People often underestimate the problems with mobility pregnancy can cause, we actually receive a lot of rental queries from individuals hoping to find a stairlift for the third trimester.
Leicester (PRWEB UK) 20 March 2013
Some may not see how stairlifts can help heavily pregnant women, many can get by without ever using one during their pregnancy. Yet, with the number of stairlifts installed across the UK in private and public buildings increasing, Oakland Stairlifts are attempting to draw attention to the ways in which the technology genuinely benefits women during pregnancy.
During the final months of pregnancy, a woman’s centre of balance changes substantially, and stairs begin to pose a risk. Needing to lean back further, a steep staircase might prove to be too much. A stairlift gives pregnant women the ability to traverse her staircase in safety and comfort.
Over the course of a single pregnancy, a woman can expect to visit her doctor around thirteen times for tests to monitor the health of their child. Many doctors provide stairlifts for their patients to use, and while these may seem unnecessary at the beginning of a pregnancy, the chance to avoid climbing difficult staircases is appreciated towards the end.
Considering this, Oakland Stairlifts have announced the advantages of stairlifts for pregnant women, in terms of both safety and convenience. A Customer Service Representative for the company was available to comment: “People often underestimate the problems with mobility pregnancy can cause, we actually receive a lot of rental queries from individuals hoping to find a stairlift for the third trimester, or even due to injuries among pregnant women.”
When pregnant, women release a hormone called Relaxin, lubricating their joints in preparation for birth. A side effect of this hormone can be women injuring themselves more easily, dislocating hips and pulling muscles, which can often lead to a temporary loss of mobility.
Whilst a majority of pregnant women manage fine without the use of stairlifts, many use them to minimise potential risks, relieving their joints and compensating for altered balance.
Oakland Stairlifts are stairlift suppliers based in the UK. They offer a wide range of stairlifts to customers and businesses, helping people nationwide retain their mobility.
