Stair Lifts Can Be Your Solution

Stair lifts can be the perfect solution for the elderly and the handicap that have to go up a flight of steps but do not want to leave the home that they love. They can be quickly installed, they are screwed down tight to a few of the stairs, and even people who are wheelchair bound can transfer themselves to the stair lift.

A leading brand, the worlds largest is Stannah stair lifts. Other leading manufacturers are Thyssen Krupp, and Ameriglide Stair lifts. They can be bought New or reconditioned. You can buy them or event rent them, if they are only needed for a short amount of time.

A stair lift, in general is a motorized chair that goes up and down the stairs on a metal track. They are sometimes also referred to as chair lifts or stair glides. Most stair lifts run on battery power (DC power), so there is no danger of electric shock through trailing wires and similar problems. The batteries are rechargeable and have the added advantage that they will continue to work if there is a power interruption. The battery charger is part of the system connected to the electrical system, so when the stair lift is not being used it usually can be recharged. The track is affixed to several stairs by screws, in order to be stable. Also, stair lift controls can be located at the top and the bottom of the stairs, so if the device is at the top of the stairs, it can be called to come to the bottoms of the stairs. When not being used, the stair lift can be folded up to only 14 or 15 inches, while when being used it takes up about 2 feet of space. The lifts come with numerous safety systems to stop the stair lift if something goes wrong. They often come with sensors, which make them stop if there are objects strewn along the path of the stair lift. In general the stair lift is controlled by a hand pressure on the chair which starts and stops it as it gently goes up and down the stairs.

Walking up and down stairs can be very dangerous for disabled people, and one of the leading dangers of falling down and injury in the home. There are different models of stair lifts for straight stairs and also for curved and narrow stairs.
