ABOUT STAIR LIFTS
Stair Lifts enable the elderly or disabled to ride up and down staircases on a seat which travels along a straight or cured rail. They are normally battery powered, with the battery being re-charged in the parked position. Seats swivel to facilitate entry and exit. Options include remote control, for a carer. Outdoor stair lifts are also available. Perch-type stair lifts can be supplied for those who have difficulty bending their knees.
The leading manufacturers, described below, have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects, including online catalogs, colors and materials, and installation, care and maintenance.
