Freewheel the Cricket transfer aid to wherever you need without the need for additional equipment. Manoeuvre from room to room, fit between the narrowest of seating and easily negotiate the tightest of spaces.

We have specialised in sit to stand assistive technology to help keep your clients on their feet for as long as possible. For those at risk – fall prevention; declining mobility or as part of rehab program post stroke for example, the Cricket can really make a difference – and deliver real care cost savings, guaranteed.

Helping you overcome difficulties faced in transferring from domestic chairs and/or seating arrangements whilst encouraging clients to continue weight bearing. The Cricket is available in several seat options including a paediatric adaptation.

The Cricket plays an important part when Clients continue their rehab/exercise at home, they gain more physical strength and stability of movement and in many cases only need the support of a partner or one carer. This increased independence and ability helps to improve clients’ well being, dignity and drives down the costs of care.

Judith Craig, Moving and Handling Practitioner (Partnerships), CHP Offices Stobhill Hospital
Patient donates two Crickets to Good Hope Hopspital, Birmingham after being a recent patient and benefited from using a Cricket: Sheila Selby was so appreciative of the care and support she received at Good Hope Hospital that she donated the Crickets, knowing they would make a “significant difference to both the staff and future patients on the Ward”.  Read the Good Hope Testimonial for the full story.
