Statement
COVID-19

Issued 4th November 2020

Coronavirus: Covid-19 continues to bring an unprecedented global challenge. Stiltz Ltd. has been and will continue to review activities daily to comply with the guidelines issued by the Government.

Stiltz is a proud member of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) through whom we are co-ordinating industry efforts to keep the most vulnerable living safely in their own homes.

Reducing the instance of accidents within the home will help reduce stress on the NHS hospital care system. 

For existing customers, a Stiltz Homelift can be that lifeline to independence. Our home care support policy means Stiltz engineers continue to provide an essential service by maintaining customers’ lifts for ongoing safe, reliable and independent access while acting within Government guidelines.

You can contact our service and breakdown helpline any time, day or night, on 0330 053 5749.

For new homelift installations, we offer the options of a phone call, remote video consultation via tablet/laptop/smartphone, or email consultation. For those with an urgent in-home consultation need, we will minimise risk by following the latest Government guidelines.

Additional processes have been put in place to mitigate risk to you, our staff and the wider Stiltz community:

We will request confirmation that nobody at the property we are due to visit has Covid-19 or is defined as extremely vulnerable. If Covid-19 is present, or a person is isolating or deemed as extremely vulnerable, we will follow government advice.

All customer visits will be subject to additional sanitation measures. Stiltz installers/engineers will wash or sanitise their hands before entering your property and upon leaving. They will not offer to shake hands, will refuse offers of a beverage and will maintain the prescribed 2-metre distance.

All office and field-based staff will continue to be issued regular health and safety bulletins.

All field-based staff will confirm they are clear of symptoms before commencing their working day.

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 follow government advice at all times. We all owe a duty of care to our families, other employees, our customers and the rest of our community. Our priority is customer and staff safety whilst continuing to provide the necessary home care support to ensure vital independence.

Stiltz Lifts are delighted to announce a former British Army corporal has agreed to become the brand ambassador for our unique range of home lifts.

Josh Boggi, 30, who bought a wheelchair-friendly Stiltz Trio Home Lift in 2015, will act as a spokesperson for the company and represent the business at both trade and consumer events.

Josh served in Afghanistan and was injured in a bomb blast in 2010 which resulted in him losing both of his legs and his right arm. He was later fitted with life-changing prosthetic limbs and is now a professional sportsman.

Josh, whose motto is ‘Life Goes On’, was presented with the Overcoming Adversity award by cycling legend Sir Bradley Wiggins as part of The Sun newspaper’s Annual Military Awards in 2013 after cycling 420 miles on a hand bike from Paris to London to raise money for injured comrades.

One year later, he represented the United Kingdom Armed Forces Team in the first-ever Invictus Games in London – an international Paralympic-style, multi-sport event devised by Prince Harry for wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel. Josh won bronze in cycling. At the 2016 Invictus Games, he won two gold medals and two silver medals in cycling and indoor rowing.

Josh is currently training for the Race Across America (RAAM) in June this year – which has been dubbed the world’s most grueling bicycle race – where he as well as seven others – will represent the Help for Heroes Cycling team. Racers must cycle 3,089 miles across 12 states and climb over 180,000 vertical feet.

Josh said: “I am delighted to have become a brand ambassador for Stiltz Lifts. Having been a Stiltz customer for more than two years, I know how impressive their home lift products are.

“My Stiltz Home Lift has made a huge difference to my life. It means if I take my prosthetic legs off, I don’t have to climb up the stairs which makes life much simpler and easier. I wanted my home to look as normal as possible and my domestic lift is really stylish and doesn’t look like a disabled lift.

“My Stiltz Lift tucks discreetly into the corner; it is a brilliant product and worth every penny – and you can’t put a price on quality of life. When Stiltz approached me about becoming their ambassador, it was an easy decision for me to say yes.”

Yola Mealing, Marketing Manager for Stiltz Lifts, said: “Josh is a remarkable person and an inspiration to us all. He has an incredible story to share and we are delighted that he has accepted the role of brand ambassador with the company.

“There are still many people in a similar situation to Josh who might be unaware that compact and attractive home lifts are available. We are hoping Josh can help us raise awareness so our lifts can improve the lives of many others too.” You can read Josh’s incredible story here.
