Before Purchasing a Stair Lift, Consider These Important Factors, Lincoln, Nebraska

Seniors and people with physical limitations can have problems getting around the house, especially up and down stairs. A stair lift can move you from one floor to another in almost effortless fashion, reducing your risk of a fall. However, there are things to consider before you make the investment. The professionals at Nebraska's  Lincoln Mobility say you should weigh your options to decide whether a stair lift is right for you and your home.

3 Things To Consider Before A Stair Lift Purchase

Mobility

A stair lift is an ideal way to help the user regain a bit of independence, but you need to have some mobility to use one. A stair lift requires the user to move in and out of the chair safely. Think about whether you have the strength to feel comfortable using a stair lift.

Staircase Style

Stair lift Lincoln NENot all stair lifts are the same. Straight and curved staircases require different types of units. The cost of a lift for a curved staircase usually is more than the price for a unit installed on a straight structure. Talk with a stair lift provider to determine an option that’s right for your home.

Size Of The Rider

The size of the rider is important when choosing a stair lift. If you have long legs and a narrow staircase, you’ll need a unit that allows adequate clearance. You also must ensure the unit can accommodate your weight. Stair lifts have different weight limits, so talk with a professional before making a final decision.

Stair lifts are the perfect option for people who want to remain in their home but need help to get around the house easier. Call the team at Lincoln Mobility at (402) 421-8800 to discuss your needs, and visit them online to view their selection of stair lifts, scooters, walkers, and wheelchairs.
