The Roby powered stair climber allows an operator to move a person in a wheelchair up and down stairs using a motorized traction control system. The Roby is well-suited as an emergency evacuation system for buildings such as schools, banquet halls and other public buildings.
Battery powered and portable, the Roby can be used when there is no elevator or lift, or when an elevator or lift cannot be used. After securely fastening the wheelchair to the Roby with its easy-clip system, the operator guides the Roby up or down the stairs. The tracking system grips the stairs to ensure a solid contact and moves along each stair with smooth and quiet operation. The passenger remains in a natural upright position. The Roby can be used on stairs up to a 35 degree angle and can be used indoors and outdoors.
