    {EXPOSANITA} Stair Climbing Made Simple

    The Italian Antano Group presented its innovative wheelchair stair climbers during the Exposanita international healthcare exhibition, 18-20 May in Bologna. One of the most interesting products was the new version of its LG2004.

    Demos of this tracked stair climber are impressive. The new steering release system makes it easy to attach the wheelchair to the stairlift and the steering column can be raised effortlessly. It offers a maximum speed of 15 stairs per minute.
    The patented operating system allows it to turn easily in tight spaces. Total weight is just 58 kilos and it can carry up to 150 kilos. The engineering allows significant energy savings and longer battery life.
