Important Key Features of the MediTek E120 Essential Stair Lift

Joystick Control

The easy-to-use joystick offers finger light control. Just push the joystick to the left or right, to move the lift in the direction of travel you want to go.

Call and Send Units

In addition to the joystick, you can also move your stair lift using one of the two call-and-send units we supply with all of our stairlifts.

Manual Swivel Lever

Your Manual Swivel Lever allows you to rotate the chair to face the top of the stairs, to ensure a safe departure from the lift upstairs.

ICS Diagnostic Display

The new Intelligent Control and Diagnostic System (ICS) innovative display provides instant operational information on the stairlift functions, the current status of the stair lift and when a service is due. Your ICS is a truly remarkable technology for both you as a user and our technicians.

  • Lap Belt.
  • Retractable (automatic).
  • Harness.

Continuous Charging Strip

The Continuous Charging Strip (CCS) runs along the length of the rail making sure that the batteries are constantly being charged. So no matter where you park the chair on the stairs your lift is always available for use - even in the event of a mains power failure.

Telescopic Seat Post

The E120 Essential seat posts can be adjusted to ensure the stairlift chair is set just right for your personal requirements.

Safety Features: Essential

Pressure-Sensitive Surfaces

Located on the footrest and the carriage, pressure sensitive surfaces stop the stairlift when they sense any obstruction in their path.

Emergency Holding Button

For added safety, an emergency holding button is supplied to stop the stair lift instantly when pressed.

Electromagnetic Brake

The E120 Essential braking system is linked to the stairlift motor and gearbox and ensures the stairlift remains parked when stopped.

Barrier Arm

As an additional safety feature, MediTek stair lifts do not operate unless the down-side arm is down and in place.

Key Switch

A key switch is fitted to every stairlift to enable you to switch the power to the stairlift on and off.

Using your MediTek E120 Essential Stairlift Is Easy

The MediTek E120 Essential stairlift is designed to make your life easier and helps you to reclaim your independence.

Using Your MediTek Stairlift Step-By-Step Guide

  1. Bring the seat, base, arms, and footrest down into position, and your stairlift is then ready to use.
  2. Sit down on your MediTek stairlift, then fasten your seat belt to stay secure in your chair.
  3. To use your stair lift, simply move your joystick in the direction you wish to travel, and your stairlift carries out your wishes.
  4. When you arrive at the top of the stairs, you can use your manual swivel lever to swivel your chair on to the landing. If you are using the powered swivel, simply keep hold of your control to move your chair on to the landing area.
  5. After you have undone your seat belt, you can safely move away from your stairlift. When you are not using your stairlift, you can either keep it rotated to form a barrier, at the top or bottom of your stairs, or, to make space for other stair users, simply fold up your chair neatly.
