Stair Lifts For Wheelchair Users

Wheelchair stair lift models and their use of stair lifts are increasingly popular because they help just older people to remain in their own homes and to be able to overcome all stairs thanks to increased mobility. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Johnson & Johnson. But not only elderly people are dependent on this assistance, wheelchair, stairs are often insurmountable, or at least a big challenge. For these individuals, which can move only with difficulty from the wheelchair in an ordinary seat lift, various models were developed specifically, so that also they not by stairs are restricted in their mobility. It depends on it heavily, structural environment of the lift is to be installed. For smaller stairs, found often in the outer area, for example, in the garden or on the doorstep, has offered the possibility of lifting lift. In the stricter sense it relates that when needed not a stair lift, but a small platform, the Wheelchair and wheelchair over a certain height can lift and carry. These models are often found in public places such as train stations, where too little room for wheelchair-accessible ramps. They are accordingly however unsuitable for long stairs because they take up too much space and therefore leave little room, which is usually scarce in the home than in public places.

For this purpose, to choose usually called platform lifts, which, as the name suggests, consist of a platform, which moves along a rail installed on the wall. A small ramp, you go with the wheelchair on the platform where you can lock the vehicle, to provide maximum security. However, some staircases are too narrow for the wide platforms. In particular at acute angles on the stairs can it come to problems. In this case, however, there is an alternative: the suspension lift. The peculiarity of this model is that which seemed off the wall runs, but is mounted on the ceiling. The wheelchair is secured with sturdy ropes and transported via the stairs. This space-saving method can be used even on the narrowest stairs. Dirk STAUDINGER
