What is a stairlift
You may have heard of stairlifts before or in some cases heard of them referred to as chair lifts. Here we will briefly explain what a stairlift is and how it can help in making your home accessible. Simply put, a stair lift provides a safe and reliable solution for individuals who have difficulty managing stairs. Stairlifts are a battery powered chair mounted to a rail that is used to carry the user up and down stairs. Stair lifts are quiet, comfortable and easy to use. A simple switch moves the chair up and down the track. They can also be operated by a remote control. The track for the lift is installed on the stairs, not on the walls.
