Stairclimber design
“The design looks good, clients love it and the functionality is improved. After the first project, we've worked with Studio Rotor on several other projects to our full satisfaction. My compliments!” - Frank Bod - Owner of Special Mobility
Experts in equipment design

Studio Rotor has worked on all kinds of professional equipment design: from a construction lift aid to a rugged, folding rescue stretcher. This makes that we are familiar with the machine directive, standards and other regulation. We’ll help you lower the physical load on operators and improve the quality of their work.

Design for conservative markets

In many industrial environments, there’s a certain bias towards current working methods. You might have already noticed that it is difficult to bring innovation onto the work floor. It’s difficult to break the status quo. With our user research methods, we are able to get clear insights into what operators and other stakeholders need. We use these insights to create industrial equipment that truly matches the operator’s needs.
