Hempstead, New York (PressExposure) January 13, 2010 -- When old age takes control of you, the hitherto simple actions such as climbing the stairs of your home can become very difficult. Arthritis and other muscular diseases take a toll on the aging people. For such persons, climbing stairs can be really annoying and unsafe too. In order to help these individuals, one can think of installing a home stair lift system.
With a home stair lift system, individuals can move up and down the stairs with more safety and without much effort. These stair lift models feature a motorized chair that is fixed on an aluminum track which ensures comfort and safety while you move up and down the stairs. There are also models which are especially designed for those users who are more comfortable standing than sitting. Home stair lift systems can be installed on almost all models of staircases. Home stair lifts for straight stairways are easier to install, and also less expensive than those meant for curved stairways. Apart from the stair mounting models which occupy more space, home stair lift systems are also available in models that can be mounted on the wall.
In normal circumstances a home stair lift system can be loaded up to three hundred pounds. When taking into account the safety features of home stair lift systems, almost all models are provided with armrests and footrests, wireless remote controls, call buttons, obstruction sensors and other features. To overcome the power breakdowns, DC model home stair lifts are also available which are more expensive than the AC models.
Home stair lift systems can be installed even in the exterior stairways of your residence so that you can easily move on to your garden or the doorway. By using home stair lift systems, it is possible up to a certain point to avoid accidents such as falling or slipping down from the staircases in your residence.
With home stair lift systems, mobility impaired individuals have the hope of leading a better life, enjoying more freedom of movement without external help. This in turn boosts their confidence and guarantees a better sense of well-being.
