A stairlift is a wonderful solution for those who find stairs a challenge but do not use a wheelchair or other mobility aid. Stairs are often the first obstacle that needs to be overcome as we age, and for many can present the risk of falls. A stairlift can offer peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
Stairlifts have seats that fold down for a user to get on and ride, and then fold up when not in use to allow access to the stairs. They are available in two basic types:
Straight stairlifts are for use on a single run of straight stairs, and are a quick, simple and inexpensive way to make a home – or in some cases a commercial space – more accessible.
Curved stairlifts are custom made and designed for use on stairs with curves or intermediate landings. They are also a good choice if you want to be able to park the chair around a corner, out of the way.
