The satisfied owners of stair chair lifts really enjoy how they are able to move from floor to floor effortlessly. For many people, having a disabled stair lift is the difference between being able to stay at home with the family, and needing to move to an assisted living facility. This can be a worrisome for many as they watch their physical strength or dexterity wane.
In this article we will review six Minivator stairlift models. After you have looked at all of them, you will have a much better idea what stair chair lift might be the most suitable for you. The six Minivator models are: Minivator Simplicity and Minivator Simplicity Plus, Minivator 1000 Indoor and Minivator 1000 Outdoor, Minivator 2000, and Minivator Perch. Let’s take a quick look at each individually:
Minivator Simplicity Stair Lift is a low end model. It does skimp on some luxuries such as power foot rest, and power swivel chair, but it won’t skimp on the safety features. This is one of the most affordable stairlifts currently available on the market.
Minivator Simplicity Plus
Simplicity Plus is an upgraded version of Minivator Simplicity that does feature additional comforts such as automatic power foot rest and power swivel chair. This will make it easier, perhaps even safer, to exit the chair at the top of the stairs. On top of that, multiple color options for the upholstery are available to match your interior design.
The Minivator 1000 is another, more recent straight stairlift model. It comes in several colors, and with optional power foot rest and power swivel chair.
This is the Minivator’s curved stairlift option. Its twin-rail system will allow it to be installed on narrow stairs with multiple hard bends without any problem. The Minivator 2000 comes in any color you choose to match your house interior. The power swivel chair and the power foot rest are available as well.
Minivator 1000 Outdoor
This is a weatherized version of the Minivator 1000. As Minivator 1000 already comes with an aluminum rail, it only takes a protective cover to make it an outdoor stairlift.
When you just need a straight stairlift but your stairs are very narrow, then Minivator Perch is a good option. Instead of sitting, you will be perched throughout the ride. The belt will still be used and you will be able to use a special rail to hold on to during the ride.
