Handicare 1000 Straight Stairlift
Founded in 1886 Handicare have been supplying seated stairlifts since 1961. The Handicare 1000 straight stairlift has one of the slimmest tracks available. When not in use, the footrest, seat and arms can be folded up. This means the lift takes up less room leaving more space for other stair users.
The Handicare 1000 has a slimline anodised aluminium track with a concealed rack. It therefore looks very neat and the rail is quite unobtrusive. There are two park (charging) points as standard. As a result, the batteries will be charged when it is parked at the top or the bottom of the staircase. Therefore the batteries are always fully charged, ready for use. This means the Handicare 1000 can be used even during a power cut. Once the power is restored the stairlift will charge the batteries back to full power provided it is left on a park point. Due to the concealed rack and the anodised finish, the slim track looks very neat and clean.
Obstructions, such as doorways, close to the bottom of the stairs can be a problem for some stairlifts. Not for the 1000 as a result of the optional powered hinge fitted to the track, if required, see video below. This automatically lifts the track out of the way of the doorway when the stairlift is not in use.
Choice of Upholstery:
The Smart Seat is available in a choice of six upholstery colours. Enough to blend in with most colour schemes, of, if your feeling bold, to contrast with your décor. However, the outdoor version is only available in slate grey.
Optional powered features are available. In addition to the powered hinge, other powered options can be specified. For example a powered swivel to turn the seat at the top of the staircase as well as a powered folding foot rest to stow it away after use.
The 1000 also has the option of a Perch Seat for users who cannot travel in a seated position. This could be, for example, due to knee or hip problems. Also, in certain instances, this could even be a solution for a very narrow staircase. As a result of the raised, shallow perch seat, the lift is used in a standing position.
Together with a few modifications, and a waterproof cover, the 1000 stairlift is suitable for most outdoor applications. In addition to these modifications the Handicare exterior stairlift comes with UV stable slate grey upholstery and an anti-slip footrest. It is therefore the perfect solution if you have steps to your front or back door. Furthermore you can therefore use the Outdoor Handicare 1000 to access your garden where there are steps due to changes in levels. In conclusion, steps leading up to your property, or even within your garden, can be fitted with an exterior stairlift.
This stairlift is suitable for use by people weighing up to 137 kg / 21½ stone as standard. In addition there is an XXL upgrade available which raises the maximum capacity to 200 kg / 31½ stone.
Customer Reviews for the Handicare 1000 Straight Stairlift:
REQUEST A CALLBACK
A lot of companies boast a 24/7 service and maintenance offering, but few actually deliver. I can honestly say that Obam do that and we had our stairlift back up and running within hours of calling them

It takes up no room at all and the handy wall-mounted controls mean that you can call it to the top or bottom of the staircase without having an operator in the chair.

Mrs E, Eastwood Obam
To all the members of the team concerned in the installation of my OBAM stair-lift a heartfelt thank-you.
Paul applied his problem solving skills to my access difficulties and came up with the ideal solution, Brian applied his carpentry wizardry –Steve his electrical knowledge and Will completed the fitting. Everybody worked so hard in soaring temperatures to fit a lift that only travels a few feet and up a very small incline, but that enables me to access my home with ease.
Everest is scaled on a daily basis!
