I know. At first glance, having stairlifts installed in your home may seem such an extravagant thing to do but if you truly care about your loved one and want to make sure that nothing harmful and which could be prevented could happen to them, you should know that a AmeriGlide Stair Lift can certainly decrease the risk of accidents happening.
With elderly people, one of their gravest concerns is when they’re forced to go up and down the stairs, especially when the steps are quite narrow. With a home stair lift, you’ll be able to breathe more easily knowing that all your loved one has to do is press a button on the joystick and within seconds, he’s transported to whichever floor he’s heading for.
If you’re convinced already about the extreme usefulness of stairlifts, here are some features that a good stairlift product must possess.
Naturally, whatever you’re about to purchase, it’s always more preferable to purchase a product that has lifetime warranty than one that only has, say, four months worth of warranty.
Rack and Pinion Drive Type – The rack and pinion drive type of stairlifts is most preferred by consumers because not only does it run more smoothly compared to other drive types of stairlifts, its machine also runs more quietly so if there’s a constant need to use the stairlifts, people who are still sleeping or have the need to concentrate on a particular matter wouldn’t be that bothered by the noise.
According to some reviews made on residential stair lifts, consumers usually prefer stairlifts that run on DC power because it’s supposedly safer and guarantees smooth running of the machine, more so than an AC powered chair stairlift product could.
A lot of companies boast that all of their stairlift products are easy to install and so it may be for those gifted with understanding instruction manuals. If you’re the type who still doesn’t know how to operate your DVD player, my advice for you is to ask the manufacturer to send a technician who can install the product for you. Stairlifts would after all be used by either the elderly or the infirmed so you must be as careful as possible.
Primary Use – Not all stairlift products may be used in any type of setting. If your staircase is quite narrow, you may be forced to use one that’s particularly built for narrow stairs but these products normally has less features compared to others. There are also stairlifts that are just built for indoor use so if you want one for outdoor use, you need to find a product that could serve such a purpose.
