If you are looking for an economical and reliable stairlift, the Handicare Simplicity is definitely one to consider. Handicare Simplicity stairlifts save you money on your initial outlay, without any detriment to safety or style.
The directional toggle was designed in consultation with occupational therapists, which makes the stairlift easy to use, even for users with arthritis, rheumatism and other joint problems.
The seat on the Simplicity is finished in wipe-clean upholstery, which can be ordered in a choice of six attractive colors. The Simplicity has an optional power swivel and power footrest for ease of use and storage when not in use.
The Handicare Simplicity comes with a standard seat belt which can be fastened in the center or on the side. Safety sensors on the power pack and footrest are designed to stop the lift if it meets any obstruction.
The Slide Track
The Slide Track is a ground breaking solution for use with a Simplicity straight stairlift. This unique solution removes the need for a hinge. Instead the track moves up the staircase at the same time as the seat is moving, leaving the doorway at the base of your stairs unobstructed.
The Simplicity is available with a manual hinged track. In order for the seat to get low enough for the user to sit on it is necessary for the track to extend beyond the staircase to the hall floor. Some houses will have a doorway close to the bottom of the stairs and the track may intrude across this landing. In these circumstances a hinged track option is available. This means that the track can be folded away giving clear access.
The Simplicity Series track offers a continuous charge function meaning that the lift can be parked on any part of the track when it is not in use. This means you do not need to worry about where you leave your lift on the track as the batteries will charge in any position. The Simplicity Series are compatible with the Slide Track and manual hinge systems so if you have a doorway close to the bottom of your stairs the Simplicity Series offers you a range of solutions to prevent the track from causing an obstruction.
