Curved Stairlifts: Freelift by Handicare

freelift200pxOne of the most popular curved stairlifts in the world! Designed for use on the outside bend of curved staircases.   

The Freelift Van Gogh consists of a single tubular track, which is less than 8cm in diameter, and provides a safe, smooth and comfortable ride up even the most complicated of staircases. The track is available in three standard colours and optional in any RAL colour for an additional charge. It runs almost silently and the compact design allows plenty of space for other stair users.
