No one should ever feel trapped in their homes. But for wheelchair users and other individuals with mobility issues, a home can be a nerve-wracking place. This is especially the case when the home has various levels to it. How is one supposed to get from one floor to the other when he/she is experiencing difficulty with walking? Stairs, as you can imagine, present quite the obstacles. That is, of course, unless your home is equipped with a stair lift.
Home stair lifts are widely recognized as the best solutions for those who wish to stay independent in their own households. These motorized chairs enable those with mobility issues to slowly and safely glide up and down the staircases in their homes. Stair lifts can be mounted on either straight or curved staircases, making it easy to access different levels of homes no matter their staircase designs.
At LifeCare Mobility Solutions, we proudly offer a number of stair lift designs that include the state-of-the-art models provided by Handicare.
“Handicare offers solutions and support to increase the independence of disabled or elderly people, and to enable them to live an active life — on their terms — and to facilitate for their care providers and family,” their website informs us, “ Our offering encompasses a comprehensive range of straight and curved stairlifts, transfer, lifting and repositioning aids, vehicle adaptations and medical equipment.”
We’re happy to say, from our experience with working Handicare, that any and all of our clients who have entrusted their stair lifts to their homes are in very good hands. The Swedish company offers a number of excellent stair lift designs that meet both the accessibility needs and financial constraints of all of their customers.
Among Handicare’s great straight stair lifts are the Simplicity and the Simplicity Plus.
As their names imply, these stair lifts provide sound solutions to accessing various levels of the home without the proverbial bells and whistlrs. The Simplicity provides a very cost-effective solution to overcoming the challenges of straight staircases. The Simplicity Plus comes with the Smart seat and optional powered features.
Among Handicare’s great curved stair lifts are the Vermeer and the Van Gogh.
The Vermeer is Handicare’s multi-storey stair lift. It is specifically designed for multi-storey houses, apartment block stairwells and houses with spiral staircases. “In principle, it is identical to the Rembrandt and Van Gogh in terms of technique, appearance and materials,” says the Handicare website, “Standard with foldable footplate and swivel-seat.”
The Van Gogh is boldly heralded as one of the most popular stair lifts in the world! It “provides a safe, smooth and comfortable ride up even the most complicated of staircases,” Handicare explains, “It consists of a single tubular track, which is less than 8 cm. in diameter. Moreover, the track is available in three standard colors and optional in any RAL colour for an additional charge. It runs almost silently and the most compact design allows plenty of space for other stair users.”
