Scalamobil Stair Climber
Going through a staircase can certainly be a challenge for wheelchair users. The Scalamobil then becomes a great solution because it allows a caregiver to help access the home or get to a doctor's appointment without the tremendous efforts usually required. This device makes it possible to displace a wheelchair including the person with reduced mobility in a staircase of more than 35 degrees. This product requires an alert operator in good physical shape.

This step takes less than a minute. The care giver controls the speed and direction and all is done in a safe operation. The machine does all the heavy lifting.
