Moorfields (Box Hill)

Problem
Moorfields (Box Hill) is a purpose built 120 bed facility comprising two main buildings built on different levels, adjacent to parkland, shopping center and social clubs such as the RSL. External roads and walkways with a steep incline link the two buildings. No arrangements were made for lifts or level walkways in the design of the building.

Carers push wheelchairs up and down the steep incline.

Resident access to the community venues relied on staff being available to push the wheelchairs up the hill.

The result has been a high risk of staff injuries due to the high force required to push the wheelchairs and high levels of staff fatigue.

The pushing of tub chairs and other large chairs over carpeted areas in bedrooms, lounge and dining room was also identified as a manual handling risk, adding to staff injury.

Solution
Rollee power packs for wheel chairs and tub chairs

Moorfields collaborated with Lockwood Electric Mobility to develop the Rollee Power Packs, which secured to wheel chairs or tub chairs. This equipment allowed the implementation of a No Push policy.

The risk of injury associated with pushing wheel chairs up and down steep inclines and pushing heavy chairs over carpet has been eliminated. Staff are less fatigued and residents are better able to access community
