  • As a result of the customization, straight
    stairlifts cost considerably less than curved
  • A straight stairlift installed starts at roughly

    and increase with the complexity of
  • the stairs.

  • A stair lift like this one features a diagnostic
    light set that allows you to troubleshoot at
    home- for example, if you did not park the chair
    at the bottom where the charging station is

  • Although a stairlift is an easy solution, it is
    not ideal if you use a wheelchair or mobility
    device and youre not steady enough to easily
    transfer to the seat.
  • Wheelchair lifts, porch lifts and home elevators
    are safer options.

Most lifts possess a remote control to call the
unit from another level, an obstruction sensor
that stops the chair from running anything over,
a retractable seat belt, pivoting chair and
overspeed governor to make sure the chair
descends at the correct speed.

Reclaiming your independence takes very little
time a straight stairlift can be installed in a
few hours, a curved stairlift will take roughly
one or two days depending on the complexity.

The lifts run on batteries and are able to
operate during power outages. The battery is
charged automatically on the rail. As a result
close proximity to an electrical outlet is
required and you may need an electrician to
install one nearby.
