A Battery Power operated stair lift. The upward and downward movement begins smoothly and slowly, without jarring or sudden stops.
 

Over the years there were several diverse ways and approaches to transfer and drive the stairlift carriage up and down the rail track, from noisy and oily chain driven mechanisms to wire rope or cable wrapping around winch drums.

 

These outdated mechanisms are still available today. All of these are now obsolete apart from the modern Rack & Pinion Drive System which produces a very smooth start and safe stop stairlift ride action and operation.
