Types of Stair Climbers

A stair climber is a relatively unknown choice when it comes to getting up and down the stairs safely. It always requires a second person to guide it – so for some that may rule it out straight away, but if that is not a problem for you, we recommend you have a home visit and see one in action – it’s quite a revelation, as we found out when we tested them! A stair climber has a distinct advantage because it is portable so you can use it outside the home, or when visiting others.

There are two main types of stair climber. One comes with an integral seat and the other is designed to have a wheelchair attached. Both use a sophisticated brake system to remain safely on each step, as the wheels power up or down to the next step to continue your journey – all without damaging your stairs in any way. A stair climber always needs to be operated by a capable second person, they do not need to be strong, as the stair climber does all the lifting, but they must be steady on their feet to be able to guide the stair climber and be able to use the simple controls.
