Have you ever gotten to the bottom of a flight of stairs, looked up to the top, and were afraid if this would be the time that you fell on the stairs? Most would say no, but there are people who find it difficult, if not impossible at times, to navigate stairs. As simple as they appear to be, stairs can be the cause of many injuries if your balance is lost or you step wrong going up or down. Having a stair chair installed in your Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Columbus, Newark, Richmond, Sydney, or surrounding area home will help to eliminate these problems while still allowing you access to all areas of your home. Call the experienced professionals at Custom Home Elevator to come out, do an evaluation of your stairs, and provide you with the different options available.
All About Stair Chairs for The Home
Stair chairs are comfortable to use and easy to operate. The chair moves up and down a track between floors with an easy touch of a button. Our stair chairs can take passengers up curved or spiral staircases and across flat landings. The seat bottom and footrest will fold up easily to be out of the way for others to use the stairs, and the swivel seat turns away from the stairs at the top of your landing, enabling you to get on or off your lift safely, with comfort and ease. Stair chairs are not fixed to the wall but are usually installed directly onto the staircase. There are very basic components to your stair chair – a track fitted to your stairs with its power pack, and a seat fitted to your comfort that suits your needs. You operate the lift by flipping a switch or pushing a toggle in the direction you want to go; when you let go, the chair stops. The great thing about stair chairs from Custom Home Elevator is that while they’re plugged into your standard power outlet for monitoring and charging purposes, your stair chair is battery operated – it will work even in the event of a power failure!
Stair Chairs Have Many Uses
While most people see stair chairs as a mobility device for the elderly who want to age in place, the fact is that stair chairs can be used by many others as well. You may have an injury that makes using stairs problematic, but having a stair chair makes it easy. Sometimes recovering from surgery means navigating stairs poses problems and is slow, but a stair chair makes it much safer and faster. And it’s possible to do a stair chair rental for your Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Columbus, Newark, Richmond, Sydney, or surrounding area home.
