Everyone wants to be able to move about their homes easily and independently. So why should the expectations of the elderly be any different?
With Vimec’s Dolce Vita model chair stairlift, reaching the second floor of the home is child’s play, thanks to its extraordinary ease of use.
The ergonomic joystick on the armrest allows the chair to be moved in both directions: all it takes is a simple gesture!
The chair is also equipped with a red button just below the joystick: this control allows the chair to be stopped at the desired point in the event that the user should choose to stop its movement before reaching the destination floor.
And if the stairlift is used by someone else, it can be easily called back to the desired floor thanks to the easy-to-use radio controls and the infrared remote control.
The convenient and easy to use DolceVita model chair stairlift is the perfect solution for complete freedom of movement!

One of the questions that we hear most often from new customers regards the price of a new stairlift (such as the Vimec Dolce Vita stairlift) and the reason the price isn’t specified in the catalogue or on the website.
The answer is simple: it’s not possible to provide a single fixed price for the installation of a stairlift.
All of Vimec’s systems are made to measure in order to meet the specific needs of their buyers and their installation environments. Every stairlift installed is unique, and the cost therefore changes based on various factors:
Type and length of the staircase: it is important to and determine the side of the staircase upon which it needs to be installed, as well as the length of the run, the number of curves, and any intermediate stops required;
The most suitable model: since each customer has different requirements, it is necessary to identify the most suitable stairlift by taking all of their particular needs into account;
The living environment: in addition to eliminating the problem of overcoming the stairs within the home, a stairlift must also have characteristics and finishes that allow it to be perfectly integrated within the surrounding living environment. Your Vimec consultant will be able to determine the best solution for your home.
Special installations: not all staircases are suitable for installing a stairlift, and, in certain cases, it is necessary to come up with ad hoc solutions in order to achieve this goal.
All it takes is a free, no-commitment, on-site inspection by a technical consultant to evaluate the type of staircase to be overcome, and the most suitable stairlift model to be installed.
The consultant will also provide you with a detailed illustration of how Vimec will create a solution tailored to your needs, complete with all the customisation possibilities, in order to meet all of your requirements, even in terms of pricing.
The home reflects the tastes of its inhabitants… of those who have chosen it as the place to love and nurture their family; over the course of the years it’s embellished, maintained, enriched with memories and keepsakes, or carefully selected furnishings.
That’s why the installation of a lifting system (whether a chair stairlift or a homelift) is an important step, as it changes the layout and the contours of the home, even from an aesthetic standpoint.
It’s an element that will enrich the home and improve the lives of all of its inhabitants with greater comfort and accessibility, while at the same time remaining in perfect harmony with the style of the house itself, and with the tastes of those who live there.
Vimec has designed and created the Dolce Vita chair stairlift in such a way that it can be harmoniously inserted within any kind of environment, from the most traditional to the most modern. In fact, the available customisations allow the chair stairlift to blend in as much as possible with the existing décor, or, conversely, to make it a focal point, while nevertheless remaining consistent with the style of the surroundings.
With three different seat colours available and a guide rail that can be customised with any colour from the RAL range, the Dolce Vita chair stairlift can be prepared based on the specific tastes and preferences of the customer.
Three different installations of the Vimec Dolce Vita model, each with different customisations, in order to create elegant, refined, and accessible environments, complete with all the comfort and practicality typical of Vimec stairlifts.
An ivory coloured seat and guide rail allow the chair stairlift to completely blend in to the staircase; the contours of the guide rail simultaneously follow and become part of the staircase’s banister, thus resulting in an elegant and refined style.
The guide rail features a lively colour tone, as requested by the customer, in such a way as to bring out the wood tones of the staircase itself; the brown seat is particularly elegant, and goes well with the rest of the furnishings.
Made in Italy, for growth: manufacturing in Italy, at its own facilities in Luzzara, allows Vimec to improve its quality, while at the same time reducing costs through continuous innovation and the constant expansion of its product range.
