During the design stage Otoloift did everything possible to make the chair and rail as compact as possible.
The rail tubes are slim and mount very close to the wall and the lift body is compact and comfortable, leaving plenty of room for other staircase users.
Because the tubes are slim it is possible to negotiate very tight bends without encroaching on the rest of the staircase. Also as the seat angle is controlled by the distance separating the tubes there is no complicated electronic levelling system, thus keeping cost to a minimum.
There are several clever options available including powered swivel and although the manual footrest has a lever to operate, it is also available with a motorised power version for added convenience.
Furthermore, there is also a choice of two types of rail ends if you have restricted space at the bottom of the stairs, there is a folding section or a sliding extension depending on the amount of space available or personal preference.
On top of this, there is a choice of ten upholstery options/colours and three rail colours.
If you are unable to bend your knees there is the option of the stand & perch chair and if you have put on a bit of weight over the years there is also a heavy duty model that takes up to 165kg (26 stone).
