Maryland Mobility Reveals New Trends in Stairlifts

Share Article

It is widely known that some elderly and disabled people use stairlifts in their homes because they have difficulty climbing the stairs on their own. But now, many other individuals can benefit from having a stairlift as well, including pregnant women on bed rest and people with leg injuries. In addition, installing a stairlift is simpler than ever.

Here is a stairlift installed in a home.  The first picture is the unit folded, second picture is ready to ride, and the third is a user riding the stairlift

For years I put off getting a stairlift installed because of pride. The first time I used my stairlift I realized I should have gotten the lift years ago. I no longer have to struggle with stairs and I can enjoy my home and life to the fullest.

Years ago the only ways to help a loved one who had trouble with stairs was to move them to a one level home or hire a contractor to perform costly renovations, such as adding a bathroom or bedroom to the main level of the existing home. These days, a more affordable solution is to install a stairlift - also commonly called a chairlift or a stair glide.

Stairlifts can provide a great deal of freedom and independence, avoiding the need to rearrange an occupant’s home. They can be fitted quickly and simply, often within 24 hours after it has been ordered. Stairlifts are also available in various lengths and configurations to accommodate straight, L-shaped, curved and even spiral staircases.

Most modern stairlifts, like the ones offered by Mobility Lifts, are reliable. They are controlled by an easy-to-use joystick or handset. In the event of a power outage, the battery backup system ensures that the stairlift will remain in continuous operation without interruption. They also use a rack-and-pinion drive system ensuring a smooth, quiet ride. Simply vacuuming the track monthly will ensure years of trouble-free operation. Stairlifts are virtually maintenance free, which means there is no need for costly maintenance plans or contracts.

Stairliftsare generally not covered by insurance plans, including Medicare/Medicaid, but in many cases they are fully tax-deductible. Financial assistanceis often available to people who may need help with paying for a stairlift, so it is a good idea to check with the local or state government for available programs. Overall a stairlift can be an affordable, cost-effective asset by giving the user years of independence in his home.
