Handicap lifts or chair lifts can be very liberating and can improve the lifestyle of your relative. Here at UK Stairlifts, we’ve a wide range of handicap chair lifts to choose from. Getting the right handicap stair lift for individual needs is important, though. Here are a few things to bear in mind.
Safety and comfort are a priority when considering stair lifts for those with a handicap. That’s why we need to know if your relative can lift her or himself into the stairlift. If they can’t transfer easily from a wheelchair into the handicap stair lift, they might want to consider buying an elevator. Handicap chair lifts users will also need to be able to hold down the operating button. If they can, and their handicap allows them good control over their upper body, they’ll have no trouble using the stair lift.
So, having decided a handicap stair lift is the way forward, it’s time to choose which is right for your relative’s home. At UK Stairlifts, we’ve a full range of straight and curved handicap stair lifts from top manufacturers such as Acorn and Free lift. If the staircase is not straight, they’ll need a curved, custom-built handicap stairlift. Our professional stairlift installers can create a curved rail that follows the line of the staircase perfectly.
Our stair handicap lifts can even avoid blocking doorways, with a powered hinge track that lets them easily fold the stairlift away. For easier dismounting, we can also fit a track extension on the landing.
