A company that owns a group of care homes in Berkshire has recently purchased from Baronmead two Alber Scalamobil S35 wheelchair stairclimbers to assist residents in moving people up & down stairs when their passenger lifts are not working. They chose the Alber Scalamobil S35 from Baronmead because of the flexibility & ease of use, as it is fully mobile they can share the unit around the group of care homes when their lifts are not working allowing residents carry on as normal, in the past when they haven’t had the stair climbers residents can’t leave their rooms & can miss hospital appointments.
Baronmead have been supplying powered mobile stair climbers since the early 1980’s and are pleased to be working in partnership with this group of care homes.
Having researched disabled facilities at restaurants and bars in London over the last two decades, I have often heard the following from restauranteurs: ‘We don’t have a ramp (and/or disabled toilet) as this is a Grade II Listed Building…’
The latest restaurant to say this to me was Sketch in Conduit St. W1. I wanted to take advantage of their offer to see the Hockney Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, followed by lunch in their Michelin starred Library & Lecture Room. However, there is a flight of stairs to negotiate before getting to the restaurant and no lift, but their staff were very willing to help and would carry me upstairs.

Baronmead have recently provided a UK school with a T09 wheelchair stairclimber to overcome the many steps around the campus.
The T09 can now be moved to assist the disabled pupils with steps in various parts of the buildings. Once the unit has done its job it is stored away from the staircase allowing the staircase to be accessed by the many pupils without restrictions of a fitted access lift on the stairs. The T09 can lift people in their wheelchairs up to 130 kgs up and down steps and stairs.
