Features and benefits of the Flow X stairlift 

By Bethany Ward on 30th August 2022

In terms of market-leading stairlifts, the Flow X is up there at the top. Using a combination of versatility, elegant design and unique patented safety features, the Flow X is considered to be one of the most popular, comfortable stairlifts on the market.

During your journey up and down the stairs, your seat has automatic swivel and levelling technology (ASL) technology, which makes the Flow X the only stairlift on the market to rotate and stay perfectly level while in motion. This unique feature makes the stairlift capable of fitting on even the narrowest of staircases, whether they are straight, narrow, curved or even spiral. Designed and manufactured using industry-leading technology, the Flow X breaks the mould on traditional stairlift designs. With this in mind, there is a wide range of features and benefits that make the Flow X a market leader in the stairlift industry.

Features and Benefits


Designed and tested to meet and exceed the highest industry standards, the Flow X has ergonomically tapered armrests that give that extra support when you’re standing or sitting. This unique open-access armrest position has made transferring to a stairlift easier than ever before. 


Using the auto-swivel system allows the Flow X to navigate staircases as narrow as 61cm (24 inches) wide whilst auto-swivelling the seat and footrest while it moves. With this design, the stairlift allows the rail to sit close to the stairs, making it the most adaptable stairlift in the world. 


Offering nothing but premium comfort, the ergonomic and innovative features are all designed with you in mind. The backrest and padded seat are specifically designed with a gentle recline which promotes a natural, comfortable seating position. The seat and footrest are height adjustable, allowing you to find the best position to keep you as comfortable as possible while you’re travelling up and down the stairs. 

Aesthetically designed

The Flow X stairlift is more than just a mobility product, it’s designed to be a feature of the home. Choose between a range of contemporary colours for the padded seat and backrest whilst having the option of fabric, vinyl and premium leather. The back of the seat features Grey Oak and the rail comes in 4 standard colours with an option for a custom colour of your design.


Designed with a seatbelt and wrap-around armrests, the Flow X treats your safety as a priority, keeping you comfortable and secure at all times. Various other safety features include an automatic t-safety system and a unique emergency lowering system at the push of a button. There is also an option to include an integrated call device feature so you can connect with family and friends while using the lift. 


The Flow X is supplied with two call-and-park wireless remotes, which can be positioned at the top and bottom of the stairs, allowing multiple users in the same household to call, send or park the stairlift. This stairlift also folds up, which is convenient for keeping the house looking neat and tidy. 

Avoid obstacles

There is a choice of ingenious start and finish rail options that allow you to avoid obstacles, such as doorways, without the need for a mechanical hinged rail.
