The new powered footrest upgrades both the comfort and safety of the Handicare Elegance and Alliance seat. It makes it much easier to sit down or stand up and allows you to raise and lower the footrest automatically while seated, using the switch in the seat arm. Moreover, the unique LED lighting illuminates the footrest at night, making it safer for other users of the stairs.
Stylishly illuminated footrest for your safety
The unique lighting feature illuminates the top surface of the unfolded footrest, improving the visibility in the dark. The LED light switches on automatically when the footrest is unfolded. This safety feature prevents you or other stair users from stumbling over the unfolded footrest in the dark.
Easy to use
For easy access the footrest switch is located on the left or right hand armrest, adjacent to the joystick. The powered option is available for all standard and offset footrests. These are fitted with safety sensors that will directly stop the movement of the footrest when it encounters an obstruction. The movement will continue when the obstacle, e.g. your shoe, is out of the way. Although the powered footrest has an automated folding mechanism for your convenience, the footrest can still be operated manually by simply lifting it up or pushing it down when required.
