Covid-19 Statement

These are exceptional times. With Coronavirus – Covid-19 - we all face an unprecedented global challenge. Stiltz Ltd. continue to review activities on a daily basis to comply with Government directives.

Stiltz is a proud member of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) through which we are co-ordinating industry efforts to keep our customers mobile. Our priority is to ensure all current and prospective customers are able to maintain safe and independent access with the help of their homelift, as reducing accidents within the home at this time will, in turn, assist in reducing stress on the NHS hospital care system. We will endeavour to provide the expected levels of service and support to those seeking a new homelift installation or those requiring lift service/maintenance, while being mindful to minimise risk.

We have therefore implemented additional processes to mitigate risk to you, our staff and the wider Stiltz community:

As a matter of course, we will check with all customers and prospective customers requesting them to confirm nobody is unwell with Covid-19 at the property we are due to visit. If Covid-19 is confirmed, we will follow Government advice
All customer visits will be subject to additional sanitation measures. Stiltz staff will wash or sanitise their hands prior to entering your property, and upon leaving. They will not offer to shake hands, and will maintain the prescribed 2 metre distance
Regular health and safety bulletins will be issued to all office and field-based staff
All field-based staff will be asked, on a daily basis, to confirm they are clear to work as per NHS and Government Guidance
All staff who fall ill with Covid-19 or who are self-isolating, will receive full pay during the period they are indisposed.

Stiltz will closely monitor the situation and follow government advice at all times. Our priority is to manage customer and staff safety, whilst continuing to provide our customers with the necessary homecare support to ensure their valued independence.

One of the many benefits of owning a domestic lift such as the Stiltz Lift is that it is fantastic for carrying items upstairs.

This includes boxes, deliveries and other heavy objects. A home lift is also useful for lifting awkward items such as vacuum cleaners, laundry or anything else you need an extra pairs of hands for.

As an optional extra, customers can choose to include a fold down seat in their domestic lift. This means that things can be placed on the chair so they do not need to bend down to lift the objects off once the home lift has taken them to the upstairs of their home.

With a stairlift, for example, this type of device can only be used for lifting the user up and down the stairs and any other small items that the person can carry on their lap with them such as a handbag. Therefore, as well as a domestic lift providing a simple way of getting between floors, it is also a great asset for moving objects up and down stairs.

The Stiltz Lift includes two remote controls as standard to lift the objects between floors.  This is especially useful for users who are have mobility issues, are unable to carry large heavy items up and down stairs, or have back problems.

Indeed with Back Care Awareness Week in full flow this week, this is very relevant as according to recent research painful back and neck ache affects as many as four out of five people in the UK. That is a rise of more than 10 per cent in one year.

Back Care Awareness Week is a week-long event organised by Backcare, the charity for healthier backs, of which the aim is to raise awareness about the problems back pain can cause, as well as prevention and treatments.
