It is not always easy for people who are older and those that suffer from mobility related diseases to climb the stairs. Often the stairs are something that is avoided for these people, and for good reason. A fall down the stairs is the leading cause of hospitalization and accidental death among those who are over the age of sixty-five, so it is no wonder that many are wary around the stairs. To improve the ability to independently use the stairs and reduce the risk of injury, a stair lift is commonly installed to the stairs. A stair lift is a mobility lifting aid that quite literally carries a person up and down the stairs. A track is secured to the stairs, then a chair, or in some cases, a platform is sent up and down the track carrying a single rider.
There is a growing, and worrying, trend for home stair lifts to be sold without any installation. The buyer is told that self-installation is easy and can be done by anyone with basic DIY skills. However, AMEA (Accessibility Equipment Manufacturer’s Association) and the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) strongly advise against self-installation of a home stair lift. A reputable stair lift supplier will insist on doing the installation. Also, remember to ask about warranty and after sales service. A reputable dealer will offer both; look for a dealership that offers 24/7 telephone support so that you’ll get instant help when you need it. Here are some brief stair lift reviews of some leading makes.
