When a car crash left his eldest son permanently in a wheelchair many years ago, Andy Hart, an engineer and entrepreneur, discovered the drawbacks of wheelchairs and mobility aids on the market at the time. In frustration, he turned to Dr. Geoff Fernie, a leader in the development of devices for people with disabilities. They ended up collaborating and, as good ideas became great products, Hart launched his own manufacturing and distributing company.
Among the early innovations was something that can now be found in most North American airports and hospital parking lots. The award-winning Staxi™ is a stackable transport chair designed to move people efficiently when they do not have their own wheelchair. These days, the collaboration between AJ Hart Group and Dr. Fernie’s research team at Toronto Rehab is producing all kinds of needed products. One is the SlingSerter™, an invention that lets nurses ― who have the highest rate of work-related injuries of any profession ― move patients without fear of injuring themselves. Hart is also lead licensee on another sophisticated lifting device developed at Toronto Rehab: RoboNurse can lift someone about half the weight of a small car and manoeuvre with surgical precision.
Other products include: innovative safety grab pole systems that can be mounted in the traditional floor-to-ceiling style, and a completely new system that can be cantilever-mounted from a wall.
And, concerned about the rate of hospital-acquired infections, Hart is working with Toronto Rehab researchers to introduce a potentially revolutionary product: a hand hygiene ‘prompting’ system that uses artificial intelligence to remind busy healthcare workers to wash their hands.
