It is equally effective on interior and outdoor stairways, straight, spiral, or narrow, made from materials including carpet, wood, stone or metal.
No. The unique climbing mechanism and abrasion-resistant tires fully protect the steps.
The fully charged battery can climb as many as 300 steps when carrying a person weighing approx. 155 lbs. That is equivalent to about 20 floors. Under normal usage, the battery should last 3-4 years.
At the push of a button, the electric motor takes care of all the climbing work. Guiding the scalamobil requires some coordination but very little strength.
For the basic Scalamobil S35, the steps should be at least 4.5 inches deep and no higher than 8 inches. If your stairs are taller than 8” then consider the Scalamobil S38, which accommodates stairs as high as 10”.
The scalamobil can be used on all kinds of steps, whether outdoors or in public buildings. It is easily dismantled into three parts, and fits in most car trunks.
Built-in safety monitors have assured its successful use around the world for over 20 years. We will work with you to determine your stair-climbing application, with special consideration given to the integrity of your stairways, the ability of the operator, and the needs of the person being transported. With those factors in mind, we will help you design the most effective combination of climber and accessories.

The Scalamobil works with just about any 16” or 18” wheelchair, and can be accessorized to accommodate a wide variety of climbing situations. Keep in mind that its lifting capacity is 306 lbs – combined chair and user weight.
