Industrial design of a single rail stairlift

Industrial design of a single rail stairlift
Red Dot Design Award

New reality for babyboomers

We designed and developed the Otolift ONE, a stairlift that enables elderly to live independently.

The revolutionary chair travels on a single tube. This design allows the stairlift to be used in narrow and steep staircases.

Advanced leveling system
From start to finish

Advanced leveling system

From start to finish

The mechanical principle we developed for this single rail stairlift is unique, innovative and therefore protected by several patents. The leveling of the chair is controlled with an advanced system that features a unique combination of hardware and software that is unprecedented in its kind.

The development process was extensive and thorough. In close cooperation with the client and Hedon Electronics we were responsible for concept development, ergonomics, styling, engineering (including calculations and FEM analyses) and prototyping. We also took care of sourcing, project management and management of IP-rights.

Fitting in every interior

Impact of design

The design of the new single rail stairlift is elegant, modern and modest; this makes it an addition to any household. With different upholstery options the stairlift can be personalized. The design and the user experience perfectly communicate the Otolift brand values: safety, quality, comfort and flexibility.

The use of a single tube rail and the compact construction of the stairlift itself ensure that the stairs remain perfectly usable for other people.

The non-stigmatizing chairlift enables elderly to live independently in their own house longer, a wish shared by the majority of people. At the same time this helps to reduce the costs of public health care. A win-win situation!

An increasing demand for the Otolift ONE in Europe and the United States strengthens the market position of Otolift worldwide. This illustrates the impact of good design.
