See the Tolo wheelchair stair climber in action

The Tolo is a comfortable battery-powered wheelchair unit, which enables users to ascend and descend the majority of staircases including spiral, winding and straight stairs as well as door thresholds. Easy to use and versatile, the powered wheelchair will become your partner for overcoming your stair climbing needs.

A trained individual is required during the stair climbing process, which is a straightforward task, completed at the touch of a button. The sophisticated braking function allows for stopping on the stairs safely and securely at any point.  

Its unique drive system enables the user to navigate the wheelchair around the environment unaided, affording independence, increased quality of life and freedom.  

Ultimately, the Tolo wheelchair stair climber offers two functionalities, one being an operator driven stair climbing solution and the other an independent driving system.


This purpose-built machine delivers a more bespoke offering, whereby users can navigate using the joystick controls to overcome architectural barriers.


The seat has many configurations to choose from, such as foldable armrests, headrest and an adjustable footrest, with other lateral support options available.

Stair climbing solution for lift failures and fire evacuations

The  Tolo is an efficient safety solution that can be used during emergency situations, such as  a lift failure or fire evacuation,  when a safe and reliable way to manoeuvre down the stairs is required for those who are disabled or physically impaired. 

If a lift breaks down, it can often take up to two weeks for an engineer to arrive on site to diagnose the fault. To order the part and fix the lift can take even more valuable time. In the interim, vulnerable people are unable to travel comfortably up and down the stairs. 

Stanley experienced this first hand when the manager of  Collinson care home made an enquiry about stair climbers after their lift broke down. The sales team quickly conducted a site survey to explore which options would be most appropriate for the customer, stair size and their budget.

The Tolo was one of the solutions that was recommended to the customer. Several carers were  given training on how to use the Tolo stair climber. Shortly afterwards  the elderly residents were able to be transported up and down the stairs in a smooth and efficient manner. 

Should you experience a faulty lift at your place of work it is your duty of care as an employer to provide an alternative solution. Contact our sales team on 0800 298 2980 to arrange a free site visit where your options can be discussed.
