Loving Life Now

The Scalamobil works great! It has literally changed everything for us - up and down the stairs without any problem. And the special seat I strapped onto it works fantastic for my daughter. We are loving life here in Alaska now. Thanks so much.

Thank You!

First off, many thanks for the speedy service. I'm using a transport service and even the driver was impressed with the operation of the unit. Again many thanks and I'm glad to have bought the scalamobil to help me move my mom easily down and up the stairs. The alternative of building a ramp would have cost too much and the red tape at the building dept would have taken too long.

Happy friend

The session with the Scalamobil was so wonderful. It's the
first time I've seen my friend happy and smiling for a long time. Thank you for all your patience and understanding.

Perfect for our son

Your Scalamobil is a godsend. We use it every day to get our son out to school and back. It’s safe and easy and I don’t know what we’d do without it.

Great for Me and My Wife

I use the Scalamobil with the Scalaport attachment to get my wife out of the house for Dr appointments and to see her friends. It has saved my back and allows my wife to feel more independent.

Great for Adult Day Care

Our adult day program has used the Scalamobil for several years. It rides with the shuttle to accommodate our participants when picked up and dropped off at their homes, so it gets heavy usage. Without the Scalamobil, their participation would not be possible. Thank you Max-Ability.

10 Years and Going Strong

We’ve had our Scalamobil for over 10 years. It has served us very well on a daily basis for our inside and outside stairs. The only service we’ve required is a battery change. I don’t know what we would do without it.

What kind of staircases does it work on?

It is equally effective on interior and outdoor stairways, straight, spiral, or narrow, made from materials including carpet, wood, stone or metal.

Could it damage my staircase?

No. The unique climbing mechanism and abrasion-resistant tires fully protect the steps.

How far can I climb with a single charge of the battery?

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.

How much strength do I need to operate the Scalamobil?

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.

Does it matter what size my steps are?

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”.

Can the Scalamobil also be used outside the house?

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.

What is the Scalamobil’s safety record?

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.

What size wheelchairs does it work with?

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.

I’m having trouble deciding between the Scalamobil and the Stair-Trac. Can you help me?

Here's a side-by-side comparison of the differences in the two products. Call us if you need more help. We’d love to talk with you about your particular circumstances.

If I get the Scala Chair, will I still need an additional wheelchair?

Maybe not. The Scala Chair can be detached from the climber and used as wheelchair or transport chair. Depending on the user's needs, that might be all that's necessary.
