Powered stairclimbers make light work of transporting a person in a wheelchair up and down stairs. Furthermore, they can be safely operated by just one person, removing the need for exhaustive physical effort that’s usually required, when transporting a wheelchair user up or down stairs depending upon the situation or need.
Evacusafe UK, a leading manufacturer of evacuation chairs and rescue mattresses, has added to their range of product offerings with the introduction of 3 powered stairclimbers to increase the access and egress options available to mobility impaired persons. All kinds of situtions and locations could benefit from these products, both indoors and outdoors. The list is endless.
The models include PT S for persons who can transfer to and from the unit; the PT Fold, designed primary for medical use, its compact size makes it ideal for tight or spiral staircases; and the PT R, a tracked unit capable of carrying a person in their wheelchair.
Tony Gill, Director of Evacusafe says “These new models of powered stairclimbers complement our existing range of track evacuation chairs and now enable us to provide our customers with alternative solutions where previously a manual chair wasn’t suitable. As well as their use in any upwards emergency evacuations, they can offer access and egress solutions to both commercial and domestic users meaning equality and inclusion for everyone”.
