The operator always has a relaxed posture and a straight back while using the Liftkar PT. There is no strain on the back or arms because the stair climber is balanced during operation. The operator has one hand on the crossbar and one hand on the UP-DOWN switch.
The Liftkar PT’s patented mechanical mechanism and stable base converts the climbing movment into a relaxing comfortable transition up and down the stairs.
Robust automatic step brake wheels stop the Liftkar PT reliably on the edge of the step. The wear–free brake lining inside the main wheel provides a secure hold for immediate braking.
All functions within easy reach: ON/OFF, speed adjustment, switching from single step mode to continuous mode can all be selected while using the Liftkar PT on the stairs.
Liftkar PT is lightweight, disassembles into three parts, and can easily be stored in any vehicle.
