or Remote Control Operation
Control of your MediTek stairlift can
be effected either by use of a simple, user-friendly joystick located
in the arm of your choice, or alternatively the stairlift can be controlled
remotely by means of an infra-red hand-held transmitter that requires
no unsightly control boxes or cables.
The MediTek stairlift contains electronic circuits
to control the ride, this means that there is no jolting or lurching
of the stairlift as it starts or ends its travel. This gives a smooth
ride throughout, adding to the feeling of safety and stability.
Stairlifts with Swivel Seat
The MediTek 140 stairlift has a swivel
seat, this locks in three positions, forward for normal travel and
either 45 or 85 degrees to make mounting and dismounting from the
stairlift easy and safe. The stairlift will not operate unless the
seat is in the forward position this ensures your safety.
The seat base, footrest and arm rests of the
MediTek 140 fold up to ensure that the stairlift is compact when not
in use, ensuring minimum intrusion in to the staircase.
Touch Sensitive Safety Covers
As standard the MediTek 140 comes complete
with touch sensitive safety covers which are designed to prevent trapping
hazards. Should the stairlift make contact with any obstruction on
the stairwell, in either direction, movement of the covers will result
in the immediate suspension of travel in that direction. The stairlift
will still travel in the opposite direction to allow the obstruction
to be removed.
