Handicare 1000 Straight Stairlift


The Handicare 1000 is a straight stairlift: it can be used on a straight staircase where the stairlift is not required to travel around a corner.

The stairlift runs on a slimline track which hugs the edge of the staircase. The track is fixed to the stairs and it leaves plenty of room on the staircase for other users.

The track comes with two charging points, top and bottom, when not in use the stairlift should be left on one of these points. These points are generally located where the stairlift stops. If circumstances require an alternative parking position, if a hinge track is used for example, the park position is easily located by using the park button on the remote control. Parking on the charge point keeps the battery topped up so your stairlift will continue to work in the event of a power failure.

Slimline design is a concept that extends to the Stairlift itself, the stairlift can be folded up meaning minimum storage space is needed when the stairlift is not in use. The addition of a powered footplate makes folding the unit up even easier for users who may have trouble bending.

Operating the Handicare 1000 is very straight forward. The stairlift is protected by a key switch, once switched on the toggle control is simply held in the direction of travel.

On arrival at the top of the stairs the seat is turned to face the landing so that you can get on and off your stairlift with ease. If preferred you have the option to add a powered swivel to make turning the seat even easier. A perching seat option is also available.
