The scalamobil S35 stairclimber is one of the key components of the Alber mobility concept. With the scalamobil stairclimber, you can climb any staircase safely and with minimum effort.
When, as a result of injury or disability, you cannot climb stairs by yourself any more, every single step becomes an obstacle: at home, at the surgery, in public buildings or when visiting friends and relatives. With the scalamobil, obstructed paths become free again. No matter whether they are steep, narrow or spiral staircases, whether they are made of wood, stone or carpeted, scalamobil overcomes all types of steps without any problem. Thereby the scalamobil can be operated with very little effort, both simply and safely.
The scalamobil is then attached to this in next to no time. When ascending or descending stairs, the rear wheels of the chair are simply removed or fixed to an additional bracket. The advantage is the wheelchair occupant has no need to transfer out of the chair.
The first impression is the most important. The shape of the ErgoBalance handles on the scalamobil has been designed by specialists to lie ideally in the hand the first time they are used and to ensure simple and safe operation. The cushioned surface at the back of the operating unit together with the user friendly operating switch guarantee that even longer ascents are no problem at all.
The scalamobil comes with patented safety sensors and can, if required, be programmed to adjust to specific features of the stairs. They assist the carer if desired and make the ascent or descent an even safer and, most of all, uniquely gentle ride. This is a particular benefit, not just for wheelchair occupants with back problems.
Every set of stairs is different and there is often very little space. The handles on the scalamobil can be moved in a sideways direction, making it simple to manoeuvre on narrow staircases. Another added benefit is the width and height adjustment of the handles which allows them to adapt ideally to the height of the carer.
A great advantage of the scalamobil is that it can be operated virtually anywhere without any installation being necessary. The practical fast-lock mechanism allows fast dismantling into three portable parts without any fuss at all. With its small dimensions and useful handles it is easily towed away in the boot of a small car.
The rechargeable battery pack, weighing less than 3 kg (6 lb) provides the power necessary for up to 300 steps (approx. 20 floors). The tyres on the climber wheels are made of a special cushioning and abrasion-resistant material that is gentle and no problem for wooden steps.
