If you are looking for a device to take care of a loved one at home or someone needs assistance due to rehab most likely you have heard of stair lifts, stair chairs, chair lifts, wheelchair lifts, power stair chair climber and mobile stair lifts. So, what are the differences and are you adequately assessing everyone’s needs?
Stair lifts and stair chairs
A person with a mobility impairment sits on a seat that uses a rail(s) to transport them down the stairs. These work especially well for people who use mobility aids such as walking frames but are limited as they are fixed to one place in the home and can take up more space then necessary. These are permanent and, in some cases, will require building permission or if you are renting you must have approval by the owner which is rarely given. Price wise they are very expensive and will vary on how many flights of stairs, how many landings and if they are spiral with an average cost of $10,000.00 and you still need to move them out of the residence once they get downstairs.
These mobility aids/devices are different to stairlifts, they are a platform that is designed to carry a wheelchair up/down a level while the person remains seated in their wheelchair, they are usually found in commercial buildings vs stair lifts which are more common in residential homes.
