Stiltz Home Lifts will be demonstrating the many health and socio-economic benefits of our range of through floor home lifts at the Occupational Therapy Show later this month. (Stand C50, November 27-28, NEC, Birmingham).
The OT Show is a well-attended event for healthcare professionals seeking adaptive equipment, specialist services and CPD education. Our Stiltz through floor lifts for domestic situations are well-respected amongst healthcare professionals thanks to proven design, performance and safety.
On stand C50, we will provide educational material which highlights how greater accessibility in the home can improve physical and mental well-being. Many older and disabled people rely on assistance from relatives and carers to access upstairs – resulting in multiple self-esteem and practical issues. Increased falls and injury along with subsequent medical intervention is an escalating problem for many individuals forced to use stairs in an unsafe manner.
By prescribing an appropriate through-floor domestic lift, therapists can enhance the occupational performance of their clients whilst reducing strain on carers and the social care system. Clients can avoid costly home conversions or relocation to expensive residential care, so sustainable independence is an achievable outcome. The lack of affordable bungalows across the UK is exacerbating the issue with limited property choices for downsizing.
With installation of an attractive through floor lift, property value is enhanced and future proofed accessibility is assured without the negative connotations associated with stairlifts. Our pioneering two-person Duo through floor lift and Trio through floor wheelchair lift solutions will be available for trials at the NEC – they are unlike any other. Straightforward to install, quiet and intuitive, requiring no complex electrical connections…. client benefits are impressive and all supported by diligent care.
Our Stiltz trusted assessors work closely with Occupational Therapists to ensure individual client needs are always achieved. Evidence of these successful outcomes will be available alongside DFG funding guidance for through floor lifts for homes – supported by eye-catching ‘Stiltz walkers’ around the show.
