The challenge

Cricket transfer aid


The client’s carers use a Cricket transfer aid and are concerned that, when transferring to/from the top of the stairlift, the wheels of the Cricket will topple over.

A simple plywood stop was made that can be easily placed at the top of the stairs by the carers when needed, but can be removed to avoid creating a tripping hazard for others..
