Electric stair lifts also known as stair glides, stairway lifts, chair lifts or stair chairs, provide a cost-effective solution to people with limited mobility, who may find it difficult to negotiate stairs at home. Rather than be forced to renovate an existing home, re-locate to another dwelling or even transfer to an assisted living facility, installing a chair lift for stairs can improve internal and external accessibility for users for a comparatively much lower cost. The option of buying a used or reconditioned electric stair lift is also available and will reduce costs further for customers.
The most popular residential stair lift elevators comprise a motorized track mechanism which is bolted to an existing staircase and has a padded seat attached. Electric powered stair lifts plug into your home's standard power outlet and can be installed on either side of the staircase without any structural changes being made. Although the lift is always connected to a power supply these lifts can either be powered electrically or battery powered with a rechargeable battery which ensures operation in the event of a power failure.
Electric Stair lifts can be used to easily and quietly transport a person, groceries, luggage or even laundry between floors with just a simple press of a button or remote control. Standard features include obstruction sensors, swivel seats with safety belts and platform bases and arm rest that fold out of the way when not in use.
