PS Universal Personal Stairclimber

Model: PS Universal

PS Universal… the versatile professional.

The battery powered PS Universal is a roll-on / roll-off ferry for any make and model of self-propelled wheelchair or sports wheelchair. Reverse with ease onto the platform, secure the height adjustable backrest in place, and take off up the stairs.

The PS Universal is ready to take on all the stair climbing jobs in your busy working day. Ideal for drivers and taxi services who transport disabled persons in their own wheelchairs.

Handle every kind of wheelchair with the PS Universal, regardless of make.

The headrest slides up and down easily to adjust to each passenger.

Safe and sound
The integral backrest restraint holds the wheelchair securely in place while you are in transit.

Save time on the stairs
No need to remove the wheels on the wheelchair. Just reverse the wheelchair onto the platforms.

Folds away to save space
The platforms on the PS Universal hinge upwards to save space. Just stow the lightweight stairclimber in your vehicle between jobs – nothing needs to be dismantled.
