Powered footplate

In order to maximize free space, all Handicare stairlifts have seats, footplates and arms that are designed to be manually folded up out of the way when not in use, allowing clear access for other stair users.

You can also choose the powered footplate option that will remove the need to bend down to fold or unfold the footplate. You can choose to have a footplate that folds up automatically when the seat is also folded up, or choose a footplate that is operated separately from a switch on the arm so you can raise and lower the footplate while seated.
