If you rely on a wheelchair, power chair, mobility scooter or other mobility device to get around, you already know about the difficulties that can prevent you from being able to easily access some places inside and outside your home. Staircases in your home mean you have to either struggle up the stairs by yourself or have someone help you whenever you use them. And trying to take your mobility device anywhere can be also be challenging because you may not be able to fit your device in your car, meaning you’ll have to rely on a lightweight, collapsible wheelchair that doesn’t provide you with the comfort you need. On the other hand, there are options to address both of these situations.
If you or a loved one must use the stairs in your home regularly, a stair lift is a much more affordable option than trying to find a new house with rooms on one level. Stair lifts provide you with a smooth, quiet ride to reach your upstairs bedrooms. All you need to do is sit in the chair and relax as the lift glides you up the stairs using its battery powered movement system. Stair lifts are ideal for you if you live by yourself and want to remain independent or if a loved one lives with you and needs continuous assistance to get up and down stairs. Using a stair lift can decrease the strain on your body and theirs, preventing injuries and accidents.
Likewise, a chair lift for your vehicle can make transporting your or a loved one’s mobility device much easier. Whether you’re going across town or hundreds of miles away to visit family or friends, a chair lift stows your mobility device inside or outside your vehicle for a secure ride to your destination. And also like a stair lift, vehicle lifts are very easy to use.
