A Chair Lift allows you to rediscover your home; because you are no longer restricted to one floor level of your home.


Stair Lifts can allow elderly people and younger people with mobility problems to have a greater degree of independence and to stay in their own homes much longer; as they make it much easier for people to travel between the different levels of their home. 


Though once, it may well have been a chore to walk up or down stairs or to go to the bathroom or to go up to bed, life can be much easier and much more relaxing once a chair lift has been installed. Chair lifts are very comfortable to ride, easy to use and are reliable and versatile.
The user controls a directional Paddle Switch or control switch located on the armrests to easily operate and ride the stairlift up and down the stairs. The seat is wide and deep enough for the average person to sit in comfortably and the chair lift speed is set within Safety standards. 


The chair lift fits on almost any staircase and can fit on the narrowest of staircases. The stair lift folds compactly to leave space for other staircase users and does not hinder normal stair use.
There are many chair lift options to adapt to suit your personal needs along with Ease of Use features, Stairlifts are also available in a range of colors to match your décor.


A Remote Control can ‘call’ or ‘send’ the lift from the top or bottom of the stairs to you or another person at the top or bottom of the staircase.
You must be able to sit safely on the seat during the journey and transfer on and off of the chair lift at the top and bottom of the stairs, sometimes with the assistance of a caregiver. A Swivel Seat and lift up armrests and footrest will help make getting onto and off of the chair seat much easier. Fold-up Design stairlifts have a fold-up seat, arm rests & footrest. When not in use, the seat, arms and footrest of the stairlift can be folded away to provide easy access to the stairway.


Walking sticks or canes may be carried on the stair lift, but if you use a larger walking aid frame, it is advisable to have two walking aid frames in the home, one to be used on the first floor at the bottom of the stairs and another at the top of the stairs.
