New walking aid from Polymorit looks to revolutionise care for people with mobility needs at airports
Polymorit, a UK specialist in independent living aids, has recently introduced the Wheellator to its range of products which is aimed at increasing the freedom and mobility of users.
Designed in Finland, Polymorit says the Wheellator has been engineered to the highest standards.
Combining stability and manoeuvrability, the Wheellator provides independence, extended travel and the opportunity for users to regain the confidence to explore with increased endurance. It also gives people with reduced mobility a sense of dignity.
With trials currently underway at Stansted and Manchester Airports, the Wheellator promises to revolutionise the care of people with reduced mobility at airports and other major public access venues.
According to Polymorit, its latest product is another step in the right direction towards providing equality of access for people of all abilities.
Andy Wright, Managing Director of Accessible Travel Consultancy Services and who specialises in enhancing the passenger with reduced mobility (PRM) experience, said: “The Wheellator is a new PRM innovation which I was recently introduced to. It caught my eye as a piece of equipment that could be utilised by the independent PRM, who doesn’t like to use a wheelchair or buggy, but at the same time would possibly struggle with the distance between check-in and departure gate.
“Equally I felt that it may be suitable for a PRM who had been assisted to airside reception, but then wanted the independence to go for a coffee or to the toilet unaided.”
Since 1983, Polymorit has provided innovative solutions to enhance the lives of those who require extra care or assistance due to restricted mobility or health conditions.
It focuses on the manufacture and distribution of exclusive and unique products to the NHS, local authorities and public access venues in the UK and abroad.
