The Handicare 1000 stairlift with Smart Seat is one of the slimmest stairlift tracks around featuring a hidden rack which allows for minimal infringement into the staircase.
Whilst being elegant, simple and has a minimal footprint on your staircase the Handicare 1000 stairlift has the heaviest weight capacity in the Handicare stairlift range.
The 1000 also has an automatic seat swivel function when arriving at the top of the staircase, the seat automatically pivots towards the landing, so you can get on and off safely.
The hidden stairlift track of the Handicare 1000 allows for minimal infringement into the staircase. The hidden aluminium track also has two park points as standard enabling the battery to be charged both at the top and the bottom of the staircase.
A standard feature of the Handicare 1000 is the automatic folding footrest which automatically folds up reducing the space required when not in use.
The Handicare 1000 stairlift is also compatible with the use of a powered hinge to prevent the stairlift from blocking access to doorways or walkways at the bottom of your stairs.

Our stairlift installers at Easy Mobility Services have many years experience installing stairlifts in a variety of homes. We take pride in exceeding our customers’ expectations when carrying out a stairlift installation.
We take the time to ensure our customers are completely happy and confident before we start any installation. We conduct a thorough survey using the latest photographic technology and with the help of Handicares revolutionary ‘Vision App’, our customers can literally see what their stairlift will look like in their home before any work has begun. This allows our customers to show the stairlift to their friends and family and make sure they are totally happy with how the stairlift will look once installed.
A typical stairlift installation will only take a few hours and our stairlift installers will ensure your home is left clean and tidy once the work has been completed.
