Stanley offer a very strong range of mobility products for use in education environments, designed to improve user mobility, comfort and boost the quality of life for those that are less able-bodied, whilst ultimately improving operations, efficiency and the professional image of educational establishments nationwide.
Suitable for the education sector we have two types of wheelchair stairclimber, one being the Tolo and the other the Jolly.
The Tolo is a battery-powered wheelchair unit, which enables users to ascend and descend the majority of staircases that may be located around schools, universities, colleges and beyond, without having to be moved between chairs.
The key benefit of this particular piece of equipment is that it enables the user to easily navigate the establishment independently. However, a trained operator is needed to guide the user up and down stairs during the stair climbing process, which is a very straightforward task, completed at the touch of a button.
The seat itself is fully equipped with a foldable armrest, headrest and adjustable footrest which all aid posture. Various attachments and configurations can also be supplied for a more tailored solution.
The other wheelchair stair climber ideal for learning environments is the Jolly, which allows most types of wheelchair to be fitted onto its secure systems frame. It is designed to work with electric chairs, wheelchairs with tilting or movable backrests and even pushchairs. It is a fully-collapsible unit with a range of customisable features, such as a large base plate for larger wheelchair designs.
It can easily be dismantled into two separate pieces which enable it to be transported in a car, school bus or coach. The key benefit for this particular stair climber is that it enables users to be transported from within their own wheelchair, which offers a very dignified solution and has minimal impact on staff.
