Abstract

This paper outlines the design and prototyping of a portable stair lift system. The system is able to be quickly assembled and disassembled on any straight set of stairs to assist in transporting heavy objects between floors of multi-level buildings. It is composed of three main parts: rails, cart, and lifting system. Objects to be lifted are secured to the cart which is then pulled up the rails by the modular lifting system.
