The solution?

A stair climber that ensures safe and seamless access within their home. Tackling mobility challenges that will no longer hinder a patient’s timely discharge from the hospital.

Bed-blocking is an increasing present problem for NHS facilities. It occurs when patients remain in hospital beyond the time they need to be there, known as delayed discharge, which can lead to beds going unused and overcrowding within hospitals. This has serious repercussions on the quality of patient experience and satisfaction; it also drives up costs associated with additional length of stay – estimated at £820 million per year.

The NHS are struggling with discharging restricted mobility patients due to the unsuitability of the patients home. This is causing a massive issue with bed blocking. Government fi gures show that over 45% of patients to be discharged need at least 6 weeks of support from health and social services to aid full recovery.

With timescales and budgets at the forefront The Stair Climbing Company are meeting the demands of those in need. Safely overcoming the barrier of using stairs, the stair climber is the best solution and doesn’t involve any delayed stay in hospital whilst adaptions at home are made. This allows patients to be discharged in days rather than weeks or months and ultimately relieving pressure from the NHS.

With assistance the Stair climbers allow the patient to access all levels of the home without having to rearrange the whole house. They feature an integral seat or can accommodate a wheelchair . With a slimline, fold away design they can accommodate narrow or spiralled stairs and are easy to store away when not in use.