This commitment has borne excellent results with the creation of the Vimec Dolce Vita chair stairlift, a successful product that boasts nearly 1,000 installations throughout Italy thanks to its unique characteristics: it’s even capable of overcoming tracts of up to 40 metres, and its meticulous and modern design renders it a beautiful addition to any interior.
In the wake of the success of its Dolce Vita model, as of January, Vimec resumed manufacturing its mobile stairclimbers in Italy, an activity that had been outsourced to China for nearly 10 years, with a production value of approximately 3 thousand units annually, amounting to 7% of the company’s turnover.
The announcement was made by Vimec’s CEO, Giuseppe Lupo, during a press conference held at the Luzzara facility, which was attended by the mayor and journalists from the industry’s leading publications.
“We don’t only want to be leaders in terms of sales,” Lupo continued,“and we are therefore focusing upon the technical aspects and innovation, as well as customer service and after sales support: we invest almost € 1 million in these services each year, in order to ensure a constant presence all over Italy, with technicians located throughout the entire country.”
This line is now manufactured at the Luzzara facilities, thus allowing the company not only to reduce its costs, but also to make design changes aimed at improving the quality of the stairclimbers themselves, which was previously difficult to accomplish with production being carried out overseas.
The benefits of this decision also extend to the area of Luzzara: the production of this line has led to the recruitment of 6 permanent workers and Vimec’s collaboration with local companies. In fact, the materials are now purchased from local suppliers, with packaging costs that practically amount to nothing.
Manufacturing in Italy also reduces the waiting times for the delivery of the T09 Roby mobile stairclimbers, which is an extremely important aspect for customers to consider when choosing the lifting system that’s best for them.
Customer awareness, innovation, and ongoing research are the guiding principles that allow Vimec to continuously improve the services offered to its customers.
After having pre-announced its publication last week, Vimec is now happy to invite you to visit the website dedicated to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
The website, which can be viewed at olympics.vimec.biz, was created in honour of the Olympics, but is also intended to be a starting point for developing and reinforcing the company’s relationships with its dealers worldwide.
Because our partners are the driving force behind our success. Ours is a teamwork that has endured for more than 30 years, and must be preserved, reinforced, and expanded. To move forward together, overcoming every barrier and obstacle: this is our goal.
Because Sochi 2014 is the gold metal around the neck of the team made up of Vimec and its dealers. At the Olympic Village, accessibility will be ensured by over 370 Vimec installations.
Guaranteeing the accessibility of public places for people with limited mobility is essential for promoting “tourism accessible to everyone.”
Vimec is committed to offering custom solutions for improving the accessibility of public places, like hotels, restaurants, agritourism structures, and more. Platform stairlift, platform lifts, and mobile stair climbers are all systems suitable for ensuring freedom of access to any type of public building.
Vimec’s solutions are capable of perfectly meeting the aesthetic requirements of the staircase, as well as the surrounding environment. This is evidenced by Vimec’s thousands of installations in various public locales throughout Italy.

Accessibility at condominiums is often difficult due to the presence of staircases or the absence of lifts in order to allow people with disabilities to reach the building’s various apartments.
It is often necessary to overcome several outdoor steps in order to reach the entry, and people with disabilities are often unable to do this independently and without considerable difficulty. In some cases, the structure of the condominium itself precludes the possibility of installing a lift in order to reach the various floors of the building.
Vimec’s platform stairlift’s are specially designed to resolve every type of accessibility problem in all kinds of condominiums, whether for accessing the building’s entrance or overcoming the flights of stairs between the various floors.
The two different models available are designed to be installed on various types of staircases: the V64 is suitable for straight staircases, while the V65 is equipped with a curved guide rail.
Both models have characteristics and features that make them perfect for any type of installation:
they can be installed both indoors and outdoors, and in the latter case they come complete with a weatherproof tarp;
their compact size and various wall or step anchoring possibilities render them suitable for any type of environment, without diminishing its style or elegance;
they come with removable keys in order to ensure that they will only be used by authorised individuals in possession of an activation key, thus minimising the risk of damage due to vandalism or improper use;
the built-in panel makes the stairlift simple and practical to use: no training is required, and it can even be used by guests with no need for the owner’s assistance.
