STAXI: World’s Leading Nestable Transport Chair

Looking for a nestable transport chair?  STAXI is now “established globally as the leading wheelchair alternative and is the best selling nestable transport chair worldwide.”  The STAXI chairs are developed specifically for busy facilities (e.g. hospitals, airports, amusement parks, etc.) to provide temporary transportation for individuals who cannot walk long distances.

STAXI Chair

Andy Hart founded the STAXI Corporation Limited after his son, Julian, became disabled after an auto accident.  Hart soon discovered the shortcomings of the conventional wheelchair.  “I couldn’t help but ask: Why do I have to hunch over to push a wheelchair?  Why is a wheelchair’s seat so low?  Why can’t I slide  Julian from his wheelchair to another chair without lifting him up?  Why do I have to remember to apply the brake – isn’t safety a priority?  Why is it so hard to push?”

Hart is a qualified engineer and was determined to develop a product that is functional for the optimum quality of life.  “In 1985, in conjunction with the Centre for Studies in Aging, Sunnybrook & Women’s College Health Sciences, we developed and patented a revolutionary, clinically developed, transport chair design.”

The final product is the STAXI chair, featuring ergonomic designs such as:

  • No-lift side patient transfer
