We live in a world of advancing science and technology. There is nothing that technology and mechanics cannot solve, including the problems of the physically disabled. Most of our homes are apartment or independent houses with stairs. And stairs pose a large problem to those who are weak to walk or those who cannot walk at all. And to climb these stairs, technology has worked on, what’s called as stair lifts.
Stair lifts are mechanically movable seats that are programmed to carry the person up and down the stairs with ease. A stair lift is designed as a comfortable seat with arm and leg rests that is coupled with a motor. This device is connected at the corner of the stairs, either the right or the left side. With a push of a button, the person seated on this chair is taken up the stairs or down like a lift, hence the name. Companies and manufacturers are designing many models that suit different needs of the people. Along with brand new models, there are also reconditioned stair lifts.
Features of the reconditioned stair lift
These stair lifts are made for both straight as well as for curved staircases. Reconditioned stair lifts are always tested thoroughly in order to provide the best service with quality and safety. They run on both AC power and on battery when required.
This device is designed with the flexibility of being installed on either sides of the staircase. The device comes with movement controls on the seat’s arm or on the bottom of the seat where it can be easily accessed by the person in the seat. Along with this, a call button would also be installed at the bottom and at the top of the stairs. This is used when the person wants to call the seat down or up for him to use. With positioning angles at 45 degrees and 90 degrees, turning around at the corner will be done smoothly.
Just as the original stair lifts, reconditioned stair lifts have comfortable arm rests and foot rests to ensure that even the smallest ride up and down the stairs is done in comfort.When not in use, the seat can be folded up to make more room. The installation is done by expert engineers with the help of a roller chain
