We'd like to get a chairlift for a Shabbos guest who may stay in our basement and wouldn't be able to climb the stairs.

Since it will be used almost always only on Shabbos, I'm assuming we'd need it to go up and down automatically, like every 15-20 minutes, like a Shabbos elevator.

Does anyone have experience with this?? Any leads or suggestions on who to call?

The Zomet Institute in Israel specializes in stuff like this. Here is their page on stair lifts: Shabbat stair lift

And here is their English web home page: The Zomet Institute

Thanks, Rubber Ducky. I'm in Flatbush, but it looks like a good place for me to start. Maybe they have distributors here.

Despite posting at 2AM, I'm in Baltimore. Zomet developed an electric Shabbat wheelchair with Amigo, a wheelchair/scooter manufacturer, a few years ago, which I recalled reading about. Have hatzlacha!
