You may want to choose a powered footplate that will automatically fold your footrest up or down when your seat is folded. This removes the need for you to bend.
All Handicare stairlifts come with two remote controls as standard, so you can have one upstairs and one downstairs. This means you can send your stairlift up and down the track without having to sit on it. This not only allows you to park at the top or bottom of the stairs, it is ideal for multi-user situations as your stairlift can be called between levels, just like an elevator.
Swivelling your seat
The seat of the 2000 can be swivelled at the top of the staircase. You have the choice of a powered or manual swivel function. Moreover, the track can be designed to take you from the ground floor directly onto the landing level, to suit your needs exactly.
Safety as a standard
Rapid response safety sensors stop the stairlift if it meets with an obstruction during travel. Once the obstruction is removed the stairlift can continue on its journey.
Your stairlift will also come with a seat belt as standard for additional peace of mind. Also, all Handicare stairlifts have an easily accessible key switch that allows you to disable the lift and prevent unauthorized use. You do not need to worry about unsupervised children playing with your stairlift.
How about a hinge track?
You need not worry that doorways will be obscured or that tracks will cause excesssive trip hazards. A hinge track is available for the 2000. The fully automatic hinge track will be raised and lowered without the user having to operate it.
