Stairlifts or lifts for stairs are the most economical and compact accessibility solution on the market: it is a mechanical device installed on the wall with a seat that runs on a rail parallel to the staircase.
By simply pressing a push button, this electric stairlift goes gently and slowly up and down a rail, with total safety and comfort for the user. At the end of the journey, the mechanical stairlift automatically stops while the seat is rotated manually. The seats are foldable, allowing for greater use of space, and they incorporate a harness or belt to prevent falls when going up or down.
Current models even incorporate new safety measures, such as obstacle detection. And all of this at more than reasonable prices. A platform stairlift is very similar to a chair stairlift, but instead of a chair it features a platform for wheelchairs, and therefore, requires more space and a more powerful mechanism.
