Stiltz synergises with OT Show professionals to deliver positive outcomes
Domestic homelift manufacturer Stiltz has reported receiving significant enquiries from healthcare professionals during this year’s OT Show, with delegates highlighting an increased positive familiarity with both the company and its products.
Stiltz works with occupational therapists, Housing Improvement Agencies and case managers so that occupational performance is maximised for clients. According to the company, its homelifts are becoming a preferred prescriptive choice for professionals due to their provision of a future-proofed alternative to traditional through-floor lifts or stairlifts.
At The OT Show, the Stiltz stand showcased the two-person Duo and three person/wheelchair Trio homelifts. These shaft-free solutions replace the need to use stairs, which removes associated safety risks for disabled and elderly people.
Negating the need to relocate or incur costly building adaptations, a Stiltz solution offers flexible and straightforward installation for independence at home. With client well-being and safety improved, strain on NHS care and social services are also reduced, a point which Stiltz says could be an attractive consideration for healthcare professionals responsible for community enablement.
Visitors were signposted to the stand by eye-catching Stiltz-branded stilt walkers who provided information regarding Disabled Facilities Grants, free CPD training and the homelifts.
Gino Farruggio, Stiltz UK Trade Sales Director, commented: “As we proactively seek to work with OTs, HIAs and Case Managers, it was clearly evident at this year’s show that more professionals are aware of our homelifts and why they provide a better solution for community independence.
“We are proud of our client-centric approach which is clinically driven to ensure appropriate products are installed within every scenario. When you consider the severe lack of cost-effective residential care, shortage of bungalows and the upheaval of ground floor adaptations or extensions, our product range offers a simple cost-effective alternative.
“Future-proofed community inclusion and enablement is our objective, which we will continue to deliver through a focused understanding of end user needs. We look forward to fulfilling all the assessment requests we received at the NEC and presenting further CPD education in 2020.”
