The history of Brooks Stairlifts

In 1972 Mr Frederick Brooks’ wife Grace started to struggle with their stairs due to her rheumatoid arthritis. Using his background and experience as an engineer Mr Brooks decided to design a stairlift for her. The invention attracted much attention and word soon spread of Britain’s first stairlift. It wasn’t long before people with mobility difficulties and even health professionals from all over Britain were calling on Fred Brooks to commission their own stairlifts.

In 1973, the Fred Brooks Stairlift Company was formed in Camberley, Surrey.
