Handicare’s Remarkable Slide Track

A ground breaking solution available only from Multicare for use with a Minivator Simplicity or Simplicity+ stairlift. This unique solution removes the need for a hinge, instead the track moves up the staircase at the same time as the stairlift is moving, leaving the doorway at the base of your stairs unobstructed.

The Slide Track

The slide track will move away from or toward the floor as you travel up or down. Similar to a powered hinge, the Slide Track will work automatically when the toggle or remote is activated. The track will be slightly shorter than your staircase. The track moves with you up the stairs and reaches the top before you, it will stop whilst your stairlift continues on its journey and you can safely dismount at the top. The process is reversed when you travel back down the staircase, the track travels back down with you for safe dismount at the bottom.

The Slide Track moves toward or away from the landing as you are travelling up or down. Safety sensors are fitted at both ends of the track, these will halt the track if an obstacle is encountered during your journey. Your stairlift will continue towards the obstacle so, if safe, you can remove the obstruction. There’s is no danger of an object becoming trapped in the mechanism unlike some traditional hinged systems.
