A simple directional Paddle Switch operates the up and down motion of the stairlift; a switch which is located on an arm of the chair. Stairlifts are mainly operated using a control switch. This is either a joy stick, paddle switch or a toggle type lever. A larger paddle switch enables users even with limited dexterity and mobility or with a painful condition to use stairlifts safely and easily.

 

On stairlifts, for Ease of Use for people who have Arthritis, the up and down motion of the stair lift can be operated by either hand with simple dual paddle switchs located on both arms of the chair seat.
