Manual Hinge

A manual hinged track means you will need to raise and lower the end of the track manually. The hinge is designed to make manual operation as easy as possible.

Automatic Powered Hinge

Handicare stairlifts can also be supplied with an automatic hinged track which means when operating the stairlift from the toggle, the hinge will lift/lower automatically. This removes the need to bend down when lifting or lowering the rail.

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 those requiring full powered options, the 950+ is a stylish solution that overcomes the challenges of climbing straight stairs. It combines the continuous charge track of the 950 with the seat of the Handicare 1000, which means it is available in a selection of six colours.

    The 950+ offers the choice of manual or powered folding footrest and swivel options.

    The 950+ is compatible with the Handicare's unique powered Slide Track or manual hinge system so if you have a doorway close to the bottom of your stairs the 950+ offers you a choice of solutions to prevent the track from causing an obstruction.

    As the name suggests, the 950+ incorporates all the standard features of the 950, but with the option of upgrading the stairlift with a host of useful powered and automatic options and extras.

    The ergonomic toggle control was designed in consultation with occupational therapists, making the operation of the stairlift simple and easy, even for users with joint problems, such as arthritis or rheumatism.

    A major benefit of the 950+ is its continuous charging function. Unlike some other stairlifts, the 950+ does not have to be parked at a designated charge point - the lift is charged at any point along the entire length of the track, so you can leave the stairlift wherever you want and be confident that it is on a charge point and ready to use.

    The seat on the 950+ is wipe-clean and available in a choice of six colours.
