Here’s hoping you’re enjoying your 2020 so far! With the new decade now more than two weeks old, many of us are anticipating news of the latest innovations. After all, technology seems to update at such rapid speeds, these days. Then again, there are some technological advances that don’t need much by way of change. If you ask the team, here at LifeCare Mobility Solutions, stair lifts are among those advances.
Now, we’re not saying there’s no room for improvement in any of the mobility solutions that have been invented thus far. However, we are saying that we’re not sure just how much better the quality of our stair lifts can get. With manufacturers like Bruno and Handicare taking on the duties of creating the stair lifts we offer, we know we’re already working with the best in the business!
Do you have a loved one living in your home who could make use of a stair lift?
Stair lifts aren’t for the elderly alone, by the way. Anyone with a mobility issue can make use of these fantastic devices as they provide safe, smooth and easy travel from one level of your home to another. With a stair lift, you can rid yourself of the worry of having your family member fall down the stairs. Preventing injuries is among the top reasons to have a stair lift installed.
By having a motorized chair that can safely transport individuals from floor to floor, you eliminate the possibility of those individuals missing steps. It doesn’t matter if a person is walking up or down the steps, missing a step can create a very harmful tumble. In many cases, people who fall down the stairs suffer broken hips, legs, ribs and other potentially life-threatening injuries. This is especially true for seniors.
How easy is it to use a stair lift?
You might be surprised at just how easy it is to use a stair lift. At LifeCare Mobility Solutions, we’re aware that older individuals can be hesitant to make use of modern technology. The fear that certain electronic devices are too difficult to use is a common one. However, stair lifts are designed to be incredibly user-friendly.
To use a stair lift, a person simply takes a seat, puts on a seatbelt and then presses and holds the control when ready. A stair lift user has full control over the device as he/she is given the ability to stop the stair lift and change its direction at any time. The rides provided are incredibly smooth and are even considered “fun” by some users. Just ask Wendell Warner, who offered his sentiments in this YouTube video released by Bruno.
“My first ride on a Bruno stair lift was just fun,” he recalls, “and I loved it because I can now get upstairs easily and fast. It’s a smooth ride. It’s just like you drift upstairs and you drift downstairs, so effortlessly.”
