The Minivator 1000 is a straight stairlift: it can be used on a straight staircase where the stairlift is not required to travel around a corner. The stairlift runs on a slimline track which hugs the edge of the staircase. The track is fixed to the stairs and it leaves plenty of room on the staircase for other users. Slimline design is a concept that extends to the Stairlift itself, the stairlift can be folded up meaning minimum storage space is needed when the stairlift is not in use. The addition of a powered footplate makes folding the unit up even easier for users who may have trouble bending. When it comes to using the Minivator 1000 it's very straight forward. The stairlift is protected by a key switch, once switched on the toggle control is simple held in the direction of travel.
Standing stair lifts may be chosen in preference to seated models if the staircase is exceptionally narrow or if the user has a stiff leg/s and has difficulty bending their knee/s or at the hip when sitting. The user must have the endurance to stand for the time required to travel up/down. The time required will vary depending on the length of the staircase and any bends. Even a short straight flight of stairs will take over a minute. Standing stairlifts usually have one or two guard rails that the user can hold onto during transit.
As with standing stairlifts perching stairlifts usually have one or two guard rails that the user can hold onto during transit.
Standing and perching stairlifts share several of the same optional features as seated stairlifts such as, folding footplates and hinged rails. For more information on stair lift features click here or read about Fred's standing stairlift.
