A handicap chair lift is designed to help you overcome obstacles in your home when your mobility is limited. That’s the literal definition, but it means so much more thban that to our customers. We can tell by the joy we see in our customer’s eyes once they realize they have regained the mobility they used to enjoy in the comfort of their own home.
A handicap chair lift can have various definitions depending on the individual. We sell several different types of chair lifts which all fall under the same category. These include: indoor straight stair lifts, curved stair lifts, straight stair lifts, and even power recliner lift chairs.
Throughout this article we will get you acquainted with the various types of chair lifts on the market so you can decide which one is right for you.
Straight Handicap Chair Lift
Straight chair lifts are typically what you would think of when you think of a chair lift. Essentially it is a motorized chair on rails that’s designed to comfortably move you up and down a straight set of stairs. The straight stair lifts we carry are from industry leading companies: Bruno and Brooks by Acorn. Each have their own sets of features and benefits, so we recommend visiting this page if you’d like more information on straight chair lifts.
Curved Handicap Chair Lift
A curved chair lift is similar in function to a straight chair lift, but it is built to maneuver itself around curved railings. In fact, each one of our curved lifts is custom made to fit the exact dimensions of your staircase. Because the lifts are custom made, please expect a 4-8 week turnaround time after the initial measurements are taken. As with the majority of our lifts, we carry the brands Bruno and Brooks by Acorn, which all come with their own unique set of features and benefits. Please see this page for more information about our curved lifts.
Power Lift Recliner Chairs
Technically falling into the category of handicap chair lifts is the power lift recliner chair. These are designed to help you regain the freedom and independence sitting down and getting up from your favorite chair without it being an obstacle in your life. Power lift recliner chairs ensure you won’t ever again have to worry about mobility when sitting down. Just kick back, relax, and the chair does all the work for you. Please see this page for more information about our power lift chairs.
No matter what chair lift you decide is right for your home, you can expect it to be expertly installed by our factory-trained technicians. For some added peace of mind, our chairs are backed by a manufacturer’s warranty, so you can expect to have a place in your home for a long time to come.
