Alliance seat

The Alliance’s ‘retro’ styling delivery brings a classic yet contemporary feel to your stairlift. Its combination of real wood a choice of three leather look cushioned upholstery options can be chosen to complement your décor and rail colour which is also available in a choice of three standard colours.

Compatible with our single trail curved system, the Alliance can be combined with our Drop nose or market leading curved hinged rail making it suited for use in homes with restricted hallway space. The seat, arms and footrest all fold up neatly to leave as much space free for other stair users if required.

  • Turn & Go

Turn and Go has been specially developed to help those customers who have a very narrow curved staircase. Once seated, your seat will turn automatically so that your back faces the stairs, not the wall or handrail, during travel and thereby move your knees away from clashes with the wall or bannister. It can also be used to help those who have difficulty bending their knees to fit into the available stair width.

This unique and patented development provides assistance for those users who would like some additional support when getting on or off the stairlift.

It can also provide a greater sense of security when sitting down as the seat can be felt directly behind you.

Standing Up

The Active Seat lever is next to the seat; when seated you simply lift it up to activate the seat. Using the arm rests for additional stability, you will benefit from a gentle boost as you rise to the standing position.

The Active Seat will then remain in an upward position ready to assist when you sit down again.

Sitting Down

Using the arm rests for additional stability, sit down as normal, the seat will give you extra support so you can sit in a gentle and controlled manner.

Healthcare professionals are really enthusiastic about the easy to use Active Seat which can also improve carer assisted transfers by reducing the physical assistance required to support the sitting or standing action.

The Active Seat puts you in control because you can choose when to use it. This makes it ideal for conditions where physical ability varies on a day to day basis as it is on hand to provide help as needed.

Thanks to the powered and illuminated footplate, you no longer have to bend down to fold up the footplate. At the press of a button, the footplate automatically folds up or down whilst you remain seated. The footplate is also illuminated when it is folded down, which makes it easy to see in the dark. This means there is no danger of others tripping over the footplate at night or in low light conditions.

The powered and illuminated footplate is available for the Alliance, Elegance and Classic seats.

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.

When you arrive at the top of the stairs, you will need to swivel your seat around so that you exit onto the landing safely. All Handicare stairlifts come with a manual swivel that is operated from a handle located at either side of the seat.

Choosing a powered swivel option removes the need to you to operate the lever and turn the seat: simply continue to hold the toggle in the direction of travel when you arrive at the top of the rail and the seat will automatically turn to face the landing.
