one size fits all” answer that expediates an equipment stores stock solution.
AAT GB is unique in being the only stairclimber company to have an off-the-shelf- universal solution. Also uniquely in its sector, the company has national coverage, so can deliver a solution within optimal timeframes.
Its nationwide team can work alongside OTs by whatever means is needed (actual, remote or virtual) to assess a client within 10 working days of initial contact and advise a solution. AAT GB provides full training for carers to ensure safe single-handed use of the equipment.
