Handicare’s Stairlifts have helped thousands of people overcome the problems posed by going up and down their stairs at home.


The Handicare 2000 stairlift suits most staircases with bends or corners and offers you all the basic functions that you would expect plus the option to upgrade to a powered seat swivel and/or folding footplate.​

With a choice of six upholstery colours and two track colours the Handicare 2000 compliments most colour schemes.

Fitted to the stairs, not the wall, it is unlikely you will need to redecorate following the installation of your Handicare 2000 stairlift.


Like all Handicare stairlifts the Handicare 2000 has a battery backup which means it will continue to work in the event of a power cut so you do not need to worry about being stranded up or downstairs.


The compact unit folds up leaving the staircase free for other users and the bespoke track is designed to fit your individual staircase and maximise clear space on the stairway. It can be supplied with a powered hinged track if required.


The Handicare 2000 also comes with two remote controls which means, once folded, you can easily send it to the upstairs charge point freeing up space in your hallway.

Subject to terms and conditions

The first thing to remember is that all stair lifts were not created equal! Although there is an ever growing demand for stair lift equipment, it is truly amazing how many out dated products are being installed in peoples homes throughout theUK. This old technology equipment can be troublesome for the user - why? - because it's unreliable. Things have moved on since the days of chain drives and trailing cables.

Modern stair lifts, like the Handicare 2000 Stair Lift, are state of the art, in terms of design and manufacture, yet are so simple to install and maintain.

As with most things - there is a baffling amount of choice out there in the marketplace. When choosing a piece of equipment like a stair lift, it is important to ensure that you are making like-for-like comparisons. Think carefully when buying this type of product via the internet. Your first real opportunity to clearly see the features, engineering (and limitations) of your new stair lift, are when it arrives on your doorstep.

Perch Seat

If you have restricted movement in the knee or hip joints you may find sitting painful. In these situations a perch Smart seat may be the best solution for you.

A Perch seat means that the user is almost in a standing position when they are using the lift. There is a shortened seat (and retractable seat belt) which provides a stable support area for users to ‘perch’ on. This means that Perch Seats may also provide a solution for particularly narrow staircases where a user would not have room to travel in a seated position.

Upholstery is available in a choice of six colours.

Your Handicare supplier will be able to advise you which seat is most suited to your needs.
