Simple to Operate

MediTek stairlifts include a host of new features aimed at helping you in your home.


Joystick - the easy to use joystick makes for finger light control

Emergency Holding Switch - For added safety the emergency holding switch will stop the lift instantly once pressed

Infra-Red Remote Controls - Wireless, wall mounted or hand held, infra-red remotes can be used to call and park the lift. The strong infrared sensors provide rapid, secure and uninterrupted control even in strong ambient light
Back Up and Diagnostics

MediTek stairlifts incorporate a number of diagnostic and backup systems to ensure ease of use and peace of mind.

To ensure your stairlift is always ready to use whenever you need it. MediTek stairlifts come with a number of backup features and an easy to read diagnostic display.


Power Back Up - MediTek is almost unique in that the on-board batteries do not rely on charging stations at each end of the track. Instead, the MediTek lift incorporates a charging strip that runs the length of the track to ensure the batteries are constantly charged, no matter where the lift is positioned on the stairs. This ensures your lift will always be available for use, even in the event of a mains power failure.

ICS - Diagnostics - The unique ICS diagnostic display (located in the arm rest) keeps you informed about your lift status, what is happening and what to do if something is wrong. The ICS diagnostic display is one of the reasons the MediTek lift is so cost effective and easy to use. The advanced diagnostics and alphanumeric display provides easy to read instant data on lift functions and service information without the need for a reference book or chart to interpret it.
