Manufacturer's product description

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.
