The stair lift drive developed by Framo Morat actually consists of a total of three drives: the main drive for the lifts upward and downward movements, one for swiveling the seat (making it easy to get on and off), and a drive for tilt correction so that the seating Stair lift drive systemposition is always horizontal despite differing gradients within a stair section.

Worm gear for rehabilitation technology
Two worm gear units have been built into a shoulder motion rail: one raises and lowers the patients arm; the other carries out a rotational movement of the shoulder. This generates a movement corresponding to the natural pattern for the shoulder. Maximum accuracy is required for post-operative movement of the shoulder, which is moved over the top dead center. Too great a gear backlash can be painful for the patient so our gears are produced with a total play of less than 1.5°.
A three-stage spur gear was developed for a stair-climbing aid. The Stair Climber can easily be attached to a conventional wheelchair so that persons weighing up to 160 kg can be transported up and down stairs. Particular attention was given to the quality of the gear components because of the extremely high demands made of the drive regarding performance and quiet running. Framo Morat won the contract to supply the drives because of the high quality we were able to guarantee.
Since the founding of Franz Morat GmbH in 1912, gear and drive engineering has been in a continuous state of development at the companys headquarters in Eisenbach. Framo Morat, with subsidiaries in the United States, Turkey and Poland as well as a worldwide network of sales partners, is a globally operating manufacturer of high-quality drive solutions for many industries.
