Lakeville, MA (PressExposure) December 08, 2008 -- Keeping up with the latest technology is an ongoing challenge. For Dave Austin, Founder and President of Lift & Care Systems in Lakeville, MA, keeping up with the latest technology is an ongoing mission to better serve the diverse needs of persons with disabilities.
Lift & Care Systems' introduction of the newly redesigned Bruno Electra-Ride Elite stair lift enhances that goal by continuing to break barriers for persons with restricted mobility. Many times the aesthetics of home mobility devices seem to be overlooked. The latest model of the Bruno Electra-Ride Elite stair lift reverses that trend with superior aesthetics that range from streamlined, ultra-compact design and performance, to a choice of seven different types of upholstery.
Notes Austin "Many people who experience restricted mobility actually use only a portion of their home, or even consider moving out of their home, because of the obstacle that stairs present. Understandably, they are sometimes reluctant to consider adding what they think will be a clunky unsightly stair lift that will detract from the beauty and comfort of their home. This new model will certainly change that perception."
Style, comfort, and safety have been integrated in the redesign of the Bruno Electra-Ride Elite stair lift. Enhancements include an improved clamping and rail design for remarkable stability utilizing a rail that hides all mechanical components and ensures that installation will not require modification to the staircase. The vertical, straight rail installs to within 6 inches of the wall so that family members and guests will have no problem using the stairs. The use of two wireless call/send controls also eliminates the need for wires along the wall.
A new, offset swivel seat, makes entry and exit safe and easy, even for wheelchair users. The lift has a 400 lb. weight capacity with a generous seat size that adjusts from 17.75 inches to 21.75 inches between the flip up armrests. The footrest and carriage safety sensors also safely stop the lift if even the slightest obstacle is in the way.
Ongoing performance has also been improved with audio and visual coded-diagnostics that save time when maintenance or service is needed. Two 12-volt batteries, continuously powered from any household outlet, ensure dependable performance, even during power outages.
In addition to the redesigned Bruno Electra-Ride Elite stair lift, Lift & Care Systems offers a range of stair lifts made by Bruno Independent Living Aids, North America's leading manufacturer of stair lifts, including customized curved rail stair lifts and stair lifts specifically designed for outdoor use, as well as straight rail systems.
SureHands Lift Systems The SureHands system of ceiling mounted lifts enables thousands of users with disabilities to have easier access to the basics of bed, bath, or toilet. It is also amazingly able to assist persons with disabilities with everyday tasks such as changing clothes, standing and ambulating, or even taking a swim or mounting a horse.
SureHands patient lift systems are so remarkable that they have been featured on two episodes of ABC-TV's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." During these episodes a SureHands lift & care system was installed to help make a home ADA compliant and enable the resident to transfer and accomplish his normal activities for daily living. This multi-directional SureHands system was mounted to the ceiling connecting the bedroom to the bath, allowing the resident greater mobility, free of floor based obstacles.
