Here are a couple key things ADL specialist suggests you look at if you are trying to decide on a stair lift.
Stair lifts is a perfect solution for anyone with mobility issues and have trouble going up and down stairs. A stair lift can carry an individual up and down the stairs while sitting in a seated position. But with so many lift options on the market how do you make a decision that best meets your needs and budget. Here are a couple useful tips for when you start looking for a stair lift.
There are two stair lift styles straight and curved. Depending on the type of stairs you have you will have one of these types of styles.
A straight stair lift moves in a straight line up a flight of stairs with no interruptions by bends or curves and landings, the average cost can be between $3,000 and $6,000. Curved stair lifts are much more intricate in design they have the ability go around corners, and can change direction. Curved lifts are much more costly and typically running between $10,000 and $15,000 or more depending on the complexity of the design.
If a larger person needs a lift most companies offer a heavy-duty lift that comes with a higher weight capacity and larger chair. If the individual is tall call the companies and see if the offer a seat height adjustment to accommodate longer legs.
Most stair lifts seats come with armrests and footplates (footrest) that fold up out of the way. Some seats even have a swivel option that makes getting into and out of the chair easier. They also come with rocker-switch or push button controls found on the armrest. And "call send" controls which allow you to call or send the unit to the other end of the stairs. When purchasing make sure the lift you choose has all these features.
Lastly depending on the manufacture, you may also have the option of choosing between a batteries powered (DC) or a electric (AC) stair lift. Battery powered units charge at the base station and run smoother and quieter than electric lifts, and will work even if there's a power failure in the home.
