AAT BG Universal Back
Stairclimber specialist AAT GB has designed 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.

The Universal Back is mechanically mounted onto the AAT Smax or Sella stairclimbers, and forms an integral part of the unit, rather than being strapped to it, according to the manufacturer.

The adjustability of the Universal Back means that one accessory ensures any passenger can be safely transferred up and down stairs, be they the smallest child through to a bariatric adult.

According to AAT GB, the adjustability goes beyond accommodating size. It can be precisely adjusted for lateral and vertical, forward and backward support, and even accommodate thoracic asymmetry. Harnessing provides further support if necessary.
