The first Brooks stairlift was designed by Frederick Brooks, an engineer, back in 1972. He designed it for his wife, who was starting to struggle with the stairs due to rheumatoid arthritis.
Brooks only offer one model of stairlift, the Lincoln, which is designed for straight stairs. The Lincoln is designed to be simple to use, reliable and safe. It is easy to fit directly to the stair treads, not the wall, so it can be installed with minimal mess or disruption.
