Handicare 1000

This slimline aluminium track has a hidden rack with two park points as standard so the battery can be charged at the top or bottom of the stairs. It can also be supplied with a powered hinge to prevent the track obscuring a doorway at the base of the stairs.

The 1000 straight stairlift comes as standard with a (manual) fold away footrest, seat and arms meaning the lift takes up less room when not in use, allowing more space for other stair users. 

A sleek and durable solution that is perfect for both the indoors and outdoors

The sleekest track in our range, the 1000 provides minimal intrusion into the staircase. Its anodized aluminum rail offers a stylish and unexposed solution with a hidden gear rack that can safely lift up to 440 lbs. Handicare has been a world leader in innovative lifting and mobility solutions for 130 years, providing safe solutions such as the 1000 stairlift.

Stairlift seat swiveled to allow easy exit


For an easier exit, swivel your seat toward the landing once you reach the top, either manually or upgrade to our automatic powered option.

Stairlift will stop if it detects objects in the way - Safety Sensors


Surrounded by safety sensors, Handicare stairlifts are designed to stop if meeting an obstruction keeping you safe and still on your seat.

Easy to use toggle on the arm rest of the stairlift for easy access


The toggle control was designed in collaboration with occupational therapists to ensure it is easy-touse and operate – simply push with your hand, arm or wrist in the direction you want to go.
