One of our customers recently shared a personal account of how the Scalamobil allowed his mother to stay in her home. A traditional stair lift required a permanent installation at twice the cost of the Scalamobil and Scalachair accessory. The product became a viable stair access alternative to relocation.  After 15 years of providing this unique and important product, we have many satisfied Scalamobil users and riders. Here’s one of their stories….

ScalamobilAfter researching (for a long time) ways to help move my disabled mother up and down stairs to and from her bedroom, I was excited to find the Scalamobil IQ. After using it for over a year, I am still excited and eternally grateful for the product. It has saved many headaches and backaches in a two story house with a narrow stairway. It is super easy to use and one does not need to be strong to do it. The braking system going down stairs is brilliant. It also works really well as a narrow transfer chair around the house. We don’t go out much, but it would be easy to transport as it easily breaks down.

These devices are bolted to the tread of the stairs and provide push-button access on straight, curved, indoor or outdoor stairs. Most are battery powered stair chairs that run smoothly and quietly up and down the stairs on an installed track. [click to Read More…]
