For many of us, things like getting in and out of vehicles and climbing stairs are such simple tasks that we don’t even think about them. But for a motor scooter or wheelchair user, these can all become very difficult, making it hard to ever leave the house.
Luckily, with new technology, there is a way to take the worry out of getting around in a wheelchair, thanks to the invention of the stair lift and chair lift.
What is a stair lift?
A stair lift is a chair that attaches to the stairs. Following a track, it allows a user to ride up to the top of the staircase, never having to use his or her legs to get to the second floor of the home.
What is a chair lift, or platform lift?
A chair lift moves a chair, acting like a platform lift along a track. The platform of the wheelchair lift is equipped with safety technology to secure the user, and has the ability to raise the platform to just the right height for the user to access the raised area.
What are the benefits of having a lift in my home?
Lifts make life much easier for disabled or aging individuals. Installing a stair or wheelchair lift on your personal property will:
- Help take the pressure off of worn-out joints and body parts, such as knees, ankles and hips.
- Allow a wheelchair-bound individual more of the independence he or she craves.
- Help the user save time getting to areas that were previously difficult to reach.
- Allow for more options when purchasing a home.
