The AmeriGlide Vesta boasts a durable rack and pinion design that delivers smooth, safe transit up and down your stairway and requires minimal maintenance on your part. Backed by industry-leading warranty coverage and designed to meet applicable safety standards for private users in the United States and most public applications*, the AmeriGlide Vesta represents a new generation of stair lifts that will enable mobility-impaired homeowners to continue aging in place and retain their independence in multi-level houses for years to come!

A Smooth, Safe Ride - Every Time You Use It. The AmeriGlide Vesta's rack and pinion drive system delivers reliable, unobtrusive transit up and down your stairs, and the shock-absorbent seat assembly and back rest are comfortably padded. The constant-pressure rocker switch that operates the Vesta stair lift must be depressed for a full three seconds before the unit moves, giving you plenty of time to steady yourself and preventing rocky, jarring starts and stops. The swiveling seat and armrests on the Vesta also flip up for easy transfer into the stair lift chair from a wheelchair or scooter.
Battery Powered Drive System Ensures Safe, Secure Operation. The AmeriGlide Vesta is powered by a rechargeable DC battery which draws power constantly as it moves along the stair lift's track. The battery keeps an energy reserve that allows the Vesta stair lift to continue operating for a limited number of trips even in the event of a power outage, ensuring that you can get to a safe location if you need to leave your home in an emergency situation. The lower voltage of the DC battery also reduces the likelihood of an electrical hazard. Depending on frequency of use, the DC battery will need to be replaced every 1 to 2 years.
Minimal Maintenance Is Required. In your owner's manual, you'll find a handy schedule of maintenance that will guide you through the necessary steps for keeping your AmeriGlide Vesta running smoothly and safely for years to come. The most labor-intensive duty required is lubricating the rack and rollers - that's pretty much it! If you experience any other problems, our technicians can assist you personally - just contact us directly and we'll arrange for a maintenance professional to come to your home (this may incur a service charge, but all component parts except for the battery are covered for 5 years, and your drive train is warrantied against defects for 10 years!).
Designed With Your Safety In Mind. Multiple fail safes are built into the AmeriGlide Vesta stair lift ensure that the unit is safe for both you and your housemates, pets, and visitors. The Vesta will not operate unless the seat is locked in the side-facing transit position (parallel to the wall). The unit will operate without the seat belt being fastened, but we strongly suggest that you never operate the Vesta or any other stair lift without using a safety belt. Upper and lower limit switches ensure that the Vesta comes to a safe, full stop at the top and bottom of the stairway, and sensors in the footrest and carriage automatically stop the stair lift if an obstruction is detected, allowing you to back up and clear the Vesta's path of transit. You can also fold up the seat when not using the Vesta, and the unit will only take up 14 inches of space on the stairway, allowing foot traffic to bypass the unit without tripping over components or having to squeeze by it.
