The best way of being independent when you are plagued by some form of physical disability is using handicap stair lift. This stair lift is a bit too costly so before you spend after this stair lift, you need to make the right choice. Here a brief review of how it functions.
Basically two types of stair lift are there, the straight stair lift and the curved stair lift. They are then again classified into DC Battery operated stair lift and AC mains electric stair lift. The curved stair lift is quite expensive than the straight. The manufacturer will let you know what kind of stair lift you can use, depending upon the landings present in your house.
Recently, certain stair lifts, running on main electricity were showing some problems. Like, they were showing noisy units, trailing cable etc. the biggest disadvantage being, they cannot be used during the power cut. Therefore, these days the stair lifts are mostly battery operated.
Still the main powered stair lift has some advantages. They can be used as much as you want, unlike the battery operated stair lifts, which needs to be recharged from time to time. So make a wise investment.
These are some companies, manufacturing Handicap Stair lift.
The Acorn Super-glide 120 stair lift is a good device, running on battery unit. There are many standard features like the safety sensor, which locks the stair lift, when is detects some obstacles, flip up foot-rest, swivel seat, fold up etc. there is a facility of safety belt as well.
Summit chairlifts are quite reasonable and are likely designed. But the safety belt is not available in this case.
Bruno stair lift is a good choice for curved stair lift. Stannah is also good. The Bruno stair lifts are mostly battery controlled. Among all the stair lifts, Bruno Electra-Ride III Curved Rail is the best.
All these will be a good choice if you are planning for a stair lift. So choose your favorite stair lift and make sure that it has all the desired features.
