STAIRCASE WITH WHEELS AND TRACKS FOR THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED
Mobility Care has decades of experience in the sale of wheeled and tracked stairlifts for the elderly. With our products we are able to support those who have difficulty walking or need a wheelchair during their daily commute and want to be able to access any place outside the home.
The sale of stairlifts for the elderly represents the core business of Mobility Care; these aids have a capacity ranging from 130 kg to 150 kg and differ in two types of product:
STAIRLIFT WITH TRACKS
STAIRCASE WITH WHEELS
The crawler stairlifts can only be used on straight staircases with regular steps and with landings without a gooseneck staircase. Obviously there must be a minimum width of the stairwell that allows the rotation of the vehicle with the assisted person on board the machine. This aid allows you to transport the person only through the use of a wheelchair. During the ascent or descent of the stairs you can safely make a stop: the vehicle will remain stationary while maintaining total safety for the person being transported.
The wheeled stairlift can be used in two versions: 1. for the transport of people with slight walking difficulties in the solution with padded seat and backrest; 2. for the transport of people in wheelchairs with the version with platform. If its versatility makes it its strong point since it can overcome any type of ladder, the fact of not being able to stop while in the direction of travel can present some more doubts in terms of safety.
Getting around the city independently is still very complicated. The presence of differences in height even of just a few centimeters create obstacles that make the premises inaccessible, affecting the life of the elderly and disabled people considerably at a psychophysical level. The same problem arises again when you have to visit a loved one inside an apartment building or a private house without an electric stairwell. This is why Mobility Care offers a wide range of aids for overcoming architectural barriers inside and outside buildings.

The use of an electric stairlift, thanks to a battery installed inside the vehicle, allows you to make more trips without having to resort to the presence of a stationary charging point.
These types of stairlifts prove practical to use and are easily attached to the rear of the wheelchair through a telescopic arm in order to transport the seated person up and down the stairs in maximum safety and comfort.
WHY CHOOSE A STAIR LIFT
Why choose a stairlift? The purchase and installation of a stairlift for sale at Mobility Care can significantly improve the quality of life when disabling diseases occur that can hinder the autonomy of the elderly or disabled in climbing and descending stairs. In this case, our aids for the elderly can be the ideal solution. Mobility Care recommends this type of product in case of:
- temporary disability such as an injury or brief illness problem;
- stairs too narrow to be able to install a lifting platform;
- lack of a nearby power source to power a stairlift;
- need to access areas outside the home since it can be easily disassembled to be placed inside the trunk of your car;
- limited spending budget given the lower costs compared to other types of products;
- constant presence of a figure who guarantees the daily life of the primary functions of the assisted person.
We remind you, however, that the best choice for convenience and which guarantees your independence remains the installation of an armchair stairlift or platform stairlift; these allow to ensure full freedom of movement directly by the person with walking difficulties through the direct use of the movement controls on the machine. The use of a stairlift, on the other hand, implies the constant presence of a second person to maneuver the aid in the direction of travel.
PURCHASE OF A STAIRCASE
Mobility Care does not only deal with the sale of wheeled and tracked stairlifts for the elderly and their maintenance. The company offers a wide range of aids for the elderly and disabled with an excellent value for money. There are no doubts about the advantages deriving from the purchase of a stairlift, but unfortunately, due to lack of funds and civic sense, public places do not always have fixed solutions such as stair lifts or lifting platforms.
In Italy, according to ISTAT data of December 2016, the presence of disabled pupils during the school year 2015 – 2016 is equal to 156,000 units, approximately 3.4% of total pupils, of which 88,000 in primary school and approximately 68,000 in secondary school . Numbers destined to rise thanks to the work done in recent years on the inclusion of disabled students. The latter, however, is still limited due to the inadequacy of many buildings due to the presence of architectural barriers. Suffice it to say that in primary schools still 12.9% of pupils with disabilities are not autonomous to move within their school. The percentage drops to 11.6% as regards pupils inside the buildings intended for lower secondary school.
In these cases, the purchase of a modern design product such as the Mobility Care stairlift for the elderly and disabled is the most congenial solution while waiting to be able to obtain a loan from the Institute to be able to install a fixed stairlift so as to be able to definitively resolve the problem of accessibility of pupils within the premises.
The use of this aid must still be achieved by a person who has obtained instructions from the company itself. Mobility Care will also follow you in the post-sale of the stairlift for the elderly. Our technicians at the time of delivery will take care of providing all the information so that you can use the product right away. If the stairlift stops halfway up, you can, knowing the necessary emergency procedures, manually bring the person back to the desired floor through the appropriate maneuver with the handling device.

Our range of stairlifts is suitable for overcoming stairs according to the technical design specifications outlined in Articles 4.1.10 and 8.1.10 of Ministerial Decree No. 236 of 14 June 1989 which prescribes the technical specifications that guarantee accessibility, adaptability and visibility of private buildings and public housing subsidized and facilitated in order to ensure the overcoming and elimination of architectural barriers. They also respond to Article 7 of Presidential Decree n ° 503 of 24 July 1996 which regulates the elimination of architectural barriers in buildings, spaces and public services and Article 19.3 of the same Decree which provides for the use of mobile equipment not anchored to building structures in order to overcome the barriers architectural in buildings where the historical and aesthetic value of the protected property does not allow the installation of fixed systems.
