Handicare 1000


With one of the slimmest straight stairlift tracks on the market, the Handicare 1000 offers minimal track intrusion into the staircase.

This slimline aluminium track has a hidden rack with two park points as standard so the battery can be charged at the top or bottom of the stairs. It can also be supplied with a powered hinge to prevent the track obscuring a doorway at the base of the stairs.

The 1000 straight stairlift comes as standard with a (manual) fold away footrest, seat and arms meaning the lift takes up less room when not in use, allowing more space for other stair users.

The Smart Seat delivers a choice of six upholstery colours and optional powered features to turn the seat at the top of the staircase or fold the footrest after use.

Plus size options

The Handicare 1000 boasts our heaviest weight capacity:

  • the 1000 offers 137kg / 21½st,
  • the 1000XL 160kg / 25st
  • the XXL 200kg / 31½st.

Both the XL and the XXL are supplied with additional arm spacers to increase the distance between the arms.

Available options for this stairlift

  • Powered hinged rail: The track can be folded away from the doorway giving clear access.

Smart Seat

With a choice of six colours, the Smart seat's practical pre-formed upholstery provides a sturdy and resilient seat solution. Compatible with our twin tube curved stairlift system the Smart seat can be supplied with optional powered features to remove the need for bending to fold a footrest or turning to swivel the seat when getting on or off the stairlift upstairs.

Available Options

  • One way powered swivel seat: To automatically swivel your seat round so that you exit onto the landing safely.
  • Powered footplate: To maximize free space, you can automatically fold up the footplate.
  • Body Harness: Designed for those who need extra support.

Perch Seat

If you have restricted movement in the knee or hip joints you may find sitting painful. In these situations a Perch seat may be the best solution for you.

A Perch seat means that the user is almost in a standing position when they are using the lift. There is a shortened seat (and retractable seat belt) which provides a stable support area for users to 'perch' on. This means that Perch Seats may also provide a solution for particularly narrow staircases where a user would not have room to travel in a seated position.

Upholstery is available in a choice of six colours.
