PS Adapt | Personal Stairclimber

PS Adapt Personal Stairclimber

Model: PS Adapt

The PS Adapt is a stairclimber to use with your own wheelchair.

Get up and down stairs from the comfort of your own wheelchair.

The PS Adapt is a battery powered lifting unit designed to attach to your own choice of wheelchair. All we need is the make and model of your wheelchair and we can fit the necessary adapters to your PS Adapt Personal Stairclimber.

It’s this easy:

Step 1.  Roll PS Adapt under wheelchair and engage with locking plates

Step 2.  Raise the wheelchair by lifting the PS Adapt

Step 3.  Remove the wheels from the wheelchair… and away you go!

Now you can negotiate narrow and winding stairs with ease. Then, simply reattach the wheels to your wheelchair to move freely within your environment. There is no need to detach the stairclimber, just raise the lifting unit so the wheelchair can be used normally with the PS Adapt still attached.
