Wheelchair Stair Climbers
What is a wheelchair stair climber?
A stair climber is a battery-powered, fully mobile piece of equipment that easily climbs up or down a staircase. It comes with a seat or as a wheelchair carrier. Using stair climbers for disabled and older people is a fairly common practice all over the modern world.
Anglian Lifts offer a great range of compact, easy-to-use, and battery-powered devices in association with the Stair Climbing Company. We can supply a stair climber for elderly use in the home, or provide disabled mobility assistance for commercial use (e.g. care homes or hotels).
Stair climbers are very portable, making them versatile and easy to use. They can be dismantled into two pieces, making your stair climber easier to carry with you wherever you go. You can also quickly charge the battery. Furthermore, you enjoy a two-year manufacturer’s warranty on all our products.
