Personal Stair-climbers offer an alternative to platform lifts and can easily be transported between different staircases and different premises. Stairclimbers are only suitable for straight stairs or staircases with landings. These can be an excellent option for residential care facilities as well as private homes.
While most models require an attendant to maneuver the stairclimber, LehnersStairmax offers a solution for the user to move up and down the stairs on their own without having to transfer or make other changes to their wheelchair.
