Stairlifts - Minivator

Minivator are a Midlands based manufacturer of stairlifts. Formerly owned by the Sunrise Medical group, a recent management buy out saw the company take a more focused direction in the stairlift market place.

There are two models available, the Minivator 1000 for straight stairs and the Minivator 2000 for curved staircases. Both stair lifts are compliant with BS5776 and ISO9386-2.

The Minivator 2000 is now available with an internal bend as well as an external bend allowing the stairlift to be installed in the majority of homes with curved stairs. One of the major benefits of the Minivator 2000 is the speed of production. It is usually possible to have the lift installed within three weeks from the date that we order it. The lift is also much cheaper than many of its curved stair rivals making it a serious conteder to the Stannah 260 which is widely thought to be the best curved stair lift on the market. Whether it can consistently match the 260 reliability wise remains to be seen, but they are certainly moving towards that.

The Minivator 1000 is a slimline stairlift with all of the usual options that you'd expect from a straight stairlift. One of the best features, which is unique to the Minivator product, is the excellent toggle switch control. People with limited mobility or with painful conditions such as arthritis find it much easier to us the Minivator toggle.
