Many Americans experience limited mobility due to age or disability. Climbing and descending stairs may become a challenge, restricting people to the lower levels of their homes. However, many people do not want to leave the homes where they have lived for years and created memories with their families. Installing a home stair lift can help you or a loved one with limited mobility move around freely and enjoy every room of your home.
A stair lift can be attached to either a straight or curved staircase to allow you or a family member to travel to the upper floors of your home. A stair lift attaches to a rail that is connected to the staircase (not the wall) to allow for a smooth ride between floors. A stair lift can negotiate sharp turns and landings between multiple floors. The seat and footrest fold up when not in use so that other family members can easily walk up and down the stairs.
Stair lifts are easy to operate and are powered with rechargeable batteries, so they will continue to work even if there is a power outage. The batteries typically last two to three years. Stair lifts also include standard safety features, such as seatbelts, brakes, footrest sensors, and overspeed governors.
