How Platform Stair Lifts Work

A constant pressure joystick controls the motion of the platform stairlift, operated by the wheelchair user.

Alternatively an attendant can call and send the platform stair lift using a ‘wander-lead’. The barrier arms must be fully lowered and ramps on either side of the platform stairlift raised before operation, giving safety and security as a wheelchair stairlift.
