Products: Savaria Stairfriend Curved Stairlift

Whether it's a bend, a middle landing, or you just want to stop it out of the way of the stairs, a straight stairlift sometimes just won't work. Savaria now has a solution! Custom fit to your stairs, this battery operated lift can do all that, and more.  

The Stairfriend can tackle nearly any set of stairs!

Smooth riding, comfortable and reliable, the Savaria Stairfriend features a double rail system for strength and durability. The lift is easy to operate with controls on the armrest as well as two included radio frequency remote controls. It even offers two different seat designs to fit your taste. 


With industry leading computer aided design technology, Savaria transforms a few pictures of your stairs into a custom bent rail, fit to your exact specifications. This results in not only fewer trips to measure and install, more reliability, and a better fitting lift, but it also means an industry leading speed from the time you call to when you're riding your new lift.
