This staircase turns into a wheelchair lift in a few seconds. (via @techthatmatters)
Made in Denmark by Liftup A/S, it’s called the FlexStep stairlift. The staircase retracts with the push of a button and turns into a wheelchair lift.
It has an innovative design that can be custom-built to the surroundings and easily integrated into any space with no expensive building work required
FlexStep is easy and safe to use with sensors that detect objects under the lift and between the steps. It also has a vertical safety barrier to prevent rollover.
FlexStep can be installed both indoors or outdoors, with travel height from 240mm to 1250mm and width from 700m to 1000mm. It has a 400kg lifting capacity.
It’s ideal for those using a wheelchair or anyone who just can’t use the stairs. It’s a dignifying solution that empowers individuals to become independent.
