Are Home Lifts Safer than Stairlifts
You may be considering all your options before deciding on the best mobility product for your home, in this article we discuss the differences between stairlifts and domestic home lifts to ensure you choose the option that is safest and suited to your home.
Keeping the stairs accessible for all
There are lots of benifits to installing a stairlift in the home, however, for some this may not be the best solution, a domestic home lift goes through the floors, and can also be used for multiple users.
A stairlift can be a difficult installation which in some cases can look unattractive, but can also get in the way of the top and bottom of the stairs, making it a hazard.
If you live in a multiple household then a stairlift can become a problem, as When someone is actually using the stairlift other people cannot use the stairs, until the the device has safely reached its destination, otherwise causing quite a danger on an already hazardous part of the house.
Wheelchair Users and Stairifts / Homelifts
A considerable benefit of some of the home lifts on offer is that they are large enough to take a wheelchair and multiple users. For wheelchair users this means a much smoother and easier journey around the home. The alternative is that if a wheelchair user only had the option of a stairlift, getting on and off and moving the wheelchair itself would be dangerous and unworkable maneuver from wheelchair to stairlift seat, and then back again at the top and bottom of the stairs.
Modern home lifts are designed and built with safety in mind and contain a series of sensors and mechanisms to ensure that they run as safely and smoothly as possible, all of our homelifts are thoroughly tested to ensure they are at the highest of safety standards before they are ready for the customer.
Maintain your independence
Depending on your level of mobility, users of the stairlift can require help from others whether that be their partner, a relative, a friend or a carer getting on and off the device. However, domestic lifts can be used by one user on their own, giving complete control to move from floor to floor in their home whenever they reuire.
