1997 Device to enable a person in a wheelchair to be carried up and down stairs with no fixings to the stairwell – A TADACT project – not in Productions catalog

An elderly couple had moved into a first floor flat but the wife subsequently found she was having difficulty walking and required a wheelchair. Moving again so soon was not an option so TADACT was asked for a solution.

Fortunately a furniture removal company had a redundant stair crawler device, battery operated with a rubber track under which lent itself to modification to hold a wheelchair and occupant safely. Although a little cumbersome it worked and both clients were happy for several years in the same flat.

We were fortunate the climber became available but it is most unlikely it will be repeatable.
