More than 700 care home residents fall every day(1). Yet only 4% of falls result in injury(2). Leading elderly mobility innovator AAT has introduced an innovative way to aid fall recovery, single-handedly and effortlessly- and with long-term peace of mind.

AAT’s Raizer II mobile lifting chair is a component-based portable and lightweight yet strong system that flat-packs into a convenient carry bag for storage and transportation to where needed. It means anyone, however slight or petite, can lift even an obese person from the floor. They can do so on their own, single-handedly, safely and without effort.

Importantly, not only does AAT supply the equipment, and train care staff in its use, the company also offers comprehensive ON-SITE service & maintenance. As AAT visits your premises to service the Raizer, you are never without proven, safe fall recovery measures.

Raizer is assembled around the fallen person with minimal disturbance, and minimal effort from the operator. At the push of a button the battery-motorised seat gently and consistently powers the chair and occupant from flat on the floor to a safe seated position. An end stop ensures the person is not over-elevated and gives the operator the correct position for dis-assembly after use.

The six core elements- four identical legs and two identical back sections- quickly and easily click-fit together with no risk of incorrect assembly. The occupant is fully supported  throughout the process and kept stable and safe with use of the integral adjustable seat belt. 

Raizer can safely lift any person up to 150kg/23.5st, with each charge of the battery capable of delivering up to 80 lifts.

All components are designed to be wipe clean for optimum disinfection and hygiene.

“Even conservative estimates put the number of falls in care homes at over 700/day nationwide(1)!” observes Peter Wingrave, AAT Director. “This is no reflection of the standard of care given. It does leave the resident and care staff exposed to risk in safely getting the resident back up again, particularly with the growth in obesity among residents(3). 

“Only 4% of falls result in injury requiring a visit to hospital. Use of equipment such as Raizer II can play a key role in any good moving and handling policy. It takes the effort and risk out of the procedure for all involved.

“Raizer is already proven in the market. What differentiates it- and us- now is the fact we provide comprehensive service & maintenance, on site. So there is none of the worry nor exposure of having to send it away, and in the process be without valuable, useful equipment that is needed

AAT has a proven reputation for delivery of quality-engineered, dignified technology for moving and handling elderly and disabled people. Raizer II is just part of the company’s range which includes Medical Device Class 1-certified stairclimbers and vacuum posture cushions. Raizer is already used by a number of health authorities and blue light organisations up and down the country, to facilitate safe transfer of fallen people.
