Designed for curved staircases, stairs with intermediate landings or where out-of-the-way parking is desired. Durable, reliable and easy to use. Battery operated with built-in charging stations so the chair is always ready to go even during a power failure.

Many people dread the thought of moving just to avoid climbing stairs. After all, this is the home you’ve enjoyed for many years with family and friends. The Savaria Stairfriend can give you the freedom to stay in your home and enjoy it without the worry of navigating stairs. Ride in comfort around curves, landings or changes in direction with the Stairfriend, specifically designed for your home.

Installing the Savaria Stairfriend usually involves only two visits to your home. The first visit includes a precision measuring session to ensure a perfect fit for your stairs and the installation is easily completed on the second visit. Move up, not out with Stairfriend, from industry leader Savaria.



Landings Or Turns:

The Stairfriend can be installed on virtually any type of staircase. Many staircases feature an intermediate landing that may also accommodate a turn in the direction of the stairs. Stairfriend can easily be configured to travel at virtually any angle to follow the path of your stairs. The travel rail can be mounted close to the wall on self support posts or alongside the railing.

Curves Or Spirals:

Spiral or curved stairs can be very complex to accurately measure by hand, but with the Savaria photo measuring system, no curves are too challenging to measure with accuracy. This ensures a perfect fit for installation, making installation services very efficient.

Optional Features:

The Stairfriend can also accommodate optional features such as out-of-the way parking, that allows you to park your chair away from the bottom or top of your stairs. You can also add an overrun of rail to extend the Stairfriend stop position to a more convenient location. These optional features can be added to any configuration of stairs.
