Thinking of Purchasing one of the Modern Stairlifts on the Market?
Whether you have a stairlift already fitted that is getting past its best or looking to purchase your first one you cannot fail to notice not only the choice that is available these days but also the prices. What you have to remember with a stairlift is that it is an investment in the health of either yourself or a loved one as it means they don’t have to tackle a dangerous staircase when they have mobility problems. Here is a look at some of the current inventive solutions for home stairlift users.
The Great Outdoors
Many do not realise but there are also outdoor stair lifts now available, and while you may wonder why you would need one of these there are quite a few reasons why you would. Many people’s houses and gardens aren’t all on one level, and if you have steps down from your front or back door it can cause problems. These are fully waterproofed so they can withstand whatever the British throws at it, and means that you can still enjoy your garden if your house is on a higher level.
Best for you
Whichever stair lift you think is best for you, shop around and see what styles are available. There is a stair lift for everyone, so nobody needs to be restricted in or around their home due to a staircase.
As widths of staircases vary greatly on the age of the house and the architectural design of, a standard sized stair lift may cause some problems but you can have the seat tailor made to fit the staircase so people can still get past easily while ensuring the seat is still big enough for you to sit on comfortably. You can also choose a seat that fold ups against the wall when not in use, and if you have problems with your arms and legs dangling you can have arm rests and foot rests on your seat too.
We are using style in this context as architectural not aesthetic and there is now a stairlift solution whatever shape you staircase may be. This allows people to remain in their home for much longer as they can navigate the staircase safely as well as giving their families peace of mind that they won’t tumble down the stairs.
