View Full Album On April 25th 2014, FERNO Regional Sales Rep Alex Keen demonstrated their new motorized unit, then our students got hands on training with it. EZ-Glide® with Powertraxx™  Stair Chair from FERNO.   Our students said it was different than the non-motorized units, You have to hold the new ones down to the stairs (So the tracks get a grip on the stairs), the non-motorized, you need to pick them up.
