A straight lift (the Jade model) can be installed within 1 week. Made to measure models with curves need about 6 weeks, a vertical lift 2 – 3 months.

Thanks to our precise preparatory work, our trained installation staff need from 1 to 5 days depending on the model. Stair lifts are normally installed in one day.

Generally, no. The rails of a stair lift are installed either on the stairs themselves, on the wall or even on the ceiling. Installation is possible on the internal or the external side of the staircase. It may even be possible to replace the handrail by the lift. Even doors and passageways are no problem. We always try to find the ideal solution for you and your staircase.

The maximum working load of Högg stair lifts is 120 – 250 kg. Platform lift can carry loads of up to 300 kg and the maximum load of vertical lifts is 500 kg.

Operating the lifts is simple and convenient. Speed is adapted to suit restricted mobility. Manual or automatic swivel seats ensure that getting on or off the lift is easy and trouble-free.

If your new wheel chair has different dimensions or a different shape, we will modify it for you to suit your existing Högg wheel chair system within a few days.

The cheapest model is the “Jade“ straight chair lift. This can be installed for about CHF 7,400.00.
Individually manufactured stair lists vary in length, shape and finish. We can therefore only give you a reliable and binding offer after we have visited the site.
However, it is certain that the cost is several times cheaper than the costs of living in a care home. And what is more, with the aid of an appropriate lift you can live at home in familiar surroundings and increase your quality of life.
