While stairs are a common structural amenity in many homes, they can make the lives of some individuals incredibly difficult. There are many people who live in homes with stairs or who frequently visit family members with two-story homes that find themselves unable to climb stairs by themselves. Some individuals are fearful that they will fall down the stairs due to age or an injury, while others suffer from chronic pain that makes the movement that traveling up and down stairs requires excruciatingly painful or have limited mobility that makes stair-climbing impossible. Whatever their reason, there are many individuals who do not feel comfortable living in their own homes because of its stairs and are in need of assistance.
The Liftkar has many simple controls that allow patients to customize their stair-climbing experience to make themselves as comfortable as possible. It has three speed settings and can change between a single-step mode that climbs one stair at a time and a continuous mode that can climb an entire set of stairs, even a spiral staircase, with the flip of a switch. The Liftkar holds patients who weigh up to one hundred sixty kilograms and is designed for both left and right-handed people. It also features a mobile charger and extra battery pack, so battery life is not a concern.
Comfort is top priority with the Liftkar. It is designed with an ergonomic, soft-upholstered seat and features soft armrests and adjustable headrest and armrests to adapt to every patient’s unique needs. The Liftkar also comes with a choice of a seatbelt system to ensure that patients remain safe while they are using the chair.
