Reliable indoors and outdoors: Ground floor, first floor, garden, basement – with the LiftKar PT you can get your whole house back. And there's more: going to the doctor's or post office, driving by car to visit friends and relatives, travelling by plane or train, going to the theatre or an exhibition – everything becomes much easier again. A powerful battery pack, mobile charger unit (available as an accessory) and a quick-change battery pack ensure that the LiftKar PT is ready for action at any time.

Safety and ergonomic handling for indoors.

The LiftKar PT S features advanced stairclimbing technology and can handle any challenge. The 130 model is designed for people up to 130 kg while the 160 is for people up to 160 kg. The soft upholstered and ergonomically-shaped seat guarantees a comfortable ride.

The stairclimber doesn't start moving down steps until the brake wheels on the lifting mechanism have reached the next step. With this level of safety, the LiftKar PT S can be manoeuvred relaxed and confidently with an upright posture and without straining your back. The handle unit is easy to adjust and is equipped with anti-slip material. Use the robust crossbar to support and hold the unit. With UP/DOWN switches on both hand grips, the LiftKar PT S does not need to be adapted when changing between left- and right-handed operators. Choose between three climbing speeds, depending on the nature of the stairs: 10, 14 or 18 steps per minute.

Models available for loads up to 130 kg and 160 kg.

Safe transport outside the home, too.

Thanks to its sturdy design with extra-large non-marking wheels, the LiftKar PT OUTDOOR is easy to manoeuvre smoothly and safely over steps, slopes and bumpy ground outside the home. This model is available for people up to 120 kg or 150 kg. The powerful braking system inside the wheel is activated when the stairclimber is tilted back slightly. This effectively prevents it rolling away on slopes or ramps. Switching between single-step and continuous mode can easily be done while on the move.

The newly-developed ergonomic seat and upholstered armrests provide the highest level of comfort. This is more than just a pleasant detail; you'll be sitting comfortably even after several hours. The LiftKar PT OUTDOOR is lightweight, can easily be dismantled into 3 sections, and is just as easy to re-assemble. It can be stowed away in the boot of a car in no timeIdeal for travelling by plane or by train.

Models available for loads up to 120 kg and 150 kg.

The simple solution for transporting patients.

With 200 mm diameter wheels and a track width of just 297 mm the LiftKar PT FOLD is ideal for very steep and narrow spiral staircases. You will quickly become familiarised with the intuitive controls on the LiftKar PT FOLD stairclimber. The most important thing is to get a feel for balance while operating the stairclimber. The integrated level switch is a great help in this respect. New personnel will quickly learn to handle this system with confidence.

The washable seat cover can be wiped clean and removed by simply undoing a zip. While you are not using the LiftKar PT FOLD it can be simply folded away! Saves space at work and on the road. The LiftKar PT FOLD is lightweight and can easily be stowed away in any vehicle. And with the in-transit charger you can recharge the battery unit on the move - so that the LiftKar PT FOLD is ready for action whenever you are.
