What is a Stairlift?
A stairlift is a mechanical device with a chair or platform that will lift people up and down a stairs. A rail is securely mounted to the stairs and a chair or lifting platform is attached to the rail. A person gets onto the chair or platform and is lifted up or down the stairs by the chair which moves along the rail. If there is an obstacle or door at the top or bottom of the staircase, various options are available such as folding or sliding rails, which after getting you safely up or down the stairs, will retract or fold away. If you have a curved of layered staircase, bespoke curved staircases are available to cater for the non-standard staircases.
Stair lifts are known variously as stair lifts, stair-lifts, chair lifts, stair gliders and by other names. This type of chair lift should not be confused with the chairlift used by skiers. The term stair climber can refer either to stair lifts, or more commonly to the exercise equipment by the same name.
Some of the first stair lifts to be produced commercially were advertised and sold in the U.S. in the 1930s by the Inclinator Company of America. Many users at the time were victims of polio.
Now they are seen for use in elderly, fall-prone individuals, and the disabled who are unable to navigate stairs safely.
