PS Universal

transporting people in wheelchairs


The battery powered Hercules PS Universal is a roll-on/roll-off ferry for any make and model of self-propelled wheelchair or sports wheelchair. Reverse with ease onto the platform, secure the height adjustable backrest in place, apply the wheelchair brakes and take off up the stairs. The PS Uni folds away compactly for quick and easy stowage.

The PS Universal is ready to take on all the stair climbing jobs in your day if you rely on a wheelchair for getting around. Whether it is on holiday or visiting friends, attending appointments or shopping or moving freely around your own home, the PS Uni moves smoothly and softly without leaving marks or scratches on floor and stair surfaces.

The battery charge will last for 300 – 500 steps. This depends on the weight of the passenger and whether they are travelling up or down. A quick-change battery pack is recommended for frequent use. An in-transit battery charger is available as an accessory, ensuring your personal stairclimber is ready for action at any time.

This ingenious people carrier is life changing in its applications.
