AAT GB introduces accessible new solution to assist wheelchair users with navigating stairs
Stairclimber specialist, AAT GB, has introduced a new addition to its comprehensive range – the Roby – to assist wheelchair users in getting up and down stairs and to optimise the prescriptive options available to occupational therapists.
According to AAT GB, the tracked climber compliments its best-selling S-Max wheeled kinematic stairclimber.
The Roby clips onto the wheelchair, eliminating any need for transfer. At a rate set and managed by the operator, the unit fluidly climbs or descends using electronically controlled gearing on the motor.
The climber offers optimal adjustment to accommodate most common wheelchairs whilst allowing room for an operator to comfortably move and steer from behind, with minimal effort.
When not required, it disassembles into two manageable parts for easy storage and transportation.
Peter Wingrave, AAT Director commented: “The Roby brings a new dimension to prescription of inter-level transfer for a disabled client.
“Stairclimbers are increasingly being specified as the preferred solutions for inter-level transfer. They mean there is no need to even consider structural constraints/ adaptation within the home.
“They are swift and cost-effective, enabling timely provision, often from equipment stores, especially when facilitating hospital discharge and overcome structural constraints.
“They enable the client and all other members of the household to continue to use the home’s layout as normal.
“Adding the tracked Roby adds another dimension to the choice, empowering occupational therapists to specify a solution that meets the client and care-givers’ personal preferences and perceptions in terms of fluidity of movement, stability and operation of the technology.”
Earlier this year, AAT GB expanded its product range with the Universal Back accessory, a bespoke solution to enable customers with changing accessibility needs to safely transfer without requiring a change of equipment and all its associated disruption and cost.
