A stair lift is a unique device, pulling down the thick wall between normal healthy people and people with disabilities.

This type of device for people with disabilities is relatively compact, does not require installation. It is a means of moving up ladders in areas where you cannot install a built-in design. It may be small private shops, museums, galleries and other places, stairs and walls which are not subject to redevelopment. Such machines are well suited for small shipments.

Lifts of this type are used to ensure that people, who may not be able to climb, can rise to a great height. They can also help them in different environments. It can move people to a height of 2 meters, raises in the vertical position.
Lifting units with tilting movement
- Moving in a straight path
- Moving along a complex path
The lifting structure moving in a straight path is able to carry a person in wheelchair around the staircase if the staircase is straight.
The lifts moving along a complex trajectory are able to carry person using a wheelchair around the staircase. They are the most comfortable, because it is able to deliver a person in a wheelchair both on the top and bottom, and along a complex path. These devices are programmed so that the staircase turns and change of direction of the flight are not constraints.
