 Stairlifts

If your legs have been injured, or you find yourself having difficulty walking up and down stairs in your home because of your age, you can make your life easier with a stairlift.

What is a Stairlift?

A stairlift is simply a mechanical device that transports a person up and down stairs. There is a chair attached to a rail that is sat in. Once a person is sitting in the chair, they get taken either up or down the stairs along the rail. Stairlifts have been around since the 1930s and are enjoyed today by the elderly, people who have hurt themselves by falling, and other disabled individuals.
