Why Consider a Stairlift?

By considering a stairlift prior to any accident on the stairs, you’re protecting yourself from potential injury and future limitations – and could be saving money on potential medical bills from falls. Did you know that about 36 million adults fall each year, resulting in more than 32,000 deaths?

Others Who May be Stairlift Candidates:

There are also those who are fully capable of maneuvering around the home either on their own or with a mobility device but are limited to one floor due to mobility restrictions. The following may feel inclined to consider a stairlift due to difficulties with balance, muscle weakness, recovery, or irreparable injury:

  • Someone who uses a scooter or wheelchair and can safely transfer from their mobility device to the chair lift
  • Someone who uses a walker or cane

The following may also benefit from having a stairlift installed:

  • Those recovering from surgery (including amputations and joint replacements)
  • Those suffering from neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or vertigo
  • Someone suffering from Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
